Snowy inspiration

As it has been snowing all day today I thought I would use that for my inspiration to make this ATC.

The image is from smeared ink and can be found here. The senti I have used on it is from a they might be giants song and I thought it was just perfect for the image :D

I coloured the image in with promarkers, then make the boarder and did the senti with a black distress marker then added the white paint for the boarder and the snow.

I have made a card using torn papers and smeared ink stamps. The stamp sets used are Quoth the Raven (top left), heart wings (top right), Chicks dig guns ( heart on bottom right) Urban Decay (barbed wire on the heart) and Inky Dreams (background splodges). If you haven't checked out the rubber club at smeared ink you really should, they are some of the best quaility stamps I have ever used and they really are so versitile.

Smudgy Antics Pocket challenge

We at Smudgy Antics challenge you to make a project with a pocket.  You can make a decorative envelope, a pocket card, or you can add a pocket to a canvas or a journal page.  If paper isn't your thing, feel free to go three dimensional and alter an object using a pocket or creating a pocket within the piece.  The more unique you can get, the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box!

I have made a card using the rubber stamps from December, I just love these grungy hearts.

I do hope you will come and join us in this challenge.

Dark Angel

This is a Piece I made before Christmas but just never got around to blogging it. It was made using some of the techniques I learned on Andy Skinners Timeworn course and was created from a bit of a missed up head  at the time.

I really enjoyed the process of making this piece I had never actually planned a piece of work before so to have this start off as sketches and ideas in a list to it being a finished piece on my shelf gave me a good feeling :)
