Crafty Individuals on Hochanda

Crafty Individuals released some stunning new stamps by Maria Kitano today on Hochanda, including this exquisite Kingfisher.

The show also included some papers on special offer, which I used for some of the pages in this passport journal by Eileen Hull.

I stamped Baroque Splatter Script and Vintage Postcard onto tissue paper and tore this up to collage the inside cover of the journal with.

Glossy ATC papers are also included on special offer and I punched circles from them to collage with along with creating some ATCs tucked inside.

One of my favourite, favourite images to collage with is a postmark and Vintage Postcard features one which can be cut out, but today's show also included a free postmark stamp.

Lavinia Stamps Creative Challenge - Pink, Purple and Blue

I just love how challenges get me out of my comfort zone so it really is a privilege to be on the Lavinia Stamps design team where I am challenged monthly :)

Each month, Lavinia Stamps runs a Creative Challenge, with a different theme, and the chance to win £40 worth of their stamps.  The winner is chosen entirely at random using Python Random Generator, and you don't need a blog to enter, just click on the link here to find out what to do.

For this month's theme of 'Pink, Purple and Blue' I had a play with my gelli plate and alcohol inks after seeing Birgit Koopsen's video.   

I tapped purple and blue alcohol inks onto the gelli plate using a felt pad.  I love how you get the little dots of colour as it dries.  Once dry I brayered a thin layer of acrylic white paint to lift the ink off the gelli plate. The pink, for the challenge, came from the Distress Oxide 'Picked Raspberry'.

I used the same technique on some stickers.  I love making stickers!

I use my stickers in my diary
