Quirky Crafts. This time it is Lyn who has set the challenge of spooky/Halloween or a recipe of black, gold and glitter. Now, I am not a Halloween fan, but I was given some 'spooky' images to work with and was given a free spooky looking stamp with my last order from Crafty Individuals so decided to combine the two to make this tag. The bats and poison symbols come from our sponsor, Limited Runs and I coloured the tag using distress inks and promarkers. As this tag does have a Halloween feel I am entering it into Stamp with fun, Tuesday throwdown, and Meljen's, all of which have Halloween as their themes this week.
Less is More this weekend. Their new challenge is a one layer card featuring at least one heart. My first attempt was a disaster so I took inspiration from Mandi's card and cut out a heart to use as a mask and then stamped autumn leaves into the mask and added red gems for berries and a few sakura stardust sparkly highlights (sadly they don't show up in this photo). To me this feels like a pile of leaves, or a hand full of leaves thrown in the air by a child! I am entering this into Simon says stamp 'sparkle and bling', Stampin for the weekend 'Autumn colours', Speedy the cats friends 'no designer papers' and SCSC 'Anything goes plus sparkles'.
Sketchy Thursday sketch. This features Alex's 4th Birthday trip to The Deep in Hull. I am entering this into sew many cards 'anything goes' challenge. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone...I am hoping that my new laptop will have arrived and been set up by the time I post next.
