In the round

I've been away for the weekend visting a crafting friend in Wales ( yes it rained lol ) so thought I would combine a thank you card with the Lots To Do challenge shapes.

All the circles and the easle cards have been cut using spellbinder the stamp is from Inkadinkado and the words cut on the silhouette. All finished off with a touch of distress inks

A stitching Challenge

This is a piece of cotton I painted years ago so I've turned it into an ATC with some mesh, beads and embroidery then I stamped the word Flora.
I'm using this for a summer ATC swap and the lots to do challenge
If you look at my last post you will see the Trapeze card I started while at Zoe's

Trapeze card

Oh look what Zoe had me doing now it's finished I do like it and might have to have another go lol I've coloured the center with a promarker and added faux stitching with an inkssential pen covered the holes with a peel off so you can't see my mistakes tehe and used colorbox chalk inks for the flowers. topped off with one of my hand made chipboard flower:)

ATC's for the stampman Swap

The theme is wings, sorry the colours don't show to well in the photo.
The Fairy is a wood mounted stamp but has no make on it and the flourishes are inkadinkado and the ink Kaleidacolor autumn leaves.
The bird cage ( creative expressions )is the shabby chic technique I've used lake mist and willow dabbers with some flowers cut with my silhouette and inked with Victorian Velvet.
Thought it would be nice to use a stampman stamp for the last one, a bit of a cross between shabby chic and Jacobs coat technique . I have really enjoyed making these :)
