My 'Word' for Just Us Girls

Hello and Welcome. It's Saturday and
a New Month of Challenges at
You know what it means when we start a new month - 
Shawna Standish from The Grand Stampede  has been chosen
  to be our Guest Designer for March
A Warm Welcome Shawna.

I'm Hosting and chose Animals
for our Word Week.

So much choice here and after much thought
and changing my mind several times I came up with
something I have had for 'years' in my stash.
It is simply a sheet with images from Creatief Art Belgium
SWK30-041 to cut out
and pop up to give a lovely illusion of depth.
I wasn't sure if I should add something to the corner
but after good advice I left it free and add
something appropriate inside.

Open it and see what is inside.
and open again for a wish for the recipient.

Pop over and admire what our Guest Shawna created
and of course  my Oh So Talented Team Mates.
I am sure there will be all sorts of traditional
and quirky animals running riot in the Gallery.
Hope yours is there.
You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week
and you are in the mix for a Guest Spot in May.

Thanks for dropping in

A Threefer of Tag Treats for Creative Artiste

 Hello and Welcome to my playtime for

I wasn't sure what I wanted to make this time
and decided to get out my gel plate for some backgrounds. 
I cut out three tags using heavy watercolour paper.
The effect I was looking for with the gel plate didn't happen
 as I found a few of my TH Oxide inks 
didn't cover the way I wanted
so added some Magical Powders and Lindy's Sprays
 for a more covered background.
Then the next day I cut out 3 more tags
and tried again. I then had six tags to play with
to see which ones would get the final touch.

I used so many different products and will try my best
to name most of them.
Tag 1
TH Oxide Inks Lindy's Sprays
TH Stencil
Texture Paste
AALL&Create, That's Crafty and Visible Image Stamps
Glitter Embossing Powder
Wool for the bow.
Tag 2

Bronze Embossing Powder

get creative and add your mixed media project this month.

Stencil Time at STAMPlorations

 After we had February off the STAMPlorations Girls have been getting creative again.
The March Stencil Challenge is up and running
and here is what I had fun making as part of the Team.

Once again I delved into my bits box and came across
this background using reinkers and liquid pearls.
You may have seen another card I made recently 
using the same technique.
I got out one of my 'older' stencils 
and stenciled with Black Starlight Wax.
Next I added some crackle stenciling in the corners
using another favourite Sanna Lippert's Fairy Tale Forest
was heat embossed on to vellum.
Scored either side for effect. 
Finished by attaching to black card base.

Here are the products I used.

Pop over and see what my ARTplorations Team Mates created
for your pleasure this month. 
Hope you can play and I will be back in the 
middle of the month to remind you with another card.
