Door card by Titbelsoeur

Hello everybody !
Are you looking for ideas to participate in our monthly challenge ? Here is another easy-to-make card, I have done it the same way as the other, used the same inks and the same stamp plate, but not the same door stamp ! 
Here is the how-to : just ink your mat with your Distress ink pads, spray water and press your paper on it. Then ink some mini background stamps with the same inks, stamp it  here and there, and then stamp this awesome door with black archival ink. 


And here is your beautiful card with little colour !

here are the stamps I used :




Would you like to win these fabulous stamps ? Easy : just participate in our monthly challenge "Take a little color" for 3 chances to win !

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Butterfly Flutterby Card by Gemma

I have a 8x8 thank you card to share with you all today. A little bit of inspiration for this months challenge 'A little bit of colour', I have used a limited colour pallet and embraced my white space (a little). There is still time to join in the challenge this month for your chance to win. 


I cut a piece of card to fit my card blank and stamped one of the wonderful butterflies from the butterflies stamp plate in the upper right corner using a Candied Apple Distress Oxide pad. I then sprayed the ink with water and stood the card up so the ink would drip down the card. 


After drying the ink, I stamped randomly over the whole card with the same stamp and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide. After spraying the ink with water and allowing it to drip, I dabbed away some of the ink as I wanted these butterflies to be incomplete and the fade into the background. After drying I deciced to add very small amounts of yellow ink in places.


Using bits of scrap card my mask areas off I stamped the plaid background stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide over the top.


Once all my ink was dry I added some washi take and stamped the words thank you. I painted the letters with a white paint pen, which I outlined with a black pen. Then it was time to doodle on and around the butterfly with black and white pens.



Thanks for stopping by

A very wonderful place by Angie Coomber




For this month's project I decided to alter a piece of driftwood.

First off I painted some of the driftwood with white gesso to give me a base, but as I wanted the finished object to look slightly distressed I left some areas of the wood showing.




Next I adhered various found objects (broken jewellery, wooden decorations, beads, paper and fabric flowers) with a heavy glue medium and once set painted everything with whit gesso.




I then had a play with some green and gold paints until I had the result that I was looking for.



I added some turquoise beads and gold wax to enhance the paint effect.

I stamped a window from the Artistic Stamper Architecture set onto some card and coloured it in with watercolours.

Once dry, I glued the image to the piece of driftwood, added a quote sticker and a hanger made from rusty wire.
