AUGUST ATC SWAP

Hi there,

Here are the my ATCs I made for the August Swap over at CardMaking World.
The theme this month was SPORT and I got a bit carried away LoL



Images used:
Doodle Dragon - Dragon Surfer
                                   Volley Hippo
                                   Basketball Dragon 1 + 2
Meljen's -               Football Ted

I added glossy accents to some of the game balls, and silica coloured with inks for my sand. The volleyball net has a piece of gauze stuck on in place of the drawn net. I snipped the drawn lines off the image to leave a frame and then stuck the tiny piece of gauze behind.
Images coloured with Promarkers and the Surf Dragon has 'paper pieced' swim shorts.

Thanks for stopping by :-D xx

QUOTH THE RAVEN CHALLENGE #36...TIC,TAC,POE

Good morning Peeps,

I am posting here my creation for the new challenge over at QUOTH THE RAVEN, which this time is #36  TIC, TAC, POE.
Here is the grid;


I went for the Centre Horizontal line and made one of my altered ciggy boxes.



I used my Quoth The Raven rubber stamp set from SMEARED INK and my raven was printed 7 times and fussy cut, then layered with silicone to make him 3D. I've got The Master himself - Edgar Allan POE - looking resplendent on the inside.

I hope you will pop over and see what my Teamies have made for you to see and to join in with us as well. It's a fabulous grid, so why not come and play along :-D 

Thanks for stopping by.

QUOTH THE RAVEN CHALLENGE #35 - WEEK 3...ANYTHING POES

Hello Peeps,
Well, I am back from the UK and have also had my lovely Daughter and her family out last week - which was wonderful. Now I have to get back to normal ..boo hoo !!!

Anyways, I was totally so late for posting anything for QTR Challenge #35, so here I am with my piece. This month we are doing 'ANYTHING POES', so you can make what you like.
I have done another double page spread of my altered mobile phone instruction book.
I had used a die cut left-over as a mask at some point and I loved the effect that was left on it and decided to use it. I also got out my POE set of rubber stamps by SMEARED INK and a snippet of lace - et Voila !!



Products used:

Quoth The Raven rubber stamp set - Smeared Ink
Grunge background stamp "Graffiti Art 965A"  - Unity Stamp Company
Die cut left-overs from snippets box.

Well, I may have some more to post later as I had a couple of card commissions recently, but I'll probably post them tomorrow. :-D
Thanks for stopping by.


Challenges I am entering:

Crafter's Cafe Challenge #76 - Anything But A Card
Creative Moments Challenge #49 - Anything Goes/Animals
Scrappers Delights Challenge #29 - Anything Goes with Die Cuts
