A WEE NOTE

Here is a little notelet I have made to go with a parcel I am packing up to send tomorrow.
I saw this little piglet on another Blog and went over to see, because he just made me smile sooooo much.
Anyways - he is called "Hamlet Pigwit Being Shy" and is the creation of FROM THE HEART STAMPS.  He comes with various sentiments too :-) I got him free with purchase in their Shop ( I bought some of their crazy Bird Brains   LoL) but he is the Stamp of the Month in the Progressive Challenge, so here is my entry for that :-D I coloured him with Spectrum Noir Pencils.

ATC FUN

Here is an ATC I made to send to a friend. I have used "MEDUSA" from the 'Women of Power Set' by SMEARED INK, and I have coloured her with Copics and used glossy accents on her snakes. She is set against a small gold square on a snakeskin mosaic background. The edges were inked with distress stain - Vintage Photo.

Thank you for stopping by :-D

NOT QUITE SO SCARY

Well hello there Peeps,
This is a quickie whilst I am waiting for other stuff to dry, but here is my piece for the latest challenge over at LEFT OF CENTRE - 'FUN FRIGHTS'.
It seems like this poor little spider is looking for his Mummy and has chosen this lovely lady. :-)  LoL
I coloured her with Copics but unfortunately, all my skin colours decided to run out on me and go dry, so sorry about the crap blending !!!! The background is embossed with 'Spider Web' embossing folder from Stampin' Up and enhanced with black ink and the images were mounted on foamies for added pop.

HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE MACABRE MONDAY - GOING GREEN

Haunted Design House

Time for my Minion inspiration for the GOING GREEN Challenge over at HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE.
Either use the colour green in your project, or go green by recycling, green eyed envy monster ......well I guess you get the idea, just nothing cutesy green, we love to see your dark side of crafting.

WARNING: the following creation is pretty gross and disgusting but at the same time childishly amusing !! :-)

This is my creation made with styrofoam and clay nestled on a bunch of tissues,  and the 'green' bits are the drippings from my hot glue gun coloured with Copics..... in "the purest green My Lord"...... - of course !!! LoL


Can you bear the close-up ??????...................



If you'd like to visit the Dungeon and play with us, all you have to do is make a macabre masterpiece for the Going Green challenge and link it here, The Minions will vote for the piece they like the most and the 2 Gruesome Twosomes will be allowed to play with us in the Dark Damp Dungeon.


Thanks for dripping  dropping by :-D LoL

OSAAT #235 AG with DAUGHTERS & GIRLS



This weeks fantastic challenge our theme is
#235 Anything Goes with DAUGHTERS / GIRLS
so a creation for a daughter or just girly looking. My daughter was very high maintenance during her teens/early 20's, with having to have all the latest clothes/accessories and she sometimes changed her clothes 2/3 times a day !!!! This little piece I made sort of depicts her in a way - except she has really long dark hair and didn't wear specs :-D LoL ................


I coloured the image with a mixture of 'paper piecing' for her clothes and bag and promarkers for the rest. I  added some blanket stitch edging to the background and a 'High Maintenance' label  :-D  hee hee . It's a good job that she won't see this LoL

Main Image:  BB KAKES - School 4 Teen  at StitchyBear Stamps

The Sponsor for this weeks challenge is StitchyBear Digi Outlet with the April 5 image prize pack. 
 

There you have it. I hope you will come over and play along with us at OSAAT #235, and have a look at what the other Angels have made to inspire you :-D 

Bye for now  xoxox

NATURE IN THE RAW !!! :-D

Well Peeps - I am in one of my 'strange' modes today and whilst waiting for some paint to dry on my theatre commission projects, I got a bit more messy with some inks and schtuff.
I played with smearing some inks onto paper placed over a bit of burlap to see what the texture did and I quite like the effect.
On top of that I put some moose images and a really scary skeletal man to be in charge of them from DeStempelwinkel   :-D I had to stamp scan and print the moose to get them different sizes and I cut the antlers off the 'girls'. :-D 
The trees are from BECCY's PLACE.

I called this piece.............."THE HERDSMAN".......... and he's showing the 'raw' side of nature :-D

Hello Peeps,
I just popped in to show you an ATC I made with the new 500 Members FREEBIE over at FAERY INK FACEBOOK PAGE......'Gabby The Mermaid'. I got her yesterday and couldn't wait to colour her up.

Promarkers
Perfect Pearl Mists on the background - Turquoise, Forever Green
Moondust Paper from Southfield, The Paper People
De-Stempelwinkel, Designs by Ryn 'Droplet' rubber stamp
Kindy Glitz - Crystalina (on her tail)
Glossy Accents on her eyes
