two for one post

Greetings,

 This is my entry to the current that's crafty challenge - Housey, housey. 
the card is made using lots of layers so, fingers crossed I can give it to one of my mad cat lady friends.

I also wanted to enter this challenge to make sure I said a BIG thank you to Laura who works at That's crafty and helped me get hold of the Tim Holtz crazy birds stamps. Laura  was swift in her replies and was very polite to a rubber stamp obsessive who kept emailing her demanding updates.



This my entry to this week's less is more challenge - use a stencil.
Yes I got to use the afore mentioned stamps and this is my entry to less is more using a dylusions stencil, pickled raspberry ink and a big circle cut out.

Sunset

Good day,

This is my card for the current Less is more challenge- sunset colors. The stamp is a Lynn Perrelli which I have inked with various shades of distress inks and then framed with an embossed arch.


I have decorated the inside, because it is a large card and filling up that much space with happy birthday was a bit intimidating!




















Best Wishes
Louise

Flight

 Greetings,

I love to use bits on my cards especially if they are free or from used objects. The embossed steampunkish background is made from a Diet coke can, which I cleaned and flattened and stuck on a bit of cardboard packaging which had be painted with gesso and sprayed.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Less is more - use metal
left of center- recycling
Artful times - anything goes, sadly the last challenge

Freedom



Greetings,

If you are in the UK then mentioning voting may induce yawns, however I was thinking about how many people are not able to vote either at all or without fear of reprisal, I thought about all those women who campaigned for the right to vote.
So here are my freedom themed pieces, I used the wonderful Visible image revolution stamps over sprayed backgrounds.


and finally no matter who it is for ...

This is my entry to the Sisterhood of Snark's challenge, quick, make a card in 10 minutes.
Lost coast Frida stamped on patterned paper which was torn out using a metal ruler and stuck on a kraft card, leaving dust trails it was so speedy.

Here are some Photos taken at Ickworth park this weekend.
