Altered Book

Hi all, Kerry here, just popping on to show you an altered book I have just finished, sorry I haven't been around over the last few weeks I had a horrible deadline at work to complete, all done now so lots of craft to be done :-).  With this book, I cut into the middle, then ripped the pages leaving a whole to stamp the lovely La Blanche flower.  I stained some tissue paper and then stamped loads of random text stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Paperarsty, stampers anonymous and creative expressions.

and the back

Right I better be off, why don't you pop along to the Lisa's online shop and have a nosey at some gorgeous crafty stash.  I shall be back with some more creations, I have some ATC's to do tomorrow and I'm planning on using some more paperartsy that Lisa has in stock :-)  Thanks for visiting Kerry xxx

Monochromatic inspiration

Hello craft placers, the entries are looking fabulous, it's gonna be another difficult choice again for our current challenge, monochromatic. Don't forget there's a fabulous prize, sponsored by indigo blu for the winner.
I'm sharing a card made using one of my favourite stamps by Vilda, available online and in the shop. Along with many more delectable vilda stamps.
This is a great stamp for colouring with any medium and great for practising blending with the wide spaces within the image.
Hope you like my card, and look forward to seeing more entries into our challenge on that craft place challenge blog.
Luv dawn

Space Cadet

Hi all, Kerry here, just popping on to show you a boys card for our current challenge over on our challenge blog.  Now I have to admit, me and male cards don't go hand in hand lol and I really struggles this week.  The stamps are from woodware called space cadets and you can find them in the shop. I'm not sure the whole thing sits right but I love my moon, I used texture paste, coloured it with black paint, cut a circle and shopped off half and spread the coloured paste all over.  Then I had fun stamping bottle ends in it to give a crater expression.

For some reason I imagined a space rocket flying through space advertising!!!!  definitely different lol.  Our challenge finishes Saturday evening so why not enter before then and have a chance on winning a £10 Crafters Companion voucher.  Thanks for looking :-) Kezzy xxx
