Siren Of The Sea

Isn't She Cute? This is a digi download from "Make it Crafty" ..If you prefer the rubber version, it can be found HERE.
This stamp has been printed onto water colour printer paper ( I LOVE it!) and painted with water colours and H2O's.

I do urge you to pop over to the Make It Crafty Store though if you like digi's as they have a massive 40% off their Digi stamps till 28th be quick. They also have lots of competitions to celebrate one year of trading - link in my side bar.

Wanted to paint her . Another of my stamps from Jean. I have to wait to do the other as I have run out of sticky mount.

Liquid pearls and stickles and Lili of The valley Sentiment stamp ( my FAV)

in a Sweet Pea Dream Challenge

This time is "Lace"..I KNOW I have some black lace somewhere..but can I find it!! So Instead I painted some sticky K and Co lace ribbon black..first with a sharpie but it wasn't black enough, so I used trusty "stazon" . Also used a nestie die for the lacy corners. This is one of my three new Sweet Pea stamps from Jean ( who had an offer on 3 for 2)

Close up of the painting. I bought some enormous sheets of water colour card for Megan's art exam and am using the left overs cut up. I have enough for quite some time!!

Ann's Class

Not great photos I am afraid. It's a bit dark now . I really enjoyed this fun class and will probably do it again.

The Gorgeous owl images are downloaded from THIS fabby etsy shop. I printed them onto a cream card and have added glossy accents and stickles ( of course!!).
That's the last for now from the cyber crop , although I have saved all the PDF files ( these can be found on the shop's web site) so may "play" later on.

Dawn's Layout

I have to admit that I wasn't sure about this at first ... definitely not my usual style. Too many patterns and not much "white" space. This was the last Cyber crop class at the weekend from ATDML blog

Once I got going, I really enjoyed myself and liked that everything was not "perfect"

I will definitely use this way to journal again..such fun and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Thanks Dawn!

Still cyber cropping

This is Karen's Layout . You can still download the instructions and take part HERE.
This was done for my sister and her Gorgeous Family :)

I loved making the flowers ( although I have a way to go to master those swirly, twisty ones!)

Although I didn't use the same papers, it was fun using these papers in a different way to my usual style..I quite like it..Thanks Karen !

ATDML Cyber Crop - Karen's mini book

I Loved making this . I used lots of papers that came free in a magazine and old stickers/rub ons etc.
I haven't added photos yet , or even decided on the theme - just the colours.

I used my spellbinder dies for quite a few of the little accents.

I shall look forward to filling it up .

Happy Father's day

Made a quick card for the kids to give to Derek..Nats always either buys or makes her own. Megan has been in her room all day yesterday trying to create something digitally ..not sure it has I am keeping out of her way ..Its something to do with "The Hangover" film.

Anyway, this was made using a digi image, painting it and then covering with glossy accents and gold stickles.

I am VERY naughty and my poor niece only got this card yesterday!! It was her Birthday last month!! The digi stamp was downloaded from HERE and is one of the Emerald fairies collection.

Again, paints, sickles and glossy accents :) The paper was from a pad "Spring Feast" 8 x 8 bought in the Range.

Cyber crop Challenge 2

To use material on a layout or card. The swirl and flower are material that has been bonded onto card and then cut with the Big shot.

I have used my new sentiment stamps from Lili of the valley. I have a few "sorry you are leaving" cards to make as there are a few members of staff retiring at school at the end of term.

I still need to pinch myself that I am on the DT LOL

I printed out some "woody" papers but I can't remember where from..I WILL pop a link up when I do remember. I Love the Lili of the valley sentiment stamps ( another set accidently fell though my letter box this morning).

ATDML Cyber Crop

All the details of the crop can be found on the Blog Here. I really enjoyed doing this layout. Its the first I have done for AGES!!

I didn't have the kit so used the papers that I did have. I DID have the fancy pants Glee paper ( it has DOTs on it - say no more!). I mostly used My Minds Eye -Stella and Rose papers and lots of odd bits that I have had for years. Like rub on's.

And Vellum Quotes.

This was an interactive Layout by Mel and here it is open. A tribute to Derek for father's day tomorrow - so timely!

One of the challenges was to make/decorate some tags. Mine is on my layout but i enjoyed this so much I will probably do some more..while rummaging, I found a load of chipboard Bo Bunny tags so I have lots more :D

Right.. brekki and then I shall pop over to the blog to see what else is up .

I have used a digi stamp from Make it Crafty called Vixie and found HERE . Isn't she cute?

I have printed her and painted with twinkling H2O's and water colours..not easy with printer ink! And , of course, lots and lots of stickles glitter glue.

Chicken Soup and Sweet Pea

Over at sweet Pea Stampers , the latest challenge is to do monochromatic. The Challenge is HERE go look.
I inked up my latest purchase and here she is. Once again, I have used water colour pencils, H2O's and some liquid pearls. I ALWAYS have a little stickles glitter glue on everything I do ( where ever possible ;))

The Layout is for Chicken Soup No 43, the last I did for my Guest spot on the Blog. The recipe is HERE along with the image for recipe 44, which is Beautiful and chosen by my sister Nets . I do hope I get chance to play along this week.
For some reason Blogger wont let me post below the Layout image , so I'll sign out here for now.

Twisted card sketch NO 062

My first twisted card as a member of the DT. The sketch and twist can be found HERE

I have vowed NOT to buy any more P Paper until I have used up quite a bit of the mountain that I have. One of the great things about double sided paper is, if you don't like the pattern , or it doesn't fit, there is often a plain side :) . I have used old Basic grey and some vintage paper mania ( one of the first sheets i bought..years ago!)

My Twisted Card DT Entry

I stamped and used clear embossing powder for the background and then used distress inks in sugary colours over the top. I made a frame from Nesties for the stamped image.

I do love this stamp..I really am a stampaholic!!!
