Sunday Challenge 16

Here's my entry for this week's challenge. Can't believe I never used this lovely Santa stamp from The Artistic Stamper before - it's gorgeous! I have to say that I tend to make more religious type Christmas cards so that's probably why.

Sunday challenge no14

I know I set these challenges but sometimes I find them a bit on the tricky side!

I have no stamps relating to fireworks so I improvised and used a flower stamp instead!

So here's mine!

Sunday Challenge 14

Three fireworks tags, same stamp, different colourways. Backgrounds are distress inks and various sprays - glimmer mist, glitz spritz, firework burst. Stamp (an old freebie from CS!) embossed with Moonglow powders.

Fireworks tags

Sunday Challenge No 14

Not finished, and not really a good photo! The tag on the right has lots of dots of Stickles, the one on the left uses silver paint. These will make great bases for something, but I did want to show the work in progress as the new challenge will be up today!

Sunday challenge no14

Remember , Remember the 5th of November...
Fireworks, that's this weeks theme.
Design a set of 3 tags using just one stamp, each tag to be a different colour combination.
Post your tags here on the blog!
Happy stamping.

Sunday Challenge 13

Halloween 6x6 2

Halloween 6x6 page, with fabric (dyed with colourwash). Useless photo I'm afraid!
