Something Old Vintage card


Good Morning :)
I have a card to share today
The card is for this weeks C4E Recipe challenge.


My card came together quite quick! I used papers from My Minds Eye Pretty Things 6x6 pad, distress all the edges with scissors then inking them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added some gold Inka Gold to finish them off.
You can get your hands on a Pretty Things Grab bag HERE it includes the 6x6 paper pad and gorgeous Washi tape!


I then grabbed my flower and mixed media stash boxes to make the center piece of the card.


The main rose is fairly new, but the two small roses are old. 


I found some gold stamens at the bottom of the box I had forgotten about and added them into the arrangement along with some old buttons, wire and jump rings.


There are some punched leaves, beads and canvas flowers in there too!


Finally I gave the whole card a spritz of gold Tattered Angels and pink Perfect Pearls mists.
Then a sprinkle of Gold paint followed by some Gesso.


 hope the sun is shining where you are have a great day
Thanks for stopping by

Daisy Mixed Media Layout


Good Morning :)
I have a layout to share today.


I have used the sketch from this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge to make a mixed media layout with some paper scraps and chipboard arrows.


The photo is one of my lovely cats, Daisy.


I started off by adding modelling paste through a Crafters Workshop Punchinella stencil, then added some pieces of plasterboard tape to a 12x12" piece of white Bazzill cardstock.
The whole piece was given a coat of Gesso when it was dry.
I then added several shades of brown watercolour paints with plenty of water so that it pooled in the lovely texture. I added a little black watercolour for depth.


I added a sprinkle of Walnut Brown 3D-Stempel-Farbe (3D stamp-paint) from Viva Decor. This is new paint to me and I am experimenting with it. It has a lovely sparkle to it and has a nice consistency. I wasn't impressed with the white when I tried stamping with it :( More play is needed lol!



I didn't add much more to the layout, the DPs are a mix of Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket, all scraps.



The chipboard arrows are the negative pieces from Tim Holtz's Chevron die, coloured with Brown Gold Inka Gold. Inka Gold is another new product I am playing with, I am loving it! Gorgeous creamy texture which can be rubbed on without first painting Gesso on the chipboard! Real time saver :)


That's all from me today :)

Footy Bookmark


Good Morning :)
I am busy getting ready for the first Crafts 4 Eternity 12 hour crop at the moment but I managed to squeeze in a quick DT project for this weeks C4E recipe challenge.
All the challenge detail, entry and DT inspiration can be found HERE.


My project this week is a bookmark for my eldest son. I caught him turning down the corners of a book he was reading naughty boy! So I made him a little bookmark to use instead.


I made the bookmark at the same time as making the Now and Then Mini album for one of Sunday's workshops so it matches perfectly lol!
I used a scrap of cardstock, added some modelling paste through a stencil, then painted it with Gesso before adding Blue acrylic paint.
The background was completed with some splats of red Dylusions ink and silver Maya gold paint then added some Gesso circles using a bottle top.


My son is a big football fan so this Kenny K image was perfect.
He is coloured with Copics.

All that remains is for me to say ...
Hop over HERE to see all the gorgeous DT inspiration and enter this week challenge :)
