ATSM Challenge 108

Hi Everybody, it’s time again for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #108 – Holiday. Well. this time of year for me that means only one thing – Christmas, but then again you might have other interpretations of Holiday and I would love to see them.

Rick St. Dennis is back again as our sponsor with his funky images, pop over to his shop here to see which 3 you would pick, if you were the winner.

For my DT project I worked with an image called Rainbow Angel, and here is what I made:

Rainbow Angel

I simply coloured the angel using alcohol markers and layered it on gold mirror card before attaching it to mu base card. A peel-off, something I only ever use around Christmas time, was just the perfect finish.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS – Gold

Inkspirational – use markers or pencils

Hope you enjoyed my piece of inspiration. Pop over to the Addicted to Stamps and More Blog to see the fab creations my teamies have come up with and, of course to join into the fun too.

Happy Crafting!!! ­čÖé

ATSM Challenge 96

Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. They were all very much appreciated.

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at┬áAddicted to Stamps and More┬á…┬á┬áChallenge #96 – Anything Goes!!!

It is your favourite theme, and I am looking forward to seeing lots of your fabulous creations! Please take the time to check out the full details of the challenges and their rules, which can be found here.

Rick St Dennis is our new sponsor this week! There are some fab images in his shop, you can check them out here.


… and given that there is so much choice of fab images in his shop, I pushed the boat out and made …

a canvas using his Gypsy Wagon image.

Well I must admit, the canvas happened by accident. Initially I had planned to make a card, but then disaster struck … I had coloured my image with Promarkers and messed up the background wanting to do too much I guess. This meant I needed to cut the wagon out. Luckily this canvas was already painted (since November last year LOL) using some of the famous PapertArtsy Chalk Acrylic Paints and gesso. I dug out some of my Lavinia Stamps and Versafine Inks and stamped the border and sentiment. Once my image was dry, I sprayed it with Crafter’s Companion’s Spray and Shine varnish for protection, I glued it into position, stamped a couple of more leaves around the wheels, edged the canvas with purple pigment ink and added my little glazed heart as a finishing touch … artwork complete.

Hope┬áthat you feel inspired┬áto maybe try something different, maybe pick up some unfinished project and to enter┬áthis week’s ‘Anything Goes’ challenge at ATSM,┬áplease pop over and see all the other creations of the fabulous ATSM DT Team.

┬á… look forward to seeing your creations … and
Happy Crafting!!!!
