Chalk and cheese

 Another photo stamp found, I love this image, bought the stamp ages ago then forgot about it. What's new, anyhow thought I would have a go and don't think it turned out bad. Stamp smith stamp, again stamped with brilliance and coloured slightly with chalks
Below decoupage from a CD, fab images from Linda Ravenscroft, wish I could draw like that. Have made it for our Tracy for her birthday, I am pleased with the outcome but won't be making a lot of these as the first layer was a devil to cut out

Two books

 Above is my book I have made for this years deco swap, which I run on KC, I chose pink and brown Vintage. I surprised myself as I don't do a lot of Vintage, I am more likely to pick African or American Indians, anyhow will be a nice change. I have made another Japanese stab book I love these, got addicted when Susie Jefferson had a tutorial in Craft Stamper. Thanks Susie
This one above I made for Tracy for her friend, she wanted a brag book to give her to carry around with photo's of her baby. I didn't put too many embellishments on as if she is carrying it around in her bag they are going to get knocked off, anyhow I am pleased to say Tracy was pleased with it, just hope her friend is

 This is 3 different stamps, the figures are one and the branch another lastly the building, all from AAA in the USA. I did the background with distress inks and stamped with  black Visa-fine and clear embossed
 This poppy stamp is one of my favourite poppy stamps designed by Wendy Brown for Simply stamps, it is so easy to colour and always looks good, background again with distress inks and of coarse cut out with Spellbinders. I made the bow on one of those little gadgets with the two pieces of dowelling on and you tie the ribbon round it and low and behold it went through the 5m slot so only cost me the ordinary stamp
These are my ATC's for KC January swap, love this little fellow. One is stamped on the card and the other on acetate, stamp from the Artistic stamper

Jan and Feb KC challenge

 Above is my February KC challenge, each month Cath sets us a challenge and we make a card and upload to the group. This month you put felt tip on a acrylic block and spritz with water, I used perfect pearls spray to spritz. Then you turn your mount over and stamp it on the card. When dry you stamp with your choice of stamps. I used stamp camp bird stamp and Hero Arts word stamp
Above is my January challenge which was what winter means to you. Well snow is what I think of and we have plenty of it today. This is an About Art Accents stamp
