Recycled Michael Powell

Hello

I hope you are having a wonderful Bank Holiday.  The sun is shining, which apparently lots of people like, I don’t but hey ho it does mean I get to hide away to craft instead.

I would love to share this picture, particularly as my Mum saw it and I think she is going to “acquire” it very soon.

I love this sort of project that starts out as something of nothing and turns into something quite special.

I was playing with a box of recycled cardboard and acrylic paints and made some backgrounds.

I love this Michael Powell stamp.  It is so relaxing to just sit after a hard days work and colour it in using my favourite medium ….. coloured pencils.  I love the simplicity!

I cut a few diecuts to co-ordinate with the background and positioned them behind my coloured topper, which I also matted onto another background, to make it stand out.

Lastly I cut some diecut flowers and positioned on opposite corners.

Mum has requested that it be placed in a box frame for her birthday.  I consider myself told!

Hope you like it.

TTFN.

Butterfly Dance

Hello

Thank you for visiting today.

I am soooo excited to be featuring today on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog with this card I made using the Butterfly Daisy Collage and Butterfly Poppy Collage stamp sheets.

I started by colouring a piece of white card using chalks.  I then stamped 3 butterflies in black ink and coloured with pencils.  In the background I stamped a smaller butterfly in a co-ordinating coloured ink and using clear embossing ink and clear embossing powder I stamped sections of the harlequin and text stamp.  I finally added 2 matts of co-ordinating stock together with 2 black matts and the card is finished.

Pink Butterflies with White Flowers

Hello

I am afraid to say that I have not enjoyed the hot weather so much over the weekend and instead have hidden away in a dark cold corner to craft.  Here is my efforts…..

WP_20140519_001

I started with a dark pink print I had previously done and stamped a very lovely stamp from Hobby Art in white embossing powder.

In the background I stamped some flowers together with some text in co-ordinating shades of pink.

I then added some texture lines in clear embossing powder.

Finally, I diecut some Spellbinder Butterflies and added randomly.

I hope you like it.  See you again soon.

Zentangle Mandala #2

Hello

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but we are gradually getting back to “normal” …. whatever that is.  Anyway a quick zentangle today which as always has had a much needed calming influence.

Apologies for the tea stain creeping in at the corner. This was caused by an overexcited dog and more specifically the lack of control of its tail.

See you again soon.
