Good morning and happy Sunday. I'm over on the Rubber Dance blog today with my Simplicity Sunday piece. 

These new stamps that Melina has designed for Rubber Dance really crack me up. This set is called Fish Diet.
I hope that you can join me over on the blog where you will see lots more inspiration from my team mates. 
There's also lots of time for you to join in our monthly challenge.

Isn't this a fabulous mood board - I'll be back later in the month with my inspiration piece.

Under The Sea

Good afternoon and welcome to my second post of today. Lost Coast Designs have a brand new challenge starting, and it's a nice easy one - Anything Goes.

I started by stamping the Seahorse and the large Journaling Letter Guide onto some smooth card with Distress Oxides, and smudging whilst the ink was still wet. This works better with some colours than other but all the blues are fine. I used a mixture of colours on my stamp, which is really easy to do with a stamping platform.

 Next I blended some Tea Dye DO onto the page and splashed with water.

I added some more stamping with the text from Leonardo's Accessory Set, and some stencilling top and bottom. For the words I stencilled in Tea Dye, then 'bumped' it with some DIY filler 'cos I know that this absorbs some of the colour, and it dries really quickly.
To finish off I added some sequins (of course) and stamped the Carmen's Veranda Compass Square and the Eternity from Mystery, Eternity, Hope, Goddess onto some velum and stitched it into place. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I could add it to a card blank if I wanted.
I hope that you join in with our challenge, there is rubber up for grabs for a lucky winner.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Say Stamp Wednesday challenge, which is Make Your Own Background, and Simon Says Stamp Monday which is Wild Things.
Have a wonderful August, and thanks very much for looking x

Beside The Seaside, Beside The Sea

Good morning and happy Wednesday. It's a new month, so lots of new challenges will be starting, and Corrie has picked a fun one for Country View Crafts - she's chosen Sun, Sea, and Sand - a Summer or holiday themed project. Now in the UK Summer doesn't guarantee sun, but what an amazing year we've had so far, and I think there's still more to come!

A couple of months ago I went to a doodling class as it was something that I just couldn't do. I'll never be the worlds best doodler, but at least it doesn't terrify me now lol. I cut a huge black tag then doodled a border with my white pen.
Then I stamped my lovely lady, then stamped her again and embossed her costume in sparkly red embossing powder. This is how I look in my beach kit - oops my Pinocchio nose just hit the computer screen! Next I had to find her a head - these are Dylusion stamps lol.
When everything was finished I stuck it to the back of a chipboard tag - I'll show you the front later in the month!
I hope you join in with our fun challenge - remember you could win a voucher to spend in the store.
Have a lovely August, and thanks very much for looking x

I Came, I Saw, I Conga'd

Good morning and happy Tuesday. Here is another (and last you'll be happy to hear) of my Eileen Hull Passport journal pages.

I've not inked up Carmen Mooranda, so I thought it was time that I did.
I've also used my new favourite's Doodle Circles, and Antique Text Border. Carmen's Veranda's Flying Monkey also came to the party.
This may not be art daaaahling but it certainly was fun!
If you would like to join in with our current challenge just stamp something (but no humans allowed) and link up over on the Portal.
Have a fab week, and thanks very much for looking xx

Are We There Yet

Good afternoon and happy Friday. I'm very happy to be sharing my 'Nobody's Here' piece for Lost Coast Designs.

Yup it's another page in my mini book (this is the back cover) and I've used one of my favourite birds Bird Bones, and the fabulous and ever so useful Large Chickenwire Background. As always if you click here you will be whisked over to the Portal, and I'll show you how this came together.
