Go Wild At FSC

Today is a very emotional time for Andrew and myself as we are saying farewell to Dot.  She will be leaving us in Melbourne and heading off to her home town in Portland.

Tomorrow sees us flying off to Singapore for 4 days on the last leg of our month long holiday.

Words cannot describe the incredible time we have had but over the coming months I will be blogging photos and hopefully albums/scrapbook pages of our amazing time with Dot and Australia.  

Thank you is not enough Dot but I am saying it anyway.  See you on our next skypeing session where we can really start reminiscing about our fabulous time together.

You are one very special lady.

Hopefully the next time we see each other will be in the UK!!!!

We are Going Wild for this month’s challenge at FSC,

Sandra picked the theme of Let’s Go Wild and wild is where I went.

These two remind me of some of the wild party scenes that I went to in my youth.

 FSC has a new sponsor … yay our very own Dot … how amazing is that?  She will be offering a different stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop

 Ink Art Designs is an Australian based Etsy shop owned and run by Dot Leathbridge.

A wide range of stamps are available which include a mixture of clear polymer and rubber.

The Etsy shop was originally started in order to offer a wider range of stamps to Australians.  It has since grown to include a world-wide audience.

FSC is also welcoming a fabulous Guest Designer who is showcasing an amazing tag for this month’s theme, her name is Elisa from 2crazycrafters.

I would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.


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.


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.



Visible Image Stamps

Bought some gorgeous new stamps at Ally Pally from a company called Visible Image.  I was a bit disappointed that they are acrylic stamps as I tend to go more for the rubber nowadays but having said that they stamp really well.


On this card I used the single horse, Fleur-de-lys and the script from the Revolution set with loads of inking.  Did the water stamping technique on the horse and also white embossed him as well.
