Some bits n bobs

Hello.... Have had 3 days off work but have a bad cold so have hardly done anything except sneeze and sleep. I am feeling a tad more with it tonight, so thought I would post some bits.
This card is for this weeks Emergency Crafters Challenge. Sponsored by Lili Of the Valley.
The background is sprayed with Cosmic shimmer sprays and acrylic ink.
The image and sentiment, is Lili of the Valley. Coloured with Pro Markers.

I also wanted to enter some challenges. Over at Stampotique Designers Challenge, they are having two.
The first one is Weather, the other is Scrap it. For the weather challenge I decided to do a tag. This lovely Tiddlyinks image as she had an umbrella. I coloured her with Pro Markers. The stamp is sprayed with Cosmic Shimmers, and Archival ink, using Tim Holtz stamps.

For the Scrap it challenge, I found this pic I took some time ago. There is a photo a day challenge on instagram, and one of them is black and white. So I thought I could do this in black and white to post on there. (Not a prize winning challenge on twitter search octoberchallenge).
The background is sprayed with cosmic shimmers and perfect pearls. I used Tim Holtz stamps again and coloured the squares with chalk pen. The circles are acrylic paint and the words were made using Dymo jnr.
As I did this one from start to finish today, I would like to enter it also in to Balzer Designs blog.
"Art Journal every day'. I certainly try! Not always successful, but I try!
I would also like to enter it in to the Art journal Cafe challenge. 'Anything can be a stamp'. Well thanks to Kate Crane, I used various bottle top lids and the end of a pencil for the circles. I used the edge of a old card to stamp the lines (My gym membership card comes in useful for something!)

The next few projects were just for fun. I enjoy it so much. Obviously inspired by Kate Crane. I used a Stampotique image, coloured with Pro Markers. I used this bit of paper to spray a tag on. I really liked the effect so didnt want to waste it. So I sprayed a couple more colours on to it. 
I used Tim Holtz stamps and Faber Pitt pens so do the borders.

This background was also done by Cosmic Shimmer sprays. Tim Holtz stamps. The image is Totally Gorjuss. It reminded me (if I was that cute) of me and my cat. The crown and wings are Tim Holtz grunge shapes. Covered in glitter and glossy accents. Images coloured with Pro Markers.

The background is black acrylic paint. With red acrylic paint on top. Another Totally Gorjuss image coloured with Pro Markers.

The next two projects are inspired by RachO113. Check out her blog and her you tube, her videos are amazing. One of her videos shows her making a tag. I didnt have the same ink pads so I used distress ink pads. Stamped on top and then drew the white bits with chalk pen. The middle clock is covered in glossy accents.

This is done on canvas. I covered it in paint and cosmic shimmer sprays. The swirl is Tim Holtz grunge shape covered in glitter and glossy accents. I then added turtle charms.

I hope you like my stuff. Thank you for your kind comments! :)
