Just Fishing.

Thought I'd share the card I made for my fishing loving brother-in-law. I created the card blank using my ScanNcut, cutting another of the shape in silver card which I then inked, stenciled and scored to hopefully make it represent a rainbow trout.  




I attacked my feather duster and used some wire and a paperclip to make my "fly" using some recycled silver thread for the "line" and then inked over a googly eye to make it look a more realistic colour.





I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Bloggers, Fly (Play on words),
Allsorts, recycle,(silver thread saved from gift wrapping)
SCT93, Special Occasion,
SPC12, Anything goes.

Flowers with Southern Girls.


It's time for a new challenge with the Southern Girls today and we have another nice easy one for you.




I didn't have chance to use the sponsors image today but there are some great sponsors this time, please check out the challenge blog for full details.
I used my Scan and cut to make my card, shaping and welding together petal shapes to make the shape then cutting out individual petals and inky stitching each one by hand the leaf and stem image is a built in shape. I shaped each petal with a ball tool and used glue and foam pads to place each one. The centre of my daisy was cut from felt with a nestability circle. The sentiment was also created using the draw option before sizing the tag, angling and cutting it.




I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
TIOT, Flowers,
IDCB48, Anything goes,
CGC3, Anything goes,
CWAA6, Anything goes.

Good morning, does anyone know where July disappeared to? I'm sure it must be to do with my age but goodness the months just fly by!

So, I thought I'd use one of the gorgeous Lavinia dies make a pretty box, it's the perfect size to fit a gift into.




I've actually done step by step instructions for this one and you will soon be able to see it on the Lavinia website.

Is This Mixed Media?


Hi there, I've been a bit busy so haven't had time to post lately, thought it was about time I shared a card that I made a few weeks ago for my lovely Sister-in-law's special birthday. Something a bit different from my normal card style but oh how I enjoyed using paints, gesso, stamping and inking,adding some brushos and generally loosing myself .


I used a selection of Lavinia stamps, cutting the wings from a butterfly and adding them to my hand cut heart. I even used a doiley, I thought I was allergic to them lol, they've been sat in a box for ages. Have to say I was rather pleased with the results. Chapter 50 was cut from a damaged book that I've had in my craft drawer for ages, it's been a while since I snipped from the damaged pages. 



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

Fantastic Tues., Anything goes with lace,
Papertake, Don't be square,
TT253 Tic,tac,toe, (stamp.twine,sequins),
DVC110, Distressing,
The Craft Place, Mixed media,
