Shades Of Blue first for Brown Sugar

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers *waves*
Here is my DT card for the Brown Sugar Challenge blog and the theme this time is Shades of blue and we have two sponsors this time round and they are Delicious Doodles and Sassy Studio Designs
They both have some amazing stamps so do pop on over and take a look.

I have created ATC's for this challenge and am becoming quite addicted to them.
For my first one I have used Steampunk Mermaid by Delicious Doodles
I created 2 of the mermaids so I could paper piece them.
I have used blue and aqua pencils to colour the sea and the mermaids skin.
Grey and black for the rock and black and blue for her hair.
The sand back ground I used some sandpaper borrowed from the hubsters tool box lol
I then used a sentiment that came free on a magazine.

Shades of blue 2nd for Brown Sugar

My second ATC is using Cinderella Pinup from the Make A Wish Collection by Sassy Studio Designs
I printed off 3 images and shaded using colour pencils then paper pieced using foam pads for dimension.
Matted holographic card and a pretty blue designer paper from a Posy paper pack.
Punched flowers and a butterfly from the same paper and added some 4mm blue pearls.
Didn't have a stamp for the sentiment so added it using a black fine liner pencil.

Storage Drawers and GDT Inspiration

Good Morning wonderful people.
I was lucky enough to win the GDT spot in a challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge blog and had to choose a stamp to use.
Boy was that a hard decision to make.
So many beautiful stamps to choose from and you wouldn't believe how hard a choice that is when you have the option of any stamp you want.
I finally narrowed it down to a pretty little fairy stamp called 'Fairy Happy' by Tiddly Ink's
Such beautiful stamps to create with and super clingy which is great because I have clingy stamps that don't cling very well and slip while I am stamping. Not so with the Tiddly Ink's stamps. Even have to pull quite hard to get them back off the acrylic block lol
I wanted to create something other than a card for my GDT debut at Bunny Zoe's so I decided to create a little storage set with the intention of giving it to my Mother-in-law for her vanity desk.
There are 4 drawers in either side for jewellery and such.
My MIL LOVES lace and all things pink and frilly so it's perfect for her.
However, now it is actually finished and I have used my love of faeries, butterflies and pink it looks so pretty sat on my desk so not sure if I will give it away or not.
It also of course has my favourite embellies on whuch are Lace, Pearls and Flowers.
They always give just the right amount of elegance and femininity.
Knowing me i'll make a replica so we can both have one ROFL
The dies I have used in this project are all available at Bunny Zoe's and created by Marianne Designs and are Anja's Vintage Decoration LR0269, Double frame LR0141, Ribbon floral 3 LR0110 and I have also used Butterflies LR0158
I hope you like it as much as I do and thank you for looking :)

My favourite things

Good afternoon.
Late post today as \i have been in the garden reading and watching the wildlife.
Yeah yeah I know, I lead such a hard life LOL
The weather is just stunning at the moment albeit a little on the warm side but I am certainly not going to grumble after the cruddy weather at the end of the week.
Set to be a scorcher tomorrow which is a good thing as it's my birthday tomorrow and the boys are hoping to throw a barbecue.
Will be interesting to see them doing all the preparation and cooking LOL

Today I have created a wall hanging of my favourite things for the challenge at Allsorts
I started it with the intention of creating a card but changed my mind and decided to turn it into a small hanging picture for my desk by added a ribbon hanging on the back.
In case you couldn't tell my favourite things are faeries, butterflies, pearls and pink.
A girl can never have too much of these and who doesn't like the feminine touch :)
The dies for the butterfly and leaf sprigs are by Marianne Designs, the flowers are from a bunch I got from Poundland and have taken apart.
The faerie stamp is Faerie Poppets 'Baby Rosebud' by Christine Haworth and come with various sentiments and borders.
Thank you for looking.

Atc Teabagging

Good evening all.
I hope you have had better weather than I have.
It has been pouring down most of the day.
Shouldn't complain because the garden loves it.

I am back this evening with an ATC I have created for the Pan pastels challenge blog.
This week we have to follow a sketch.
Hard enough on a larger card let alone an ATC.
Thought i'd make it even harder for myself and include some teabag folding.
Not sure i'll try it again in a hurry as the squares had to be teeny tiny LOL
Sorry for the poor pics, the light is fading and the flash is to bright.
Enjoy your evening everyone and thank you for looking :)
