1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Deco Lady card on: November 09, 2011 03:20:09 AM
My most recent card was made for a competition - first time I've ever tried that Shocked  I won't know the outcome for a couple of months.  I was attempting to demonstrate stamping technique but the part I'm happiest with is the frame covered in mica fragments.  They're mixed colours - silvers, coppers & bronzes and give a very cool aged metallic/steampunky effect to things.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cute Lenore Halloween Coffin Card on: October 08, 2011 02:21:43 AM
I painted an image of Lenore from the comic of the same name by the awesome Roman Dirge & made a coffin shaped card.  I raided my hubby's Games Workshop model paints for this cause I don't actually have any paint of my own...  one of the purples came out a little motley but I'm really happy with how the design & colours work on the card.



In all her glory! Smiley

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Huge Victorian Rose Garden Card on: October 06, 2011 07:50:25 AM
I recently had the challenge of making a farewell card for a popular colleague who was retiring - it had to be huge!  I was reluctant to send the card all over town to be signed so I came up with the idea of mailing out individual pages and inserting them in the card later.  The card itself was 12inches square & featured my first attempts at making paper roses and sewing pages together.  



I made the roses, flourishes & lettering from Tim Holtz dies, & used papers mostly from Bo Bunny's Timeless collection.  I worked out the roses after watching several You Tube videos.  It doesn't show in the photo but I embossed the flowers behind the roses & highlighted the patterns with ink.  The timepiece in the centre of the winged flower is paper coated in a lot of gloss finish.



I wanted some interesting paper for people to write their messages on so I went with a pre-shaped paper from one of the Kaisercraft Christmas ranges (six sheets used for oodles of goodbye messages)



This shot of the centre shows the embroidery floss sewn through to hold the pages together.



and more messages on the last two pages



and one final shot which shows how big it is!  

Thanks for looking Smiley
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Owlington made for Toy Society Drop on: September 30, 2011 03:56:11 AM
Owlington Version no. 2 created for Toy Society Drop here in Brisbane earlier this year.   He was left in a park with 2 companions (a ninja & a dinosaur).  I never heard what became of them hopefully they found good homes! 


Owlington No.2 - I prefer the colour combo & eyes on this one.


Owlington No.2 waiting for someone to take him home & love him.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Retro Rocket Age Birthday Card on: September 30, 2011 03:40:45 AM
Another birthday card for a friend - a lovely little 39yr old boy!   For this one I experimented with shaker box technology  the larger star buttons get caught sometimes but overall its a cool play feature.  The papers were from October Afternoon's Rocket Age range.   Still plucking the cat hair out of this one after my beloved crafting companion Sheba nested in my project!   Smiley

Hello Everybody,
My first post....A birthday card made for a friend who shares my love of old movies, especially the silents.  Made with the awesome Graphic 45 Curtain Call papers, Tim Holtz Paper Rosettes die & other bits & bobs. The card was straight, my photo certainly isn't!  Smiley
