Spooky Forest

Hi all 
Today's post is a new piece I have been working on today, I am rather chuffed with this one, for some reason the camera didn't pick up the colours on the background as well as I had hoped. But I did take another picture of it out of the frame.

This piece has been made using a collection stamps from Lavinia, Stencil from Inkylicious and Distress Inks by Tim Holtz.

Here we have Spooky Forest

The background has all been done using Distress Inks in the following colours: Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserve.

Here is a better more close up picture of the piece not in the frame. You can see the colours much better in this one.

I couldn't help but not do a Halloween piece and have you noticed there are bats on the picture YAAAAAY!!! 

I would like to enter this piece into the following challenges:
Fantasy Stampers - Halloween Fun
Crafty Cardmakers - Things That Go Bump In The Night
Make My Monday - I Put A Spell On You 
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes

Sometimes We Need A Little Magic

Hello all

Well it has been a while since I did a post a lot has been going on with my handmade business, family and other things which I don't want to bore you with. 

So what have I been doing?? Well not a great deal really which I am gutted about as I love getting messy with my inks etc. All being well this will now change and I can get on with being creative.

Today I am sharing with you my most recent make which features one of Visible Images stunning stamps, a Inkylicious Stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Inks. This piece has been done on some beautiful smooth white card and then mounted into a lovely frame.

Here we have it 

I absolutely love this stamp and the quote which comes with it, This was one of my purchases when Visible Image had the summer sale on, I couldn't not get it.

Never forgot "Sometimes We Need A Little Magic"
