anything goes challenge

This week I made two projects for the anything goes challenge the theme is vintage and as I was under the weather on Fri (cannot eat curry ever again:( ) so I did a scrapbook page and a magnolia easel card. The papers I used for the page are black market ones torn and cut out and layered all distressed with brushed corduroy and the letters are coloured with copics. On the card I have used Tim distressing tool on every edge and torn a bit of paper then again gone round every edge with brushed corduroy Thanks for stopping by xx

week 4 on the anything goes challenge

Week 4 on Anything Goes Challenge was a bit of a challenge itself I was sooo busy last week with the wedding but I got it done thanks in part to sketch Saturday who saved my life again what would we do without them and Friday sketchers too, Magnolia cupcake on mixed paper background from wild rose studio, candy floss is the name and the image is coloured with copics mounted on bazzil everything except the tiny cupcake is from the craft den and that is actually mums (I pinched it!) x

All shades of GREEN even the HAIR

This weeks challenge on anything goes challenge is buttons and bows and monochrome i.e. all shades of one colour so.... I wanted to use my basic grey papers which are mostly green a little brown (poetic licence) but the Tilda image is ALL shades of green even her hair its all distress inks and the hair is crushed olive, clever eh looks yellow doesn't it.
The buttons are a sizzix die which I love the ribbon was coloured with bundled sage the picture does not really do it justice but I have to say it was a challenge and that's what its about.

anything goes part 2

This is my entry for the anything goes blog. Its an old choc box, Easter egg shaped painted with gesso after a gentle rub over with sand paper then painted cream on the inside and out and covered it inside with cream bazzil and stamped it. Ive pleated cream lace and stuck it under the lid then cut a pink bo bunny paper backing stuck a few roses on and then mounted a magnolia image that I'd experimented with coloured distress inks for the bridesmaids cards (see previous post, everything comes in useful), I then added some extra pearls. I hope you like it x

prisma elbow !

These are the thank you cards for the bridesmaids at Sara's wedding only 10 days to go can't believe it no panic or anything but the dress maker rang on Sat to say couldn't fit my dress it wasn't ready EEK! but she has assured me it will be ready on Thurs so 3 days to lose 10 stone ha ha but then it won't fit so back to the chocs, any way I've gone off on a tangent again. Back to the cards the pics are coloured with prismas and all that blending has killed my elbow but I think actually its worth it BO bunny papers which I love and some wedding day ribbon layered on organza ribbon on top of some erm.... not sure what you would call it lacey cobwebby stuff or pretty tat maybe!!! Back tomorrow with the anything goes challenge x

A new challenge x

Great news Lynne has started a new blog http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/ and I'm greatly honoured to be part of her design team thanks Lynne.this is my card the first challenge is wings and the colours blue brown and yellow. This was all a challenge NO PINK !!!

I have used a magnolia stamp (as usual) and distress inked it with brushed corduroy tumbled glass and scattered straw and stickled the wings for some added bling the watering can is weathered wood the papers are basic grey origins and a few prima flowers in the garden scattered around . the pin through the magnolia banner with a woodware sentiment on it was a homemade one a headpin two beads and some glossy accents and bish bash bosh a blingy pin I think I got that off Sandra's blog http://sandrasplace-sandra.blogspot.com/ a while ago. everything I have used is available from Lynne at the http://www.craftden.co.uk/
