Digital Vintage Violet

Hi All,

I was hoping to have a lovely selection of cards to share with you today, as I had planned some crafting time yesterday ... however none got done, I started attacking my scraps instead ... I will post some photos at a later date! However my loft is still covered in paper, and by poor big shot is having a well deserved rest, as I was die cutting for Britain yesterday!!

Anyhoo ... onto this card, This is another Serif Creation!! So it is all Flat, apart from the little flowers which have been decoupaged, and I coloured the image (one of my Fav's) with my copics.

This is my entry for:

Saturated Canary - Bright and Beautiful
Pennys Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

As Always Thanks for looking

Spring Time in Paris

Hello All,

Well we have had a busy week, been building a shed, all ready to move the contents of our garage into it so we can knock down the garage if and when our planning comes through for our extension. Not had much time for crafting this week, so this card is from my last escape into the loft.

Still on My Scrap mission, so this is yet another card that has come from my scrap bag .... I even found a scrap that I had sprayed with Mica powder, and stitched, which blended in beautifully with the card I was making. most handy!!!!

This card has a bit of everything on it ... the background card has been stamped with a papermania stamp, and I added a little colour using my whisper pens. I totally fell in love with the new "Paris in Spring" stamp from "Stampendous" .... so it fell into my basket whilst watching C&C the other week, I have stamped it out on the blue paper, and paper pieced the flowers. I have collaged various papers from my mahoosive scrap collection. The image is a topper from the "dovecraft - lets party"range .... finally I added some frantage .. ( My latest obsession!!) and a few embellies, and this is the finished result.

This is my entry for:

Totally Gorjuss - Embossing ( I have gone for the heat embossing option, with my beloved frantage!!)

Garden Treaure

Hello All,

I got to play in the loft again!! Whoop Whoop!!

Once again I am attacking the scrap pile ... I honestly think I will be doing that for the rest of my life. I have been so good and have been diligently working away at them for months, and as yet there is no visible dent!

I coloured up this fabulous Saturated Canary image, and I have used copics and prisma's .... I also played with my new favorite toy, a couple of franntage sets that fell in my basket the other day! Everything has been distressed with "Aged Mahogany - distress ink"  I have added a few bits of washi tape too, and then rubbed some gesso on various places.

Rain on your Parade

Hello All,

Sorry, I have been missing for a while again, just as I was becoming regular and reliable!! Pressures from work, baby with bugs ... it has left little time for crafting and blogging!!

 I saw this sentiment on pinterest "If someone tries to rain on your parade, poke them with your umbrella" and thought it was hilarious!! As soon as I saw it I immediately thought of this Saturated Canary image. As I have not had much chance to play, all crafting that I have managed to fit in has been using Serif ... so again this has all been done on the computer, I also have a matching insert, I have printed it off coloured the image with my copics, and printed a couple of the elements a few times to create decoupage elements

 Have to say I am really enjoying this hybrid crafting!

Thanks for Looking
Hugs to all
