Happy Tuesday.........................


Hello,

I just wanted to share the card I made for a special birthday girl as she would have received it by now (hi Bev). I have coloured my image with distress inks. The scalloped shape is nestablilites. I have distressed edges with vintage photo. The grungeboard shapes from Tim Holtz I have glimmer misted also the roses. I have doted around the swirls with stickle glue, pearls and liquid pearls.
Thank you for looking and have a great day.

Whiff of Joy Challenge Guest Designer Call.........


Hello,

Hope your weekend is going well. I feel that spring is trying to peek around the corner for us all. I am going to keep my fingers and toes crossed as I yearn so much for that to happen. This week over at WOJ we have a sketch from Katharina to follow. Thank you so much Katharina I loved playing with this. I have coloured my image with distress inks and decoupaged her and some of the hearts for a change. I have distressed everything with tattered rose and fired brick. My little roses I have added some tattered rose around the edges.

Thank you so much for looking and any comments that you may leave I really appreciate them.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy crafting.
love

Colour Create......................


Hello,

I so hope everyone is ok. How beautiful did that snow look. Well today I have made a card for a brand new challenge! It is just such a fabulous idea to challenge us with different colour palette's. This week it is green, brown and pink. Go and check out the gorgeous cards made by the so talented design team. So for my entry into the challenge Colour Create I have coloured my image with distress inks. For my background I have used tattered rose, antique linen and pine needles. I have also distressed my paper with tattered rose. I made my hearts with green metal. I cuttlebuged them and sanded the heart to reveal the metal embossed underneath.

Thank you so much for looking.

Keep warm everyone.
