Molly Moonbeams bad hair day!

Well my little Molly Victoria Trixie is turning into a right little madam indeed! She seems very bright, interested in toys, shows off pulling her dummy in and out herself and lives to hold hands and play with toys, she's worked out how to rock herself in the carseat bless her! Ethan gets on very well with her, she giggles her socks off when he plays with her, he hekps to put her dummy back in or tries to change her bum lol!

She woke up yesterday morning after her bath with frightful hair! I managed to put it in a bobble briefly but its been stuck like that for 2 days now haha!

I've also been frequenting Do Crafts lately to swap ATC's. I'm into them at the mo as its all I have time for! I look for a challenge, good ATCers particularly stampers to give me something to aim for, they do some fabulous work!

One such person is Tish (Kent) who swapped her gorgeous 6 sided ladies and gentlemen with me and asked for like for like, here was my response!

Its made with distress inks and then brushed with versamark reinker, stamps are time to stamp embossed with moonglow midnight emerald. Also stamped brown ink with bubblewrap, the tile is alcohol ink embossed with detail gold and its all edged with krylon gold :)

ATC's and more ATC's!

Gone a bit mad on ATC's this week lol! With a distinct lack of time in the day I can dabble here and there inbetween the kids falling asleep and just finish off in the evenings!

Did another 3 for 3 swap with Sherry from Do Crafts, I have 6 of her wonderful creations now, they're fab! Sherry's blog is here
Here's the 3 I sent to Sherry. First is Sweet Child Blu and is a stamp from Time to Stamp youthful nostalgia plate available here The background is moonglow starburst stains & gesso so its all sparkly!

This one is a Moon Dreams Femme on 6 tiles of 1"x1" stampbord and coloured with alcohol inks and glazed with dimensional magic.

This one is also from the youthful nostalgia plate and is stamped and embossed with moonglow copper obsidan on scraps of paper that have been inked and have layers of gesso on. Its a gatefold gothic arch so has an inside too!

This is the inside, again layered and swiped with gesso and the gold swirls are embossed

I've also made several encustic wax ATC's and other ones which are in my do crafts gallery here

Plodding on!

Moonbeams is still providing us with poo explosions up to her armpits! Although she's down to about 4 a day now so getting better *phew!*
Been looking at arty cards & ATC's and I sooooo wanna play and get messy! There is some amazing work around on blogs!
Anyways I have managed a little play around with the moonglow shadow inks again and they've turned out gorgeous! I love brown card and especially brown card which changes colour!

Here's some I made recently, you can see the glow on the top card. The bottom 2 are image wallets so they open up and have pockets inside for sending some stamped images.

I painted tilda with moonshadow ink too so the brown changes colour, its great stuff to work with!

And here's 2 of my darling babies! Ethan is being a good big bruv, awww he's a love for his mum, very helpful!
