While waiting in all day for a furniture delivery - I am today taking some time in the craft room to make pretty things, blog hop and enter some challenges! Well if I have to wait in for the delivery and can't leave the house, what else is a girl to do!
my first post is to enter the following challenges:
Cutie Pie challenge -Shades of blue
Created with love - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
Challenges 4 everybody - Anything goes
Great Impressions - Use something new
I brought some new papermania capsule papers from the range - I love the colour combination of dark blues and cream. The image is a Gorjuss girl stamped in memento ink and coloured with promarkers. (hair - cool grey 1 to 5 and black. Skin - Blush, sunkissed pink and coral. Dress flex markers - aquamarine, surf blue and soft aqua with cool grey on the tights. the books, almond, tan, sandstone, caramel) I then used the butterfly stamp that came with the stamp set to stamp onto the backing paper and cut them out. I cut along the patterned edge of the paper and used a new sizzix die to cut the doily. the sentiment was printed on the computer and cut out with a 2inch punch. the flowers were a woodware punch that I gave dimension and glitter to and it was finished (as usual) with ribbon and glitter!
the next one is using another Gorjuss girl - this time the one with the fox - but I've turned it into a little white dog!
this one is to enter:
Sketch n stash - sketch 131
Quirky crafts - use bird/bee or butterfly
Again using trusty promarkers and flexmarkers to colour her (skin - blush, sunkissed pink and coral. Hair - cool grey 1 to 5. Dress - light blossom, blossom, rose pink, water melon with grey on her tights. Dog also cool grey 1 to 3). Layered up with some really old scrapbook papers (I don't know where they are from sorry!) and I used a grey paper to mat and layer. the spotty paper is an embossing folder, that i rubbed victorian velvet distress ink over the top of. I used a white gel pen to add details - the butterfly is a marianne die that I added pearls to. again finished with paper flowers and a ribbon.
I hope you like them - off to find some more challenges, hop round some blogs that have very pretty things, and make more of my own. I may be back later depending on what time the delivery comes, but until then, if you drop by leave me a message so i know you have been. It makes my day to receive lovely messages!
