Happy Thursday


Another lovely sunny day here and no plans for the day at this particular moment but ...... most of our days just sort of grow organically anyway so who knows what's going to happen. We DO need to replace a panel to the screen room - if it's not too hot and we are out to dinner with our neighbours this evening but other than that ..... the world is our lobster so to speak!

ATC fest this morning ...... made these yesterday ...

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • White card, cut to ATC size and coloured using Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Fired Brick
  • Stampers anonymous circles stamped in Color Box coral
  • Studiog dots inked in Memento posies, multiple times
  • Stampers Anonymous star inked in Color Box gold multiple times
  • Studiog sentiment inked in Memento sweet plum
And another one ...

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • DCWV old world stack offcut
  • Magnolia image, coloured using alcohol markers and crystal stickles

  • Studiog sentiment inked in Memento posies
And there's this one ....

  • All images except the text and star are by Studiog, the text is Prima and the star is Stampers Anonymous
  • Banner inked in Brilliance Mediterranean blue, sentiment, bird house and bird inked in Memento sweet plum.

  And finally on the ATC front - this one .....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Black card to cover ATC
  • White card cut slightly smaller and colour washed using blue and green water soluble wax crayons and a baby wipe to blend. I added a little yellow and blended again - to create the sun
  • The image was coloured using alcohol markers and water soluble wax crayons - I've had the image quite a while and can't remember who it's by - sorry
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in Ranger Archival jet black
  • Crystal stickles to highlight the flowers
Hope you like them, four more for my collection! And then I moved on to a card, using an image I seldom think to use ........ and can't remember who it's by!

Materials used:
  • C6 white card and matching envelope
  • Two black card panels
  • Two Kraft card panels
  • Offcut of a DCWV chevron patterned card, punched with four holes and eyelets set
  • Twine
  • White card on to which I inked the foliage of the tree image in Memento bamboo and the trunk in Versamagic ginger - this tree was made up of cling stamps from two manufactures, neither of whom I can remember!!!
I also stamped the tree on the envelope and insert - though I made my first insert landscape!!! Ooopsie, on to Plan B then! It's starting to look like I've used up a few of my odd pieces of card this time - YAY, only another pound or so (weight) to go .........

Happy Thursday
