New Video, Challenge #86 Reminder and Cyber Sale time...

Hello lovely visitors...

Wanted to pop by today to let you know there is still plenty of time to join in with this fortnights Animal Themed Paperbabe Stamps challenge over HERE.

Delphine has created a scene using the Adorimals Digi Collection (also available as clear stamp set). She used the pre-created shapes of the different animals from the digital set and then stamped the face features, using the Kawaii Face Stamps Set. She then coloured everything in Copics and added a bit of Distress Ink on the edge of the sky and a few details in gel pen.


And I managed to put together a little video on this scruffy cat...

New Video Tutorial and Challenge #85 Reminder

Welcome everyone, today is the Day of the Dead celebrations and I have put together a video showing my Dia de los muertos Gato journal page come together, using my cat stamp and templates...

Hope you like them, I've had to divide them into two parts and speed up quite a bit... coming to realise I am a very slow crafter, no wonder my memory card fills up super quick which is why the end of the filming is missing, but I pretty much just gave the background a wash with the wonderful neocolor ii yummy sticks.






Now I just had to show you this stunning piece by our very talented Tracey...
She has put together a beautiful step by step for you too... please visit her HERE to be super inspired.

There is still plenty of time to join in with this fortnights Picture inspired Paperbabe Stamps challenge over HERE.

Enjoy a wonderfully creative weekend!
