One Powerful Hour - Fantasy

I made my ATC using an Oasis goddess stamp - think she is called Persia, but not sure, I used Versamark ink and chalks, edged the ATC with green Chalk eyes, from the Peacock Queue, and finally added a red teardrop faux ruby on her forehead and coloured her headdress with gold ink. Why not visit One Powerful House and join in with this great challenge.

Theme Thursday - Hats or Crowns

I used part of a Stamps Happen stamp for my ATC, coloured with chalks and Marvy Le Plume pens and a bit of glitter.. Pop over to Theme Thursday to see all the gorgeous hat or crown creations.

TMTA - Cars

The theme over at Think Monday Think ATC is
Cars, so I used a cigarette card of a car, a sign from some gorgeous blog candy I won a while ago from my SBS Sister, Theresa, and a small stamped globe of the world.

SBS 24 Challenge - Birthday Card..

I made this pleated card for a friend's birthday - also made the box for it to sit in. The buitterflies are peel-offs stuck onto acetate and coloured with peel off pens, stamp is Hero Arts and I also used my Fiskars border punch.. Apart from the name tag which I stuck on the card, it could be used as a general card for any lady who likes a bit of lace.

One Powerful Hour - Black Background

I made this ATC for a private swap group I belong to, and thought it would be perfect for this challenge, since it took minutes to make. I stamped a white ATC background card with red accents, added the Googled image, coloured her hat with red felt tip and red glitter glue, added a red and white embellishment to the bottom of the ATC, and bingo - finished ..One Powerful Hour is the place to go to check out all the black backgrounds, some awesome pieces of art !!

TMTA - Eyes

This challenge is used quite often, and most people use beautiful women, or pretty little girls as their images. Since I stamp most of my challenges, I thought of a totally different take on this theme - hope you like it. The Rubber Stampede pear was inked with Verdigris and Pheasant Gold and edged with Burnt Copper from a ColorBox set, and the eyes were in my stash. Pop over to Think Monday Think ATC and check out all the gorgeous EYES.

Fabulous challenge today at SaWo pop over to see the gorgeous creations using this fabulous, easy technique, there is also a link on how to do the Fossil Stone backgrounds on their blog. I made two ATC's using Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks, and just a few embellishments. On the Chinese one, I used Peeled Paint and a touch of navy blue and just two stamped images because I loved the background. Enlarge them to see the detail.

You can double click on any of the pictures to see them in more detail..

I've been having a lovely time recently, painting. I have mixed gouache, H2o's and Marvy and Whispers pens, so lots of different painting and colouring mediums - I stamped the images first with Black Stazon and then set to with my colours - hope you like them!! All I have to do now, is add a greeting here and there, and voila !!
