Pennents redone in proper size

I got some of my pennents done for this swap and thought I would share them here
There are all done using the distressed inks  mixed with pearl x in the mini misters for the backgrounds.

I used stickers to create the words    

                                                         This one is created with a face stamp pI sanded the area a bit to add some contrast , layered it on top of the background and added various embellishments

this one is pretty simple a dragon stamp and stickers

I did a bit of layering on this one and have since added some embellishments to it after I scanned it

I saved the best for last well I think so anyways   this is my favorite one so far

I used some embrossing powder to help secure the chain to the card and the word is just a sticker from my collectionn

something new

I played with Ranger reinkers and pearl ex
its so much fun playing with these products and learning all of the things that I can do with them.
These are for a pennent swap on the All things Tim swap.
I used a mask from his collection and the words are cut out with my silloutte.
used acrylic dabbers on a stamp for the dragonflies and the face is stamped with black soot distressed ink

I finally had the chance to play a bit tonight

I used a couple of techniques from Tim Holtz blog 
the journal cover is made using the technique found here

I used a tulip stamp and some orange and green paper
I like the way it came out I thinik it might have been better if I had use a different stamp for the embrossing powder.   but im pretty happy with it

so far this is just a sheet of paper i made using this technique

I  really like the way it came out   I used a dragon fly stamp and my green dabber for the stamped image then I misted everything with   two differen colors of the ink mixed with pearl ex in the mini misters one of them was tattered rose. can't remember what the other one was
then I stamped over the wole thiing with a word stamp and black ink
I have no idea what i am going to use the paper for yet but im sure it will be for a special project of some sort
