New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

We have a new  'Anything Goes' challenge beginning at Ally's Angels this evening.

I have coloured up another of the new LOTV stamps called Christmouse Bauble. I think it is so cute and was a real delight to colour up.

I have painted the image with distress reinkers and sprinkled some shabby white frantage around the outside. I have also used some glamour dust on the bauble.

The papers are by Maja.

DI list:

Mouse: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Worn Lipstick, Stormy Sky

Bauble: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Black Soot

The poinsettias were cut from a John Next Door die in coordinating papers. I added some twinkets to the leaves for some sparkle and placed some silver stamens in the centre. The silver twigs were also cut from a John Next Door die. To finish it off I added some white die cut branches, silver berries and two silver jingle bells as well as a blue organza ribbon bow.

Ally is offering the prize below to the lucky winner

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.

New Challenge At Creative Inspirations

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. 

We have a new challenge beginning at  Creative Inspirations this morning and our theme for this month is ............

Wonderful Winter/Feeling Festive

Our challenges are now changing back to monthly.

All Dressed Up Stamps are very kindly sponsoring us this month and we have been given a wonderful stamp to play with. This gorgeous stamp is called Christmas Skate and I just loved colouring her up. As always I have coloured her with distress reinkers and sprinkled some shabby white frantage around the outside of the image. I have added some glossy accents for the ice.

I made a criss cross card for this challenge and used up some papers I have had in my stash for a while.  I have added some snowflakes (John Next Door), gathered lace, pearl string and trim, white organza ribbon and a couple of ice skates charms, which seem to have gone a bit skew whiff in the photo.

For the flowers I have added some paper roses which have been sprinkled with twinklets to give them some extra sparkle. I have also added some twinklets to the snowflakes. There is also a pine cone, some berries and stamens and to finish off a couple of die cut branches (Sue Wilson).

The sentiment pulls out from the top of the card. I have embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and added two book marker tabs (Tonic) to to the top, tied some silver twine and added a couple of grey pearl gems.

The card stand has been cut from a  Joy Crafts die.

As mentioned above All Dressed Up are sponsoring us this month and the lucky winner will win two images of their choice.

That's all from me today.

Stay safe and well.

Thank you for popping in.
