Magpie Tutorial for Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
today I’ve got a tutorial to share over on the Rubber Dance blog.
It is a set of 3 ATC’s made using Distress Inks with different water effects which is what makes these inks so great to play with.

Rubber Dance have a new face book page called
Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge
where you will find an enthusiastic group of crafters
sharing the love of Rubber Dance stamps.

Our challenges are now going through the facebook group
with fantastic prizes at the end of each month.
All you need to do is join the page, create something with Rubber Dance stamps
(following each month’s theme)
and pop them into the monthly album.
Easy peasy!!!

Happy Stamping

Wild ATC’s

Theme Challenge At Rubber Dance

is now underway … and this time it is ANIMALS.  I hope that you have some time to come over and play.

 

I’ve decided to go wild and have used some animals from the ‘African Animals’ stamp set to make a group of 3 ATC’s.



There are 4 different wild animals in the set to use, with clever words that relate to each animal.

The animals have all been coloured with water-colour pencils and fussy cut.  The Merry Magpie set has been a favourite of mine, and I’ve used the extra bits for some stamping on these ATC’s.  The Textured Flowers set has a couple of leaves which look a little African, so they’ve been used also.

Please pop over to the Rubber Dance blog to see some more great inspiration and a great variety of animal projects used for this challenge.

A reminder that Rubber Dance will ship stamps for FREE, anywhere in the world on orders over 15 Euro!

Have fun stamping!!!

Good Things Come In Small Packages

“An ATC Swap”
This fortnight at FSC we would love to see what “little things” you can make.
Just so long as it has stamping on it it is elibible to win 
a wonderful prize from Marina’s Cottage.
I have made 3 ATC’s (my first ones)
and thought that a swap would be fun!!!
All you need to do to play… is to be a follower,
in the comments say that you would like to be in the swap…
and which one you would like to swap with.
I only have 3, so I will do a random draw for each one
for those playing…
(on the 21st of Sept)
And that’s it!
All three are totally different and each reflects a piece of me.
If there is a common thread then I guess it is the colour blue, they are summery…
and lots and lots of distressing.
“Bevy of Butterflies”
Just because I love butterflies…
it represents Spring, new life and abundance!
The style of this one is using distress inks, flicking water and creating a 3D effect.
“Bring On Summer”
This one is inspired by the sea, where I live…
it is simply summer to me.
The style is splodging into ink to give a watery feel and covering with a glimmer mist.
“Tranquility”
This one has and inked and dry embossed background that has been sanded and a light covering of blue added over the top for definition.
The pins are handmade.
The overall feeling is contentment and relaxation (really!)
The idea behind this is as a follow up to the ATC box that I made a few challenges ago.
It seemed like a good idea at the time but it has been sitting empty on my bench ever since!!!
 I think it would be fun to start dabbling in swaps so here I go…
Enjoy
I am entering this into the following challenges ~
