ATC , Big Bite , eyelet , Grommets , Grungepaper , metallic ink , Rock Candy crackle paint , Stamping , Stazon , Tim Holtz Edit This 2 Comments »
Here is my attempt at distressed for the UK Stampers ATC swap. I have used grunge paper for the ATC colour the pieces with lots of different inks including metallic ones, is that ok for the distressed look? I used my big bite to make holes and attach grommets and eyelets. Some corners were clipped and rock candy crackle paint was splodged around, not dry when I took the photos but hopefully it will crack well. The stamps I used were mainly Tim Holtz ones.
Air brushing , Birthday Card , Copic Ciao Edit This 2 Comments »
Here are a couple of cards I made using my Copic Ciao pens and an airgrip. I am really pleased with the backgrounds which I created using the airbrush system. I was especially chuffed because I didn't think the air grip worked with the Ciao pens but it does! All that was needed was a bit of funky foam under the pen and air brushing is possible. The images are stamped and embossed before I coloured them using my Copic pens. Then I cut them out and mounted them on the background using sticky pads. The airbrushing is great fun and more backgrounds will be on their way!!!
Handmaiden , Knitting , mobius Edit This 3 Comments »
I have used some gorgeous Hand Maiden Lady Godiva yarn for this delicious scarf. I have used Cat Bhordi's magic cast on so the scarf is a true mobius with no grafting or joins. I love the way the mobius knits from the middle out and am planning another one already. I would like to create the next one with a lacy sticth pattern and knit stitches showing on one side, purl on the other. I love the way this scarf works and the yarn is so snuggly and soft.......I must find more of it!!!
