wings and metallics

Hi everyone.
This is a fabulous picture I made using the swallowtail stamp from SU, and Indigo Blu's gilding flakes, on a black card. It is hard to show the lovely metallic look in a photograph.

Autumn colours

Hi Everyone

This is a lovely set of ATC's that I made for a challenge. This month the topic was 'creator's choice'
I took an A4 size sheet of watercolour paper and sprayed it with dylusions.
I quickly sprinkled some rock salt on and left it to dry overnight.
Next day I cut to ATC size (3.5 inches x 2.5 inches) and used my Misti to stamp the birds from a set I bought in Montreal - Clear Oiseaux by Aladine, a French company. I also added words from another set, but I have lost the packaging.
The white highlights were done with my Sharpie paint pen

Paperbabe - anything goes

Take care and have a great week

Hi everyone. Sorry I have been absent for a bit as we went on a short break in our motorhome. Unfortunately it was cold and wet, but spring is starting to warm up a little.

I cased this card from someone in Australia I think, and I have forgotten the tutorial link. However, mine is a bit different, as I cut the shapes from some black scraps on my Cameo and raided the garage for the washers to give a bit of weight. It spins on the centre mount, and was a great hit for my grandson's birthday.

Hybrid Inks

Hi everyone.
I am sneaking in at the last minute with my entry at Paper Artsy. The challenge this time is for Hybrid Inks.
I used a stencil on the left side of the card, then wiped up the leftover inks on the rest of the card.
I then stamped onto a small piece coloured with distress oxides, made at a play day at my friends house.
I added a small flower to finish

I would also like to enter this one at The Artistic Stamper for 'take a little colour'

Thanks for looking and happy crafting
