B is for black

Hello it's Friday yayyy
Today's card is commissioned by my daughter 
Can you make me a card for Dan 
Her boyfriend 
As usual I left it till the last minute
I really wasn't feeling it at all 
Till I got into it and I really enjoyed making it 
And was pretty pleased with the results 
It's trick for a 19 year old
He's a proper lad 
But there quite loved up and soppy bless 
So I went with the love theme 
But choose blacks n greys as the main colours
I used my docrafts Wellington cd 
They are pretty fab because of there design features
I am pants on computer but find these really easy

So I designed a backing paper with there names on 
And lots of love u & i❤️ U on

I also made a little topper on the same theme 
I cut it with the tonic affections die 
Washi tape and othere papers roses etc trimcrafts 
A monochrome collection from the range

They both loved the card
The theme is something beginning with b
I know it's a little twist so I hope it counts
I love my CDs 
They give you so versatile 
The only way to get such a personal card

Distress crayons

Hello and welcome 

Today I've been playing with distress crayon 
I made the back ground with a water brush
I took the colour direct from the crayon 
And also added some direct to the paper
and blended with my finger
I stamped with memento ink,Paris dusk 
Using darkroom door essentials 1 collection of stamps

I coloured directly on the butterfly's
Then stamped them again coloured and cut them out
I then shaped them and added them over the stamped one
To give some dimension
I finished off with icicle stickles
And a sentiment cut on scan n cut
Which I cut twice to drop shadow


Happy crafting

I'm back

Hello all 

Sorry I've been absent 
So much has happened 
My son has gone to a car show 
In Austria and broken down 
So stressful how people cope
with there kids over seas I do not know 
At first we were confident as he had European break down cover 
But true to form there quoting small print 
I hope it will all work out 
I also had a birthday 
I did get well and truly pampered 
And got shoe shoe and more shoes 
Plus a paper kit 
Hunkydory collage a card kit 
So this is a card I made from the kit 
Hope you like it there real fun cards 

Happy crafting

It's may & it's freezing


Happy bank holiday Monday 
Well it's overcast windy and cold 
 I'm now getting flip flop withdrawal 
Come on weather we need warming up 
Sharing a little card today

I've coloured with chameleon pens 
And added a few tonic pearl drops 
Enjoy you bank holiday Monday
