Ribbons & Bows!

February 28th 2013

A fun new challenge at Wicked Wednesday this week with Dilly Beans as our sponsor! We want you to use ribbons & bows on your ATC - so lets see what you can do! I just love this gorgeous new image from Megan at Dilly Beans! She has been coloured with Copic Markers and I added strips of  ribbon and a bow!

Queen of Hearts Tag

February 25th 2013

Finally got my February tag made for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013! As I mentioned last time I don't always have al the "ingredients" specified so I have improvised and added my own style! Queen of Hearts image is from Angie Delarie Scrapbooking. Background is Distress Stains, I used a couple of embossing folders I had for the black card, a little hand stamp pointing to the "I love you" pendant and some japanese washi tape for the tie at the top.

And don't forget our "Anything but a Card" Challenge still has a week to go at The Cheerful Stamp Pad - lots of inspiration from the DT at the blog! and so much scope for wht you can create and enter as well!!


February 24th 2013

Finally finished my Febraury Calendar pages for The Kathryn Wheel Calendar Challenge. This month I used the credit card technique to cover the background with paint then did some sponging, stamping, doodling, added punchies for the days of the week. The gorgeous images are from Michelle Perkett Studio and were printed onto tissue paper then adhered to the pages with Mod Podge along with the "February" Word Art. I added some lacey border sticker to the top of each page. I'm really happy with how this month turned out!!! Now onto March LOL!!!

Love Potion No. 9

February 14th 2013

Happy Valentine's Day - although here the day is almost over! I am sharing one of my favourite Valentine's creations - a DT project I made for Angie Delarie Scrapbooking with one of her new designs. The gorgeous and vibrant patterned papers are from Gecko Galz and I thought they matched perfectly with the Copic Colours I used on the image. The little hearts and "tab" are also from Angie and are part of the set with the cute young lady! Of course as you can imagine the song "Love Potion No. 9" was going through my head when I made this!!! Had lots of fun sewing it all on with my sewing machine and even used a fancy heart stitch at the top!

Love Birds!

February 13th 2013

Here's a fun card I have made for the current Just Some Lines Challenge "Love" using this gorgeous group of birds - couldn't resist adding the "wobble" eyes for a laugh!! To layout the card I used the sketch from the challenge at 613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog. And I am also entering this at the Creepie Cute Stamps Challenge Blog - I don't have any of their images yet but plan to get hold of some asap LOL!!! Their challenge is My Creepy Valentine but it can be anything valentines and not necessarily creepy but I do think the wobble eyes I added make these old birds a bit creepy looking!!!

NEW Movie Magic Monthly Challenge Blog!

February 11th 2013

A brand new fun challenge blog starts today - Movie Magic Monthly!!!! This new challenge blog will have monthly challenges based on a movie - this is going to be great fun! Our very first challenge is of course "Alice in Wonderland" - now I can't see any excuses for not entering this - so many wonderful designs out there - and you can create whatever you like as long as it follows the movie theme!

My creation is a journal page as I've been having so much fun creating with paint, making backgrounds and generally getting messy!! I've used gorgeous & quirky "Alice" images from The Octopode Factory to create my own "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" - I'm a big tea drinker!!!

Make sure you check out the blog for amazing inspiration from our DT and get creating!!!

I'm also entering this page in the current The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge which requires the use of glitter and I added glitter paint to Alice & the Mad Hatter's Ties, the Mad Hatter's Hat and smeared some inside the painted circles - very hard to photograph though!!!

Love is in the Air!

February 10th 2013
