I have used the composite image from CCC128, coloured with markers,
 for this journal page:



I started by adding paint to my journal pages, adding crackling campfire Distress Oxide through stencils, adding stamps in Archival, adding more paint through stencils, adding ribbon and then splatters of white...


Next I added the image with crackling campfire Distress around the torn edges.
Finally I added some Posca pen in orange.

I have added 'Holly' to my card.
Yesterday I joined a crafty Zoom meeting with friends from the UK. Ina led us in a little workshop to make this card - it would be a brilliant design if you have some kids who want to play...


A 4in circle was divided up into sections and each part was covered with doodles, and then coloured. This was then added to a white card blank matted with a layer of embossed card.
A little black card was added for the top of the ornament, a scrap of ribbon and a bow.
Finally I added the sentiment, stamped on white and placed on green card.

I am just sharing a couple more pages of my Haunted Houses poem book.

This illustrates the poem Haunted Houses by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.


So far you have seen these pages:


Today I have these to share:






I have used Smeared Ink stamps  stamped directly onto the marbled backgrounds. On the left I added some more images stamped on a yellow paper and some Oddball skulls. I finished this page with a bit of penwork. On both pages the verses were trimmed and then had black soot Distress Ink around the edges. On the right hand side I added a Dyan Reaveley edge stamp and two more ghosts. 


I will add these pages to Leigh's Linky!

postcard from Vintage Image Craft


If you have visited my blog before, you may know that I like to make never ending cards.
I decided to make one for this post!

These two pictures show the first and last faces:



I have uses Dyan Reavely edge stamps, and cat stamps that were a magazine freebie. I used kraft card to make the base and matted this with papers from Crafterschoice Bohemia Botanica.
I added most of the cat stamps on top of small die cuts in Kraft and white card.

This is a little video of how it unfolds:



I will add this card to the Cat Lovers Hop

Color Dare Challenge #418

This is another make for the



Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme


I have used the top row plus black and white.
This started out as a white card blank matted with the black then a paper from Stampin Up.
I added the Dyan Reaveley image, flower  and edge stamps with a little added colour from markers. I then cut out the sentiment words and added them randomly down the side.


This is based on cards that I made during the September virtual retreat that I attended.



Hope you will join the Color Dare Challenge...

So let's celebrate Halloween!! And it is almost the witching hour!!
Do join in - with even just one post!


I am going to start by sharing a vintage postcard from Vintage Image Craft...


Yesterday I put my Halloween bunting up - you might remember it from previous years!


Today I started by doing an online Collage workshop with Peninsular Papercraft Boutique.
One of the techniques was to use juxtaposition of collage pieces.
I made this which I think is quite spooky.


~~~~~~~~~

Later on I made a Halloween wreath to go on the front door screen.


It is basically a polystyrene ring wrapped with Halloween fabric (cut into strips and pinned).



I then added ribbon and various embellishments (mainly old Halloween earrings!).





I will add this to Leigh's Linky!
