A Postcard - Nursery Rhymes

I am hosting Sunday Postcard Art this week and I chose the theme  of Nursery Rhymes.
My postcard is a combination of collage, stamping and paint and I have chosen the Nursery Rhyme Lavender Blue.
I used only things I already had on my desk, the pile that had got shoved in the corner and left over from other projects. 
The only exception was the actual Rhyme itself that I bashed out on my old Typewriter from when I was at school that I found a while ago in my Dad's loft when I was clearing the house after he Died. I was very glad to find it as I remember the Christmas that it was a gift from my parents and it's nice to have that memory every time I use it.

You can enter the challenge HERE

Box of Eggs for PaperArtsy

I am very pleased to be on the PaperArtsy Blog tonight with a post for their "Box of Eggs" challenge. 
It's a colour challenge and I have used some of the latest paint releases for my egg colours, along with one of the new Hot Pick stamp releases. I do love the weather vane image on this set, in fact the whole set is so usable for backgrounds and you can as I have here make elements of the images pop off the background a little bit by highlighting them with colour in places.

To see my whole post and full details of the items I used please do pop on over to the PA blog.

PaperArtsy Christmas Decoration

Getting down to finishing off a few older projects today.
I started this last year about this time, then life got a bit rock and roll and I never got it finished.

 I do love this Reindeer image, he looks so majestic.

It's using one of last christmas released by Scrapcosy for PaperArtsy, Stamped onto glass, coloured and then backed with another piece off glass and then sealed using UTEE and my melt pot, before finishing it with a bit of bling.

I will be listing this in my Etsy shop at some point.

Thank you for your visit.
