Chalk Inks

I made this card recently for Zuzu's birthday. I hadn't had chance to craft since my shopping spree at the NEC so decided to play with my new chalk inks... I had never used them before but I am now addicted! They are great!

The Mona Lisa Stamp is by Cherry Pie Art Stamps, the flourishes by Purple Onion Designs and the rub-ons are K & Co.

The picture doesn't do it justice as I had to take the shot at night in artifical light - I go to work in the dark and get home in the dark - ah winter - aint it great! :)

The theme this week for Mixed Media Monday is Gold. This is an ATC I have made which is perfect for this theme. The background paper is by crafty individuals, with a K & Co rub ons topped with pearls - the corner charm was brass but I made it gold with rub and buff and then the finished piece was edged with gold rub and buff.


The theme this week for Arty Girlz is Squares.... I made these a couple of weeks ago for an art nouveau swap and seemed perfect for the theme - they are 4 x 4cm squares and the images are Klimt Ladies by Judi-kins (one of many purchases from the NEC hobbycraft show). The background papers have been spritzed with glimmer mist so are very sparkly :)

Wild West

The theme for Wednesday Stamper this week could not have been more perfect... Wild West... My mum loves all things Native American and she is in hospital at the moment. So instead of making her a get well soon card I made her this hanging. The papers and images are from Hot Off the Press and edged with a copper leafing pen. The hanging is from Stamp Diva - you can find them in my retail therapy section.

The feather background flourish is from Purple Onion Designs and the Native American Image is by Acey Deucy (again purchased from Stamp Diva). Throw in a couple of feathers and this is the end result.... Hope my mum likes it when I take it in to her tomorrow. :)
