Less is More - Single layer and Birds

Over on Less is More this week the challenge is single layer with birds, now I'm not sure this picture is very flattering to the card but it's the best I could get in the light I've got.

I spritzed the background with some Glitz Spritz that I've had for years, once it was where I wanted it to be I took a paintbrush and moved the liquid around to give it a dappled finish. I took a pen a went around the inner edge of the spritzed area to give an edge to it. 

The bird stamp is from Chocolate Baroque and is huge, I stamped it in Versafine and coloured the berries and tree edges with promarkers then stamped a sentiment on the bottom. It looks a bit squiffy but it's just the angle of the camera.

Rainbow Lady's challenge - Many faces of women

Good morning all, over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week we want you to think of the many faces of women, I have used a Kanban stamp for my main image and the swirls in the background are from a set I picked up at the Port Sunlight stamp show last year. I have coloured the backround with Distress inks and then used one of the Texture Fragment stamps from Chocolate Baroque to add to the detail.
I have left the main image uncoloured apart from the flowers in her hair which I painted with the same distress ink as the texture stamping.

I hopwe you can come over and join us, I know there are a lot of things that you can do with this challenge, see you there!

CD Sunday - Sea Life

The challenge over on CD Sunday this week is Sea Life so I decided to do a scrapbook page with some photo's I took when I was in Australia, I thought they had been doing nothing for enough years now so I need to make an album with them.

These two photo's were taken in the aquarium at Sydney, I was totally fascinated with the large fish because it looked like it was made out of stone, I used a digi kit that came on one of the cd's that came with the original Craft Artist programme I think it's called dunes.

I do hope you can come and join us this week and you like what the design team have done with the theme.
