Golden Shine

Hello.  Welcome.  It's the middle of the month and I have a little reminder for you for the Rubber Dance challenge.  I made an ATC featuring Merry Magpie and a few Textured Flowers. 


Since the Rubber Dance theme this month is Metal I decided to make my ATC base using a gold metal sheet.  


I glued a piece of the metal sheet onto a piece of chipboard and used a Sizzix ATC die to cut the shape.  Then I stamped around the edge with the small star cluster stamp from the Merry Magpie set and embossed with gold powder.  I smeared the edges of the ATC with Versamark ink and embossed again with gold powder.


I stamped the Magpie on book paper, embossed with black powder and fussy cut.  I added a little white gel pen to the eye and orange Promarker to the beak.  I stamped the small flower from the Textured Flower set directly onto the ATC and embossed with black powder, masked and stamped and embossed a few more.  Then I added some colour with lime green, purple and red Promarkers.  The Shiny! sentiment is from the Magpie set embossed in gold on black card.  


Thanks for dropping by.   The Rubber Dance challenge runs until the end of the month. You can use the colours and/or the theme.  Don't forget if you are shopping at Rubber Dance you can get free worldwide shipping with my code GTFreeShip when you spend over €15!  Hugz.

Growing In Unity - Day 4

Hello.  Welcome.  This week I am Growing in Unity.  Are you are having as much fun as me.  What a blast!!  I hope you are getting a few ideas for maybe different ways to use your stamps and supplies.   I am certainly enjoying using some of those stamps that haven't yet seen ink.  Today I am keeping it one layer, and quite clean and simple, and also using a lot of colour, mixed media and a lot of stamps!!  Let me know what you think, cos I will be drawing two names from everyone who leaves comments on my Growing in Unity posts and you will get a fabtastic Unity grab bag.  


I used stamps from Unity Twinkle, Stay Classy, Bee Happy Hexagons, and a tiny butterfly stamp that came in a grab bag.  I stamped and embossed the girl from Twinkle and masked her.  Then I stamped the heart with the love text and the sentiment with black archival.  I took the hexagon stamp with the wood texture and stamped it with pale blue chalk ink.  I unmasked the girl and stamped the tiny butterflies twice on her top and then coloured with distress ink and Promarkers.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment and I'll be back tomorrow with more Unity inspiration.  Also the Unity Stamp Company is celebrating it's 10th birthday and there is a massive sale!  Massive!!  Everything is on sale!!!  Hop over and check it out.  Hugz

Growing In Unity - Day 3

Hello.  Welcome.  This week I am Growing In Unity.  Leave a comment on all these posts this week for a chance to win one of two Unity Stamp grab bags that I will be giving away.  Today I have made a more masculine style card using stamps from Being Who You Are


I used kraft and blue card and Archival ink Potting Soil, gold embossing powder and a blue Promarker.  I stamped the clock image using the archival ink on the background layer.  Then I stamped, embossed and fussy cut it on blue card and added some colour with the Promarker.  I stamped the sentiment on kraft card and used a couple of mats to add interest and dimension.   I used a Creative Expressions die to cut the stitched layers.
