Christmas Tree Tag

This week's challenge by Tag You're It! is to include a Christmas tree on your tag - well I've used two, but who's counting! I've gone back to my favourite stamping for this tag - the Christmas tree stamp is by DeNami and the bird on a branch is by Inkadinkado.

Tone-in-tone Moo...

... made for the Make a Moo or Two challenge this week. I've used stamps by Paper Artsy (girl) and Inkadinkado (owl).

Autumn Leaves

I'm in love with the Versamark pen! I've just bought one of these and thought I would try it out on this inchy for the Inchybyinch challenge this week - Autumn Leaves. This was so simple to make - I used a black and white line drawing snipped from an old book, coloured the leaves and acorns with marker pens, went over them with the Versamark pen and embossed with clear ep. Then I sponged some Distress inks over the background to add a little colour. I was pleased with the result - the leaves are lovely and glossy and raised up from the surface. Why have I never bought one of these pens before!??

Pink ribbons

I have combined two challenges again this week - the Tag You're It! challenge is to use pink, brown and green, and the Anything Goes challenge on Craft Swap Forum is Pink Ribbons - to celebrate the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I just happened to come across these pink ribbon tea-bag tiles - perfect for the theme!

Best foot forward

A moo made for this week's Make a Moo or Two challenge: ARROWS. The stamp is by Paperbag Studios.

Autumn ATC

Another ATC on the Autumn theme - this time by Florrie's ATC Challenge on Craft Swap Forum - and the full theme is Autumn... season of fruitfulness. I made this by stamping & colouring the pear and leaves and then embossing with clear ep. Then I sponged Distress Ink over the background and stamped the leaf a few more times with the same ink - Aged Mahogany.

Dance ATC

Having just made a Moo on the theme of dance, I decided to make this ATC for Florrie's Weekly Challenge on Craft Swap Forum where the theme is 'Be Bold'! I've only recently bought this Time to Stamp plate called Dance - and you know what it's like with a new stamp... you can't wait to try it out. But I thought it was a good image for the theme. The background was made by sponging dye inks onto the card, using a piece of torn paper as a mask.

Dance Moo

And here is my Moo for the Make a Moo or Two challenge, DANCE.

Autumn Tag

Made for two challenges: the Tag You're It! and Anything Goes on Craft Swap Forum - both themes were Autumn of course! I have used Crackle Paint and Distress Ink on the background, before stamping with a leaf stamp, and the letter 'A' is clear acetate coloured with alcohol inks.

Dans ma maison...

...there is a woman. A little house made for the Dans ma maison... challenge, also for the Wednesday Stamper challenge this week which is 'Brown Combo' - to use brown with other colours. I decided to use yellow and a touch of gold here. The picture of the woman is from art-e-zine.

It's raining again!

It is raining here at the moment and on this Inchy - for the Inchybyinch challenge RAIN. I have added some tiny drops of Glossy Accents on the umbrella, to look like rain drops, but sadly they don't show very well in the scan.

An ATC with more leaves...

... this time for Florrie's weekly challenge on Craftswap Forum. I have stamped the background and the leaves with Versamark ink and then coloured with chalks. The quote is a Rhonna Farrer rub-on.

Altered flowers tag

Here is my tag made for the Tag You're It! challenge which required us to use an 'altered' fabric flower. I've used a piece of grungeboard for the base of the tag, inking it up with Distress Inks and then spraying with Glimmer Mist. I've used two silk flowers - one was covered with gold Krylon pen and the other was stamped with a text stamp and StayzOn ink.

Clock Moo

Made for the Make a Moo or Two challenge this week on the theme of clocks.

Vintage house with leaves

I made this house for the Dans ma maison... challenge: VINTAGE. But having put the leaves on the front, I thought it would serve for the My Time to Craft challenge of trees and leaves as well!
