Steampunk woman

I had a lot of inky painty fun creating this tag, I've sprayed and painted the background using a honeycomb stencil. I've dry embossed the cogs and highlights them with gold acrylic paint. Also some tissue tape highlights.
I've then stamped the woman and the boot from Rogue Redhead Design Stamps Winter Women, and  the sentiment is from This N That.

She's a pretty versatile kind of girl, isn't she!

have a great end of week and weekend.

We're also featuring tags, so heres my tag:

Floriculture Tag

I've used Distress inks and acrylic paint to create both my background and the colouring of the stamps, I wanted to create a tag that was soft and feminine.

Tag the Words

I'm enjoying a bit of free time to just play and have fun, I made this tag with some left over acrylic paints on my palette :-)

I've then used distress ink and the honey comb stencil to add more depth to the background and then stamped and smooched. I then covered the whole tag with Beeswax, and added some extra gold acrylic paint on the edges.
Love this quote - perfect bookmark I reckon.


A Vintage Journey-Say it With Words, exciting to be joining in the fun for their 2nd challenge.

Unruly Paper Arts Reader Art Quest 2 - any elements from the mood board- I've grabbed the pink and the cracked pattern.

Cute Winter Inspired Card

Over at Rogue Redhead Designs Holiday Inspiration Club this month, we are creating our own backgrounds.

I've used the snowflakes, from the cute Beatrix Potter Winter stamp set, to create my background, and I added some glitter.

Isn't that mouse just the cutest?

Transport at the Craft Room Challenge

Another fortnight has whizzed by, and it's time for a new challenge at the Craft Room, We take it in turns to pick our themes. The lovely Suzanne chose the theme of Transport, sadly for personal reasons she's had to step down from the DT, but we decided to run with her theme as it's such a goodie.

Our sponsors are Crafty Individuals.

I've used one of their new stamps CI-404, just love this steam train, I think it's going to get a fair bit of use.

You make Me Happy

Well would you looky here, I actually got inspired to take part in a few challenges, it's been sooooooo long.

The first challenge that caught my eye was Case Study- with this stunner of a card, and the DT work equally WOW!

And then over at Just Add Ink- it's been an age since I had chance to join in, they're celebrating Sale A Bration, and there's some more lovely cards to inspire you :-)

I've used one of the SAB stamp sets on my card, such a cute set. I've created the back ground with Dylusions inks on Glossy Card, I've also smooched  some gold. Then with black Archival ink I've stamped the sentiment. I added the grey bow, as my grey skies....
Always a lot of fun creating backgrounds this way.
Have a great week everyone.
