Black Ice ATCs

Morning and with no printer been sorting out stamps and trying new techniques-this one is called black ice technique seen here on Purple Princess blog.I first used a larger stamp but didn't look right didn't use the versamarker lightly enough so decided to make three ATSs.I used the beautiful Bee stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

If you click on the pic you can see the ice effect.

Oxides and Hearts

Morning and we have a new challenge at Crafting With Friends sponsored by KJArting but unfortunately after playing up for a couple of weeks my printer has now died a death!!!So not wanting to miss out I have gone ATG.I swiped two colours of oxides down black card stock and edged with Cosmic shimmer gold polish,the heart die is from The Works and I had to cut another from darker card as the red glowed almost fluorescent when I took pics !!!I framed a piece of chalked card with my new die from Gummiapan.I added a wooden heart and as Valentine day has gone I tucked in a reduced 50% tag both from stash-I then thought the heart looked a little stark so added a little die-cut cameo been in stash for years goodness knows from where?All except the heart was added on pinflair glue gel for depth.
we have had grandaughters this week with it been half term so we had a baking after-noon-Holly made a cake from scratch(no cake mixes) all her own work and Ellie made chocolate chip cookies but didn't want a pic taken!-both absolutely delicious.

High Tea and Cupcakes Anyone?

Morning and hope everyone is well and now flu bug free-although I shared mine with hubby but according to him he's is worse--well it would be have heard man flu can be fatal!!!We have a new Just For Fun -ATG challenge at Create and Inspire.I used "High Tea" image from Just Inklined-coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents and glamour dust.

Actually I have a confession to make my mojo has gone for a short(hopefully) break also the printer has thrown a wobbler--luckily whilst searching through my box for a suitable image I found this one already pre-coloured???
Papers and cardstock are from my oddments box and to give my input I doodled round the image-fair took it out of me that lol.---Done!!!
