A Joyful Ride

Over at There's Magic In The Air the challenge is to use this delightful digi and also a punch. I have used my scallop punch to make the flower

Thursday, 26 August 2010


This is most certainly something very different for me. The challenge over at
Simon Says Stamp and Show   is for something Tim Holtz inspired.
I rescued a piece of corrugated cardboard to use as a base, which I tore bits off. Then used distress inks rubbed in to the card. The wings were an experiment on their own, as I kept adding more paint and embossing powder until I got something that I liked. The flower was made with my new spellbinders scalloped circles, and the watch face came from an old watch that would not work any more. I have yet to figure out a way to hang it.

What's new pussy-cat!!

Now isn't he a cute cat with such a curly tail?
I stamped him on a nestie rectangle and coloured his pattern with Sakura pen.
The Happy Birthday is a peelcraft which I coloured black, and the paw print was done with a punch. I smudged the edges with orange to make it stand out a little.

Second post today

The idea for this card I cased from the place I go to for coffee morning/class periodically. I have used one of my new stamps which I am finding very versatile. I would like to enter it in challenge #2 at
The Stampman Challenges
which was to use 2 colours  (teal and silver)
