Morning all & I'd just like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who has visited my blog since I have returned to it last week, after being away & more through circumstance than choice...it feels sooooo good to be back! I came down this morning & had 10 cool unmoderated comments & am now on a high! Yeah I think I've defo got back the blogging bug again!...
...Today I have a pretty LOTV card for you in one of my fave colour combos pink, blue & green & a shabby, distressed style which I'm really feeling right now! I haven't entered the LOTV challenge in a long while & really wanted to start entering again, they have a great Bingo challenge there at the mo - defo worth checking out, it has loads of scope...
...I have achieved the look by sewwing round the paper edges, then inking with Walnut Satin DI, distressing with a craft knife, then adding white paint. Here's a closer look...
...The stunning papers are the same collection as yesterdays post, they are by 'Kaisercraft' and are called 'Bonjour' LOVE them! I'm mega pleased with the chipboard swirl which I think is a Tando Creative piece. I've painted with a pearlescent white acrylic paint, then finished with Crackle Paint...
...This is one of my all time favourite LOTV stamps (which you'll be seeing a lot more of btw as I've just ordered quite a few new ones!) anyhow this one is 'Fairies on Tiptoe' & she's just so pretty in these muted colours. I have painted with Distress Inks & highlighted with 'Crystal' & 'Bubblegum' Stickles...
...Flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts, they have been distressed with white paint, then glittered with 'Crystal' Stickles, which I've massaged in with my fingers for an even spread...
...The lovely tag above is from the Kaisercraft paper pad, which comes in 6 1/2" square size with die cuts - how cool? I've never come across another brand that puts die cuts in a small paper pad & think its a really great idea! I've spelled the sentiment out in Prima 'Pixie Glen' mini alphas, then added a button distressed with white paint & tied with twine....
..I've distressed the ends of the bow then added some Stickles for sparkle! - Notice the cute little dragonfly charm from Bunny Zoe's crafts, which defo has the best selection of these kinds of charms that I've ever come across anyway. Here's a sneaky peak at the inside...
I'd like to enter into the following challenges:
