Roam Free ATC

My September Lottery ATC for one of my Yahoo group. The theme for this month was anything representing Africa.

Winter Fantasy

The card lottery theme on one of my groups this month is anything depicting house or home. I think this is the first piece of art I have created in almost two weeks.
The stamp is from PSX and I have had it for a very long time but only used it once or twice. Seems that applies to a lot of my stamps.

Altered Mirror

These are pictures of an altered chipboard mirror that I did at the end of August just before I went on vacation. I couldn't post it then as it was a swap with an online friend and I wanted her to be the first to see hers. I was going to be good and remember who's image I used but the mind fails me (must write things down). When I started this project I had the thought in my mind "Mirror Mirror on the Wall" which is what prompted the image in the mirror.
This was a fun project to do and I thank my friend for suggesting it.

Sweet N Sassy

ATC for the TGIF challenge this week at Altered Designs. The theme was Sassy and I think this little girl looks just that. The image used was from Lisa's Altered Art ( http://www.lisasalteredart.com/index.htm ). I've used stamps from www.InkaStamps.com , Stampourri and A Stamp In the Hand. The rub-ons are from Basic Grey - flourish corners, and they now have a clear stamp set just like them (just waiting for mine to arrive)

Javablu Award

My on-line friend Lynn of http://adreamseyeview.blogspot.com/ sent me this award for which I thank her. I'm glad my blog provides her with some inspiration. Now the way I understand this is I have to pass this award on to 5 other deserving people who I visit and who provide inspiration to me. Althought there are many who fit this criteria this is the 5 that I have chosen for now.
Stop by and have peek at some of their work. They all do such lovely stuff and they are all so different in their style but I love them all. Don't forget to visit the lovely lady that sent me this award, she does some awsome stuff herself. Hope I've got this right as it is a first try at this sort of thing.

More Bandana Technique

This is my interpretation of a sketch for one of my yahoo groups. The background was an experiment using the bandana technique but this time I heat embossed in red on black cardstock then used the white Inkssentials gel pen from Ranger to do the highlighting. The red embossing doesn't show up as well as I would like so it will be back to the drawing board for this one.

Was playing with the Bandana Technique today and made up some bookmarks. The quote in the centre is what I have put on the back of them. All stamps are Qietfire Designs (http://www.quietfiredesign.ca/) . The inks used for the base colour is Rangers Distress Inks which can also be bought from Quietfire Designs.
