Just for fun!

I picked up these gorgeous Echo Park, Be Mine papers from Scottie Crafts on Friday and just had to use them right away! So, the bulging wedding album has just grown by another page!

I love Tim Holtz little filmstrip, so printed a whole bunch of thumbnail photos to stick behind it. The title is cut from the Martha Stewart Elegant cake cricut cartridge and the frame from the Wild Card cartridge. Added some lace, a wedding fabric bow and lots of stickles! Gotta hope Prima keep bringing out those gorgeous floral stems!
I'm going to post this in Deb's Creations Feb LO Challenge - New Beginnings
Have a great day,

Southern Girls Challenge - Emboss it!

Head over to Southern Girls Challenge and check out the great projects the DT have done for this fortnights theme ... Emboss it! And ...then... whip up your own project and enter the draw for some great prizes from Digital Delights, and Scrapbook Dreams!

This is my first real attempt at colouring a digital stamp. I have really been wanting to try a little colouring after seeing what amazing cards the other DT girls do. So much fun!!
The flesh colours are so hard to find in inks, so I HAD to buy some copic markers to do the job!!
The rest of my colouring has been done mainly with Brilliance and Ranger Distress ink pads and a blending brush. This cute image is from one of our sponsors, this month, Digital Delights.

The frame is a cricut cut - Wild card cartridge.  The embossed label shape is rubbed with TH distress, clear embossing powder and then Gesso.
Kinda chuffed with it really!

Bird's of a feather challenge

Carol and Sonya over at Bird's of a Feather have posted a sketch challenge. This is my take on the sketch. Pop over, have a look and join in the fun!
Part of the challenge was to use a punch, a stamp and chipboard. I have used a Martha Stewart punch and stamped a Tim Holtz ticket stamp on chipboard. The circle journalling spot is also stamped.
I love these  My Mind's Eye, The Lost and Found  papers, which I got from Scottie Crafts. Scottie Craft's also has the TH stamps and a great selection of Martha Stewart punches. Go check them out here!

Elspeth's challenge

At our last craft group get-together, Elspeth set the challenge, giving us a mini canvas and easel to play with! While I had the product out, doing Xmas boxes and cards, I decided to go with a similar theme.
I modge-podged a silver patterened tissue to the canvas, made a frame with texture paste, paint and glitters and then added the image, bling, a punched and glittered snowflake. I painted the easel with TH crackle paint and added the bows.

Happy 2011 everyone! x
