Just Hanging About...

I had a lot of fun choosing the winners for the August Challenge, though it was really difficult as there were so many lovely entries.
There's now a new challenge going up on the Crafty Individuals blog for September called 'Hanging about...' and here's the first of my ideas:

It's a diorama card using CI-230 Bird Postcard, CI-209 Trees and CI-234 Branches and Birdcage. I've coloured the background with some Ecoline pastel coloured inks.

Thanks for looking!

PS If anyone can tell me why all the stuff in the right hand column has shot off down to the bottom of my posts and seems to want to stay there, I'd be very grateful!
Ignore this - I've sorted it - it was an error in one of the previous post's links.

Not at all what I expected...

Do you ever get that - you start a project and it turns out completely differently to what you'd sort of planned? This was one of those - that's my explanation for a rather Hallowe'eny card in the middle of August!
It uses one of the new Crafty Individuals stamps, the crow one, which I saw and was immediately drawn to. So I stamped it and coloured it and then couldn't work out what to do next! (I think it was my very yellow moon that stumped me!)

Thanks for looking!

A couple more...

Here are a couple more ideas for the Bright and Beautiful Challenge over on the Crafty Individuals blog.
This first one uses the Travel to Paris stamp (CI-260), Postmark background stamps (CI-307), spray inks and colour taken out with bleach:

This second one uses an old piece of oval stampbord and the Girls on the Beach stamp (CI-284)

Thanks for looking!

Butterfly bright...

Here's another idea I had for the Crafty Individuals challenge 'Bright and Beautiful'

This is a card and uses the Steampunk Butterfly CI-296. Very versatile stamp this.

Thanks for looking and get entering!
