Tilda challenge card



Hi all,hope you are having a lovely weekend,i am having a bit of a crafting crisis at moment.....lol.have made 4 cards today and this is the only one i actually like!
made it for the tilda challenge over at docrafts which is hosted by the lovely jennie this time and you can find her fab blog here.
for the challenge we had to follow a recipe and include some glitz so i have used my new papermania hampstead papers which are lush and glittered,flowers from stash with added card candy and glitter,lace,pearl gems and i coloured my tilda image with my beloved promarkers and stamped the greeting which is always nerve racking in case it goes wrong...lol,have raised tilda up with 3d pads and added glitter with a sakura pen.

Well i need to go and tidy my desk now so thanks for taking the time to come and visit my blog,x

Tilda challenge card


Well i have made this card for a challenge over on docrafts for the lovely teresa and you can find her gorgeous cards on her blog here.
We had to use a tilda image and the theme was DLG - distress,layers and glitter and you can tell i went a bit mad with the glitter......lol
i coloured tilda with promarkers,used tim holtz distress ink and his new embossing folders
which i love.
papers are tim holtz which i recieved from a very lovely lady and distress ink was used on the edges,added a tim holtz tag and lots of stickles.

really enjoyed making this card and if you want to join the challenge pop over and have a look,have a good day all,x

Crafting with Angiebabe :)

Hi all,have had a busy crafty day today with angiebabe who i have met via docrafts and we have had fun doing lots of fab projects.We used some unusual craft tools......lol

Had fun altering some dominoes,drilled holes first then using distress inks made a background to stamp on and then cut to size,added ribbon and beads and glossy accents for that finishing touch.Mine are the ones on the right.

Then we had a play with chalks and oil pastels which gave a really subtle touch to our images,used versamark and chalk for outline and then coloured with the oil pastels.

And not last we made a canvas each which is very therapautic putting together,this is angies fab canvas

This is my canvas which i have made for my sister who will be 40 next week,just got to figure out how to post it!!

and yes sandra i have been a good girl and used my new die...lol
Well had a brilliant day but need to clear away now as i have made rather a mess,
