Screen printing and Skipper


My latest projects using my 7x5 screen and my Screen Sensation system. The inks are from another company and they work well. The are a bit thinner in consistency but worked fine. 


For fans of Skipper, here she is playing with her Kick-a-roo in her box.  She loves her box and her Kick-a-roo. 

Have a great weekend.

Farm Fresh


This is such a sweet digital set by Beccy Muir. When  first say it , I thought how perfect it would be for cards for friends around here. I live surrounded by farms and farmers. 
This set is called 'Farm Fresh' and can be found in Beccy's Place web shop. You can find this and many other wonderful digital and clear stamps in her shop.  For more inspiration do check out Beccy's Place blog.

Printed the tractor image from the 'Farm fresh' digital set onto white card. It was then die cut and coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. The sentiment is also from the set. Stars were stamped around the image in silver ink and edges in brown ink.
The background was dry embossed and coloured with metallic wax. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Sweet Delights



This new 'Sweet Delight's digital set by Beccy Muir is just perfect for homedeco projects! You can find this wonderful set and many others on Beccy's Place web shop.  There are lots of inspiration for the rest of the DT on Beccy's Place blog.

When I say these images the first thing that came to mind were canvases. I had these two canvases which I thought would be perfect. First I used  two stencils and some structure pasted with some starlight paint added to it, to give the background some interest. Then embossed a black piece of card and added metallic paste to highlight the embossing. Next I printed both the images on two pieces of A4 card and coloured them with watercolours and then stencils around them with starlight paint. 
They look so much better in real life and now resides with my friend in Texas.

Entering this in Challenge Up Your Life :#71

New decorated bag



This is one of my latest projects. The bag was decorated using a screen print image in blue. Then I used a butterfly stencil with gold and blue Starlight textile paints.  Once the front and back were dried, it was ironed to set the ink. 
The screen and blue pearl ink was bought from Thermofax Screens. I love using my Screen Sensation but I wanted to try other designs and inks. This ink is a more fluid than the Screen Sensation inks but works fine. Not tried the ink on a Screen Sensation screen as yet. 

Have a great day.

Cats Meow set



I love this cat set of digital images 'The Cats Meow' from Beccy Muir. You can find the images for sale in Beccy's Place shop and more inspiration on Beccy's Place blog

The box was made fist created the background paper with Brusho crystals and then panels were added to the painted box. The cat image was printed and coloured with alcohol markers and pencils and added to the top. Really good box to put a bit of chocolate for a friend who had a rough day.

The card was another simple creation. The image was printed and coloured with pencils and then dry embossed. The background was also embossed with the same folder and some gold pasted added to it.  Love the expression on the cats face.

Cat's Meow set


It's time for the release of another wonderful set of stamps by Beccy Muir from Beccy's Place. Today I am highlighting her 'Cat's Meow' digital stamp set. As always you get the black and white images, sentiments and coloured images in the set. 

If you have read my blog, you will know that I love cats (and dogs) and  my ginger girl is a huge part of my life. Getting a set of adorable cat images to play with was just so much fun. My first project using the Cat's Meow digital stamp set is this 8" x 8" canvas. The first step was to add some texture with a stencil and texture paste. Once that was dry I used different colour of sprays to colour the background. After that I added more bling with starlight paints and stencils. The cat image was printed and coloured with pencils. To frame the cat I added stencil detail and raised dots using Enamel accents in white. Added various dies cuts and resin flowers to canvas to complete the project.
Really had fun getting messy with this canvas.

Do take a look at Beccy's Place blog to see what the other members for the DT have created for your inspiration.

Screen Sensation first projects




Have been watching the shows about the Screen Sensations kit and finally gave in and bought one. Got it out today and had a play. These are my first three attempts at screen printing. First one was done on the green 12x12 card and then the textured cotton bag and then white A4 card. The bags I intend to use at Christmas.

Really please with how well it printed and get it set-up for printing was very easy. The only drawback so far is the cleaning up. It can get messy getting  all that ink off the tools and screen. Ink does seem to go a long way. I have been using a small pot of the black I bought to try on my stencils. 
Will play some more soon.
