Valentine bookmark

No reflections or shadows in this one, just good 'ole romance, when men where men, which is probably why I've put her on top!!
I have used my 'latest' toy my lovely cuttlebug for this one, the script embossing folder across the top on a slant, a lovely vintage stamp from Blue Moon in archivel sepia, a 'free' foam stamp for the setiment, edged in Tim Holtz brick distress ink, I filled the hearts with a gold glitter pen and outlined them in red.

Forum Calander

We have been set a year long challenge, 12 members to each make an A5 'landscape' calander page for each month, at the end of the year we will all recieve back a unique calander made from each members art work.
As you can see I've still got a thing about shadows and reflections. I have used Tanda fairy and bullrush stamps, a winter house stamp (can't remember the make) a blue blend pigment ink pad in 5 blues a brayer and sparkles although these don't show up.

Moonlight Shadow

As I haven't managed to post any new work since October I thought it was high time I updated my spot, I love playing with inks (& paints) and have recently developed a 'thing' about shadows and reflections.

This is a topper I made (October time ish) using the resist technique, very simple, torn paper for the 'hill's' and as a mask for the brayered sky, I used a twinkling H2o lid, clear ink & white embossing powder for the moon (I didn't want a solid circle), an Anna Griffin fir tree stamp, stamped right way up in Azure stayzon and in grey for the shadow.
