Artful Times challenge No 11

This is too late to enter into the challenge, as I have been too busy to blog anything since the last challenge. This Alice clock is made from the center of a roll of tape, which I covered with some blue Alice paper from a Somerset Studio magazine. I cut out two of Tim's clocks one of bronze card for the front and one from strong card for the back.  The back is covered with some coloured and stamped paper. I cut out a round window with a Tim cog die, and covered the back with acetate.

Inside there is a stamped and cut out image of Alice and the rabbit, and one of her falling down the tunnel towards the front. The whole of the front is then covered in acetate which has some foliage stamped on it with stazon. It doesn't show up very well on the picture. The clock is held up with the rabbit on one side and the lizard coming out of the chimney on the other. One day I might get around to hanging some charms off it.

Artful Times challenge No 10 Mona

Mona is the subject for this challenge, so I dusted off my stamps and made two tags. I didn't like the first one, so had another go. The backgrounds are distress stains and mica sprays, one stamped with perfect medium, and perfect pearls sprinkled on. I stamped images of Mona, and added lace and flowers.

Venice tag

I didn't have time to make a tag in time for the Artful Times challenge, but have made one anyway. I just love making tags. The background is a mix of distress stains and spray paints to give a bit of shine. The mask is shrink plastic with a gem at the top. The stamps are Oxford impressions.
