Blog Hop with TLC

Create With TLC is haveing a blog hop and there is a freebie image at each blog stop--soooo what are you waiting for--come and join us.This is the pre-coloured image I was given to use and also give as a freebie-"Trio at the Beach/Vintage"just right click and save as-
I decided to make a journal page, the background was created with Brushos and stamps from Polka Doodle and a Crackle stamp-thinks it's Crafty Individuals-not sure and a white pen.I added strips of drywall tape,octopus charm/dewdrops from stash-the pink and green strips were made with the nail varnish marbling technique.I distressed the edges of image and added DI to torn edges and covered the image in clear embossing powder,slightly crumpled it and wiped over with more distress ink,the sentiment was also a TLC freebie.

Summer in a Box

I have a box card to share today which came about because after been forced to craft on the bed and getting purple spray on quilt cover and throw(don't believe them when they say washable!!!)I decided to clear my desk-----got as far as sorting some craft mag freebie papers and digital images and thought ooh they would make a good box card--my story anyway and desk is still the same!!!AS I said the images and papers were craft mag freebies and I just added glamour dust-I usually cut these cards by hand but I bought some from Craftwork Cards which are slightly larger.
