More NBUS…

Hello

As promised more NBUS

You can link up to Darnell’s challenge here

IT'S HERE!

 

For this card I used NBUS Distress Oxides (picked up from Paperific recently and SBB winnings) and NBUS Jane’s Doodles Dinomite and NBUS Mundra Purely Sentiments brushed.  I also stamped some grass and foliage. I coloured Jane’s images with alcohol markers and fussy cut before adding to my completed card front with foam tabs.

Cheers

I love badge

My card is a z fold card.  Rather addictive fold once you make one and very effective.

I die cut stars of various sizes from a shipping box and from some glittery cardstock.  I also punched some smaller stars and die cut the sentiment from SSS. I placed the stars in groups of 3 on the top edges of the card folds.

Hope to see your creation in the gallery.

Until next time

Cheers

Mehndi…

Hello

Popping in to share another card

This one I am linking up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here

I was lucky enough to win the Mehndi stamp set from Uniko.  It arrived the other day and I had to play! Coloured with SU markers.  Sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Birthday wishes.

Until next time

August Mood Board…

Hello

Today I am sharing my card for the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here

I’ve used Mama Elephant Just Hatched coloured with alcohol markers and popped up with foam onto my pattern paper.

Before I go I’ll share some cards someone asked me to make for them for

Kept these pretty simple. Sentiments from PTI and wood pieces are Kaisercraft (I think). Kraft and black cardstock.

Until next time

Cheers

A finished shirt quilt & a prize…

Hello

I finished the HST Sampler mens shirt fabric quilt a few days ago.  The sashing is 2″ stripes of new cotton fabric, backed with white pattern fabric. Binding Grey cotton.

Finished size 98 cm x 98 cm

a closer view

the back

I have been a very lucky girl.

Earlier in the week I received the package below from Jodie from vintage ric rac here.

Jodie’s latest range is rockpool.  Such lovely designs and colours in this range. It is not just for quilts either you can see what all the creative people made on Jodie’s blog.

I must admit I was a wee bit excited.  I have been the lucky recipient of a number of stamp sets but never fabric.  I was like a kid at Christmas opening my parcel.  Mind you I did this at swimming the other night so who knows what the people sitting around me thought!

 I don’t want to rush in so will ponder for a little while what I am to make.

I have used both Jodie and Emma’s (one of the patterns is Emma’s) fabrics on a number of quilts. Here are some pics.

Sorry to bore you with all the pics!

I have a few more new things to but I’ll share those another day. And tomorrow I am off to Paperific so no doubt I will pick up one or two new things there too.

Until next time

Cheers

Unstampabelles Collage Challenge…

 

Hello

Today I am sharing my creation for the Unstampabelles current challenge here

Collage, collage, collage… 


TWIST venture into multi- media

(multimedia means using two or more mediums together: so paint and texture paste or glue and paper or seed beads and paste/glue or ribbon, flowers and paint……)

Random Number Prize

Collage (from the Frenchcoller, “to glue”;[ is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippingsribbonspaint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.

The term collage was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

There are lots of examples on Pinterest if you want to waste a few hours!
Use the ‘collage in cards’ search for some simple examples

This one was out of my comfort zone. My creation is more on the side of multi media.  I think it still fits the collage brief.

I started by adding some colour to my texture paste.  This was added to a white mount and then a black mount and finally to my card front.  When the texture paste was dry I used the same spritz to add a few splashes of colour. I then added my die cuts, positioning until I was happy with the result.  The “DAD” is die cut from cork from the local craft store the tools are die cut in a bronze shiny paper from my stash along with a contrasting black cardstock.

I hope to see you in the challenge.

Cheers

Vicki
