Clean & Simple

Hi peeps, this card I have made for Flutterby Wednesday Challenge for this week which is clean and simple.  I have used black dotty card and made and layered using the Glitter Girls embossing board for the unusual shape.  I have used peel offs to decorate around the shape and some beautiful silver, white and glittered paper for the centre and off course added a couple of black and white butterflies.  I love the monochrome effect.  TTFN

This is what's on my desk this morning, I have spent the last 2 days paint fusioning all sorts of items.  The one with the pink flowers on it going to become a clock when it is finished and I will be painting the box which I am in the process of distressing with roses in lilac, I love purple :).  Well must get on and get some work done before I can get back to my fusioning session.  Happy Wednesday Everyone xx

One for the Girls

I have stamped image from the SWALK collection by Crafter's Companion, just love these stamps. The saying seemed appropriate for one for the girls and reads "take a little time out for yourself" and what girl doesn't enjoy a nice bubble bath!!!! I have highlighted the bubbles with 3D clear glaze which looks brilliant.  I have randomly stamped bubbles on the out mat and dusted over them with cosmic powders.  I am entering this into the Diva's by Design challenge.

Creations by Gill

I have entered this card into Creations by Gill's blog challenge.  The backing paper is printed off Crafter's Companion's flower fairies roses onto pearlised paper.  Used Martha Stewart butterfly punch to make the border and added ribbon down the centre.  Around the circled toppers I have used ribbon in the shape of petals in pale pink.  Decoupaged using dufex flower fairy, added buttons and a deeper pink rose.


This is my first ever participation into WOYWW.  I am in the process of preparing for Gill McCall's blog challenge, also another first time.  As you can see the theme is Pink & Purple with buttons. I love fairies and thought the colour lended to a fairy topper.

Second Attempt

I love alstroemeria's they come in lots of lovely colours and look lovely in the garden.

Paint Fusion "Flying Solo"

First attempt at using paint fusion without the stamps.  Lupin's I love them especially when driving on the motorway and they are in full bloom along the embankments.

Cupboard Door's

I have now placed the doors to my storage cupboard back in their rightful place.  They look really nice and are lovely to look at.  A lot of hard work but well worth it.

Marathon Day Paint Fusioning

I have spent the day Paint fusioning my cupboard doors all four of them into a garden scene.  I am really chuffed to bits with how it has turned out.  I have paint fusioned the berries, sweet peas and then added the butterflies.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE paint fusion.  I would almost say I was an addict :)

Divas by Design

I just love sweet peas and I have stamped these onto mount board after distressing it.  I have paint fusioned the sweet peas and leaves and embossed the swirls.  I have used silk art card and pink mirri card with swirls embossed for the matting and layering.  I have entered this into Divas by Design Challenge.

Papertake Weekly Challenge

I have entered this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge.
I have painted the poppies using Paint Fusion on round mountboard and mat and layered this onto
black circle with a lovely curved square die (can't remember the name of this) on red mirri card with gold swirls.  Had to add a buzzing bee and gems and a lovely black swirl to reflect the swirls on the card.

By the Cute & Girly Challenge

This card is made by using spellbinder scalloped circle and circle dies.  I have paint fusioned the dog roses and butterfly and sprayed it with spray and sparkle irridescent.  I added the feather's to compliment the lilac scalloped circle.  I have entered this into the By the Cute & Girly Challenge for this month

Crafter's Companion Challenge 12

I have made this card using Centura white pearlescent card and scored down the left hand side to give it the appearance of a book.  I used Spellbinder's scalloped circle and cirle dies.  I decoupaged the flower fairies and added two silver butterfly peel offs to pearlescent card.  The swirl I embossed with WOW silver powder and then added the paper flowers and leaves.  I am entering this into Crafter's Companion Callenge 12.
