More for my challenge

Over the last couple of days have been playing and experimenting with inks and stamps and various other stuff. Here are some of the things I have done.
The background stamp on this one is from the Tanda background set that I bought. The main image is from a Paperbag Studio set that I got at Wantage. The button on the sentiment is from the stash that Sue gave us at Wantage. Instead of a ribbon, I used raffia that I got recently when shopping for crafty stuff here.

This card uses a stamp I bought at the Craft Barn at Lingfield. I wanted to buy a whole set of these stamps but had to restrain myself. The background paper is from a roll of hand crafted paper I got from the Trade Aid shop. Punched the flowers from some scraps I bought at the Warehouse. Layered these with black then used glossy accents to attach the glass metallic beads in the centres of the flowers.

The ribbon is a white self-stick ribbon that I am trying to use up because it is so hard to get evenly attached to the card.

This is a tri-shutter ATC that I made - basically to try out the technique, but I may use it for a swap that is happening next month for the NZ Crafters on Card Making World. I used a PaperArtsy Eiffel Tower stamp, a ticket stamp, cogs and propeller stamps from my friend Zoe! Distressed with scattered straw, crushed olive and dusty concord distress inks.

6 new stamps used - total so far 11 - I think!!

You have been busy all 3 so different love them. That Tanda crackle stamp is so useful love it with the two girls and raffia topper. The red card with the wonderful CI stamp will make someones day and the atc is great love the colours you used here and the collage effect with the stamps. Big dent in your aim to use all your new stamps. xx Zoe

Beautiful work here your experiment with the atc...whoever gets it or the final version in your swap will be sooo lucky! Too true the Tanda Crackle stamp is a must have...I have several...CI...Judikins x 2 and none of them give a good all even background effect over a large area like the tanda one does! Good buy!

Zoe's stamps are looking good there too!
