Mini Canvas

 Good morning folks, on this lovely sunny Tuesday morning. I have had this canvas laying around my craft room for a while so thought I would take a picture to add to my blog. As I made this some time ago I can't remember all of the crafty bits used but the usual distress ink has definitely been used to colour the background and the die cut grungeboard. The little butterfly started off as plain silver but I added alcohol inks to make it look more aged. Maybe alcohol ink has been added to me as well, oh no silly me just plain alcohol has had that affect........
Thanks for looking and see you all soon.

Happy Mother's Day

 Happy Mother's day bloggers, hope everyone is having an enjoyable day and all Mums are being pampered and waited on. Well we can wish can't we lol. This is the "card" I have made for my mother in law this year. I say a card but I suppose it's a take on the exploding box that has been around for a while. I have added a paper flower arrangement in the centre made out of Cricut dies from the aptly named cartridge "Mothers Day Bouquet". I attached the flowers to wire stems and stuck them into a half cut polystyrene ball which I have coloured with a black promarker and then glittered with crystal glitter. The Happy Mothers Day in the opened box was also cut on the Cricut. The panels were created from nesties and the outside of the box was stamped with a design from Chocolate Baroque.
 Thanks for looking and hope to see you again soon. Byee...........

A New Baby

Good morning. My next door neighbours have just had their third baby which was a boy so I made this quick card for them using a stamp from Sheena Douglass. I coloured it using Promarkers. The die cut lace has been coloured with a blue distress ink and I matched it by using the same ink to colour the backing card to the image and sentiment.

Thanks for looking...

Flower Collage

Hi folks. Not sure if there is anyone left out there that still looks at this blog, but thought I would carry on posting crafty makes even if it just acts as a library/reference for myself. This card was stamped with a set from Artemio and coloured with distress ink. The butterfly was stamped and embossed first then masked off before the postcard design was stamped over the top. The dragonfly is also from the same set and stamped using a light grey ink to give a faded, watermark look. Hopefully it reached my Aunt in Canada in time for her birthday but I have a sneaking suspicion that it was probably a few days late. (sorry Aunty Doris!)
