Spotty week!!

Yes, we are seeing spots before our eyes over at Tando this week :-D  I have chosen to use a small ROUND FRAME for my piece and a Stampotique Mushroom stamp to go inside.



This little frame comes with its own stand but I have made it up to hang.  The base has been painted blue with a teensy dot stamping to finish.  The rim has been painted sand and some red has been stippled through the TANDO SEQUIN MASK.  The mushrooms have been stamped, coloured and cut out to go inside with some doodling and wording to finish off.

Thank you for looking today, many HUGS, Karen xxx

Dreams in Black and blue

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this time to show you my Black and Blue inspiration

 I used some stars from mini stars range and this delicious Sunburst  mask to make those circles around the stars and this is a totally Mixed Media stamped project with an additional die cutting for the sentiment.


And here are the products used for this project

Blue and Black card by Kaz

For my black and blue creation, I made a card:


I used the diamondey part of the ~{Sewer Mask}~ and randomly inked with two different shades of blue onto the card blank. Then I inked through the circle part 3 times and doodled around it.

I took 3 stars from the ~{Mini Stars}~ and a ~{Mini Arrow}~ and painted them with black acrylic paint, then used Glossy Accents on them. When they were finally dry, I dotted some blue paint onto them and attached them to the card.

I finished off with some stamping (details on my blog).

Black and Blue week

Hello its Karen here today.  BLACK and BLUE is an interesting combination of colours isn't it?  You can vary it so much by using lighter or darker tones.  I have gone with darker tones with a little 2inch square canvas to show you.  I have incorporated a little bird and branch from a grab bag...one of my favourite Tando products.


I have used Distress Inks throughout, even on the chipboard bird and branch.  It covers really well!  I couldn't do a Night without a Day to go with it.  You can find that one on my blog *HERE*.  Do pop by again tomorrow for some more Black and Blue, HUGS, Karen x

The Bird and Branches Brag Bag is full of these little chaps...
