The challenge last wednesday ay tellens place was choosen by me..... and its to use a black base for what ever you create.... the image i used is one of 'Tellens' and its a really cute goth girl.
I masked the digi image and stamped the background and inked it... i masked and stamped the image so that her clothes are patterned and her boots look as if they have a mesh over-lay.
I used a TANDA STAMPS skull and candle and finished it with a sentiment.
Please go and join in the fun.... look at what the rest of the dt did.... there are more 'goths' out there than i thought.
thanks for looking hugs lynx
I am really sorry i'm late with these this week.... i'll blame it on my twins having to many parties and events.... and not having 30hours in a day.

This weeks challenge at TELLENS PLACE is choosen by Tanisha.... and its paper piecing.... something i've done with real stamps but never before with a digi image.... after a lot of head scratching cos i'm so technically challenged that i cant even print images out ,that the images i have already printed (i have a friend who does my printing for me when she visits) i had to cut one up and trace it to use as a template.... anyhow... my card is very touchy -feely... green flock paper and pink and red velvet paper.... red bows with beads in the centre.... all very tactile as i made it with my old blind aunt in mind and she loves it when i make hersomething 'to feel'
Please go on over... the link is in my sidebar.... and join in the fun this week... Markus, (tellens place) talented artist has excelled himself this week with the 'freebie'.... his images are just wonderful and alterable too!!! You cant say that about many digi images.
Thanks for visiting.... now go and check out TELLENS PLACE!

Each of us has a digi image to give away from our TALENTED TERI, to give as a prize, and that image is what we've made our projects with.
The blog hop is about having fun and getting into the christmas spirit....( no not the gin bottle) my letter is 'A' so now you have that you need to hop on over to TRACEY for the next letter.
This is my 1st ever blog hop and its worried me sick, but AVRIL has been so helpful and understanding ..... I thank you from the bottom of this blackstone i call a heart!
HAPPY BIRTHAY AVRIL... no one could have a better friend.

TELLENS PLACE....challenge #3

Well its week 3 at Tellens place and the challenge is 'love, hearts, valentines.... but also you have to use pink and red'
Pink i ask you? Its bad enough for me doing a love theme, but pink!!!! The challenge was picked by my friend Lisa (boss of sophisticats challenge) and i'm sure shes just testing me.
I used a Tellens place digi image coloured with promarkers, the background is a t!m holtz stamp, the heart in the centre has been glazed then cracked.... i like that effect.... and yes i did do it deliberately... it wasnt accidental! I found some very tiny hearts and stamped them on his hat, and stamped and cut out another heart and placed it under his arm so it looks as if hes taking his dearest a box of choccies.
Of cause i used coipious amounts of ink on the edges and sponged over the image... and the sentiment is as romantic as i get.... 'YOU'RE AWESOME........ in small doses'... good hey?
Please come and join in with us.... there are 3, yep 3 FREE digi images on the blog for you... all very sassy lassies.... i'm sure you all can do better than me, so come along and have a go.
Thank you for visiting me... keep safe
hugs lynx


The challenge this week at TUESDAY TAGGERS is CAROLS.
I made yet another atc.... might put it away for lucy next year.
I used a stamp of pretty victorian children that look to me as if they are gonna break into song, masked it and then stamped with another stamp the words and holly background.
Its all coloured with ink and water colour pencils and i have triple embossed it to make it look like a tile.
Please come and join us this week.... i need more inspiration for my christmas cards still.
Thanks for taking time to look.
hugs lynx


The challenge this week at SOPHISTICATS is SNOWFLAKES and SPARKLE.... I know, not my thing really but as i'm on the DT i thought i'd better give it my best shot and this is what i came up with.
I used card from my stash and instead of my usual black ink i used white acrylic paint around the edges. I punched leaves from glitter card and used silk flowers, snow flakes punched from same card as the leaves and paper roses to make the 3 flowers... i added stickles... yes i did add sparkle... and some gems.... sta,ped merry christmas in blue in tne top right hand corner and just run the ink pad round the every edge.
I hope you can come and join us this week... as always there is a prize for the best entry and blinkies for top 3.... and the more of you who enter the more inspiration i get when i come and comment.... all the christmas cards i need to make i need INSPIRATION FAST!
