Beautiful Criss Cross Card - London Tilda

 Hi everyone,

I hope your week is going well, it will soon be the weekend.

I thought I would pop in to share a card I made just for fun.

I stamped up London Tilda and coloured her with distress reinkers. I have sprinkled some shabby white frantage around the outside of the image.

 DI list:

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose,Worn Lipstick

Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain

Coat and Umbrella: Bundled Sage

Boots: Pumice Stone

The sentiment pulls out of the top of the card. I stamped the sentiment with a versmark clear stamp pad and sprinkled some gold embossing powder over the top and heat set it with my heat gun.

The tabs at the top have been cut from a Tonics die and I threaded some olive green satin ribbon through the holes finishing off with some pearl gems.

The stand has been die cut using a Joy Crafts die.

All the embellishments are from my crafty stash.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Thank you for popping in.

Brand New challenge At Creative Inspirations

 Hi everyone,

Wow, here we are in September already, this year is flying by. I returned to school yesterday although some of the students don't come back until tomorrow. There is always so much to do at the beginning of term and of course we have to ensure that all the measures are in place to keep everyone safe.

I have had a bit of time away from crafting as my mojo left me, and on top of that I injured my leg which meant I could do nothing other than sit with my leg elevated for three weeks. 

So today we have a brand new challenge beginning at Creative Inspirations and the theme for this month is.......

Spots and Dots or Inky splats!

Polkadoodles are sponsoring us this month so I have coloured up one of their images called  'Ruby Hey There' and I have coloured her with distress reinkers.
