Hi All

Hope you all had a lovely crafty weekend!

This fortnight's challenge over at Craft Boots is Bowtastic and here is the card I came up with

I have used Dylan in the Daisies Digi stamp only available form Crafty Boots, I have used Promarkers to colour him in.

I made my own back ground using masks and Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The ribbon started of as white but I coloured it using Spun Sugar Distress Stain.  The pins and pearls are from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Please pop over to the  Crafty Boots Challenge Blog and check out the fabby work from the rest of the team and hope you can also join us.

Art Parts

Hi Everyone

Well this has to be a record me blogging two days in a row :)

If you follow me on twitter some of you will have seen that I had my first ever Art Parts delivered on Friday from Crafty Boots and here is what I made with them

I started by covering my square base and scalloped edge with papers from my stash and distressed around the edge with peeled paint distress ink and spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Teal Wash Mist, in fact nearly everything on this project got a spritz with it lol.  I then also covered the flowers with the same paper and added buttons to the centres of them.  The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley stamped in peeled paint distress ink and cut out with a spellbinder die and edged with stormy sky distress ink, the butterflies are also cut from a spellbinder die, which I cut from white card and covered in stormy sky distress stain and inked the edges with pealed paint to match the rest of the project.  I finished off by going around the edge with Summer Blue pva glue.

I also just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has popped by and left comments it really means a lot to me.

Good Luck and my first ever tag

Hi Everyone hope you have all had a good start to the week?

This fortnight's challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenge is Good Luck set by the lovely Sara 

Here is my take on it 

This is the first ever tag I have made and quite different in style to my usual girly cards covered in flowers lol,  but I'm quited please with how it turned out, I also have to say a big thanks to Stephanie-Emma  for cutting the tags out for me so I could try making then.  Thanks hun it was really kind of you :) 

To start with I covered my tag in news paper and then inked over it with my new old paper distress stain and edged the tag with vintage photo distress ink and some faux stitching which doesn't show up so well in the photo , I stamped the image which is from Creative Expressions on to newspaper stuck on card with the same ink and riped the edgeds to give it a distressed feel and again edged with the same ink to finish it off.

The wooden letters came from Cuddly Buddly  which I covered in old paper distress stain and over stamped in vintage photo distress ink, the buttons also came from here.

I hope you can pop across to check out the fab projects by the rest of the design team and also join us in the challenge.

Hope everyone has a fab week :)

Tag using Favorite Tool

Hi all

I have just started to makes tags so though I would share tonight's effort with you.

I covered my base tag with a sheet of First Editions Summer Breeze. I think are my fav papers ever!!  I then inked around the edge with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp (Dainty Dancing) and coloured her in with Spectrum Noirs, I am loving these pens and finally feel I am getting the results I want :) I cut her out using nesties on my beloved big shot and again inked around the edges with the same distress ink and matted on to brown card cut again from a nestie.

The sentiment stamp is all so from Lili of the valley stamped in the same ink to match with the rest of the tag and cut out with nesties.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon from the Ribbon Girl and the pearls and button are from my stash.

I would like to enter this tag into Lili's Little Fairies Challenge  - Favourite Craft Tool

Hope you all have a fab Sunday!
