Hey everyone! Today I have two ATCs to share with you. I used several Halloween stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps! which will be listed below. There is also a process video showing exactly how I made the cards from start to finish, at the bottom of this post.
For my DT post for today I have made a tag. I had a bit of a struggle with it though as at one point I thought I would have to throw it away ! In the end I think I quite like it. :o)
This tag was cut from a gelli print. I put so much stuff over the top that you can't see the print anymore ! lol. That was the reason I almost threw it away...
First I stamped the cat on white card stock and coloured her with Copic Markers, then cut her out. Next I added the circles to the tag because I thought the cat didn't stand out enough.
I took it to my sewing machine and added some stitching. So far, so good. I then started stamping and I think I just stamped too much... I used a load of stamps and inks and ended up using some punchinella and white paint to cover some of it up or at least make it less visible. In the end I think I do like it.

Hello VLVS peeps!! Fiona here to share with you a little bit of inspiration using the wonderful Viva Las Vegastamps!!
This is a little art journal that I have created from an old book. I keep all my special little notes and cards that people send me in it.
I decorated the cover using some VLVS Stamps. I drew the heart but if you wanted to you could use the Squiggle Heart also. Doodle frame down the spine side and then some stitching stamps around the gesso block in the middle to frame it.
A little title to finish it all off. This one is almost full already. I think I'll have to start a new one!
Tera here again for another round of Mail art monday!
In the spirit of October let's share our nightmares...
My nightmare, I'm sharing with you in the form of mail art! (and I'm sure its not just my nightmare!)
Ok so as a dental hygienist one of my nightmares is of course for my teeth to fall out... so I found it too funny when i found the floss postoid from VLVS... I knew instantly that I needed to create this.
I know many of my patients have asked me about keeping their teeth, but its always funny when you tell them you really need to floss... (If you could swe what i find between teeth, then trust me you'd floss too!! Lol)
anyhow I hope you all find this as funny as I do :D
(I used various alcohol markers to color this and momento ink in tuxedo black)
Hiiii! We are here with the October Challenge and it is a bit spooky... but rest assured we do not require you to get spooky with your entry. Just be inspired by a single element OF our mood board.
Here it is :

Don't forget the rules:
-Create a new project based on our inspiration board (it has to be posted this month, but you can certainly link up to other challenges as well!)
i've got my spook on early and brought you this 'witching hour' mini journal page that's full of color and FUN! FUN! FUN!
how adorable and awesome is creepy creature sitting stamp designed by the fabulous Leslie Wood - heeheehee :-) i just couldn't resist sitting her on the Tim Holtz Ideaology broomstick, she is just the PERFECT size, too darn cute!
in the background i overstamped the design open circles stamp which helps give depth to the many layers of paints and markerpen doodles.
around the edges i randomly stamped doodle frame, i used this little gem of a stamp with a little black ink on this particular page to help draw your eye away from the main image, thus enables the eyes to travel around the page in an easy flow.
Dina wakley Media Paints were layered with a touch of Golden Fluid Neon translucent Acrylics, doodled with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons & doodled with marker pens...
and how relaxing it is to colorise Leslie Wood's amazing 'Creepy Critters' with my various coloring pencils :-)))
HAPPY HALLOWEEN eeeeeeeep!
