Feathers,keys and hearts

I don't participate in many swaps but just recently I took part in an ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap. The theme was open, we could do anything that we liked.

Ages ago I brought a packed of ATC size Sticky back canvas and I finally decided to use it. It is wonderful stuff you can do anything to it and it still sticks.

I coloured and stamped the sticky back canvas with distress inks, the piece of material was coloured with dylusion spray inks, the heart was coloured with distress stain, and gelatos and the piece of paper with the quote was also coloured with distress ink. Lots of messy goodness in this ATC.

Challenge Pack

It is not very often that I actually create something for me, but 2 weeks ago I created a layout.

My local scrapbook store Create on Ormond has challenge packs that you can purchase at the beginning of the month and then you can take the completed design back to the store for a little show and tell and be in the running to win a prize.

The instructions said that we had to include a piece of everything that was included in the pack. A sketch was also provided. Well I can see where my layout came from but I may have changed it a bit too much, oops, oh well it was fun.

Inner Child

When we were kids we loved to colour, but as we got older that favourite past time was push away. Well I went back to my inner child and learnt how to colour in a more adult way.

Scrap It With Attitude is a facebook group, that I belong to and every month they have a couple of challenges. One is a sketch challenge and the other is a Design Team inspired challenge. The Design Team inspired challenge for the month of October is "Use Your Stamps"

I used a Whismy Stamp from the The Kenny K Collection - Craft Star and to colour her in I used my new Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Pens.

Kraft Paper, Chipboard and Flair

Frosted Designs have a new sponsor, StencilGirl. In 2010 Mary Beth decided to dip her toe into the stencil design business, and now provides the art community with the highest quality artist design stencils that can be use many ways.

The challenge this fortnight was to use Kraft Paper, Chipboard and a Flair. I love kraft paper as it is so versatile, but this time i decided not to do anything to it other than put it through my silhouette cameo.

I had sooo much fun creating this background, would you believe it is only one colour of Dylusions Ink and water.

Products I used from the Frosted Designs store are:

UmWow Studio - Dream a Little Dream Flair
UmWow Studio - Arrow Confetti
Dylusions Ink - Dirty Martini
American Craft Cardstock - White
American Craft Cardstock - Black
