CARD - pink floral & Ornate Oval Frame



Hey all!  Here is a birthday card I made for my mother.  The floral was made with the Build a Floral Spray cutting file set and the Ornate Oval Frame cutting file.  Rose was made with various distress inked  layers of  paper petals  all closed together with a small brad.  Then I  spritzed with homemade glimmer sprays to moisten and then scrunched and  gently unscrunched all the petals.  The leaves were painted and spritzed with distress inks and homemade spray as well.  The frame was cut from cereal box and painted with a vintage white acrylic paint and then a layer of Ranger Distress Crackle paint.... then sponged with distress ink so it stuck in the cracks.  The background was made with alcohol inks.

DT CALL still open until JUNE 4th.  :)

Happy Wednesday!

CARD - Come and Get It Challenge

Hey all!

I am sponsoring the Come and Get It Challenge Blog today.



 The FSS DT and I were invited to play along.  The theme is a sketch.  Here is my crack at it ;)


The image is from my new Dragonfly Flower Doodledallion Digi Set. I used watercolour pencils and a dove blender pen to color.  The embossed panels behind the image were fun to make.  I scribbled various rainbow colours of artist chalk pastels onto the raised design then brushed slightly watered down acrylic white craft paint until the colours started blending together.  The bottom panel is white cardstock with a aqua coloured acrylic paint smeared on using a cosmetic sponge.  I added stickles and pearl eyeballs to the dragonfly.


REMINDER:  Fred She Said DT CALL is open :)

new in the STORE

Hey all!

**Reminder... we are currently accepting DT applications :) Click HERE for deets!

Some new things in the store :)...

Donna made another wonderful Paper Set ... Yummy Delights!



I made a Dragonfly Flower Doodledallion Set.  It originated from a dragonfly I had in rubber form from my first foray into rubber stamps.  Here is a card I used the dragonfly on , along with rose and frame from the Ornate Pearl Frame and the Build a Floral Spray cutting sets:

See this frame? I should have a hand cuttable coloured frame set next week :)

 I converted the dragonfly to digital and thought that he needed something to land on :)  ... hence a new doodledallion!  This set comes with sentiments, several borders.. and whole bunch of elements.  This set is uncoloured.  Pre-coloured version/s should be available soon ( next week ).



Have a great weekend!
