Witches ATC

Originally uploaded by Eclectic Storm
The theme this week on TMTATC is Walpurgisnacht which i think in English means Night of the Witches,but im not sure.
I just love these old crones swapping spells over a nice cup of tea they look as if they wouldnt hurt a fly.

Made this for the TMTATC challenge
This weeks theme is Mermaids and Water Sprites.
My ATC background is made using card,twinkling H2os,and deep image crystal clear glazing crystals.
Although the back is wavy it is still ATC size and looks like the ocean floor.
The Mermaid face is made of friendly pastic,with beads,charms and rayon threads.
A little different i know but i was in a 3D collagey mood and i hope you like her.

Ive used clipart,tassels,peeloffs,bindi,s and ive used one of the air dry clay molds i made earlier today,Its the one that came out all raggedy which i love.
The background is a peice of card that i have used Pinata alcohol inks on and i much prefer the colours of these to the ranger ones they seem to stand out more,
Anyway thanks for looking and i hope you like it.

Molding Madness

Found some old molds i made ages ago as i was rumaging round this morning, so got my Makins Clay out (terracotta) and pushed some in the molds.
As you can see i started to run out when i got to the chat noir mold so two of them are going to look nice and tattered.
I will show you how they come out when they are dry and i have coloured them.

Gordon and i were at the Ally Pally papercraft show selling our wares and we had a great time as usual.A big hello to Marina and Mary it was lovely to see you both again.

The samples above were made by our friend Jayne using our Rubber stamps,Twinkling H2os and twinkling H20 solution that enhances the colours even more and enables you to paint onto acetate plastic glass and other shiny surfaces.
Jayne demonstrated this product for us and we sold out of the 200 bottles we took with us in a day and a quarter.
Thanks Jayne for helping us this weekend we really enjoyed your company.

Another great day and the highlight of it for me was meeting Linda and her friends.
Linda was really upset because she couldnt get her friendly plastic to do friendly things and always ended up in a mess.
So i sat her down in front of everybody and took her through it step by step and she was fabulous and so was the brooch she made.
We worked out the problems she had been having was caused through overheating the plastic, which i dont think she will do again now shes got the hang of it.
