Simply HELLO!

 What a fabulous Mood Board Elizabeth chose
as Host for us at Just Us Girls

Check it out with a closer view...

I took a few things from the fabulous mood board -
again playing with my new Artsy Stems dies from Tim
instead of flowers.
My background was picked from the top right
using Liquid Pearls on an acrylic block
and left to dry. Chose the hello sentiment from the middle
and the green tones from the bottom left.
Pearls to the centre and layers to finish.
Head over and see what caught the eye of our Guest Michele
and the Team from that amazing Mood Board
and hope you are inspired and add yours to our Gallery.

Creative Chaos at Just Us Girls

Elizabeth is our Host this week at 
Just Us Girls and chose Rainbow.

I couldn't go past the fun of inking up
Tim's distress inks and wetting them 
on w/c paper to let the colours drip and do their thing.
The sentiment from Visible Image Creative Chaos
fits perfectly here. Heat embossed clear after
inking with VersaFine Clair Nocturne.
Nothing else was needed here just added a
black frame onto white base and I am done.
You will see all sorts of amazing rainbow colours
in all different ways over in our Gallery
by our Guest Michele
and my Talented Teamies.
Check them out and come and have
a whole lot of fun by adding yours.
See you there!

Going Green!

Welcome to my post for Sisterhood Of Crafters
We are looking a little Green - could it be
some people are thinking 
The Luck of the Irish!

I usually do but went in a different direction.
Once again I found a lovely background in my bits box
and a little Mixed Media was created with
stamping and stenciling the background
then inking up this lovely tree
and sentiment from STAMPlorations -  Wild and Free
Distressed the edges and inked in black,
adhering to green card base.
Head over to The Sisterhood and check out how my
Talented Mates chose to use GREEN on their projects.
Hope to see yours there.

#Update Sending this card over to
Try it on Tuesday as they are also looking GREEN

Joy the the World!

We are looking for One Layer cards this month at
Do you find them hard or a favourite?
I'm a layer maker so this was a little different.

With a one layer card sometimes it is
a CAS one which I have here.
Stencils were inked on the background and tree
in traditional Christmas colours,
script stamping to the background.
Finished with a sentiment and inked edges.
Head over and see how the Team created
their one layer cards and come join in
with yours in the Gallery.

We're back at Happy Little Stampers!

 We had rather a long hiatus at Happy Little Stampers
but we are all back now ready to inspire you
 for the rest of the year.
As part of the Stencil Team here is my inspiration for this month.

I recently purchased Tim's Artsy Stems
and have already uploaded another card I made
with these dies and similar colours  Here
Again the stencil I used is from
 AALL&Create  - #58 Mock-croc
using Tim's Distress Inks. I added the
Darkroom Door Coffee Stain with
VersaFine Clair Fallen Leaves
for a background to my die cut.
Unfortunately the colours were too similar
and the flower is a little lost.
I added a touch of colour to the flower
and Nuvo Gloss to the centre,
splatters and a simple sentiment to finish.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and come join in with your stencil card
in our Gallery.
Thanks for visiting.

Be True to You...

I am Host at Just Us Girls for Colour Week and chose
Mustard Turquoise and Black.
Welcome to March and our New Guest Designer
Michele Ferguson.

I was having a play with shaving cream and stencils 
a while back and these colours work perfectly together
You all know I love making backgrounds.

Here is a close up of the layered flower.

Flower, Stencil, Sentiment and background stamping 
are from AALL&Create.
Flower head has been cut three times as you can see
from the close up.
Added thread to the background - 
something Tracy Evans the designer of the
stamp I used does regularly.
Placed a black pearl to centre of the flower.
Backed by black frame overlapping the white card base.
Finished with a simple sentiment.
Head on over and see what our Guest Michele
and The Team created using the colours I chose
and hope you get a chance to add yours to the Gallery.
You could be chosen Chic of the Week
and go on to be our Guest in May.

A Trio of Butterflies...

Hello and Welcome to my post for our 
New Anything Goes Challenge 
For my project and inspiration 
I had a fun but somewhat messy time
(as you do with Mixed Media)
creating three very different  ATC's.

You know me as always I start off taking photos
and get carried away creating and forget along the way.
I started here with torn tissue paper pasted onto my
three ATC's (which disappeared in the end)
then added texture with a favourite stencil
from AALL&Create.

As I had butterflies out for another challenge
I decided to use up a few more here.
After the texture paste dried I added 
Lindy's Magical's in different colours
for each ATC and let it run in various directions.
Collected elements to add to the backgrounds
with inked lace, sisel, cotton thread and a piece of coloured bark.
Coloured the butterfly with the same Magical's
to match the bark
and added a bead to the centre.
Added glossy accents to the butterfly wings.
and added a gem to the centre here.

Finished with some inking on the edges
a little coloured backing and sentiment
from Tim's Small Talk.
Hope you will pop over and see
what was created for you from
our Guest Designers and the Talented Team.

* Stop Press
We have the most amazing talented
Fiona Whitehead joining our Team
I'm Excited! Welcome Fiona.
Hope you can join in with this month's AG Challenge
using Multiple Mediums.

Sending this over to Try it on Tuesday for their
current challenge - Let's Get Messy Challenge
certainly did that!
