Domino Pendant

I made this after being inspired by my blogging buddy Jo who showed me one she had made at her last craft class.

It's simply a normal plastic domino that I super glued a bale onto. I then stamped a piece of card and glue it to the domino, gave it a coat of clear embossing power then finished it off with diamond glaze.

This pendant has gone to a much deserving blogging buddy Nicky, who hosts the best swaps over at UKS

A couple of challenges

This 'happy' card uses the digi image 'end of summer' from Mo Manning. I love this image!!! She fits me in with Mo's challenge this week which is paper piecing .

The sketch is from Mojo Monday. All the paper/card is from Stampin' Up, which is why it all co-ordinates LOL

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday :o)

Cant think of a catchy title!!

This card is for 2 challenges!! The sketch is from Winter Wonderland and the theme over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long is buttons and bows.

The background paper is from Dovecraft, as is the little tag that says 'frosty' at the top. The stamps are Elusive Images ones.

I also added a bit of ink around the edges to give them a bit of definition.

For those who have been asking here are some more pictures of the ducklings. As you can see they are now more 'duck' than 'ducklings' LOL They are now living down at the allotments as my garden pond was begging for mercy!!!!! And my goodness they are smelly little things!!

Compendium of Curiosities Week 7

This is the first time I've had time to join in with Linda's fab challenge blog.

This week we are up to page 55 of Sir Tim's Compendium of Curiosities. Again, I've used my beautiful mermaid stamp to make a sea inspired hanging.

Only a quick post because my dog Wilma is sat next to me on the sofa and she keeps trumping - eeeewww!!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday, im off into another room!! LOL

Ta daa!!

Yes, Im actually blogging something that I made!!! This is for July's art raffle for All Things Crafty (see link on side bar). This months theme is 'Seaside'. I've made a canvas using a fabulous mermaid stamp. I painted the canvas using adirondack dabbers, stamped the image on velum and glued it onto the canvas.

To hide the seams I've glued all manner of beach finds around the velum, shells, sea glass and a few pearl beads.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :o)
