He looks great!!! Love the shading you got when colouring him in, and the depth with the 3D!

I'm on a roll, here's a double page I put together this weekend:

I love your style, Toni. Here's the link to a blog I follow that I reckon you would like .. http://kraftitup.blogspot.com/ sorry, if you're anything like me you have enough blogs to follow as it is LOL

Here's another card I made today. Have the house to myself for the afternoon and it's a bit dreary outside so I'm doing crafty stuff. Really liked how this one came out.

Hey I love it!!! What's your background paper? It's really fun!

I love finding new blogs (and that one's a real treasure!!!) ... do you know 'the happy scrappy place' or 'the paintbrush goes spottie'? They're both Australian, and the girls do some fantastic stuff!!!

Off to google those sites now - what's a couple more to add to the list? wink

He's a bear with attitude, why not use and abuse him while you can, eh? Love your card, and that flourish!

That looks great, Toni! That background paper is perfect smile

Changed to the rabbit from the bear this week. I think I should have done a bit more to the panel he is on but anyway - it'll be right. smile

I'm really getting into spraying my backgrounds and using masks! They really allow you to personalise any background perfectly.

Love your card, and your little rabbit! His ears are ginormous!!! What's the paper collection? I really love all those cheery colours!

Thanks! The paper was Lime Twist. smile

WHen you spray the backgrounds do you make up the spray yourself or is it a bought product? Would be fun to cut out and make your own masks.

I use a mix of purpose-bought spray inks (glimmer mist, but I find the colour not intense enough), or the Adirondack color washes which are great, and some sprays which I have made up myself. For that I dilute regular india ink in water and add some perfect pearls if I want it to shimmer. I have also used the kids liquid water paints, diluted in water or some acrylic paint again diluted to a good consistency in water. This is the cheapest option and gives great coverage and colour, particularly for the primaries.

I have cut out lots of masks myself! The internet is a great resource for simple models and shapes (try: coloring+whatever). I cut them in bristol cardstock (very common school supply and dirt cheap! They don't last long, but they last long enough to use several times. The big advantage of making your own masks is that you can adjust the size to fit your project.

I do have some plastic masks which I bought, and I use them mainly for background, as a change from stamps.

Thanks for the heads up on the paper range. I have the stars and hot air balloon papers from Lime Twist, but hadn't seen the bingo numbers or that cool stripey paper, nor the kites.

Have fun getting your hands inky!!!

Here's a page I made tonight. The red motif in the background (right hand side) is sprayed with Glimmer mist using a shop-bought mask. I then flipped it over and used the 'negative' side for the little detail on the top left of the photo.



In this page the leafy fronds are a mask I made myself, and in this one the various blue and golden rectangles are primitive masks which I also made myself. It doesn't take much to get a great result.

Sorry I haven't posted in here for a while smile Christmas cards/crafts are well in hand. Mum also got herself a Hoagie Board, to help make impressive cards, which she is very pleased with.
My sister is celebrating her birthday next month, so here's a extra special card


(the "other side" with the insert is Here )

Here is the major project that we did on my parchment course, the photo doesn't do it justice, it is quite nice really. It is in three layers if you count the gates as one layer. The peacock is irridescent.
