Some Artyness to share !

Its been a bit quiet on here of late i guess life just gets in the way! , apart from working on a few projects, you know me always dabbling in one thing or another, I have been busy creating some rather unique cards...... more will be revealed about these further down the track, but it has meant that I have once again got stuck into that paintbrush that keeps reawakening the arty monster in me ! lol

Here are a few shares..... more to be revealed about why I have done them a bit further down the line... :)

Teddy Edward

Its Cyber Crop over at Challenge Heaven again this month, and my Challenge for the Design Team is
Challenge 1:
Scrap 2 or more photos of an animal or make reference to an animal in your title, using Transparency, Stamping and a border punch.
So here is my DT example:

So I cut out a rectangle of transparency / acetate  and randomly stamped over it with Archival Ink (staz on can also be used, these permanant inks stop it from smudging and coming off) 
Then I used an EK Success border punch on the edge of the page to mimick notepad paper.
I gave the edges a distress and then added Charcoal Black Distress ink,  the blue splodges are China Blue Distress Ink, with a light squirt of Denim Blue Glimmer mist followed by Peacock Blue Glimmer Chalk. Then a light spray with Graphite Black Glimmermist. 
The Key and Lock are cut from Tim Holtz Alterations Hardware die set   (for use in cuttlebug/ big shot/ vagabond) 
More ingredients: Twiddleybitz chippie wings, RW Laser Cuts mini Ebony Swirl. Tim Holtz tissue tape, Kraft Resist paper, Jenny Bowlin Studio Chipboard buttons, Tickets unknown, Alphabet chipboard letters Memory Maze. 
TFL  hope there is some inspiration here for you :)
