You don't need Therapy




Hello,  It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is  'You've Got a Friend'  you can interpret this as you will - real/imaginary or animal, it's up to you.

I've used a photo from the internet, these friends look as if they're having such fun.  I used a few vintage layers,   some wildflowers and a computer generated sentiment.

The rest of the design team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.

Do What you Love

Hello, I've not had much inspiration or time in the craft room lately, but as I've got four 'girly' birthdays this month, it's given me the push to get my act together and get organised.  As a little incentive to get  motivated, I bought this Dancing Woman stamp from Rubber Dance and she's been well inked this last week.

The card base had already been embossed with crackle paste through the Flourish stencil and was in the 'bits box' so I dipped it in Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Antique Linen DOX.  I used Brushed Pewter Distress paint and my trusty finger over the embossed cracks - which gave it a look of Mother of Pearl!  The stamped panel was a mop up piece, again in the bits box, that must have mopped up some Brushed Pewter stain along the way as it has a lovely sheen,  I used Worn Lipstick DI to emphasise her dress and Wilted Violet to the flowers.  The sentiment is computer.  I used a dull silver card to mat.

I am entering this at:
  Rubber Dance Forever Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes
  Rubber Dance - September colour challenge
 
 Challenge 1.-14. Sept.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully I'll get caught up on blog visiting over the weekend.

Show us Some Stitching at TioT


Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight  it's 'Stitch It'  and as usual it's up to you what you make as long as there's some stitching - real or faux.

I haven't used my Dress form die for a long time, so this was a great opportunity.  I cut 2 from white card, stained the base and top of one with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, the other was trimmed to leave just the body, to which I glued some printed linen and trimmed to shape.

The DP was trimmed and pieced and I machine stitched the border, I used a Rose stencil with DIs and then stamped and clear embossed the G 45 and Tim Holtz words.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Have a great day,

Avril xx
