The Last Alter It Monthly

By the skin of my teeth I have just managed to enter the Alter It Monthly challenge. I did mean to enter earlier but what with Christmas and other stuff it never happened, but better late than never. Sadly this is their last ever challenge and their final theme is celestial, and as I don't have any stars, moon or sun stamps it had to be angels.

You'll have to excuse the poor quality of the photo, as you know I still don't have a camera and my iphone does not take good pics in poor light. It does look better than this in real life honest LO!.

I used one of the angel stamps from Kreativhobby. I stamped it onto some patterned paper that had a light coat of gesso then I used inktense pencils to colour the angels. The frame was gessoed and stamped with versamagic inks and stamped with a music stamp (even though you can't see it!) Then I made some more Tim Holtz roses using the pine cone die and tinted with the versamagic inks.

Have just edited this to add a better photo. Also I would like to thank all the Design Team of Alter It Monthly for all their hard work and for all the inspirational projects that they have created since running the challenge. Wishing them all good luck in their new ventures.

See you on Sunday

Happy Crafting XX

So sad to hear Alter It Monthly is no longer continuing. I never participated but loved the inspiration from other artists...
