I used water based inks for the blue background in the selfie pic.

Kawaii Panda Bears

Time for another Inspiration Post for our Blog Challenge over at Oddball Stamps.
(Always Anything Goes with an Optional Theme - this month's being Feature a Creature.)



I have used Kawaii Panda Bears IMG316 again.





Oh My !!!!! How uber cute are these guys!

I actually didn't colour these guys at all, left them entirely black and white but used my Oxide Distress Inks, water spray and some stamps to create the some funky backgrounds.
Would you believe I spent more time on google looking for some great sayings to add to them!

I hope you like them - I think they make great Positive Affirmation ATC's.

VLS - Edgar Allan Poe


New Release time over at Vera Lane Studio.

I have used Edgar Allan Poe in my Planner to celebrate Edgar's Birthday ( on 19th).




Coloured with copic markers.
I added some washi tape and a strip of Caution tape left over from Halloween - works perfect for a horror/crime inspiration piece.

Here's an extract from poets.org if you're not sure who Edgar is:

"Poe’s work as an editor, a poet, and a critic had a profound impact on American and international literature.
His stories mark him as one of the originators of both horror and detective fiction.
Many anthologies credit him as the “architect” of the modern short story.
He was also one of the first critics to focus primarily on the effect of style and structure in a literary work; as such, he has been seen as a forerunner to the “art for art’s sake” movement."

I am entering them in the following Challenges:

VLS - Wings for things


Ready for some inspiration for your Vera Lane Studio images?

I have used one of the 4 wings from the set Wings for Things.


 and here's the back showing the magnets


I flipped the wing on the left so I had a Butterfly image and coloured with Blue copic markers.
I have added some Clear Wink of Stella onto the wings - doesn't it just sparkle!.
I then laminated and fussy cut, adding a thin strip on lamentation on the back to adhere my magnets.
Being my first time making this type of bookmark I had some choice words and sticky fingers along the way.....yes almost threw it in the bin! perseverance paid off and it looks great.

I am entering it in the following Challenges:
