My Fave Fave Image

Morning and first of all-all clear from the hospital yyaaayy-moles not suspicious at all thank goodness!!!
We have a new challenge at Crafting With Friends and sponsored by Moonflower--I used this beautiful image BUT turns out I used the wrong one and now have no idea where this one is from-so if anyone can enlighten me to give credit I would be grateful.

UPDATE--Image is a FB freebie from Sweet Escape--thank you to Granmargaret !

I printed the image twice to 3-D the flowers-image coloured with promarkers with added glamour dust and glossy accents.
The die-cut frame is from Spellbinders/pearls/ribbon and webbed background from stash.
I kept card pretty much CAS so as not to distract from the beautiful image and this card is a birthday card for future DIL.

Fishing Rules

Morning and this is my second DT post today which is for Love to Scrap ATG challenge sponsored by DRS designs and I used their
Fishing Rules image swiped with Distress inks,the fish posters are cut from papers by Docrafts -I used an 8"x6" Jigsaw piece from Lynette Jasper and covered it with paper from The Works,added splat stamps from Crafters Companion-added two lolly sticks wiped with distress ink and a cycle die from Spellbinders cut in half and added distress stains to look like an abandoned bicycle.Special ,memories for me as I used to go sea fishing with my Dad when I was younger and we played Gone Fishing at his funeral as the last song--I remember when he caught some flat fish and eels -left them in a bucket of water overnight in the kitchen and when we got up the next morning they were all flapping about on the kitchen floor-Mam went beserk lol.

Quick and Simple ATCs?????

Morning -hope everyone is well-we have a new ATG challenge at Simply Papercrafts sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps.I made an ATC set simple,quick and easy-right??? WRONG!!!I made three using an oxides background then overstamped and sprayed with sealant promptly causing the ink to smear!!!I made another three embossing the stamps then overstamped and when I picked them up ink smeared again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my third and final three background was made with Brushos,number stamp are an old unnamed stamp,then oxide ink through an AALL&Create mask-oxide round the edges and finish---still not really happy but enough is enough so here they are-----

Look quite inoffensive don't they---looks can be deceiving I tell you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holly-Ann the Drumming Unicorn

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponsored by My Stitch Back in Twine but due to printer trouble my card is my own stamp.My card was made for our youngest grandaughter Holly-Ann who was 9yrs old on Wednesday-she loves Unicorns and as she is currently having drumming lessons calls herself The Drumming Unicorn!!!

The background was made by stamping music score from Kanban onto plain green paper(green is her favourite colour-mine too)the stamped drum set(which I stamped and silver embossed twice and decoupaged small drum and roses)the drumsticks(stamped and cut out)and the co-ordinating sentiment stamps are all part of the same set from Crafters Companion.The birthday sentiment was printed in Dafont before printer broke as I knew what I was going to need luckily!!!-then I just doodles round all sentiment edges.

I coloured the image with promarkers and drums ended up being a different shade purely because I stamped onto different card.I also added a Unicorn image inside.
Holly is now the proud owner of a set of drums-thankfully at her Mums and not ours lol and best of luck to the neighbours!!!

OOhh and as it's also Friday the 13th it's Hubbys 69th birthday too and we are having a little party for Holly tonight so will catch up with you all tomorrow.

Cheers!!!

Morning -hope everyone is well and ready to join our new ATG/Dies/stencils challenge at Create and Inspire-sponsore by Sweet Escape Digis,and as I am now sorted with a new printer I used the beautiful image "Cheers",coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents.

I cut the image out and used silicone gel for depth and placed on a Spellbinders die-cut frame--the background was made using two shades of oxide ink through a Dutch Doobedoo and a TH stencil,the strips of adhesive gems from Home Bargains,also used one for an ear-ring.

Monty Python Inspired

Morning and we were absolutely devastated yesterday I went to let our two ducks Daphne and Derek out to find the duck house side broken into fox pawprints all over outside had found a weak spot and ducks gone-we have had them from 4 days old!!! Chickens were on high alert and not a peep out of any of them all day-my son saw the fox walking down the street the other night and said it was big and with a very big bushy tail-next door neighbour said he haerd a commotion at 3am but couldn't see anything!!!

Right onto card we have a new Monochrome challenge at Daisy Chain starting today and yyyaaaaayyy this is the first one-layer CAS card that I am actually pleased with a Monty Python inspired card,Stamps used are Inkylicious,Lisa Horton from Creative Expressions and the hand is part of a collage stamp from Docrafts I do believe(lost the wrapper)sentiment stamp was from a craft mag freebie set and I drew the lines with a Sharpie and a ruler and red lips was also a sharpie.

Art Journal Page

Morning and hope you all remembered to put the clocks forward --we have a new "Just for Fun" challenge at A Inky Mess and I made a journal page.A coat of gesso first of all then a couple of Decoart sprays and dripped the green instead of spraying.Stamps are from AALL&Create and the Art stamp from Bee Crafty which was one of four I won last month.The circles were made with a bottle lid dipped in gesso and the green stripes were made with an elastic band wrapped around cardboard and inked.
Think this ended up a little darker than I meantand should have added glossy accents to the light bulbs!

Bee Thankful

I have a quick little thank you card-I painted black card with Aztec silver metallic paint and two sizes of Bee from Chocolate Baroque-the negative part from a Gummiapan die-cut as a frame which I doodled round edges,stamped thank you was a craft mag freebie and the two fussy cut Bees were recycled from a greetings card-everything put onto 3-D sticky pads.

Mini Milk Cartons

Morning and we have a new "Just For Fun" challenge at Crafting With Friends and something different I made up two little die-cut milk cartons I bought from a craft show quite a few years ago which I found whilst looking for a lost die-cut(never found it!!!)The stitched die-cut squares are from The Works,teddy bear stamp was a craft mag freebie and the flower stamp is a Polka Doodle one stamped five times and layered,pearl flower centre from stash and mini bulldog clips from Asda.The cartons are big enough for a Cadburys creme egg.

Will catch up with you all tomorrow as going for tea and having a sleepover at eldest Sons so grandaughters can spend some time with grandsons.
