lots of embossing

That's what I've done on my creation today. The challenge over at pti make itmonday  is to create wallpaper background designs. I had the (not so) bright idea of trying to create my background using glittered embossing powder. I used the stitched cross design stamp from the button boutique stamp set and the heart from the love lives here set to create my sentiment is also from the love lives here set ( my fave set) 
I'm still using my ipad to take pics , blog etc, and it's just not capturing all the sparkle :( I have used tiny silver stars on my background also, they look really pretty and sparkly.

I used tulle to create my bow for a really soft look.

Below pic more the real colour
I'd also like to enter this into Simon says stamp work it Wednesday challenge http://www.simonsaysstampblog.comwhich is blue.


 It's way more sparkly and a softer colour irl.

singing in the rain or anything goes

That's the challenge over at
Here is what I created for the challenge, I'm now too late for that challenge but as the next one is anything goes it's still ok :)
I stamped a gorjuss girl onto navy cs in a very pale ink (so as no lines would show) I then coloured the image with prisma pencils. It's the first time I've stamped and coloured an image on coloured cs, I do quite like the finished result. I've added glossy accents to the rain and her boots.

tag.....your it is the challenge that I'm joining in with today.
Here is my take on the challenge.
I don't normally create tags, but I enjoyed creating this one, and they are a great idea when I don't have so much time to spare.
The background was created using distress inks and a prima stamp. The leaves are pti stamp and die (sending you set) the SO is su stamp and the happy sentiment was die cut and I layered 3 together to make it stand out a little bit more.

pti make it Monday no lines watercolour

I decided to join in with this weeks make it Monday
The challenge this week is to do no lines water colour. I've never tried this before so decided to give it a try. I used the flower and leaves stamps from the sending you set and the sentiment is from (can't remember the name) small set with the dress form stamp lol. I stamped the image in antique linen and then water coloured the images using tim holtz distress ink using a water brush. I stamped onto Langton extra smooth card.
I quite like the finished result. I don't really have any large pti floral stamps as I would have liked to have a go with a larger flower too. I think I may even try and do a small canvas using this idea of the no lines stamping.
Have a great day folks :)

Back at last

I'm pleased to say that I'm back again, at last :) since the last time I blogged my laptop has broken :( I left it in the conservatory in the heat for a couple of weeks and then when I try and turn it on, nothing, the lights just flash :( need to get it sorted or at least try and retrieve all the data off the hard drive as it contains all my photos, years and years of them plus years n years worth of craft stuff, digi stamps, papers, kits u name it. So I'm now blogging from my ipad, also having to take pics on the ipad too. I do have an adapter for transferring camera pics to ipad but I can't find it anywhere, typical eh! So until I find it il just have to make do with the ipad camera.
I've joined in with this weeks case study challenge.
