Compass and Cogs

I bought myself some new Tim products and had a play
this is the result.

I used Deco Art paints and Tim's crocodile stencil.

I have a cog die that cuts the most amazing cogs.
these I embossed.  

I stamped the 'A' stamp of Tim's classic plate on to my
 textured beer mat.

this had been painted with deco art paints.

I stamped the compass onto white card and glued
 it onto the beer mat. 

I stamped the 'A' onto deco art painted card and ripped 
it and glued that onto the beer mat.

Treasure gold was applied to the textured piece's

Three brass sequins from my stash were applied to the 
right hand corner. 

Deco Art crackle paste was applied around the edges, 
painted then knocked back with black.
I hope you all like it. Thank for popping

So Sorry!

Not sure what has happened here think it must be little gremlins  in my computer that have re published an old blog. so sorry this is old but still amazingly good of course!!

       A brief discription
I am thrilled to confirm I am one of the lucky ones chosen to join the artistic stamper creative team call out. I have waited until this could be announced by Jennie on her blog and as this is my first time doing anything like this, so please give me feed back if you feel there is any way I can improve my blogging. Below are a few cards that I have done in the past, as a sample of my work. As you can see I am partial to the odd dragon fly and clock and this is still true of my recent work. A good friend of mine discribes my work as elegant grunge.

Boulder Bling

Hi everyone hope you are all busy crafting away, I have done a piece today 
that I am going to enter into the challenge over on the Paper Artsy blog.

I did this panel with Jo Firth Christmas stamp's and a sweet poppy snowflake

The project that got me to make this was the gift folder with 
Sarah Neumann and electrica stamps.

I really liked the colours in this post so I thought I would do a post with 
these colour's in mind.

Thats how it started and then as with all my pieces it took on a world of its own.

As with all of my pieces I added texture and I stamped the boulders 
onto tissue paper.

I put texture paste through the sweet poppy snowflake stencil.

The holders were painted from behind in hint of mint and snowflake

I put clear embossing powder over the paint and heat set.

This gave the impression of snow balls melting i quite liked the effect.

Onto the snowflake's I painted with watered down plum and marlin.

Also turquoise was used but they were all diluted down so as not to overwhelm
the illusion of snow.

I swiped the slate over the texture paste that had been put down the sides.

I then swiped with hint of mint.

I added bits of bling from my stash.

treasure gold whitefire was used to highlight the texture.

I hope you all enjoyed my post.

Here is the link back to the original post and colour scheme that I used

Thank you all for popping by please feel free to leave a comment or two,
as this is food for my art.

A very special 21st

Hi everyone I hope you are all OK I have a card for you today.
this card is really quite simple to make I used the main
 image off the Lynne Perrella stamp collection

I coloured card with Dylusions sprays in the following colours
Cherry Pie, pomegranate seed, chopped pesto, 
ground coffee, slate grey and spritzed 
with a bit of water.

                                     I then choose the bit of card that I liked the most and I then 
                                      stamped the image with black vera fine and used clear 
                                                        embossing powder then heat set.

I used media fluid paint in gold to highlight area's of the main image.

Brass brads were used on each of the corners.

Tim Holtz Numeric CMS161 stamps were inked up with embossing 
ink and stamped on to black card then gold embossing powder 
was used twice and some lava Black cosmic shimmer
 Ultra Thick embossing Crystals were then 
sprinkled on.

I used a gold paper I had in my stash to back it all onto.
I hope you all liked the card today. Thank you for 
taking the time to stop by and please feel free to 
leave me a comment or two.
