Set Me free

Morning and my card today is using a digi which was designed and drawn by my son for a tattoo(he is a self taught tattooist with his own studio)-I coloured it with watercolours and added glossy accents to the light bulb and butterfly--distress inks round all edges and butteflies cut from paper in stash.
The B.paper was made putting flowers and leaves through big shot between 2 sheets of watercolour paper and both pieces matted onto black cardstock.
UPDATE-Just changed photo as this morning the glossy accent over the watercolour has created a crackle effect--happy accident/discovery???

In The Garden

Morning no dramas today but we have a new ATG/Summer/Seaside challenge at Create and Inspire as we are sponsored by Bugaboo Designs I used the beautiful image Floral Trio Frame 1 coloured with promarkers.I cut the squares up individually matted onto red card-then onto spotted then striped scraps of paper-the B.paper is a delicate flower patter from goodness knows where and even when--the blue gems are irl the same colour as the butterflies but we know the camera never lies--right???--kept CAS and room for personalisation when I know who for.

Is it a Frog or a Dead Moth???

Morning and hope everyone is well--hubby called me into the greenhose to see a tiny frog he had seen on one of the tomatoe plants----now bearing in mind hubby is waiting for an appointment for the eye hospital and in my defence I didn't have my reading glasses on and I was stood behind him!!!We both duly admired such a tiny little thing--then he called our grandaughters to have a look --Ellie took one look and poked it-getting a telling off for it-she then said it isn't even a frog grandad --it's a dead moth oh dear still laughing now!!!!!

Right we have a new "Summer and/or Beach" challenge at Daisy Chain and I went with Summer using a Chocolate Baroque stamp and glossy accents on wings-Decoart spray-lace/last scrap of B.paper from stash and the large Bee was recycled from a greetings card-the square stitched dies from The Works and all the layers on 3-D foam pads.

What a Palaver

Morning and can you believe we are into July already???I couldn't that's why my card was a little last minute and note to myself don't do fussy cutting until I get new scissors and when I do they will get hidden as find mine all over as they get used for allsorts even cutting wires I found out----not on !!!!!
Right onto card ---we have a new Use a Shaped Card challenge at Get Creative and we are sponsored by Twinkle Lane Designs,Eureka Stamps and
We are 3 whose image "Vintage Rose Teacups " I used.Now you would think there was a clue in the name--Vintage Rose? went right over my head!!!I made a stepper card amd had the bright idea of paper piecing the image then I to add insult to injury I even stamped some craft mag freebie images all needed to be cut out and scissors on the way out didn't look too bad until I posted the pics OMG was I wrong -get new scissors and hide them asap!!!I added glamour dust to the cupcake icing and then even used the cut off pearls boy was I just not thinking??? Then--then I had the bright idea of using Cosmic Shimmer liquid pearls and of course when I finally persuaded it to leave the bottle the heat had made it runny --sooo if you really want to see said card lol here it is----am even having the cheek to enter challenges lol

Ralph the Raven or Russell the Crow!!!

Morning and this is my third and last post of three today--hope you are still with me lol.I also have a little Holly-Ann(9yrs)wisdom??? to share today earlier this week Ellie and Holly brough a young injured crow in Holly wanted to call it Ralph(she thought it was a Raven-but Ellie won with Russell Crowe)it was put into an empty rabbit hutch and fed and watered(said rabbit had died last week and now buried in the garden)Ellis had the bright idea of keeping the hutch for injured animals and Hollys quick response was but what if we find an injured elephant??????-how her mind works boggles me-think we might need a larger hutch lol.UPDATERussell is eating well and looking quite perky had a couple of flutters in kitchen to stretch his wings-but can't fly-so see how things go-might be another addition to animal farm!!!

Anyway onto card or cards-we have an ATG challenge at Love To Craft and I was asked for an anniversary card so two birds with one stone springs to mind--anyway she wanted black and white so I made two cards identical but different colour combination---The oval frame is Spellbinders but all the other dies are from Tattered Lace/ribbon and pearls from stash--she chose the 2nd one but the first was used for my SIL anniversary --so result all round.
