Butterfly Art Journal Page for Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
today I’ve got an art journal tutorial to share with you over on the Rubber Dance blog.
It is finger painting fun with lots of stamping with rubber stamps and Art Deco paint.

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

The Lion is a Very Hungry Beast …

Hi everyone,
I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world, it is struggling to pop out here.

Today I have an inspiration card for you that is for the July Challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps.
This month we ask you to either follow the colour part of the challenge which is Black & White plus another colour, or Use Wings/Feathers.

Here is my inspiration for you.

I’ve been thinking of having the elephant, from African Animals, walking through a forest of trees, then at the last minute I added the lion (from the same set) laying in wait for the elephant and added some words from the Take The Plunge stamp set.

I must have been in a mischievous frame of mind.

When you play along with the  Rubber Dance challenges you have a chance to win 12 Euro to spend any way you like at the Rubber Dance shop.
Have I tempted you to join in?  You don’t need to use Rubber Dance stamps to play along. As long as you follow either of the themes we are more than happy, and so will you be if you win 🙂

Happy Stamping

Use Your Inks!

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
July’s theme has been chosen by Shirley and she wants us to ‘Use Those Inks Anyway You Want’.
 FSC is one of the few stamping challenges around, which is quite special.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.

This journal page is a fun play with distress inks, oxides, stencils and stamps!
Pure fun all the way!!!

I teach Art Journaling in my region and this is one of the fun pages from one of my classes.

This is a close-up of one of the Dina Wakley Scribbly birds that I used on the page.

And this is the other little birdie.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking,

I have an easy-going newsletter that goes out whenever I have new stock on the way, or just in, with some occasional stamping tips and specials just for the people in the newsletter group.  There is a link on the right side-bar if you would like to join.

Happy Stamping!

Unicorn Beauty

It’s my turn to share a card that I’ve made for Visible Image.

When my son rang and said – mum, can you please make me one of your cards for Molly (gf) … oh, and it has to have a unicorn on it! I knew that it had to have this gorgeous unicorn from the ‘Believe In Unicorns’ set.

The star and the word ‘Love’ is from the new release ‘Peace Love and Hope’ stamp set.

I’ve highlighted around the unicorn and stars with a fine liner. And the extra stars are from the ‘Rock Out’ stamp set. I seem to be going through a star phase at the moment – there just seems to be so much you can do with them.
