"Dans Ma Maison il y a....

.........du bleu."

My first time trying this blog challenge though I've been dying to have a go at this for ages.

This is my attempt for this week's theme of Blue. Take a look at this great challenge site if you haven't seen it already - Dans Ma Maison il y a....

Just for the hell of it!

I made two more ATCs this week. No challenge nor even a swap in mind really. Just felt moved to make these for the shear hell of it. I expect one day a theme will come along which they'll fit.
I've had the fabulous image of the tutu girl for ages, which I got from 'heyjupiter21' at Flikr. She is most definitely one of my all-time favourite vintage images to date.....I just love her! This ATC was inspired by the David Bowie song.

The other ATC is done with Glimmer Mists which makes it a real job to get an image that shows all the detail, since the glimmer rather takes over. There's some subtle background stamping going on that you really can't see on this scan at all.....just TOO darn subtle, I guess! lol

Anyway, as usual, please click on each photo to get more detail......

Think Monday, Think ATC: 'Purple'

Crikey - Monday again already!

Here is my effort for the theme of Purple which is this week's Think Monday, Think ATC challenge.

I've used bits of a painting by James Herbert McNair, called 'Y Sighlu'. The words are also his.

Think Monday, Think ATC and Wednesday Stamper: 'Angel/s'

Well, what a lovely way to begin doing blog challenges again after so long.....two challenges with the same theme of 'Angel/s' and one of my current favourite themes too!

I made two ATCs this time, quite different from each other for Think Monday, Think ATC.....

I adore this vintage lady image on the first one which I got from After Midnight at Flikr, the wings are stamps from Stampland and the words are computer generated from a font at Dafont. I used a Glimmer Screen and Glimmers mists for the background and edged it with Diamond Glaze.
One the second ATC the stamp of the pagan man is by Non Sequitur as is the tree background stamp you can just see a tiny bit of. I got the wings from 'T' at Flikr. This is also my entry to this week's Wednesday Stamper.
