Chicken Soup 39 And SweetPea Challenge

The Chicken Soup challenge is HERE . The Sweet pea Stampers Recycle Challenge is HERE.

The glittery mount behind the main image is made from two prima packaging cards, painted and then glittered with antique glass glitter . I also used the left over bits of card to make the bunting.
The boarder under the fairy is an old bazzil edger boarder that has been inked and embossed . I also sprinkled more purple embossing powder overt it for a random effect.

Twisted Sketch 97

The sketch can be found HERE . I am a little late with it. This is for last week. The twist was MEDIUM.
I used a pattern builder and a prima mask to create a 3D resist pattern. I then used distress inks to bring it to life. With a tiny bit of stickles glitter glue on the leaves.

I also used up some old Bo bunny white chip board flowers buy painting them and then inking them....Oh and I stitched along two sides.
I WAS going to say sorry about the streaks of sunlight on the photos ..but I am not. I LOVE that the sun is shining :D

Stampman Resist challenge

I really enjoyed doing this, some of my favourite techniques! I used clear embossing powder and basic grey stamps on some white card. I then used distress inks to rub over the embossed images , cut them up and mounted onto black card for background.

The main stamp is another Sweet pea.

Chicken Soup No 38

The recipe is HERE . This is also the pencil lines sketch for this week (number 235) HERE. I love this photo of Megan taken at Praa Sands in Cornwall a few years ago.
I dug out some stamps for the title..can you remember when these were the latest "must have"?

The shells are some coloured in digital stamps From Sarah Hurley Designs. The frill is pieces of paper doily cut up and folded.

Tim Holtz dies again :)

I am so sad that the holiday is almost over, I am back to school tomorrow but at least we have a long weekend ahead before the manic Summer term takes hold.

Chicken Soup No 37

The recipe is HERE. I used the gold and circles as my inspiration. I have had theses bazzill chipboard flowers for AGES. I used the left over piece for my card. I still have the flower to use somewhere else.

One of Martha's punched butterflies, backed with paper gives it a bit more strength.

100's ( well no..45 actually) punched mini flowers around the edge.

The sun is shining here today and i need to weed( read FIND) the patio!!

Red Fairy

The Easiest bit was the painting. I always mess up on where to put the sentiment and how to add it. I perfer stamped sentiments but dont always leave room on the card for them!

I do love this stamp. You may well see her again soon.

Sweet Pea Stamps

I love these stamps..I know they have been around for a little while. I just thought they looked a little intimidating to colour. This was done (as always) with water colour pencils and a little stickles and liquid pearls to highlight. I am not brave enough to use pens, apart from the cost of them, they seem scary to use.

This was made for one of daughter friends..they are all 16 this year ( seems like most of them are this month too!).
I have also painted her in red , just need to make the card up ( after a quick taxi service for dort!).
I bought my stamps from these two stores: 3D Jean and Crafts and Me . IF you can't wait..who can!! Jean has a faster delivery service and Crafts and me also do something similar in Digi stamps.

Chicken Soup No 35

The recipe is HERE . I used the gold edging as my inspiration, along with those bright colours.

I couldn't find any thin gold card or paper ( I am SURE I have some, somewhere!) so, I gold embossed the edge of some white card to back the nestie cuts.
