Sunday Stampers - Week 11

Hels set this weeks Sunday Stampers challenge which this week is "Travel/Journey/ Transport. Basically, you can use any kind of stamp that features a mode of transport in or on which you could make a journey! This could be a train, car, hot air balloon, flying, sailing, biking or even rollerskating!!" Well I don't have any transport stamps so had to have a good think about this one .... I came up with this card as I figured that walking is a form of transport - hope this is okay.

I used my alcohol inks to make my background onto which I stamped my image. I used latte, ginger and caramel alcohol inks and then added just a touch of demin and then dabbed with a bit of ink out of my gold krylon pen. Once I was happy with the look of my background I spritzed it with some gold glimmer mist. I then stamped the Papgerbag Studio's stamp onto the background using an adirondack black ink pad. I then layered the image onto some green card, gold card and then some cream card and finally mounted this onto a light green A6 card. I added a little grungeboard heart which I coloured in gold using my krylon pen.

My First Skinny

This is the first Skinny I have made. For those who don't know what a Skinny is, it is simular to an ATC but the size has to be 3" wide x 5" tall. As with an ATC, you can decorate / embellish it how you like.

I cut my card to size and covered it with a swirly background paper. I stamped my little fairy (lLost Coast Designs) stamp onto white card using stazon black ink and then layered this onto some black card. I used my "Dream a little dream" stamp and just stamped the Dream onto white card and layeed it onto black card to match the main image. I then added 2 papermania black buttons and a papermania flower attached with a black brad.

I made this for the Skinny Saturday challenge blog - this weeks theme is open, so you can make what you want.

Long Tall Sally

This is a bookmark I made for this weeks challenge on Funky Fairies blog - which was "I want you to make something tall and skinny"

I used worn lipstick and tattered rose distress inks to make the background of the bookmark. I then used fired brick distress ink and stamped the swirl stamp (Paper Artsy) over the background and added fired brick distress embossing powder and heat set it. I then stamped the heart swirl and sentiment stamp onto some pink paper using a black ink pad and added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I tore the paper around the sentiment and I cut out the heart and mounted them both onto the bookmark. Finally I edged it with fired brick ink and added an eyelet and some pink fibres.
