Tim's September Tag

The technique for Sir Tim's September tag is all about ghosting, using  blending solution through a stencil onto glossy paper, then running it through some alcohol ink from your craft mat, where the blending solution is there will be a slight resist to the alcohol ink. another fabulous tag by Tim!!! I mean...seriously!! where does he keep getting these fresh new ideas from?? bet that man never ever sleeps!!! Anyhow... this is my take on his September tag. PS.....has anyone got any tips on photographing glossy paper??? my tag is so much more vibrant and clear in real life!!!! I kept it away from the light and took a million photo's before just having to settle with this one.....sigh!!!

Feather and Fur

O.M.Geeeeee what a frustrating week I have had.....NO INTERNET CONNECTION!!!!!...I mean... what the heck did we do before mobile data I will never know!!! anyway...phew...I'm back in the land of the living. I made this card last week for Kaz's Animals and Birds challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge, so have been waiting....not so patiently.. to upload it, but as my home internet wasn't working, which means my wifi wasn't working on my phone, I used up all of my data allowance for the month...geeeeez!!.    I know this card is a little bit cheeky, but these are what come to my mind sometimes, and you just gotta roll with it. I did the background just with my brayer randomly squidging bits of paint on some paper, rolling my brayer over it and seeing where it goes, then I used the tim holtz chevron stencil on the bottom, but it just leaked underneath and looked a total mess....ruined!!! so I went round the chevrons with a white gel pen....salvaged.

troublesome Teen

The first Wednesday of the month marks the start of a new challenge today at the Hambo Hoedown, and the challenge is to make a card for the kids/teens.  I thought I would have a go at making a card for a girl teenager I know who is such a drama queen it is unbelievable!!! I don't know if it is because I have had sons but....and this is a generaslisation!!! teenage girls seem to have twice the attitude that boys have!! I never had any trouble with lip or attitude from my boys, but my friends who had girls have had tremendous trouble with them, answering back, being rude...etc, I know they always grow out of it but man!!! what a time until they do!!! thank heaven for little BOYS!!! For my card I have used the TIARA rubber stamp, why don't you pop on over and join in the fun of this challenge, there are prizes up for grabs.
