Wednesday Stamper - free theme

Wednesday stamper has a free theme this week. I decided to enter with a mixed media piece which i have titled "Friendly Witch". It is strongly influenced by Suzi Blu's techniques. It is mostly hand painted but contains various background stamps, even though in the scan these are hard to see.

Wednesday Stamper - altered favourite object

The theme at Wednesday stamper is to alter your favourite object. I love altering, but up until now i have never put any of my altered things on my blog. Mainly because i am a hopeless photographer and up until now, was unable to get things from my camera onto my computer. However, tonight with my OH lovingly hanging over me I decided it was time to get over my technophobia. So here is my altered object, a tobacco tin formerly belonging to said OH.

The stamping happened mainly on the polymer clay surround, but also a little on the tin itself.

Gothic Arches "paper Patchwork"

Paper Patchwork is the theme at Gothic Arches this week. A fun technique which I have used quite often, without knowing what it was called. The image I used is from Digital Collage.

Saturday's workout "Broken Glass)

The theme at Saturday's workout is actually a wonderful German proverb, that I know works in dutch too, but I have never actually come across in English, namely, broken glass or any chards really, bring luck! What a wonderful thought and a great comfort after you have, say, just broken your most favourite plate, glass or whatever. Anyway, the idea is to create a piece of art with "broken glass" in it. Decided to use the fake method of using Utee. I've had this happen to me a few times when I did not really want it to happen, so it was very satisfying, to do it purposely for once.

Make a Moo or Two "Arrows"

The theme at Make a Moo or Two is Arrows. Arrows actually really aren't my thing, but as I had quite a few unused arrows among my grunge board elements, i thaught I'd give it a go.

TGIF Favourite stamp

The theme at TGIF is "favourite stamp". Great theme, but I did find it hard as I have quite a number of "favourite stamps" (and loads and loads that I hardly ever use at all....)

As I have been busy starting on my christmas cards, i decided to choose one of my favourite Christmas stamps and use that. Obviously a vintage collage stamp, so no surprises there....

Mixed Media Monday "Purples and Blues"

The theme at MMM is Purples and Blues. The example by Rosie is just stunnings. Blues and purples always seem to evoke a kind of mystical feel. I decided to stick with Blues rather than purples, mainly because I have no decent purple colour at the moment. I've given my contribution the title "Feeling Blue"

Think Monday Think ATC "Ophelia"

The theme at TMTA this week is Ophelia. In a way I like this theme, as it will be interesting to see what people come up with, what essencially is the use of a particular stamp, at least I guess so. On the other hand, if you don't own that stamp, what can you do? Well, it will be interesting to see... I do own the stamp used in the example on the site. I did this ATC quite a while back and swapped it with a friend.

Gothic Arches "Haute Couture"

The theme at Gothic arches this week is "Haute Couture".

I probably did not actually meet the theme completely, but I had this gorgeous new digi collage sheet from Digital Collages who have just got a new website (it's great, check it out!). I really wanted to use some elements of that sheet, so used them for this arch.

Sunday Postcard "Men"

The theme at Sunday Postcard is "Men". My main image is a stamp from Oxford Impressions. The frame was a golden cardboard frame which I first covered in one coat of clear Utee. That gave it the kind of mottled effect that in this case I wanted. I then coloured it with perfect pearls to create a kind of faux metal effect. The background was then stamped with various background stamps and coloured with dstress inks

Tag challenge "Autumn"

The theme at "tag you're it" is Autumn. There are some super examples on the blog.

Here's mine.

TGIF "Dolls"

The theme at TGIF is "dolls". Would love to have made an art doll or something, but like usual time ran out, so my contribution is a modest little ATC.

Wednesday Stamper -

The theme at Wednesday stamper this week is to use brown in combination with another colour.

As brown is one of my favourite colours, this was kind of easy. I decided to make a 4 x 4. The main stamp I used was from "Clarity Stamps"

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
