Created Byhand -Nature

The challenge this week for Created byhand is Nature. I decided to do a study with inchies. I used a backgound I had made with lots of inks and different papers. I photocopied it and then stamped my images. The borders are made with acetate tapes.

Ready, Steady...Stamp! Challenge FOUR

The challenge on Ready,Steady....Stamp involved using the letter A, brown,cream and white, a scalloped circle, canvas and rain drops. I made my raindrops using Glossy accents and it looks liked I scanned before it was dry. Oh well ,you get the idea. The stamps are Tim Holtz and the saying is by Longfellow.

Tag it On-Never too old

The challenge this week on DRAGONSDREAM Tag it on was to make a bookmark. The quote is from Quietfire Creations. I thought the crows feet fit well with the "old" idea.

Go Fish

The theme this week on Sunday Postcard Art is fish. I got very inky making the background. Lots of fun. It will come off ...  eventually.

I made this for the SMALL WORLD OF INCHIES & TWINCHIES challenge this week which is Alice in Wonderland. I started out with just inchies but it turned out to be a card front. I mostly used paper for this project.
