More This and That

Hi you all, hope you have enjoyed your weekend. I have been busy, mostly doing nothing, and a bit of crafting in between. I have made 2 more mixed media postcards, using stamping, collage, and a bit of this and that.



The Ladies over at 'Out of Hat' issued an invitation to a Mad Hatter's party, and our task this week was to make a reply.  I distressed a piece of speciality stamping paper with gradient colours, and stamped over it with a background stamp from LaBlanche. The bird, hand and wheeled tea-pot stamps are from Catherine Moore; they have beem stamped in black and clear embossed. I coloured the bird-lady's dress with water colour pencils. The column/table is a stamp from LaBlanche. I added a chipboard frame - yes, it's upside down! - and gave the bird-lady a top-hat and a clock to get her ready for the party!



Have a good day, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  16. Really, really like the first two but the Character Constructions Mad Tea party have blown me away. I love CC stamps but never use them nearly enough these days.
    Love this post.
