I'm sticking with card making for the time being, as I don't want to get all my messy stuff out only to have to put it away again. I've also decided that all of my Christmas cards are going to be made this year.
The cards shown are the ones I made last weekend and this week. I will post this weekend's efforts another time.
The reindeer and the santa's sleigh scene were dones using layered stamping and distress inks - probably as messy as I'm going to be getting for now!
The Christmas tree card at the bottom was made using a wooden embellishment which I have decorated using Letraset metallic markers, Stickles and some stick on gems. I am loving using black on my cards at the moment!

I've got lots of new Christmas stamps, so there will be more to come!

However, I have a break from now (well, from the middle of August just gone really) until February, so I have been getting back into crafting a bit. Partly to ease myself in gently, and partly because I haven't done it for such a long time, I've been making some cards. These are two of my favourites, created using stamped images coloured with Promarkers. (I have missed my Promarkers SOOO much!)

These are for Cazro's Let's Stamp Swap on the DoCrafts forum. This month's theme is triple embossing for a glossy finish.
I visited the Lake District a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to call in at the factory shop for Derwent Pencils. I picked up a HUGE box of watercolour pencils half price, and there were some pastel pencils free with it as well. As you can imagine, I have been exsperimenting with them ever since.
To do these ATCs, I started off by inking and stamping the backgrounds, stamping the main images and then bleaching out the colour from the main images. I then coloured them using watercolour pencils and triple embossed them with three layers of UTEE.

I had a day off last Friday, so managed to make some encaustic art ATCs. These are the first ones I've done in a while, so I'm a bit rusty, but I think they turned out OK.
I'm off today as well, but not because I want to be!

Unfortunately the photos don't show up the shimmeriness (is that a word?)
I made the background using Starburst Sprays, with Papermania Vinyls as masks.
I then stamped the backgrounds in distress inks and the flowers in black archival ink. I also stamped the dragonflies directly onto the ATCs because I am lazy and didn't want to cut out the legs. (Well, I tried, but they kept falling off!)

I have some trees as well, so there will be more to come!

The idea is to draw a face with your eyes closed and then to make it into a character.
The images are drawn using Promarkers and black artist pen, with a bit of white gel pen.
The backgrounds were created using collage, inks, acrylic paints and pens.

I used printed text and music score, watercolours, tissue paper, acrylic paint, glitter gel pens and Precious Metal paint.
I used layered stamping, and I used wax crayon resist on the owl and the angels.
