Sketch Saturday....................

Hello,

Happy Monday hope your holiday has been wonderful. I can't believe it is going so quickly. Today I have made a card for the challenge over at Sketch Saturday which is your choice of any of the sketches so far. I have coloured my image with distress inks and added glitter pen to the flowers. I have distressed around my image with milled lavender. My papers I have distressed around the edges with Tim's distressing tool.

Thank you so much for looking and I wish you all a great week ahead!

Wish..................



Hello,


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Today I have been playing with my new stamps from Funky Kits by the fabulous designer Leanne Ellis. I was most impressed with the fabulous service of Funky Kits so super quick. I have coloured my image with pencil and sansador. I have distressed the background with distress inks weathered wood and antique linen. I have stamped the paper artsy stamps on the red paper with versafine sepia, and edged my papers with black distress ink. For the little heart I distressed with antique linen and stamped with sepia and edged with vintage photo.


Thank you so much for looking.

Cute Card Thursday.....................



Hello,


Good morning hope every one is good today. It is just so glorious here. There is a covering of thick frost every where and it is sparkling like crazy in the sun. I have made my card for this week's CCT challenge which is to include Hearts on your card. I have coloured my image with distress inks. The heart that I have 3d her onto is a Bazzill chip and I have painted this with milled lavender crackle paint. The paper is basic grey and I have added some swirls stamped with sepia versafine. The sentiment is die cut using quickutz distressed with vintage photo and all the papers I have edged with krylon gold. The flower is glittered to within an inch of it's life, and I have put this onto some fibers from bazzill.


The lovely Kathleen has given me this award. I have already passed this on so please feel free to lift this from my blog if you have not received this as I love visiting all your brilliant blogs.

Hope your Christmas preparations are moving along nicely and you are not too stressed! Have a great Sunday.

StampARTic challenge...................



Hello,


Well I was so looking forward to the start of the StampARTic blog. Which has the most fabulous designers who will be giving us all sorts of new technique's and articles. For their first challenge the most brilliant Camilla has used a folder technique. For my image I have coloured her in with distress inks. I have used a die cut from basic grey and distressed this with old paper and stamped paperartsy swirls to mount my Tilda on. I have also used old paper to distress the rest of my papers and the swirls on my patterned paper are stamped in versafine vintage sepia. I have die cut cuttlebug circles for the inside of my card and stamped another magnolia stamp on this.
I would like to say thank you so much for the comments that you leave I really appreciate them you are so very kind.
