Challenge #Sketch  Sketch and Stash
Challenge #Stitch it up  Wildorchid
Challenge #Faux it up  Incy Wincy

For this project I used a digi stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique called "Lizbit" by Stitchy Stamps.  I coloured her with copics and used a fine liner pen to create a faux stitching effect.
The main backing paper were also from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique and the plain paperstock was from Crafters Companion.  The green mirri card was from Create and Craft.

I used a die to cut the strips and sprayed the whole backing papers with varnish and sprinkle some glitter over.  The swirls were cut with Marianne dies  and embellished with a couple of black gems.

The sketch was from Sketch and Stash. 


Challenge #Sketch  Sketch and Stash
Challenge #Snow Totally Stamalicious

For this project I decided to use a stamp I've had for some time - I bought it off ebay when I was first thinking about having a go at stamping.  I have no idea what's it's called only that it was a stamp from America.  It look vintage to me and I love it - so I'm glad that I finally got around to using it.

I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash and the paperstock was from a couple of CD Roms and Create and Craft.

Once again the corner embellishments were cut using a cuttlebug die and the circle image was cut using a Nellies die and then I added a plain circle to cut the top frame.  I used a Marianne die for the foliage and embellished with flowers.

Challenge #Sketch  Craft your passion
Challenge #Nature Stamps R Us

For this project I used another of the Flower Soft Christmas stamps and coloured with copics. I used a glitter and gel pen for the patterns on the girl's coat and boot.

I used a fine liner pen for the border and the sketch from Craft your Passion.

The border pattern was created with a EK punch and the corner embellishment was cut with a cuttlebug die.  The foliage leaves were cut using one of the Marianne dies.

The papers were from the Marianne Christmas collection and Crafters Companion.

Nearly forgot I used star dust stickles for the snow and fur trimmings.


Challenge #Sketch  Craft Your Passion
Challenge#Change of Season  Papersundaes

For this project I chose to use of the Flower Soft Christmas stamp sets I've had for a while but haven't used.  Wanted to try painting with distressing ink but will have to do that another time now.

I coloured this image with copics and spica pens adding some Star dust stickles to fur trim and snow.

The backing papers were from some paper stacks I have in my craft stash.  I used the sketch from Craft your passion.

I used silver brilliance ink pad to distress the image and a cuttlebug die for the decorative corners.  The snowflakes were cut using dies from the Marianne Collection of dies.

I embellished with a couple of clear gems.
