Party Time





Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight the theme is 'Time/Clocks'

I've used the Tim Holtz Alarm clock coloured with Brushed Pewter and Tarnished Brass stains and added a  clock face from the Thrift Shop Ephemera pack. The background was made using Oxide inks and with such a pretty dress on my little paper doll, it just had to be Party Time, which was printed on the computer.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for visiting,

Leave a little sparkle


Hello, and thanks for calling in,  I've another card to share using my new Rubber Dance stamp.  This time I've fussy cut the lady from the background, coloured her with Distress Crayons and matted her onto a piece of Oxide coloured card and lightly stamped the Tim Holtz Papillion background adding some faux stitching.  The base card uses the first and less watered application of the inks.

The sentiment was printed on the computer, I also added Frosted Lace stickles over the word Sparkle. then added some die cut wildflowers, again, coloured with Distress Crayons.

As I'm using my Rubber Dance stamp, I'm going to enter this at Rubber Dance Forever Stamping Challenge.

I'm also entering The Artistic Stampers challenge - Take a Little Colour

Have a great day,
Avril xx

You don't need Therapy




Hello,  It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is  'You've Got a Friend'  you can interpret this as you will - real/imaginary or animal, it's up to you.

I've used a photo from the internet, these friends look as if they're having such fun.  I used a few vintage layers,   some wildflowers and a computer generated sentiment.

The rest of the design team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.

Do What you Love

Hello, I've not had much inspiration or time in the craft room lately, but as I've got four 'girly' birthdays this month, it's given me the push to get my act together and get organised.  As a little incentive to get  motivated, I bought this Dancing Woman stamp from Rubber Dance and she's been well inked this last week.

The card base had already been embossed with crackle paste through the Flourish stencil and was in the 'bits box' so I dipped it in Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Antique Linen DOX.  I used Brushed Pewter Distress paint and my trusty finger over the embossed cracks - which gave it a look of Mother of Pearl!  The stamped panel was a mop up piece, again in the bits box, that must have mopped up some Brushed Pewter stain along the way as it has a lovely sheen,  I used Worn Lipstick DI to emphasise her dress and Wilted Violet to the flowers.  The sentiment is computer.  I used a dull silver card to mat.

I am entering this at:
  Rubber Dance Forever Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes
  Rubber Dance - September colour challenge
 
 Challenge 1.-14. Sept.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully I'll get caught up on blog visiting over the weekend.
