I posted an ATC  a while ago which is very similar to this one but  then I deleted it from my blog for various reasons. This particular ATC I made for my friend Ann Flutterby Crafter we do a monthly swap.This one was made using Tim's glossy card and alcohol inks. I quite enjoyed making this as I haven't used alcohol inks for a long time Here is a link to Ann's blog where you will find some wonderful art work.http://flutterbycrafter.blogspot.com/

Here is my entry for the Stampotique Designers Challenge "Clean and Simple" chosen by the very talented Joanne Wardle. For my card I have used Stazon Timber Brown to stamp the images and quote. I stamped on to cream card and mounted it on to Kraft card. All the stamps used are by Stampotique.

I spent a lovely relaxing day at AFTH yesterday, it was our regulars Art Journaling with Dyan. There were only a few of us, just how I like it. Dyan as usual set us a challenge which was a new way of journaling ( I never know if "journaling" needs 2 lls or just one) on a tag, it was brilliant as it makes it very difficult to read. We used Distress Stains but I only used them on my tag not on the actual pages. The pages were done in our usual way with lots of layers using Dylusions paints and sprays. The image I used is a new one from Paper and Gluestix.

I made this card for my son's partner it is her birthday today, well actually I made 3 the same as it is a blogger friends birthday today and another friends on Sunday. I got the idea from Jo Capper-Sandon's blog she made a couple of mono cards and posted them on her blog when I saw them I really liked them.
I used a Crafters workshop stencil with stormy sky DI, the balloon stamp I used are from Paper Bag Studios as is the image of the little girl, I just love this stamp. The floral stamp is a Stampotique by Daniel Torrente

Out with May in with June

It is a lovely warm sunny day here in West Yorkshire and it is the first day of June, lets hope the rest of June is going to be like this.
May's art calendar pages are complete and June is already to go. Where does time go we are already into our 6th month of Kate's Art Calendar challenge, I would link this to the Kathryn Wheel but I am useless at that kind of thing but I am sure you all know about Kate's challenge by now.
