morning everyone
hope your all well on this cold wet day
lets brighten it up with a new 
Petal Lu challenge

as always its anything goes
i have up cycled a soup tin

i have a whole bunch of stuff laying around on my desk or on the sides and shelves 
so im trying to get it all organised and looking pretty
( well ill try lol)

so i took my tin and covered it in cling film, took some  kitchen towel and 
using pva squelched and shaped it into a branch, leaving it to dry overnight.
once dry  i removed it from the tin and the cling film. 
next i covered the tin in pretty paper.

i painted the branch in brown and a little green acrylic paint.
once dry i added it to the tin with some cosmic shimmer glue, 
fussy cut a few butterfly's to match the papers

then i added some of the beautiful Petal lu flowers 

quite pleased with it :)

hope you like it guys and come play along

well here we are 2017!
and my first make of the year is for the new 

im going to come clean and admit im not in love with this one, 
 i think its the background is too dark and busy,
i loved how she was coloured, but its too delicate for the background but to be totally i was running out of time , and the idea looked so much better in my head lol

i will redo this and come back with it but as today was the new challenge i have gone with it for now,
so come play along and watch this space lol

Hi guys
I have been lucky enough to be able to play with some beautiful
new images from
This little darling is called
I loved colouring her up, I used a mix of copics and prism colour pencils.

the papers are from Adrienne Looman beautiful chic collection.
i matt and layered the 8x8 card base, added a doilie, and the coloured ,mated image.

next i cut a picket fence and ran it through the cuttlebug with a crafters companion textured folder to get the wood grain.

to complet the card i had cut loads of tiny leaves and made a wreath , garland and corner piece, i added flower stamens to look like berries.

hope you guys like it .
