Penny Slider Fox

As soon as I saw this stamp set by Hobby Art, I just knew the little curled up fox needed to go on a penny slider card. It's just a shame it's taken me so long to get around to it!

I've also use the following Hobby Art stamps:
Falling Leaves
Ornate Owls
Sunny Day Greetings

So I'm entering it into the Hobby Art blog challenge which is All Creatures Great and Small

I just love how he rolls over as he slides along

It's absolutely ages since I've got my Tapestry stamps out and had a play so today they got an inking. We're using them in our craft group on Wednesday so I needed to make a few samples. This is just a quick on where I've masked the top and bottom of the card and stamped randomly with pink and lilac flowers and leaves before using purple for the little butterflies. Some of the pink ink is pearlescent ans some more glitz is added with some Stickles. The sentiment is by Hobby Art

I'm entering this into the Butterfly Challenge which is to use inks

Xanthine Butterflies

The first challenge of the New Year at The Butterfly Challenge is X is for Xanthine. I didn't know what it was either but Mrs A has given a great definition if you ppop over to the challenge blog but basically it's Yellow - who would have known!

This week in my craft class we're going to have a play with shrink plastic as none of the ladies have used it before so I've been having fun playing with it today. I've started with the Butterfly Fountain stamp by Honey Doo Crafts. Next I coloured some clear shrink plastic with yellow Promarker and stamped the butterflies (from the Stampin Up set Flight of The Butterfly) and punched them out before shrinking. Matted and layered (badly!) on yellow and black card. It wasn't until I took the picture that I realised how squiffy my layers are so I'm going to have to try and sort that when I get home on Tuesday
