Is it Fall yet?

PSX leaves with an Northwoods sentiment.

Dollar bin sentiment from M's recent find. 

PSX leaves with Northwoods sentiment

SU doily heat embossed and cut out, the sentiment is also heat embossed on the vellum and that is attached to the doily panel with lots of mini brads. funny true story. mini brads must have die lot numbers hiding on the packages somewhere... ( rolling eyes here... those are all same brand same size gold brads... ) and there is two different colors. 

Colored some pumpkins saturday afternoon and sunday am. ( still sick ) but these went together pretty quick as they are on the simple side. 

an Serendipity Pumpkin Janice gifted me with. colored with copic's and the base has some moss distress ink on the sanded background the sentiment is also SU. this ones A-6 in real life. 

Pumpkin trio is an old dollar bin stamp and the pumpkins in the wheelbarrow are from Lockhart. 

DOTS pupkin row from before they were ctmh... colored with copic's the sentiment is from SU. this is probably not a true "scrapling" because, I dont know that size's measurements. this is the scrap that comes off an A-4 sheet when you cut it down to become an A-6 card... folded at the 5 1/2" center. so, it "fits" inside those Impress skinny envelopes. 

The skinny envelope was originally white. its been stained with old paper distress ink, then color dusted with some antique linen distress ink. then over stamped with ( second generation ) of the moss distress on the sanded background. ( both sides) tried to stay away from the lickable glue line. haha

funny thing, I had no idea this was a real stamp but, its something Alice says a lot so last time I was in M's all the stamps were half off and this was one they carried. colored the word blessing with an distress marker but, it faded into the design. 

so, took a gold gel pen and out lined the word blessing and it helped a little. this ones A-6 in real life. 


Sunny side up

thought this one looked like fluttering silk just before sundown tonight...

just messing around with an 100 macro

you can click on these photos to view them larger.

this one almost looks like a blanket flower ( it is a sunny though) the pure red's are mostly done now and what is left of them are along the fence line where the neighbor's alpaca's think they are quite tasty. lol 


dozen thanks and more

so tossed these together quickly for little thank-you notes for Alice. 

while I was messing around with the same stamps and inks made a couple on scraps of Kraft and then turned them into little notes for the stores. 

this one is 5" square in real life. Hero Arts Paisley, SU sentiment, versafine inks

these MFT's gals came to me as an RAK image ( years ago) so, I no longer remember who gifted it to me, colored it with copic's the sentiment's from Art Impressions and this one's A-6 in real life. was trying to make it look like the light would come from above but, really the wall behind and above the table looks  
"odd" the more I look at it so may tinker with this image some more later.

4 hours to play

Been coloring things with "daisy's" on them randomly and today worked on turning those into projects. this is an Daisy Apron from Lockhart that came to me via Wishrak from Bottomphish ( Thanks Debi!!) I ended up buying it after but, still have a stack to play with that she sent to me and so, then I found this printed paper pad from simple stories I found in the paper and such store last month and had to laugh the colors were just so close. the shimmer blue is DCWV. this is A-6 in real life. 

Hero Arts bloom stamped with distress markers and has some copper liquid pearls in the centers with an well scripted SU sentiment. the scrap had been stamped with an sanded background way back when. the shipping tag is also dyed with distress inks and the color of that seam binding is something like Jamoca? (something like that) 

There is both pink and stardust stickles in the center of the Daisy. 

an Gina K daisy bunch I won from some grab bag gift a while back for one of the challenges. (not sure on the set name) sentiments from SU. the daisy panel is up on pop dots, lace is vintage, paper under that is graphic 45. paper under that is unknown. the base is bazzill. this one is A-6 in real life. 

Janice rak'd me this pumpkin  a long long time ago (THANKS!!)... found it in my I wanna color this soon basket ( which is like 5" thick of images) haha. the sentiments from an dollar bin stamp that I did not ink the pumpkin with the words. this tag is 5 1/2" square in real life. 

This Hero Arts Daisy bunch is from the PIF threads. I no longer remember who gifted it to me ( sorry ) I did cut apart a second bunch to rotate and pop up the blooms. the lace is vintage. this is A-2 in real life. with an banana base. 

This one is 5" square in real life. the yellow string is wired and said it was "wonder string" ( it unravels) the PEO and Sister were done with an MM magnetic alphabet so very type writer all over the place 

SU froggies with Daisy's colored mostly with copic's and gel pens. the red is from some oh shoot. ( that pen that is supposed to be "the thing" for nature coloring ( Jan will know) it has a teeny tiny tip... but, it streaks. so anyways. 

This Daisy clump is actually a small stamp done repeatedly across the bottom with some yellow stickles in the centers. the sentiment's from Gina K. vintage pace, the pp is from DCWV, this is A-2 in real life. the other half of the barely banana

That same Hero Arts bloom done on a scrap and die cut, the ribbon is May Arts.

Just making a dent in the scrap pile ( ha! I wish ) 

PSX Daisy/sunflower? done on some kraft and colored with a white gel pen and copic's for the centers. this one is 5X7 in real life.


stolen play time

 This is 5" square in real life, the gerber daisy stamp was an wish rak exchange gift way back when from Pansy ( thanks so much!!) its stamped with versafine in black on the back side of a scrap of textured bazzill then colored partially with an white gel pen. Sentiments from Impression Obsession. lace is vintage.

done messing around trying for CAS ( I'm rolling my eyes here I know I nailed it, but its so flat) 
colored it pink out of spite. Sentiment's from SU. this one is 4 1/4" square in real life. 

funny true story had to clean off the file cabinet that I shoot on and found this... didn't find any photos of it so figured I never posted it... Outlines image this one is 3" square in real life. 

another wine tag. stem is colored with stardust gel pen. wine is copic marker. the stem it self is an rubber necker ( unmounted) stamp and it looks like i made it tipsy haha... such is life.
