New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

Well what has happened to the summer? We have had so much rain here in Devizes these past few weeks. I have been trying to paint the fence in the garden and I keep getting rained off, still it's not all bad as it means I can slope off to my lovely new craft room.

Today I am showcasing my card for the new challenge at Ally's Angels and as always it is 

Anything Goes

For this challenge I have made a criss cross card.  The image I have coloured up is an old Whimsy Wee stamp called Rosetta and painted her with distress reinkers.

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Trousers: Bundled Sage
Top: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy
Wings: Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold
Flowers: Dried Marigold, Bright Yellow (Zig Pen)
Leaves: Bundled Sage

The leaves and swirl have been die cut in peach card, dipped into a versmarak clear ink pad and I sprinkled on some shabby white frantage and heat set it with my heat gun.

The sentiment pulls out from the top of the card. I have added a couple of tabs to the top and threaded some ribbon finishing off with a couple of peach pearl gems.

The sentiment has been stamped with a stazon clear ink pad and I have added some gold embossing powder.

The stand has been cut from a joy crafts die in coordinating peach card.

The lucky winner will win this fantastic prize from Ally:

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Mid-way Inspiration for Creative Inspirations

 Hi everyone,

I'm back!!

I hope you are all well.

We have broken the back of the work that needed doing in our new home, including a brand new craft room for me😊 There is still more work to do, but we can pace ourselves now.

Today I am sharing a mid-way inspiration card for Creative Inspirations. The theme is........

Summer Sun

 The Paper Shelter are sponsoring us for this challenge and have kindly given us this image to play with called Stylish at the Beach

I have coloured the scene with distress reinkers.

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick

Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen

Clothes: Weathered Wood, Victorian Velvet

Sand: Brushed Corduroy

The shape of the card has been cut with a Go Kreate die. Tucked behind the image is some currugated card which I have dipped in a clear stazon ink pad, sprinkled on some shabby white frantage and heat set it. All the embellishments are from my crafty stash.

The prize for this challenge is:

3 images of the winners choice 

That's all from me today, but I will be back a bit later in the month.

Take care.
