Challenge 62 OOTH

Well here we are at the end of the month and it my last guest appearance  for the wonderful ladies at Out of the Hat challenge.
The brief I was given was Jewel in the crown, what ever that means to you, my mind wandered to the TV series of the same name then the crown jewels and rubies but did you know that what was thought of be a ruby, is in fact a spinel !

So here's my offering of an ATC. I wonder what the other have done ? and where it will take you !

Challenge 30 at Artful Times

Sadly this is to be my last post for Artful Times as I have decided to take a break from the commitment of the challenge, but I shall still be about so please continue to support Neet at Artful Times

Now on with the challenge which for the next fortnight will be "Vintage" and I took inspiration from Brenda and Yvonne  as they make such wonderful layered cards

I started with an embossed and painted background then an inked paper doily, the Crafty Individual image has been stamped many times and decoupaged  all finished off with lace

Smile please for Out of the Hat

Yep Chrissie, Sandra and Janet, from OOTH would love to see how you would use a photo in your creation.
So here is my husband all dressed up ready for Goodwood's Festival of speed .
I change the photo to black and white but it had hints of blue in it the same as the weathered wood distress ink  that I used for the background with a few gears stamped.

Have fun :)

Mono printing

Those lovely ladies at OOTH have set a challenge of "Eyes"

I stamped my glasses and masked the lenses before inking and stamping the background, after removing the masks I stamped the eyes and drew a vision  future  in the other lenses .
