Crafty Makes

Good afternoon crafters! .... Thought I would share my few crafty makes with you today :)

The first two  are book marks that I made using Inkylicious stamps on a chalked background then run through the laminator... turned out quite nice I think.

My next makes are using Stampscapes  AND Inkylicious images,  The first one is a mixture of Stampscape images repeated to make the scene..., adding a spot of Jelly Roll Soufle white pen to the tops of the mountains.  I then mounted it onto a MDF oval plaque and finished it off with some rope as you can see. 

And finally my last bits :)  ......  Over on Stampscapes, Kevin, the man behind the videos does some absolutely amazing work with his stamps and one of them is using Stampbord with his images ....check out this link on You Tube ..... Anyways I decided to give the technique a go, I used ATC sized Stampbord and made them into fridge magnets :)  not perfect I know but you know what they say ... practice makes perfect 

Hope you like my crafty work today ? .... Have a good day.

I have also been experimenting with different things and am quite pleased with the result of my latest project so thought I'd share it with you :) ..... I really am soooo out of touch here but I might even enter some challenges if I can remember how to or even where to find them again...lol

My project is a mixed media canvas....it's also my first attempt so with a few tweaks here and there my next SHOULD be better ...hope you like it.

 I thoroughly enjoyed this project and even though it didn't turn out  quite like I had hoped it would I have hopefully learned a lesson or two along the way for the next one :)  I hope you like it too ?

Hi everyone!  it's been a while since I last posted anything so will make it a quickie :)  
 I was asked to make a wedding card recently and although its not needed until July I was adamant I would do it in plenty of time and hopefully get me back in the swing of crafting again and hopefully entering challenges.

This pic shows the card closed on top of the box. 

 .....and opened up 

.... and the close up 

Thank you for popping by today ....hope you liked my card and I hope to see you again real soon with another :)

Red for Remembrance

Hi again!  can you believe this ...2 posts in the same day ...lol  this is something that defo dont happen very often if at all really, Anyway this card is one I made last night ...I don't usually craft in the evening due to bad lighting so was keeping my fingers crossed it turned out ok although I had already coloured my image in the morning. This is a first for me because I coloured this beauty entirely with Polychromo pencils ...including skin, am not that happy with my colouring  tbh but this way is still new to me so am a mere novice.
