Rainbow Lady's Challenge #176 Spooks and Witches

This week over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog we are being sponsored by Caroline, who has put some gorgeous Christmas digi images up for grabs, so thinking caps on guys!
 This isn't what I had in mind for this challenge at all. I'd planned on buying the Witch, and the Cat stamp from Lavinia Stamps when I was at Port Sunlight, but alas I was distracted, and lost my train of thought!!!! LOL.  The stamps are Graphicus and coloured in with a mixture of Promarkers and distress inks, then mounted on to some HOTP backing papers which are yonks old. Hope you enjoy this weeks challenge, just click on the link on my sidebar to join in. Elizabeth xxx

TIO #102 Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Well here we go this week with round two of our films challenge here at Dragons Dream TIO. This week Helen has chosen the theme of "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" so lots of scope there folks! My first thoughts were of steampunk and that lovely era of man and machine, then for some unknown reason I came back down to earth thinking about Magnum PI, think it was the K and Co BP that triggered that one off lol. Aywayz, the ephemera is all from a HOTP book about travel, the BP is K&Co, the distress ink and the ticket stamp are Sir Tim, and last but not least the flower stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper last year (I think). O yes and a couple of leaves chopped out with a Crealies die. Please pop over and join in the challenge this week, just click on the link on my sidebar to get there! Love Elizabeth xxxx

TIO #101 The Good, The Bad and the Ugly!!!!

Over at Dragons Dream TIO for the next few weeks we are dreaming of Films. It's my turn to take to the screen first with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". I thought this one would give lots of scope for all sorts, Angels, Demons whatever you decifer the title to mean. My tag this week is made from TH cardstock with added stormy sky and black soot distress inks. The bad ugly guy at the bottom, along with the saying and ink rings are all by TH, and stamped out in black soot. I stamped out the TH wings for my little Angel (Moi) lol, in versamark and then heat embossed with Wow silver sparkle powder, then cut them out and added then to the tag. The flowers and leaves are all die cut using Crealies, inked around the edges and then shaped a little. The chubby little angel was born the year this film hit the big screen, lol, work that one out yourself!! Hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and pop on over to join in via the link on my sidebar. Please don't forget to include at least one real stamp on your tag.  Elizabeth xxx ummmm also entering this in to Hels Sunday Stamper as it has leaves on!

TIO#99 The Whole of the Moon!

This week over at DragonsDream TIO Lyn is heading up the team, with her song choice of "I saw the Whole of the Moon". I love that song and I have to confess that this tag is not what I had planned, it's just after the day I've had .............. I will say no more!!!! Maybe a Red Dragon would be more appropriate LOL.
Anywayz, I've used an Elusive Images stamp and coloured it in using pro markers. After letting dry out for a while I then added dusty concord and black soot distress inks around the edges to get rid of any white cardstock, may have to tweek this a little as I feel a dollop of glossy accents coming on LOL. Pop on over to join us this week via the link on my sidebar to share your creations!! Hugs Elizabeth xxxx
