I've joined the Fantasy Stampers DT.


Hello bloggy friends, happy Saturday to you!

I've been looking forward to telling you that I've been invited to join some lovely crafty ladies on the design team at Fantasy Stampers challenge blog, it's been a long time since I've done any challenge blog stuff for various reasons, i have missed it so I'm happy to jump back in.

The theme for the new challenge is

The colour Purple

I gently brushed Milled Lavender distress ink through my brick stencil, then stamped Shepherds Purse in Dusty Concorde ink and washed over it with a very wet small paintbrush to give a washy look. Then I splattered a little more Dusty Concorde across the card and added a sentiment.

There are some lovely inspiration cards by the other dt members over on the Fantasy Stampers blog, why not pop over and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Finish it Friday #7

Good Morning!

Well it will hopefully be morning when this goes live, I'm scheduling because I'll be in the middle of a field with no Internet, but it's good to take yourself off once in a while isn't it, and I'll be with good friends and my wellies!

So, what unloved scraps have I thrown together for this week then.....

I had a dig in the abandoned Gelli print pile and found this one that I could match up with a part done butterfly montage topper that had an Anglina film butterfly on, the butterfly was very battered and old so I pulled it back off and added a plain one, just stamped in Lettuce ink to match, I decided to leave it uncoloured to stand out against all that yellowy green. So I just trimmed everything up, edged with a black inkpad, layered onto black card and added some torn parchment paper and sticky gems.

Hope you like it!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges....

Fab and Funky Things with wings

Crafting with an attitude Anything goes

Have a lovely weekend!

Finish it Friday #6

Good Morning and happy nearly weekend!

Another Finish it Friday project then, here we go....

This one is combining two abandoned pieces, the background was done by brayering various colours of Paperartsy chalk paint and then stamped in paint with my Journalling stamp set. I was trying some colours together that I wouldn't normally combine, I quite like this one so I'm. It sure why I put it in the unloved box.


The central piece has been in my scraps forever, since I was demoing Angelina film/fibres at all the shows around the country, it just needed finishing so I coloured the corset with Promarker, and added Glossy Accents.


What have you got cluttering up your desk then? You gonna go and use it up?

Have a great weekend whatever you're up to!

Easy Happy Birthday

Good afternoon!

I should have blogged on Friday with another Finish it Friday project, the project was done but I ran out of time to blog.

This Friday seems ages away so I thought id sneak in a quick blog post with a very quick birthday card.

This is also a finish it project, I had some swatches from when new embossing folders arrived ages and ages ago, and I had a handful of the little Clarity cat already stamped and cut into tiles, very handy in a hurry!

So you'll come back on Friday?

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by.

Slightly different this time, I diecut some parchment using a Tim Holtz cutter and used the Sprig and Circle Groovi plates to decorate the butterfly, easy!

Hope you like it.

Very quick blog today, truth is it's actually nearly midnight when I'm writing this ready for morning lol.

Thanks for stopping by!
