SDC 167 Masculine

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is set by the lovely ~{Kim}~ and she'd like us to make a masculine card and we all have trouble with those:


I've got my favourite little guy out again ~{Smile}~ and gave him a washi tape moustache and ~{Mad Hatter's}~ hat.

The background is ~{Inverted}~ and he is stood on part of ~{Dotted Line}~. I've finished off with ~{Happy Birthday}~.

Tando-Creative - Autumn Colours

This week at ~{Tando}~ we're doing Autumn colours, so I made this card:


I've sprayed some card with ink through the ~{Stripes Mask}~ and added some ink splats then wrapped some fibre around it.

The ~{Pumpkin Minis}~ have been painted with acrylic paint and doodled on. I've stuck black card onto the back for effect and stuck them in place with silicone glue. I've finished off with some lettering.

Check out the rest of the teams projects this week as they have been beauties.

SDC 166 Get Your Spook On

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is set by ~{Carol}~ and she would like us to get our spook on a little early.


I've used a Gelli print and hand cut the scallop border. I stamped ~{French Journal Text}~ onto it, doodled a bit and stuck it onto card blank that had a few ink splats on. 

I then stamped ~{Skullboy}~, ~{Corie}~ and ~{Cooper}~ directly onto the card and added a bit of shading to them. I then added ~{Wicked}~, some bats from the Haunted House Mask. and some doodles.

SDC 165 Just One Stamp

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ has been set by ~{Sam}~ and she would like us to use just one stamp. 


I stamped ~{Stack of Birds}~ onto card and watercoloured them before cutting them out.

I stuck them onto a card base that I'd used ink and a mask on and a strip of washi tape.

I used letters instead of the ~{Bird day}~ stamp because that would have been 2 stamps and finished off with some doodling.

Tando September's Free For All

We're having another Free For All week at ~{Tando}~ and I knew I wanted to use part of the ~{Leaf and Swirl Pendant Design}~ I just didn't know how or what colours!


I had a good rummage through my beads and found this crackle, foiled glass disc and went from there.

I first went with the Paperartsy Crackle paint, but the crackles were too tiny so I gave the pendant another coat of Bora Bora paint and when this was dry, used PVA glue and black paint. This gave the effect I wanted. The best thing about Tando chipboard is that it coped perfectly with me smoothering it with loads of products! No warping or splitting at all.

Once that was dried I applied Glossy Accents all over including the sides - this had to be done in stages, but it's worth the effort as it gives it a lovely finish.

Here's a close-up of the crackle:



I've connected everything with gunmetal coloured findings and black waxed cord.

SDC 164 Animal or Bird

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is set by ~{Sue}~ and she would like us to use an animal or bird on our projects.


I've stamped ~{Tulip}~, one that I've not used for a while, and watercoloured it then cut it out. I've doodled on black card with my favourite Uni Posca pen and then stuck the image on with silicone glue. I've finished off with ~{Happy Birthday}~.

Tando Black and Purple

On ~{Tando-Creative}~ this week, we're having another colour combination and this time it's black and purple.



I've used the new ~{Letters Mask}~ and sprayed ink through it after masking the outer parts of the card blank. I splatted ink and watery black paint onto the card blank.

I painted one of the  ~{Scallop Nested Circles}~ black and when it was dry, covered it with Glossy Accents.

I stamped ~{Laura}~ onto card and watercoloured her, then stuck her in place under the frame. And finished off with ~{Happy Birthday}~.
