Saturday Stamper ~ Trees

Here's my entry for this weeks theme of trees ~ it's a 4x4 :-D

Gothic Arch no2 ~ Fall/Autumn

As most of you know... I wasn't very happy with my last arch for this theme, so last night I got the vivids out and did a new one... using the same image but I'm much happier with this one.

Vintage Nudes #2

for LindaB's yahoo group (Linda ~ apologies for keep saying its your yahoo group but I keep forgetting what the group's called... a secret society for altered art lovers (!) i think!)

Time to Stamp

Here are some pieces that I've made to send to Kristy at Time to Stamp
This blue gothic arch is my total fave out of the lot. I used versamark with the feather stamps on the background, the used chalked for that subtle blue/purple effect. Stamped the egg, seed heads and words with brown stazon and then collaged the little girl sitting on the egg. I'm calling it "waiting to hatch"

Here is my very first 4x4 ~ love the squareness of it(!) I've used cats eye chalk inks for the background and for the seedheads, and black stazon for the other stamped images.
Next is a selection of ATC's I've made using the plate....

I made two charms before for Kristy using the same birds plate from Time to Stamp ~ follow this link http://mandysmagicalworldofart.blogspot.com/2007/08/charms.html

ATC's for Swaps

Whilst at my friend Anne's last weekend, I did quite a few atc's off my swap list for various groups. All the backgrounds are made by my fair hand and they are all stamped ATC's. Now that I've done all these I'm going to concentrate on collaging work as that is my favourite medium to use.

Odd and Sods I made ~ tried out an Oriental Zetti but she doesnt work too well, am going to have to go back to the drawing board for that swap.Snowflakes are for a swap on LindaB's yahoo group. The other I just made for the hell of it.

Colours of fall

colours are very muted on the pic ~ they are brighter IRL but still subtle because I used Chalk inks for it.
