Gothic Arch - Things With Wings

UK Stampers have started to do a monthly Gothic Arch challenge, the theme for the first challenge is Things With Wings.

I used a Marianne Design embossing folder for the background and coloured it with distress inks. I put a strip of Dylusions tape along the bottom. I used black card and a Sizzix die for the cat. The butterflies were stamped and punched out with a Martha Stewart stamp and die and I used a Finnabair word stamp.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look. xxx

SPA - Sewing/Dressform

Good morning everyone, I hope you're all having a good weekend.
Sabine has chosen Sewing/Dressform as this weeks theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.

I covered my postcard with some patterned paper from my stash and stamped the images with Archival ink. The main image was stamped and embossed with black powder. I used Stampers Anonymous and Paperartsy stamps but I'm not sure who made the stamp that I used for the stitching round the edge.
My postcard was also made for this months UK Stampers postcard swap.

Below is a photo of some embroidery that I did last week, it's from the winter Craftpod craft box.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look, have a lovely Sunday. xxx Hazel.

Spring Tulips

The weather has been a bit better today, it was lovely and warm in the sun when I walked the dogs earlier today so perhaps spring will be here soon. I love all the spring bulbs that are flowering at the moment, especially tulips, so today I'm sharing a simple drawing of some tulips.

I'm entering my drawing in the Art Journal Journey Spring challenge.

I drew the tulips and coloured them with watercolour pencils. I lightly coloured the background and stamped some script and added some splatters. I stamped the word tulip but its's a bit wonky.

Thank you for dropping by, enjoy the rest of your day. xxx Hazel.

Supplies used:
Paper napkins.
Hero Art flower stamp coloured with felt tip pens.

Black Archival ink.
Distress ink to edge the pages with.

Below are a couple of photos of my tortoise Harry, last weekend he decided it was spring and got up after his four month hibernation. Looking at the weather today I think he might decide that he got up a bit too early.

Dylusions Diary - Week 4

Good morning everybody. I have week four of my diary to share with you today.

The flower page was already printed so I just coloured it with felt tip pens leaving the white border round the flowers, I decided not to add anything else to the page. I decorated the diary page with Just Rite stamps and Hero Art stamps.

Thank you for looking, have a lovely day. xxx Hazel.

SPA - Springtime

Good morning, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

I'm happy to be hosting this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge - the theme I've chosen is Springtime, with the way the weather's been this week spring still seems a long way of.

I enlarged a Gecko Galz image and adhered it to my postcard, then I stamped the flowers with a Stampendous stamp and coloured them with pencils. I stamped some green leaves around the nest with a Paperartsy stamp. The word spring is a Jofy stamp.

I'm entering my postcard in the following challenges
Country View Challenge - Postcards
Moo Mania and More - Think of Spring

Thank you for looking, enjoy your Sunday. xxx Hazel.
