Dog Sitting

At Stampotique Designers Challenge No 179 is Punny and / or Funny  so here is my tag, it features stamps Little Brother, Fiddle and Swirl Stalks on a painty splattered background.  This was inspired by my  husband  who, despite being in his 50s, he turns into a little boy again when he plays with our dogs.

Spring Flowers

As the temperatures still fail to get much above freezing and more snow is apparently on its way I wanted something bright and cheerful to lift the feeling of gloom.  This is a 6 x 12 inch box canvas, first layer was text paper, then various shades or golden paints followed by texture past through the Donna Downey Bloom Group stencil,  some more paint, a bit of alcohol ink pen and a light stamping of the droplets stamp by Ryn to add some texture.  As this was the first time I used the stencil I am entering this into the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge No 8 New to You, and, as it has a handmade flower the Artist Trading Post Exchange Challenge Flower Power.

Forever Dancer

I have stamped the image from a set of Art Journey stamps, I masked it and then sprinkled and spritzed Brushos, the text is also Art Journey.  I am entering this into the That's Crafty Challenge Tick Tock as the text makes reference to time.

New Year Resolutions

My tag has been made using canvas which I sprayed with inks through various stencils then cut to shape and sewed together with some wadding.  The main image "Leopard Queen"  is and the text is "Quiet Place both by Stampotique Originals which were stamped onto canvas and colored with inks and attached.  The birdy is frm Prima and the ribbon from stash. This represents my desire this year to be more contemplative and enjoy the quiet rather than the constant sound of music or voices. I am entering this for the Stampotique Designers Challenge No 177 New Years Resolutions.
