My First House

This is the first house I've made. It is for a swap I've joined and I have to make a total of 10 houses.

I used thick white card and cut out the house shape. I then used distress inks and gold glimmer mist and the stamps I have used are from Paper Artsy.

Inky Pocket

Today I have made a pocket for Hels in my pocket challenge. The challenge this week is to have a bottle cap hidden inside your pocket.

I used a thick white piece of card and cut it following the instructions on Hels blog. I used various stamps and adirondack & distress inks and of course a bottle cap into which I put a fabric flower with gem centre.

I'm quite pleased with the way my pocket turned out as I used only inks and stamps (no papers or extra card), and I used the masking technique a couple of times too.

Basic Grey ATC

Whilst blog hopping I came across a new challenge site which is based around using Basic Grey products. Unfortunately I missed the 1st weeks challenge, but I have joined in with the 2nd challenge, which is to make an ATC. The challenge blog can be found here.

For my ATC I used Basic Grey aged & confused paper from the sublime collection as a base for my ATC. I then stamped the girl photo art collage stamp (I Brake For Stamps) using versamark green ink directly onto the BG paper. I used various other word/saying stamps, again using green ink and then cut out the words I wanted to use. I tripple embossed the saying believe in your dreams (Cats Life Press). The other words I used 3d gloss on to make them stand out.
