Two pieces of Art

These are two pieces I made after treating myself to some new stamps. I love the black & white version with the gesso background but then felt it needed colour. So instead of messing this up I made a second one.

The colour version includes perfect pearls on the red section but unfortunately I had a slight accident & spilt water on it!!! So it has kind of lost the desired effect!
Still they are just test pieces really.

I made them & adhered them to piece of chipboard for strength. The plan is to turn them into wall hangings. Or they may just sit for a month on the shelf, knowing me!!!

Late Card

This is the card I made for Rachel (SSG) I took a picture & it isn't too good but it came out far better than I expected it to! I based it on a design by Rachel Jackson in the February issue of Craft Stamper. I loved the white space of the design.

As it uses only small pieces of art it is simple & quick to produce. I used a texture fade by Tim Holtz to create a small square of Woodgrain & the stamp is Innovative Stamp Creations. All the other bits were from my stash. I love Rachel's work.

Another Birthday Card

I apologise first for my terrible lack of blogging. I had great plans to do more but before I knew it January had come & gone!!!! I did make some art last week but not had a chance to take a decent photo of it.
This is a card made for a friend of mine, Pauline (SSG) who had a birthday at the end of Jan. I did make another for someone else, Rach (SSG) but just could not get a decent picture.

The background is made using Adirondack Dye inks which were on my craft mat & I just swooshed them onto glossy paper. I then stamped my all time favourite image. I never tire of this one!!
