I had a little turtle....

This is an Alice Palace stamp from Crafty Individuals, combined with one of their Crafty Elements sets.
So, swim on over and take a look!

Thanks for looking!

Under the Sea....

Today's the launch date for the new stamps from That's Crafty and here's a sneak peek at what I've been making:

Head on over to the blog to see more. The stamps are a lot of fun to use and coordinate well with the other That's Crafty stamp sets.

And finally....

Here I've used the Distress Oxides on a doorhanger. I've done the spritz and dip method and added stencilling over the top.

Joggles stamps (the birds), PaperArtsy stamps, Blue Fern Studios stamps all available from The Craft Barn.

Thanks for looking!

On canvas this time....

Distress Oxides again, this time blending 2 colours straight onto canvas and then stencilling over the top. The colours all hold their own. I've made two slightly different versions:

PaperArtsy stamps and stencil, Blue Fern Studios stamps all available from The Craft Barn.

Distress Oxides....

I've been having a play with my Distress Oxides as I've got a class next week.
Here they are on Kraft card over gesso stencilling:

Really like this effect - soft and chalky.
The stencil and flowers are PaperArtsy and the coffee tin is Blue Fern Studios.

Thanks for looking!

Craty Individuals on Hochanda...

Not so long ago Crafty Individals were taken onto Hochanda by Lesley from Chocolate Baroque. They chose to use some of my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps - trees!
Here are a few of the samples I made:

These are all stamped on glossy card to give a really crisp effect.

Cubbey holes..

This is a Tando Cubbey that I made for the Craft Barn blog using Kim Dellow PaperArtsy stamps and Imagination Crafts Starlight paints:

These come as kits to make up the separate boxes and you can arrange them as you like:

I decide to use the smallest one like a plant plot. They come with or without apertures - personally I liked the apertures as you can get more depth.
