Alas, another year has come and gone.
May your lives be filled with good health, love, peace and tranquility. I hope everyone gathers a little inspiration each day and is fortunate enough to have the time to do something that they love.
Wishing you all a happy and artful 2008!

Another Skinny

The background stamp is another I received for Xmas. Thanks sis!!!!!
The clipart was provided by Kelly of Altered Designs and there are a few other stamps used (Magenta, Quietfire Design and Stampington).
I really enjoyed making this piece.

Skinny's are Addicting

I got this fabulous fountain stamp for Christmas. It's a perfect size for this format. I added a couple of small stamps to finish it off.
I'm quite happy with it.

My First Skinny!!!!!

I found this format really tough. I'm so used to doing ATCs and cards.

I dug out some stamps that I have not used for a very LONG time and had a lot of fun creating this piece.

Thanks, Kelly for inspiring me and providing the clipart!

Another New Stamp

This is another stamp I purchased from Rubberstamp Avenue. I've stamped the image in black Versafine and clear embossed. Next, I've colored this with watercolor pencils and layered it onto a piece of torn blue paper that has been stamped with a Magenta stamp using Whispers Starry, Starry Night dye ink.

New Stamps

I had so much fun today playing with some new toys. The scalloped edge squares are from a Cuttlebug die set I found at Walmart.
The crane image, which I absolutely love, is by Rubberstamp Avenue. I so love their stamps! I stamped in black Versafine and embossed with clear e/p. The image is then colored with Prismacolor pencils and watercolor pencils.
Thanks for stopping by.

I love House Mouse!

This card I CASE'd from the Stampin' Up catalogue. I really like the way it turned out. I used a portion of one of my favorite House Mouse stamps. I used chalks to color the image. The background star stamp is one I've had for ages and never used.
Thanks for stopping by.

Magenta papers

These cards were such fun to make. Very little stamping involved, though. It's amazing what you can do with a sheet of scrapbook paper!!!!

Domino Tray

I made this tray for a dear friend of mine last year for Christmas. At that time I didn't have a digital camera and of course I couldn't scan it. I finally managed to get a picture of it and I thought I would show it here.
The tray itself was unfinished wood which I stamped with Versamark ink and clear embossed. After staining the tray, I heated the embossing powder off to create a resist.
The dominoes were bleached, and soaked in tea bags and then stamped with Staz On ink. The coloring was done using chalk inks and a spray sealer was then applied.
I was quite pleased with the result and my friend loves it!
