Tilda & Friend Weekly ACT Challenge - Black Grey & White

Hi...This is my entry for this week Tilda & Friends ATC weekly Challenge. Now this is not new for me as I used to make loads of these little works of art, but I just have not showed them on here. When I saw the colour scheme this week I just had to have a go and being Lilypuss Card it had to be The Cat.. lol.. as the leaves give it an Jungle feel I did a bit of doodling too!. The DP is Doodlebug and I finished with small punched flowers and Craftworks Card Candy. Do go and check out the DT's ATC's here they are so cute!!!

Bizzy Becs Creatalicious DT Challenge

Hi...The new monthly challenge, Bizzy Becs Creatalicious has a DT challenge so I thought I would have a go. Its a great sketch so why not check it out here and they have some super Candy up for grabs too!!!

I used my brand new Gorjuss girl for this, isnt she cute? the DP's are Papermania Exquiste which are available at DoCrafts here I added organza ribbon with a sweet little pearl buckle from stash and to the punched flowers I added beautiful slik flowers with pearl stemens from Hobbycraft. I sparkled her wings and the pearl stickers finshed the look. Wish me luck!!!


Allsorts Challenge Week 11 - Dawny P's Sketch with Marshmallows & Chocolate

Hi again...this is my entry for this weeks Allsorts Challenge. Not only a great sketch from Dawny P but the theme is yummy marshmellow and chocolate. The Tilda I used is a Christmas one but she is so cute I hid the holly in her hair with a flower. I coloured her with Prismas but after I put it all together I wanted to give her a shimmery look so I gave Tilda and the flowers a quick wash with H2O's and I'm very pleased how it turned out. The DP's are K Co. Do go and check out the DT's cards here they are devine as usual!!

Just Magnolia Challenge Week 15 -Sketch by Tab

Hi Guys...well I'm back with me mojo working now...I think what got it going was this fab sketch by Tab over at Just Magnolia...being a great fan of Tabs gorgeous designs I just had to have a go.

I coloured the Tilda cutie with Prismas and the DP's are K & Co. I added raffia for a change with punched and paper flowers. The sentiment is from Clare Curd Signature Range over at DoCrafts here I found the cute little buttons in my stash and added a little glitter.

Do go and check out the DT cards here they are truly fab.

I'll be back in a little while with more..
Have Fun!!!

Just Magnolia Tutorial Challenge - Distressing

Now as you all know as I have mentioned it before...I dont 'do' Distressing. I find it all too distressing to distress beautiful papers. But as this is a brand new challenge I bit the bullet and got out my one and only distress ink pad and off I went. I used K & Co DP's and rubbed (ouch) the ink around the edges and then roughed up with me scissors (oooo oooo). I coloured sweet Tilda with Prismas pencils and sansodor and then distressed the edges (oh oh oh). Added a bit of old lace..dont know where that came from..prob from an old pair of drawers!!! lol. Now here's the tricky bit, thought I would be really clever and have a go at stitching. Ummmmm 2 hours of expletives later still no stitching.. but lots of holes where the needle has been and lots of cotton on the floor..does this count as distressing?
Do check out the DT cards here to see how it should be done.
Happy Crafting..I'm off for a stiff drink to recover!!!
