Just Fun Wooden Door Hangers

Hello crafting again - I've had fun with these hangers
rather than just painting direct onto the wood I have
gone to town on these and covered them with
various papers. Used images that have been
stamped and coloured with promarkers.
I have also used my old Sizzix picket fence die
dusted with ink to create more of a scene.

The banner has been cut from scrap card and stamped
with alphabet peg stamps and the edges coloured to
blend in with the overall colour scheme.

Fabric flowers and Marianne dies used
on this hanger completes the look.
I am really chuffed with the finish.
Thanks for looking.

Square Vintage Transport Tile Coasters

Tile coasters made using stamps by
'Stamps Away Pilkington Transport - Set 1 & 2'.  
I'm sure you know the famous Ali Reeves who is
marvellous using masks, stamps and all types of ink,
mica's etc to make really unique creations, well
these are her stamps and they are brilliant to
work with. I have used these stamps in many ways
in the past and I am sure they will continue to get
used as I go to many vintage rallies showing our
own old iron and increasingly I am being asked
to show craft project for which people then seem
to want to buy?
I have struggled to get good stamps of vintage transport
and tractors but these do really hit the mark. 
All coasters have been painted in acrylic paints and
sealed.  They have all be backed with bais felt in
either navy blue or wine red.







Thank you for looking!

Circular Tile Coasters

Just started getting ready for a vintage show
whereby the country scene is very popular.
These tiles have all been painted with
acrylics and sealed to finish.  The back
have bais on dark blue or wine red.





If you like them please leave a comment.  Thank You

Fly to the moon

Hi I have used LOTV stamps on this card.
Coloured the image with watercolour pencils and then
die cut and embossed prior to stitching onto Kraft
die cut circle. The sentiment is also stamped onto
Kraft card and cut with a circle punch.
My mat and layered papers are Papermania
spots and strips range.
I had great fun using the sewing machine on this,
I am not great at sewing, but it does seem to
add something to this card. I even got out
an old Fiskars border punch to use on the
Kraft card, I really must be firing on all cylinders
at the moment.
Hope you like this?

Just for you

This card is made using Quintessential Country Garden
paper stash.  I have used a white 6 x 6 card blank
and mat and layered black card with the bird paper. 
The bird paper has been heat embossed depicting
the bird and flowers from the script background.
The sentiment is by LOTV on Kraft card with the
ribbon put through either side of it, to hold it in place.

Wooden Door Hangers

I have painted three wooden door hangers
which my father made, in white artiste acyclic paint.
I then stamped two images one either side of each door
hanger and coloured using water colour pencils. 
I think the shading on these two are finally
looking quite good.
The image above is what I used for the
side saying "I'm In"
