TV Special

So the reason I haven't posted much recently is that I've been busy making samples for Oak House Studio - yes, Lynnda will be back on the TV but this time it's HOCHANDA Freeview 39.

Wednesday October 21st

11am  Roses
2pm    Double Daisy
6pm   Best Bits

There are some classic designs plus lots of new stamps, new triple ink pads and Pure Colour inks. My fingers have been every colour of the rainbow - here is one of my cards:

I've used the Pure Colour inks to spray the background, painted the Rose with it and coloured the twill ribbon. The new Rosebud Border looks fab stamped with the Triple Meadow Greens and the words are from the Friends Words set.

Check out the Oak House Studio blog for more inspiration from the Design Team and don't forget to watch .... Wednesday 21st, first show at 11am.

Autumn Colour

I'm not sure where the time has gone but at last I've had chance to make a card for the Less is More Challenge week 245  - ONE LAYER and with the theme AUTUMN.  I do love this time of year - cold, crisp, sunny days with all the trees in their autumn glory!

I received a box of new goodies from Oak House Studio so that's what I've used.  I've masked a panel and blended on inks from the Autumn Triple Ink Pad.  Over that I've stamped the Beech Leaf and a phrase from the You are my Rainbow set.

Thanks for visiting!!

October so it's Pumpkins!

Here's my October page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where the theme is ORANGE and PUMPKINS.   I thought orange was a bit too close to last month's so I've gone for a purple background with a splash of orange.

The base is a wash of Shaded Lilac Distress Stain edged with Purple Colour Chemistry ink.  I've also used the Purple ink for the stamping - some Tim Holtz, some Chocolate Baroque.   The pumpkins are the BOO! set from Oak House Studio - a round circle which I used to create the moon, the pumpkin outline and then you get a choice of scary faces!   It's just finished with the October calendar and the bat. 

My blog seems to be suffering at the moment but I have been making stuff although I can't show you yet.  Come Monday all will hopefully be revealed. 

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments!.  Can't believe we only have two more months to go!!
