Gilding flakes are ace!!!

Hehe erm well they are a couple of cards I made with my new favourite technique you don't want to stand to close to me in case I try and gild you mwahahahahahaa!!

Anyway I got the Indigo Blu starter kit with gilding flakes and it it brilliant, here is a card I made with an Indigo Blu stamp and mega flakes and I also used some free hand in the corners with a quickie glue pen. Also I got some new dies and I really love those as well especially the holly wreath, which I used on some Coredinations, and finally I added a Craftwork cards greeting in the centre.

I used the same stamp on this one ( sorry the lighting is a bit funny on this photo) only with a different colour gilding flake and then I used some of the silver around the edge as well. I stamped the Get Well Soon with an alphabet set and archival ink. Oh and the background is just distress inks.


Letter L has rolled around and I chose Labyrinth........I just drew whatever came into my mind although as it was in the middle of the book it was pretty tricky because of all the other things on the other pages making it all wobbly......and then to fit in with the rules for this one I made a little window that the definition is hidden behind. I started off not liking it very much but in the end once it was all finished it didn't turn out too badly.

I created a background with Dylusions, distress stains etc. then I drew on the labyrinth with various markers and pens and highlighted some areas with a white gel pen. I tore the window out of a page where I'd been playing with my new gilding flakes and then drew on the bars to look like a window, I did think about cutting a hole in the page and having it look through to the next page but the pages are just to flimsy in the dictionary so I stuck this on instead.

Hello, here are a couple more videos from the Great Tit in the bird house....he or she has been arriving about 6 and leaving at about 7.20 in the morning, and today even came back for mini lunch time nap hehe assuming of course it's always the same bird!

If you look on one of these a spider crawls by and disturbs him!!

Here is a birthday card I made for one of my nephews.

I stamped parts from a robot stamp set and coloured them with distress ink and a water brush, and stamped a number 2 as well.

Then I used the water brush again with distress ink to make the coloured stripes and then stamped on the greeting and letters.

Great Tit returns again

Well bird cam has gone a little AWOL at the moment, waiting for reinforcements to fix it properly although there doesn't seem to be too many birds about at the moment anyway.....but we did get this footage of a great tit in the bird house again the other day......


Here is another Christmas card I made......with little robins.......I had to try really hard not to distress the whole thing hehe and kept it all white instead!!! I stamped some holly in the background and put some glitter on it, and I stamped and coloured in the robins with promarkers and added some gold ribbon.


Another letter rolled round on the Craft Barn's alpha challenge, only just got around to posting it though.

The letter is J and I couldn't find anything to pick, until eventually I decided on Jigsaw and here is the result.

My mom gave me a ink duster brush which I used with distress inks on the background. Then I drew on some jigsaw pieces and the letters, I added a little gold ink around the edge but you can't really see it in the photos.
