Even more stuff

Well, I have been busy crafting again and made even more stuff :) I did another altered puzzle piece in red, black and gold which I really like, you can see the sparkly effect better in real life!

I've also make a couple of cards using some lovely new rubber stamps I bought recently. The first one is a Serendipity stamp from Joanna Sheens website and the second card uses a Stampin Up one from the Summer by the Sea collection which came from the Time for Crafting website. I coloured them both in with watercolour pencils and a waterbrush.

Some more stuff at last !

Well, I'm sure you will be pleased to know that I have not dropped off the face of the earth, just had so many things to fit in recently (including a bad back) that I have got behind with my crafting. Here are a few things I have made recently. I really love doing the puzzle pieces, they are such fun and I have really enjoyed experimenting with different techniques too. These pieces are quite large, about 4" x 4" so plenty of room, I have got some much smaller ones to do which will be a lot more challenging I think. I've got an altered book in the pipeline too but that is a long term project which I have only just begun!

The Cute Cat atc was made for the swap on the Time for Crafting forum which I host but was discarded because I made some other ones which I liked better. I still like this one though, it's such a cute kitten image.

These are the three atc's I used for the swap. I was really pleased with them and particularly like the vellum pockets. The vellum I used is covered in loads of sparkly dots but unfortunatly they dont show up in the photo. The stamp used is one from Paper Artsy which I think goes really well on atc's as it is just the right size.
