Claire's birthday card.

This is the card I made for my daughter Claire. She is 26 this year.

I used JOFY and Paper Artsy stamps and distress inks, with a little Wink of Stella  pens.

Clarity Challenge August 15

Hi all Clarity stampers!

Another month has gone by!

I love Bingo! What a fantastic idea and so flexible.

I needed to make my ex mother in law a birthday card and I had in mind something very similar.

I have gone diagonal and used the birthday stamp as the stamp, stamped the flowers and got very messy with glitter.

I think it's a pretty card just right for her.

I hope you like it too?

Indigoblu Challenge August 15

Hi IndigoBlu  lovers!

This is my challenge piece for this month.

I was very lucky to win with my first entry a couple of months ago, and I love the prize stamps.

I have used 2 different colour gilding flakes, Chocolate and Lancashire Tart. I love the splat butterfly and I thought it would be perfect with the rich colours from the L T.

I mounted on 2 bright backing cards and added a couple of butterflies heat embossed onto acetate.

I hope you like.

Good luck to all.

Lavinia Challenge August - Anything but a Card

Hi, not sure what to do for this challenge but I had just finished a Finnabair inspired canvas so I thought that I would do something similar.

I have only used an 8 × 8 canvas, not too big.
I made a portrait of the lovely girl with flowers in her hair, made a frame from bits found in my craft room, glazed it with acetate and blinged it up with gilding waxes.

I coloured clear embossing paste with violet Brushos, and used it through a pretty stencil.

I made flowers and gave them a dash of violet. I used a few jewellery findings to go with the mini flowers and stamped 3 fairies on acetate. I also have a verse that starts with the words Fairy Dust and added it to a small bottle of glitter.

I hope you like it!
