November colour week

Hi, Novembers colour is up on the Tando Creative blog today..

aren't they lovely colours - I do like turquoise and orange…

So, here is ATC no 11:-

can you believe no 11 already?  The base is a Tando chipboard atc with decoArt fluid acrylics added…various doodling and stencilling was added over the top.  Three mini flowers and a flower with stem from the grab bag were painted black and then coated with glossy accents before being added to the base.

All items available from the Tando website.

October conjours up, hallowe'en, ghosts, bats, spiders, pumpkins, orange, purple, black, cold…winter… so this weeks theme of Spooky over on the Tando blog is more than apt…

Here is my spooky piece:-

The base is a large chipboard mixed media board which was painted using the decoart fluid acrylic paints.  I then used the "cobweb" mask and black paint once dry a touch of distress stickles was added… the bat was painted and coated with glossy accents.  The skull was painted and then overstepped with a crackle stamp and black ink…a coating of distress stickles were then added. 

All items are available from the Tando creative website.

Nathalie Kalbach and Andy Skinner

Hello, hasn't it turned cold all of a sudden, shouldn't moan really as we've had a lovely summer.

This week over on the Tando Creative blog they are featuring two very talented designers, Andy Skinner and Nathalie Kalbach…I couldn't decided which one to do, so decided to create two pieces:-

First up, Andy Skinner…. whenever I see anything of Andy Skinner the "rust" effect is always dominant so that had to be my base….my substrate was the mixed media board by Tando and then I added some DecoArt fluid acrylics and then using the new typeface stencil I used the bumped technique to create my background…

I then used the same paint and taking the industrial elements kit painted some elements and added to my base to create this:-

and, onto my Nathalie piece… once again I used a mixed media board and the acrylic paints, once dry I used the kaffee klatsch stamp set and embossed with aged gold frantage embossing powder…

I painted some tissue paper and once dry pieced together elements from the Fashion Dame stamp set…

This is my finished piece:-

October Colour Post

Hi, October already can you believe it? Halloween nearly upon us and then it will be the run up to Christmas! where has this year gone?

Today is the colour theme over on the Tando blog and here are Octobers colours:-

Gorgeous aren't they?

and here is ATC no 10…

I do start off with the same, or similar colours but everything ends up darker!! lol - so for my spooky ATC… I've added decoArt fluid acrylics and then stencilled over the top with black paint and cobweb 2 mask…. this was then outlined in white pen…some washi tape was added before adding my bat and painted mini pumpkins which have been over stamped using the Andy Skinner industrial stamp (Stampendous)… doodling finished it all off.
