Soot Technique!!

This week at Theme Thursday the theme is ATC's. Here is my contribution:

For the background I have used the new Tim Holtz alchol inks brights applied in stripes and then used the soot technique. The stamps used are Stampotique and the splat and wording is unknown. The 'wierd' is embossed with gold and edge of atc accented with metallic gold paint.

The soot technique is fun and is a new one that I have just learnt, so will have to play a bit more with that one.

Thanks for looking, have a fabulous day.

Pink and Brown!!

The theme is pink and brown over at Theme Thursday this week and as my contribution I have made a vintage themed card.
I have used the new Kaiser papers Penny Royale for this along with Bazzill, some lace, Stampin Up's So Swirly and Short and Sweet stamps, Versamark Watermark pad, Stampin up punch Eyelet Border and pink cone ink. The image used was googled. I also used nestabilities Labels two.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.

Boyz Night Out!!

Here is my contribution to this weeks Red and Black theme at Theme Thursday. Hulk and Rocky are the latest addition to my Stampotique Stamps and have been busting to use them. Also I have recently done a workshop on shrinkys and thought that Hulk would be perfect shrunk. Sorry it hasn't scanned as well as I hoped.

I have used a credit card technique for the background, painted corrugated card for accents and foil tape and metal letters. On the shrinky I have used black texture paste and flesh treasure gold to accent.

Thanks for dropping by, I really appreciate your comments.

Torn Tendons //Broken Bones??

Omg! What can I say but disaster. We have just started our end of Term 2 school holidays and 1 day hadn't elapsed and my darling 16yo DS has damaged himself. He was out skateboarding with his mates on Saturday evening and fell heavily on his left foot causing torn tendons and possible breaks to top of his foot. (the complete outcome will be known next week when I take him for a CT scan). So today after having his foot partially plastered, poor love is devastated, feeling very sad and sorry for himself and of course he is sooo bored (lol). He will be in plaster for 2 weeks to start with and if it is broken it will be another 4 weeks in full plaster.
Consequently I haven't had time to do creative stuff, so hopefully tomorrow I will be able to complete my ATC with a red and black theme for this weeks Theme Thursday challenge and complete layouts for my LSS.
So where ever you may be keep safe and thanks for dropping by.
