Days one and two

Here is the first day of Christmas: pears by Paper Artsy, bird by Wendie Rhodes embossed with Blonde Moments EP. Ink is Adirondak dye ink.

and here is the second day: another Wendie Rhodes bird, stamped on card with Adirondak Woodland and on acetate with Brilliance mineral. The background is inked with Adirondak dye inks and stamped with Prima clear stamps. I searched for small alphabet stamps and then remembered my Provocraft wheel - just the ticket!

Week 2

Here are my 2 turtle doves! Some stamping on this one, a feather stamp on the wings!

Week 1

Yes I know it's late but I have decided to join in this challenge in a slightly different way. I hope that's ok. No stamping (although some may sneak in on future pages!) but I am going to create my pieces all from fabric. So here is my Partridge in a Pear Tree...Details on my blog!

Sunday Challenge # 56

Ran a bit late with this one! Because we are keeping these tags, I didn't mind using the little embroidery which was the very first one my daughter did, and also the packet of old needles from my Grandfather's factory, circa 1900.

Sunday challenge #58 O for Orient

Here's my effort - I never seem to be able to get the gold foil to photograph properly though!

O for Orient (eering)

Well Ive been a bit cheeky here because I dont really like Oriental so Ive done Orient-eer instead!

Sunday challenge No.58 O for Oriental

and mine, inspiration from craft stamper mag July 09 cloisonne article by Carole Cann
(I have edited this to a better photo)

'O' for Oriental

I guess purists would quibble about whether this was a tag or not but as I'm keeping it I thought I'd like to do this a bit differently. The 'O' is the handle on the door which opens into a sort of oriental screen.
