Anything Goes ~ Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #106

Hello everyone, 

It's anything goes over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog this 
fortnight so why not share your creativity with us HERE 
for a chance to win a Paperbabe stamps prize... 



Here's my Paperbabe Stamps #106 creation... 

Stamping out the Profile Right Dinky and tracing around the Volumptuous Waves hair template I've used gesso to blank out her ear creating an even flow of her hair.


Losing myself in a moment of colouring I protected the finished image with the Volumptuous waves hair template then placing a mylar stencil (created using the Tim Holtz Birch Die) over the top I blended distress ink through it.


The hair template acts as a mask protecting the image perfectly, bringing both pencilled figure and stencilled background together seamlessly.


A plain aperture found within an unused picture frame is dipped in puddles of Distress Oxides. Just look how those beads of colour leave their mark. 


A selection of Autumnal inspired D'oxs colours are used to stamp the leaves from the Completely Conkers set onto those transferred oxide puddles.



Positioning over the image the aperture creates a window around the design.


Back in it's original frame dabbed with gold and copper paint 
my Window to Autumn is complete.


Pop along and see what the Design Team have created this fortnight. 
I look forward to seeing your *Anything Goes* creations. 

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.
Take care & stay safe everyone.

WoywW 544

Hello everyone

It's mid week desk sharing day over at the Stamping ground.


At last my TH travel mixed media mat has arrived..! 
Great timing as the borrowed desk is now set up for Christmas. 
That Stag card was on my desk last year, finally got around to 
colouring it in 😏 The presents were stamped a few years ago 😐
Setting aside some Christmas stamps lets see how I progress next week.


Before I go I had to share this Halloween card I received last week. 
Created by the very talented Anne Redfern it sure did make me smile 
*Thank you Anne 😘


Taking Mom out for lunch this morning and a little 
Christmas shopping so i'll be round to visit asap. 

Take care everyone
Happy WoywW Hugs
