Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Under the Sea or at the Beach.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.


  Judy is hosting today and our challenge is Under the Sea or at the Beach.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:


 
The background was done with Distress Oxide inks.
I love the way you are able to get both muted and vibrant colour with just one ink pad depending on the amount of water added before pulling the colour from the craft mat. When water is added direct to the coloured paper the ink reacts again giving lovely watermark effects which all work so well with this type of project.
If it's still too bright I like to apply a thin coat of Gesso, something I picked up from the lovely Brenda Brown which will tone the colour down.
The dies were Memory Box and Tim Holtz.
I finished it with clear gems to represent the bubbles.
 


I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Back to the Craft Barn with Woodware stamps - Beached.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's now live.

Been working with  Woodware Stamps and Distress Oxide inks. Here is a peek of how I used them and if you would like to see how I made this then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.

 
These stamps are so cute.
The Tim Holtz stencil worked perfectly with this.

 
Just need to find someone now to send it too.

I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
 
Look forward to seeing you at The Craft Barn.
 
Happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

Apart from the usual crafting I did go to a great Fish farm and thought you might like to see these beauties.

 
This fish farm has some of the best Koi around.
 
 
Sadly we lost one of our oldest fish this week but she was about 27 years old which is very good for a Golden Orf.
As much as it may not seem quite the same as the loss of some other pets it is still quite sad when you have had them from something not as big as your little finger.
Anyway less of that and back to the farm.
These are photographs of the ponds there.

 
They are gorgeous I'm sure you will agree.





Lots of nice plants and ornaments too.


 I've been picking damsons too and made them into a plum crumble.
However, someone took a big piece before I had chance to photograph it. It was scrummy and very fruity too.

 
We may well be having some more of this as we seem to have had so many plums and damsons this year.

Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 428 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!
I cannot tell a lie! it's a bit messy today as I'm in between projects again.

 
Rose asked last week about the tags that I have hanging around which are here. They are just sample pieces.
When I remember to do it, if I use a new technique I make a sample on one of the tags just as a reminder.
I've had them out today as I've been trying something out with the Oxides can't tell you yet but it is different, however if you have a look around the desk you might get a clue.
 
 
Just a few new arrivals this week.

 
Set 2. of the Distress Oxide refills and some new Jane Davenport Washi tapes.



So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard which I showed you last week:


 The lovely pen stamp was an old one by Inkadinkado.
 
 
Spellbinders mat and Tim Holtz text, ink blot and numbers.
 
I stamped the blots (Prima stamps) onto the black card blank before mounting the layers and used black split pins in the corners.


Quite pleased with the way this looks.

 I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's now live.

Been working with  Carabelle and Kaisercraft Stamps and stencils and here is a peek of how I used it. If you would like to see how I made this then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.

 
I had so much fun making this card with water colouring techniques using the Oxide inks for both the backgrounds and the ribbon.



 Tutorial for making this project is available now at The Craft Barn.

I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
 
Look forward to seeing you at The Craft Barn.
