Apollo leads the way

So here is an ATC for the Theme Thursday Challenge, which this week (well until tomorrow - better late than never) has a Man theme. This ATC is coloured with green and purple distress inks using a spritzer and a brayer. Then stamped with the Harlequin pattern and the ornate borders. The Statue of Apollo is actually on a transparency and I've…

Chalk and Ink

Well, I've been experimenting with chalks. Not really used to them yet but having fun trying them out. So this travel-themed tag with the 'E' from explore was made for two challenges.

Sweet Sugar Challenges has a great challenge to make something other than a card with Sugar Nellie stamps. So I decided to have a go at a coaster for cups :) So patterned paper has been layered onto a circular piece of chipboard and then sealed with a varnish (to waterproof it a bit). It was fun to do.

Time’s a ticking…

Friday Sketchers posted a great new sketch from guest designer Heidi and here is my interpretation of it. I went for a brown and green palette with distressing inks to age the paper and print the watch and words background on the cream (colour hasn't come out so well in the photograph) central panel. The prominent time-piece is stamped with StazOn onto…

Card for boys

This card is made for a boy's birthday. It's funny but most of the babies I know, children of friends and family, are boys. So I seem to be making lots of cards for young boys – at the moment. I thought I would go bright primary colours for this one and add texture through embossing (by hand!) and using corrugated card…
