Lindsay Mason Designs Digital Images

Thought I'd share some recent makes using Lindsay Masons Downloadable Digital Images available on Etsy these all come from the DI's entitled Kookie Kreatures. Super characters (or should that be *Karacters*) to work with that can be dressed up or down..!!

Firstly two cards the Fox & the Kitty, useful for Birthdays, loved ones or just a general Hello.. The Fox was my interpretaion of an image I saw last year of a fox basking in the early morning summer sunshine, later to be joined by its mate, quiet a sight to see living in an Urban area and one I will never forget..
As for Kitty well I must admit if I was a kitty I'd be dreaming of that fish too..!!

Next two larger projects, intended as a Journal page but still undecided (i'm getting quite good at being indecisive recently..!!)

I must say I had great fun with both of these projects using a range of acrylic paints & alcohol markers. *I Love U* was adapted many times eventually coming to the conclusion that his or her paws were signing out *This Much*.. The project also uses Trees from Lindsay Mason Design stamps Keep on Smiling (PICSA6208) From Personal impressions and a wonderful quote from Lindsays' Creative Thoughts A5 Stamp set.
And Finally ..Just GOT TO HAVE IT..!!! The mouses surprised hand jester made me think he'd seen something mesmerizing.. Maybe it was the CHEESE ..?? 

All great images to play with and have lots of fun.. I hope you've enjoyed taking a peek..?? Crafty Hugs from Tracey xx

Home Sweet Home

Having Brain freeze working on a Wedding card for the past two weeks I needed a splash of colour in my life. Using Lindsay Mason's Sweet Dixie Stamp Range *Home Sweet Home* from personal Impressions (Product code SDCSA6040)

When I first purchased this stamp set I just knew I needed to create something Homely, Bold & Bright.

The set comprises of a delightful Home Sweet Home stamp and six quirky Houses one in particular has a rather astonished exterior... can you spot him??

I painted the background landscape using vivid Ranger Acrylic paint Dabber's then stamped onto the landscape planing where I wanted the houses to go, I then stamped the houses again onto card as these were to be coloured with alcohol markers, cut out and overlaid onto the painting. The pathways were drawn before the coloured houses were applied.

This project at present is temporarily stuck in my Art Journal as I'm not too sure whether to frame it but I thought I would share my Happy burst of colour with you anyway.
Thank you for reading my Crafty Chatter... Hugs from Tracey x
