It's a kind of magic

Good morning one and all..
I'm in good spirit .. I know I know don't fall over :-) 
Well I have a nice few days planned this week..  Going away with Mr O  up north to see family and friends and then I've got a 2 day retreat with Sheena Douglass and my fellow inkoids..  Can't wait! 
Anyhoooooo back to my work...
I've revisited Sheena's a little bit magic stamps and here are 2 new samples you may see on Friday on create and craft TV.. 

I've also used 'aging beautifully' on the background..
These are both coloured using the carnival set of H2o's..

I do love this hawk...
So hope you can join Sheena on Friday when she will be giving these sell out stamps another airing..

Paint fusion rose but not as we know it

Well I got out the paint fusion rose stamp from Sheena Douglass and made some paper roses... It makes large very English roses to medium size ones.. 
Coloured using H2o's.. 
I made a canvas  ( I actually painted over one of my first canvas I ever painted.. So if you ever have one that doesn't float ya boat.. Recycle it with something that does..) 

All the stamps I used are Sheena Douglass.. (Before I worked for her I bought everything Sheena anyways.. So being part of this amazing team is just a huge bonus) 
2 blog posts in one day... Holy blog posts! 
Laters ya all...

It's that time of year again...

I've been making valentines cards for orders..

Ive used a creative expression mbossabilities folder for the background..

I inked using festive berries and antique linen DI.. Then I went over it with stazon... I then splodged on some gold pourables ( it's actually cosmic shimmer mist that I poured onto my craft sheet as this gives a better more controlled coverage than misting)

I added a Wendy Vecchi heart some ribbon and some heartfelt creations flowers that I've made.. I also used a lace stamp from Ryn on my heart (hard to see in photo).. The foliage is from a Joanna sheen signature die.. And a bit of tim holtz distress glitter... 

There we have it.. Simples ..
