Da Vinci

Created for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge. The background was sponged with Distress Ink in Antique Linen, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord. The Da Vinci image was then stamped in StazOn Stone Grey which was then masked and a crackle stamped onto the background in Dusty Concord. Finally the Artist & Art texts were stamped down the side and along the bottom of the card, and inkk splatters randomly around it.

Created for the TMTA Challenge where the theme is buttons. The background was made using a scrap piece of card left from another project, and a piece of torn script paper. Over this the PaperWhimsy collage image was applied, then a small butterfly and the text. The edges were inked in Broken China Distress ink.

Next a piece of white lace was coloured with Glimmer Mist in Patina. This was attached, and small buttons added on top of it to embellish.


Tag created for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge where the theme is wings. A tag was covered with an old book page and coloured with Distress Ink in Tea Dye. The Tim Holtz bird was then stamped in Versafine Black, and a floral stamp in around the edges. Grungeboard flowers were also coloured in black ink and added, and matching fibres tied at the top.

Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge where the theme is eyes. The background was created by sponging the entire card with Lettuce ink, then sponging over the top of this with Oregano ink around the edges. A little Distress ink in Dusty Concord was also sponged randomly near the centre. The whole thing was then stamped over with a linen effect background in Lettuce. Next the eyes were stamped in the centre using Versafine Black. After this, a brick wall stamp was used in the background in Oregano, and a crackle in StazOn Royal Purple. Finally, the text stamp was used 3 times in Black, and the piece edged with Dusty Concord.

Created for a swap and also fits this week's Mixed Media Monday theme "Something New". New because it is part of a collaborative paper bag book swap, which is something I haven't made before, and it also include some of my new collage images.

The background was created using Sticky Fingers sprays in Poppy & Buttercup, plus some Sticky Fingers Lustre Spray in Aubergine. On top of this, I stamped a Hero Arts Flower in StazOn Royal Purple, the Tim Holtz corner in Versafine black, and added also some ink splatters / dots also in black. The collage images were then added and the whole piece edged with Black soot Distress Ink.
