Hello, Today's card is not only for a few challenges, but it is for my final project as guest designer at Creative Inspirations.:{ I have really enjoyed my time on the team, so thanks to Natalie for choosing me:} This weeks challenge is: ANYTHING WITH OPTIONAL SKETCH {which I chose not to use} Anyway onto my card. I used one of the new Sea Breeze Tilda's and the sea background from a few years ago onto a label 17, coloured with promarkers. I used the new Raspberry Road Beach Bliss paper by Lili of the valley, matted on kraft to give a sandy feel. I embellished it with flowers, gems, lace, from the ribbon girl, a sentiment and some shells. oh, and some cheesecloth.

Scrapbooking: Sleepin Pig

Image
Hello, It's been a while since I did any scrapbooking, or proper crafting really as I seem to have a massive block:{ But, I'm hoping I'm getting back to normal, being inspired by all the blogs I follow. So, this page I created using a sketch from this months Scrap365 sketch challenge. This page is called Sleepin Pig.
I used Studio calico Take Note papers, and mixed and matched them to give a country/homespun feel.
I added distress ink to each layer, created a frame with the wooden design paper, added my own little date tags, added buttons, hessian and my title, using some letters by doodlebug. I finished by adding my journaling to the bottom right, which says: "Every time we visit sewerby, this pig is asleep. This time, I managed to get a good photo" I'm really interested in your thoughts on my scrapbook pages, so go ahead and leave a comment! For more SMASH pages and scrap pages, click on the links.

Tilda Tile Card

Image
Hi, I'm back today with a different style for using my Tilda stamps. Normally, I'd just use the one stamp and make a card really fancy with pearls, flowers and everything else, but I found this sketch and thought I'd try something different. I created small square tiles and stamped the top half's of a few of my Tilda's , and coloured using spectrum noirs. Now I cant list all the pen's I've used because I used quite a few and I cant quite remember, im still pretty new to being a colourist and getting used to these pens:} I also added a simple sweet sentiment to the last tile. The spotty dotty paper is from first edition blank canvas, an everything is matted on kraft. This card is for: Spectrum Noir challenge: Friendship Tilda's Town: Anything Goes Marvelous Magnolia: Anything Goes
