Modes Of Transport At FSC

Not much been going on in my ‘Crafty Cranny’ simply because I have been MIA again (another short break to the UK).

That’s the holidays over for the time being, next break is AUSTRALIA.

FSC wants to see ‘Modes Of Transport’ for this month’s challenge which the lovely Dani picked as her theme.

It’s all about my stamp journal again, love the neat, crisp, clean look of these pages.  Getting to use loads of my stamps which have been gathering dust for tooooo long.  Only inks and stamps are used in this book … see first pages here.

For these pages I did a “before and after” starting with the horse then moving onto a motor vehicle before finishing with a van.

By the way the motor vehicle and the van set were both virgin stamps.  It’s OK, both wrists have been slapped, especially as I have had the PaperArtsy set for about five years and the car for two.

Reverse masked the horses then dappled with coloured spots.

Can you believe that the last time I used these Visible Image stamps was in April 2015 here just after I had bought them at Ally Pally.

Masked off the ‘AFTER’ and also the van then stamped over with a crackle stamp.

All stamps used for the journal pages, inks are a mixture of  Versafine and Memento.

 

 

Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

Brushos & Dot

Dot and I had another Skyping session and this time we used our Brushos.

These are a new addition to Dot’s crafting stash but I have had mine a while … holding up my hands in shame as I have not used them very much.

You can see one of my makes herehow sad is it that I made this a year ago and this was the last time I used the Brushos.

We experimented by using different cardstock with them and making  some very vibrant coloured backgrounds.  Can’t wait to see what Dot makes with her backgrounds.

Because of the time difference Dot scooted off to bed but I had time to turn my finished backgrounds into three different cards.

So Special from Katzelkraft is the main focal point on my first card – also used other stamps and a stencil.

For my second background I used only two colours and some very different stamps.  The ladies are from Hero Arts and the coffee from Stampendous.  The bubbles are a fave little background stamp of mine and I love adding little doodles in the centres.

Grunged the edges on the last card and used stamps from Dyan Reaveley called The Right Words also a Visible Image stamp.

Mr Bright Ideas

How cool does Mr Bright Ideas from darkroom door look,  cuts rather a dashing light don’t you think???

Used him on another Wallet Pop Out Card.  The panel at the front drops down to reveal a rather interesting inner.

Thought the quote from visible image went rather well.

Used a katzelkraft stamp for the inside called So Special.
