Stamp Head Postcards

Another fab swap from UKScrappers and the talented Rebecca. This time it's stamp head postcards! Decorate 5 postcard size pieces and add bodies of some sort as long as they have a postage stamp as a head. Then finish it off with a quote/saying of some sort.

I mainly used Dina Wakley paints for my backgrounds and Finnabair stamps then added some washi tape and various bodies cut from magazines. Had lots of fun making these :)

Can't wait to see what everyone else has made!

Six Word Story ATCs

Another fabulous idea for a swap form the lovely Rebecca over on UKScrappers: Create 6 ATCs on the theme of a six word story. If you google it you will find loads. I happened to have a Stampotique stamp that I love which fit the criteria. I used Ranger's Mixed Media Cardstock which I painted and stamped, mainly using some new Finnabair stamps. Then I coloured the Stampotique's Clover in Promarkers and plonked it on and added some doodling around the edges

Looking forward to receiving my ATC book back

Twisted Sisters

I'm enjoying being part of the Twisted Sisters CJ on UKScrappers, I nearly didn't join but I'm really glad I did as it's FAB! We started by creating a full page and then creating a background. Then we sent our CJs onwards and the next person creates on your prepared background then makes another background for the next person. Confused? LOL

I received Jules gorgeous gorgeous journal with a beautiful green, pink and white background ready for me to work on. I happened to have about 6 quirky house images ready stamped and coloured in various pinks and greens - they matched really well. I also happened to be listening to the Pretty Reckless song House on a Hill - ok it's not a chirpy song by any means but I love it - so I based my page on it! Here it is:

I used Luminarte silks in Sunburst to paint the cog sun and the haunted house was cut on my silhouette. I wrote some of the lyrics along the sun rays in yellow pen.

I created the hills using neocolor wax pastels and wrote more lyrics along the tops in green pen.

The houses are a mix of Lavinia and Polka Doodles

The pink and black border is Suzi Blu - the circles are from my new favourite Finnabair stamp set, Don't Forget to Fly which I stamped onto my own scanned and printed backgrounds. I've had the two labels for ages and they matched the page... ooo House on a Hill just came on my spotify - :oD

Now to create a background for the next person to work on... I used paperartsy paints in Moonlight,  Mermaid and Nougat. 

I pasted a page from a Chinese book that Jules had included with the CJ and painted over it, then added some Kate Crane, JOFY, Finnabair and Stampin' Up! stamps and I finished with some strips of my own scanned and backgrounds.

I forgot to take a piccy of Jules' page but I added a dragonfly and some diamantes to her angel page :)

I've already got the next CJ from Twisted Sisters - can't wait!
