Love and Laugh

My hubby has started to call me Stig. I am just about collecting everything. Brought these padlocks from a car boot, they must have been in a garden shed for years, full of dirt, sand and spiders. Just wanted them. Well, gonna enter this into the Artistic Stamper challenge for May .words.

Painted the padlock, complete with its rusty key,with cream and gold acrylic paints. Added some flower wire round the key, then added random Tim Holtz Tattered Florals cut out in print paper, inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Made the dragon fly from another set of stamps, coloured and glossed. The words scattered with the flowers are from Indigo Blu stamp set Live.Laugh.Love.
Wanted the whole thing to feel as if they were all blowing in the wind,they move quite freely.

Tops and Tails

Made this card using an old stamp set that we have had for ages. Tops and Tails 2 from PaperArtsy. Inked all over with various Distress Inks, mixture of colours. Cut the dragonfly wings and used glossy accents and stuck on with silicone gel. Just added a few bits and pieces and layered up onto 2 colours of card.

Altered jar.

Hi to you all. Wanted to do something totally different as I get bored with cards, but have to make cards as I get lots of orders. I follow Alison Bomber also known as Butterfly and love her work. So wanted to enter a challenge where she is on the design team. So I am entering this altered jar  in the Eclectric Paperie Challenge. Altered glass bottles or jars.

This is an old Yankee Candle jar and I tend to hang onto them. Coated it with cream acrylic paint. Then just added different colours, got carried away with the acrylic paints and WOW I got paint all over my t shirt,all over my mat and my hands looked like I had gloves on......... Had some old glass outliner that was on its way out, but used this to do a random pattern on the jar, it scratched the paint off the jar but I love the effect. Added some roses that I just dabbed gold acrylic paint over. Added a tag and a brass key tied on with string. Hope you like this....
