Wednesday Stamper - Charms

Charms are this week's challenge at Wednesday Stamper - lovely challenge. My photography is very off these days but I'm blaming the lack of daylight and my camera, nothing to do with my shaky hand. This is a piece of chipboard covered with glossy paper which has been distressed and some shimmering mists added and finally, Stamp Francisco face stamp. It is then covered with a piece of metal (wine bottle collar :0) ) I scrunched up the metal then covered it in alcohol ink, black stazon and then gold rub on paint, I then tore the centre to reveal the face. Charms were added as a finishing touch.

New Home Cards

There seems to be a lot of people on the move at the minute and I had sent these cards out on Monday for some of them. House is the theme too on Mixed Media Monday so these should be suitable for my first entry there.

The piccie was taken at night so the colours look quite dull compared to irl.

Handmade Felt

This is a little hanging I made for my sister who has just made a huge life changing decision in her life and I'm really proud of her. The quote reads 'In her heart she knew she was ready to fly'. This is also one of the first pieces of handmade felt I had made recently with some silk through it, I also stitched some beads around the edges. The centre panel is painted tyvek which I then stamped and stitched to the felt and added a little handmade cage over the heart and wings. TFL. I have some more pieces to add this week for some friends but will add after they receive them :-)

Wednesday Stamper - Gothic Arch

The challenge this week at Wednesday Stamper is a Gothic Arch. I made this background by firstly staining a glossy card with coffee. I then distressed with inks and water and added acrylic paints to the edges.

I found this quote today on a calendar and I love it and wanted to use it.

You see things and say Why? I dream things and say Why not?
