On Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog this week, the theme was bookmarks. I made mine using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dusty Concord and Black Soot. The bird is one of my favourite stamps, so I just had to use it for this :)

Party Hat Tag

The theme this week on Sunday Stampers is: Party Party Party..In Your Hat. I spritzed inkabilites with some water and covered the tag in it. I distress inked the image and gave her a party hat made out of a book page. Then added a sticker and some fibres.

4 x 4 Friday

This was for the challenge of DaVinci Ladies on 4x4 Friday.
As you're not allowed to use Mona, I opted for Leda from my Joanna Sheen paper. I distress inked the background and stamped some images. Then added my pic and a K & Co sticker for the finishing touch.

Mail Slider

Was sorting through my stuff this morning and came across this mail slider that I bought months ago. Thought I'd try and alter it.
I alcohol inked the glass on one side and then stamped Tim Holtz 'Be Yourself' stamp on the other side of it using black stazon.
The cardboard is distress inked using various brown colours and then the clock image and other images stamped. To add a bit of interest I decided to use a frame over the clock.
Lastly I painted some Moonshadow Gold Dubloons Ink over the wings, clock and around the edge of the slider.

I'm A Laydeeee-Tag

My inspiration seems to have left me so I decided to take part in a challenge on Sunday Stampers blog to help me. The challenge this week was 'I'm A Laydeeee' and as I love tags I decided to combine the two.
I distress inked the tag using Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy, then spritzed with some water. I inked a stamped image given to me by a friend and chalked it to give a bit of colour.
Finally I added some ribbons.

Mountboard Squares

This is for a swap on LotsToDo. The criteria was to do 9 2"x2" squares using spring colours. I used distress inks and then stamped various images onto them.
