Altered canvas

This altered canvas is my take on a project in the May Craft Stamper mag, which I have made for my sisters birthday.

Birthday Card

I seem to be in pink mode again - don't what comes over me sometimes....... anyway, made this card for my sisters' birthday, it looks better in the flesh so to speak!
The backgound has had a Brilliance ink pad lightly over it , then random stamped with Basic Grey swirls stamps. The butterflies were stamped on pink card then heat embossed in white. Added a few stones etc & some feathers & ribbon "tails".

Christening cards

Just finished some Christening Stationery , very repetitive but got there in the end! She was very specific about the design so I didn't have to think too hard about it!

Moulds n meltpots!

I have been playing with the pot again! The elephants & bird are made in playdoh moulds, I did do some others but they weren't a success!! The discs are just cut with a cookie cutter and the suares in an ice tray. I am trying to think of a way to turn the suare tiles into a bracelet but cant think how to put them together - any ideas very gratefully received!

As pyrography seems to be having a revival at the moment I thought I would put these on here. They were all done a couple of years ago. The design is drawn or traced then transferred to the wood then burnt in. The duck picture (which is my all time favourite!) has been highlighted with acrylic paint then lightly varnished. We have also done designs on egg cups and walking sticks (the latter hubby makes) no pics at the mo as the camera batteries need charging! Anyway , hope you like them.




the first piece is a pattern, (taken from a book of designs by Norma Gregory)the outline is traced then the pattern burnt in, shaded then the background painted in. The other picture is of some whistles which were hand made by my hubby then decorated with pyrography.
