Stamping my own magic...

As in, I bought some of those Magic Stamp foam blocks to play with...
I'd seen them demonstrated on C&C and bought them while they were on offer(as I do most things)
Add a heat gun and some "bits" to get impressions from and in less than 10 minutes I have 6 fabulous(my opinion) organic background stamps...*tiny buttons are living things in my world*
 I used TH distress ink to test them, and found they release the ink really well, hence the very pale second print...
 tiny buttons....
 sprig of Rosemary...
 leaves from a Hazel tree...
 leaves from an Oak tree(bit tender still)...
 sprig of Leylandii (conifer)...
small gravel....

I can see me using these a lot for background designs....and the best bit?
You can just reheat and make a new stamp as many times as you like!!!
Feel free to steal and use these prints if you want to, you could probably change the colour and stuff in your graphics programmes, or just tear them up for collage work :D

A "Quothing" Raven

This months "Quoth the Raven" challenge was so worth the wait!
Design something with a Raven in it...
I started by making a few sketches to get a feel for this majestic bird...
 Then an idea started to hatch...
 and my Raven started to grow...
 Then he started to speak...
 and flap his wings restlessly.
Once his beady eyes opened he was off...
 searching for what who could tell?
 Or Who?...
 "AAaaahhhhh! There you are!!!"
"Now I'll be with you...... Evermore!"

Had great fun making this boisterous character...and what you can't see is the blue shimmer his feathers have :D
Now off to "create" for Monster Madness at the end of this month :D
