Rosey Hearts Naughty and Nice

Good morning, I hope you like my redesigned blog.  I am here with another project to showcase the fabulous digi stamps available from RoseyHearts.  

This one is Naughty and Nice



For my project I have made my very first Art Journal Page.  I coloured a background with Acrylic paints and then did a bit of stamping.  The dragonflies are from IndigoBlu stamps and the bird a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp.  The tree is from Kanban Crafts and I stamped it with Versamark and embossed in silver then added two small deer from the same stamp set.  I coloured the image with Faber Castell pencils and fussy cut it out before adding to page.  I placed a small skull at the top of the tree.  The wording is computer generated and torn out then distressed with Vintage Photo ink.  The theme is giving the viewer an option, who is naughty or nice and will they bring good or bad luck?

The challenge theme over at RoseyHearts Challenge Blog is running until 14th April so please visit to see all the lovely projects from the DT and hopefully it will inspire you to take part.

Altered Notepad

Good afternoon, I would like to share my DT project for the Talula Girl Inspiration Team who showcase digi stamps of the Talularouge store on Zibbet.  I have altered a notepad using the digi stamp Steampunk Sallie.



The notepad has a navy blue vinyl cover so I added my pattern paper leaving a small border all round.  I used Chronology paper pad from Papermania.  I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and polychromos then fussy cut her out and adhered to black cardstock.  To embellish I added two strips of black with silver pearl bling then added the digi on foam pads.  Finally I made a bead dangle to hang down the side.
