The Altered Alice 'Hearts'

Another watercolour sketch this time for The Altered Alice Challenge which is 'Hearts'. I'm also going to make the sketch into a digi stamp, with or without the border.

Words of Wisdom

This is for the Gingersnap Creations Challenge which is 'Words of Wisdom'. I don't know why, but when I post a photo on here it's not as sharp as it should be! So, you can't really make out the words!!! It says 'You've got every right to a beautiful life'
It's clear enough on everywhere else! How annoying! If you click on the pic it comes up clearer!

Take a Word........Regal

This is a watercolour ATC of Marie Antoinette, eyeing up the beautiful feathers on the bird. I like to go back to painting every now and then. I've entered this for the Take a Word Challenge which is 'Regal'

Less is More

This is the sketch for the Less is More Challenge. I'm not a typical less is more person, but thought it would make a nice change to try this

I used Tim Holtz tissue tape,( this will last forever!) The butterfly image is edged in blue distress ink, the stamp is Paper Whimsy

Something a little Different

This is a little boat I've made. The base is card and then tissue papered and painted a soft pink. I added a banner around it and added this lovely vintage image of children, with added wings! The sail has script lettering and I added ribbon, and buttons to it
On Etsy now:

It ties in with Gingersnap Creations Challenge for adding ribbon to a project

Fairy Princess

I had an empty ribbon spool which I'd been hanging on you do!

I always make something as a little extra for my daughter's Birthday, I usually make her an album or the likes, so wanted something a bit different.

So here's her Fairy princess. Her name is on the banner along the pedestal. I'm really pleased with the way it came out, I added her crown after taking some of the pics

Alice and the White Rabbit

This is a quick watercolour sketch for The Altered Alice challenge 'Stripes' I haven't painted for a while now, so it made a change to get them back out.
I have Alice stamps but didn't feel inspired, so doodled instead.

Birthday card

This is a Birthday card for a friend's 50th, it ties in nicely with the challenge at Gingersnap Creations for soft yellow and white. The Birthday stamp is from Whimsy Stamps, along with the die for the banner. I decided not to put 50 on the it's mine in a few weeks!

Valentines Hat

Here's a Valentine hat I made for a challenge at The Flying Unicorn' for a project with banners and oversuffed embellishments. The hat has 2 banners, one with the word 'love' on scrabble type squares, the other die cut from patterned paper.

The fabric and paper flowers are hand made , and I made hat pins to match.

Busta kindly agreed to model the hat for me... :)
