Easter challenge..........

This week Ninna has chosen two tangle patterns for her challenge - cracked eggs and warped - both fit well with Easter. It looks like my scanner has cut off a little of the pattern - never mind you get the idea!

This card is made using a crafty individuals stamp coloured with distress inks, I decoupaged and glittered the balloon, the background is a scrunched up square of copy paper inked with the same colours., I think it looks better in reality than this photo, especially as I took the pic from an odd angle.
The tag is my take on one in the Creative Expressions project book, same colours I think but different stamps.

Zentangle challenge

I thought i'd enter Ninna's challenge to use the Escalator tangle pattern as instructed and use blue to add colour - Simple-  no it may look it but I found it really tough to draw and not so happy with it .

Man in black............

This Zentangle picture took 3 hours and I loved doing it, the centre image was stamped using a Tim Holtz stamp then the tangles worked around it - my favourite so far.

Artful Voyage..............

I was suddenly reminded that I had to make a birthday card for OH and what better stamps to use for a cruise addict than 'Artful Voyage' from Tim Holtz.
I am entering this into the Crafty Cardmakers challenge to make a Masculine card featuring  gadgets /technology so hope it fits.

Another crafting addiction...............

Zentangle - I have my box with pencils, pens and card tiles at the side of me, i bought the box especially to keep it all tidy, I've borrowed Barry's Zentangle books and I'm hooked, but the good thing is I can do it when i,m relaxing as that is what Zentangle is all about - a therapuetic art form - so they say - anyway here is one of my first - well one that's halfway good enough to share, I used a butterfly stencil for the outline and filled in with tangles.

I think I'm Back....................

With grateful thanks to Viv's OH who hopefully has sorted out the lack of pictures problem!!!! There's lots of catching up to do with pictures from  my workshops and a picture of the' shop folk' talking to Dyan Reavley and Kate Crane at the craft trade fair a few weeks ago.

I did a crafting with metal workshop two weeks ago and here are two of the cards the ladies made, they also covered a chipboard book but haven't a good pic of that.

I give up......................

Ok Blogger - I give up - I've been trying to post for days now and when I think I've loaded the pics they just aren't there - I think blogland has found out that I can work round their system and has stuck another wall up - not happy!!!! so I'm not on holiday or having a break from crafting or ignoring everyone - just really struggling to post - i'll keep trying but  - who knows!
