stampotique, humans with animal heads.

I really wanted to join in with this weeks stampotique challenge which is to use an animal head on a human... problem is I don't have any animal stamps!
graphic 45 and their raining cats and dogs collection to the rescue :)

I used two stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet and some of the borders. I stuck them to some kraft card before fussy cutting them out and popping them atop my two fav Daniel Torrent stamps.

Don't tell the cat but this little fella is my favourite ;)

I'm loving the stampotique challenges, they really inspire me to.get my thinking cap, or in this case animal head on.

Take care

seeing spots and going dotty

No I'm not off my meds!  This weeks stampotique challenge is polka dots and I saw the lovely Becca's DT piece for the Craft Girls challenge which is spots and or stripes so it seemed rude not to have a play ;)

 I used a Sheena stencil from her new collection, she has some really awesome talent.  A stampotique stamp... I am so NOT over my love of these! A Maya road chippie tree and paper from graphic 45 bohemian pad

The sentiment is a new stamplorations design, you must pop over for a look, their new collection is so usable, this is from the fond expressions set.

I am sharing this with the stampotique and crafty girls challenges.

Take care

Eclectic ellapu fussy mussie challenge

How can it be May already!!! The were so many awesome entries for last month, it was great to see so many of you taking a step outside you comfort zone and still coming up with the goods.

For me this month's challenge is also something I have never tried before, tussie mussie making.  A tussie mussie is a cone shaped holder for small posies or gifts, popular in Victorian time and often worn as a kind of broach... albeit a rather large one ;)

I decided to cover mine in flowers and pop choccies inside.

Where are the choccies you say.... they were very yummy!!

I used Tim Holtz tattered acorn die, an old rolled rose die and just did that thingy where you cut out a circle, then cut a spiral around and roll it up to make my flowers.

I may have gotten a little carried away with the flowers but they were so much bloomin fun to make and I couldn't bring myself to leave any out.

I used my butterfly palm punch, some pearls and got creative with some wire to make the handle, leaves and some more flowers.

I'll be honest and admit I groaned a little when I saw the challenge theme, I had no idea what a tussie mussie was.  I can totally admit to also having had a blast making it.  The girls over at Eclecticellapu have made some gorgeous pieces so do pop over for a look, even better if you join in the fun.

Take care
