Created for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge. This week's theme is stripes. Striped backround paper had a light covering of gesso, and postage stamp images stamped over in black. The main image stamped onto a pale stripe paper, cut out and attached to the base. Edges inked with Distress ink in Vintage Photo. Stamps by Crafty Individuals.

Created for the Tag you're It Challenge. The challenge was to use a slide mount on your tag. The backround was sponged with chalk inks in Tea Leaves & Purple Hydrangea, then overstamped with an alphabet stamp in Brilliance Moonlight White. A crackle was added randomly in black, and the tag was then spritzed with gold spray. The slide mount was painted with acrylics - Adirondack pesto and Lumiere violet. A little gold kyron was smudged in too. The word dream was stamped at the base, brass corners & fibres added to embellish.

The CD was covered with a background paper, then sponged with Distress Ink in Milled Lavender. A vintage image was applied, and the edges brushed with a glaze made from purple acrylic paint, glaze medium and Tea Dye Varnish. Wooden letter painted with purple acrylic, then with Tea dye glaze. Letter stickers stuck onto purple painted paper before being applied. Flowers added to finish.

For the Saturday Workout Challenge. This ATC stared out as a piece of silver card which was dry emboseed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Alcohol inks were applied in butterscotch, Pesto and ginger. Opals embossing powders were melted around the edges of the card, then image applied.

Created for a challenge group. I used a background made using distress inks in Tea Dye & Peeled Paint. This was overstamped with a Hero Arts Art definition stamp, then collage image were applied. The cards were then finished with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and tiny flower embellishments.
