Sunday Challenge

My entry for this weeks Sunday Challenge on UK Stampers.
The background I made using coloured card in blue and beige and stamped swirls in a slightly darker colour, then ripped and applied to postcard with glue stick.
The little 'beach huts' are Paper Artsy minis (Welcome home), I stamped them onto white card used weathered wood Distress Crackle paint on the sides (masking to get straight edges) the doors I coloured with Marvy Le Plumes and the roof I painted with Watermelon Dabber.
the 'sun' is really a moon stamp coloured with a distress ink.

This little book is from 7 Gypsies (4x4) I covered the front and back with some 7 gypsies paper inked around the edges with Vintage photo distress ink.
The 9 little images were printed from a Tuscan Rose vintage images cd (vol 3) which I trimmed to size so they just fitted into a square icecube tray (99p from Tesco) then I poured UTEE which I had melted in my melt pot over and left to cool and set.
These I then applied to the top of the book with lossy acsents and then tied ribbon and cotton lace to the spine.

Well here is my entry for this weeks Sunday Challenge over on UK Stampers.
I know, it's Monday. I just didn't have time to put it on the blog before yesterdays deadline.

The background was made by swishing on acrylics in snow cap, aqua, lettuce and a purple.
All the images were stamped onto tissue paper and applied to the background apart from the word 'Paris' which I stamped sraight onto the background using black Archival ink.

Snow Day

Our garden, this was taken at 2.30pm on Monday 2nd Feb 2009. It was still snowing at 9pm!

Mr Snowman

It was 9pm and the snow was still falling and I really felt the urge to go out and make a snowman, Paul didn't need much persuading either, we had great fun!

Domino swap

Hazel over on UKStampers challenge us to do a domino swap.
This is mine, the Angel is made from a cut out from cardboard covered with embossed metal, the angels face is a mold made from hearty paper clay and the wings are angelina fibres.
The domino is coloured with chalk inks and stamped with a childs face (part of a stamp from La Blanche) then UTEE aplied over the top to seal. wire and stars and beads were added with silicon. The words Dream Angel were added.

These are my ATCs for Sams January swap on UKStampers, the theme 'metal'.
They all have embossed metal backgrounds and various stamped images applied to them.
