SPA - Zebra

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Zebra is this weeks theme at Sunday Postcard Art.

For the background I used a Dreamweaver metal stencil with some Dreamweaver matte black embossing paste that I found in my stash - I must have had it for about 15 years and it hadn't gone hard. The zebra is a Miles Beyond The Moon digital image that I printed, I wrote the word zebra onto white card and edged the postcard with a black marker.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look and thank you for all the lovely comments that you leave me, they're very much appreciated. xxx

Your’e a Star

Good morning everyone. Geometric shapes is the theme chosen by Alison at Art Journal Journey

I would also like to enter my page in the Moo Mania And More challenge Cold and Frosty Colours.

The background was a mop up page in my journal. I stamped some stars with metalic glaze on the background but they don't show up very well. I stamped some larger stars [Carabelle Studio] and doodled on them with white pen. I adhered a Tim Holtz paper doll to a large star that I'd cut out of previously coloured card. I drew zig zag lines round the page to frame the image and coloured it with a silver Posca pen. The photo below shows the silver star sequins that I'd adhered to the page.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely weekend. xxx

SPA - Steampunk

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend. The theme for this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge is Steampunk.

I used distress ink to colour the background. The stamps used on the background are Graphic 45 and 7gypsies stamps. I stamped the main images (Graphic 45) onto the card to place them and then I stamped them onto white copy paper, coloured them with pencils, cut them out and adhered them over the stamped images on the card. I added some wash I tape.

Thank you for visiting, you’re all very welcome. xxx

SPA - Wings

This is my first post of the year and I hope it will be the first of many.

Wings is this weeks theme at Sunday Postcard Art, it was lovely getting into my craft room to have a play, it seems to be such a long time since I made anything new.

I collaged some patterned papers for the background and used my finger to spread some gesso in the centre of the card. I then added some splatters. The birds are an image from a Daphne’s Diary magazine, I adhered them to the card and added some remnant rubs.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look. xxx
