Clean and Simple, new challenge...

Time for a new challenge at Fun with ATCs,  its Clean and Simple.   So no distress inks etc for me, I went back to basics, using only my Marvey Le Plume pens and Art Impression stamps.  The stamps are very small back with them you can build up a lovey picture.  I used watercolour paper for stamping, coloured stamps withthe pens and huffed, then stamped.  So you you feel inclined please join us.

WoYWW #224- Made It.

 Its WOW time, details over at the lovely Julia's.  So this is my desk this morning, not much going on since last week, except some new stash.  Before anyone thinks, goodness she has alot of money...not the case.
By chance went into one of my local shops not a craft shop I hasten to add, and what did I aspy but Tim Holtz stamps at less than half price.  Not the new ones obviously but the ones have have wanted for a long time but couldn't justify the money, but now i let my self go and bought 7! such greed, LOL.  The arch has had some colour put down and the inside done abit, but it didn't get finished for the challenge I wanted to enter....never mind.
This is the finished artical for the blue tag I had started last week, for Dragon dream Tag it On.
So not much going on for me , thank you for stopping by,  and have a good day.

WOYWW #223 - More Time Needed.......

For details re the great Wednesday blog hop, get yourself over to Julia Dunnit's.
 There never seems to be enough time for everything at the moment.  This is my desk after I left it last night, with 2 bits of work in progress, both for challenges.  The ATCs are  two from my DT work that didn't hit the mark.  Pecking out from the top is my Tag book I did with Tim Holzt in Coventry.  So not much to see, but thought you might like to see my 2 scrapbook pages I just finished of the Coventry event.

 Title says it all

This one is made in the same vain on the Tag Book.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a good day........

Fun with ATCs #96 Stripes

Its that time again for another challenge with Fun with ATCs, this week the challenge is Stripes.  I decide my stripes would the Zebra, so I created a hot African scene, using Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Scattered Straw Distress inks for the background.  I stamped the zebra first and covered with Glue and Seal, then did the background.  Added a few more images and the word.  So why not join us in the challenge.....

Tims 12 Tags- September

Where oh where do the months go, here we are at September already, and a new tag from Tim.

This is my take on the tag, which features only one of the new stencils, as all I have, so improvised with some Dylusion stencils instead.  For all the techniques hop of to Tim's blog and join in.  The big background is a start of an album page, more later.
