I used glitter on my snow (writer) on the trees and also on the background behind the girl.
I'm really pleased at the way my deer turned out - first I coloured them with promarkers and then dotted with the blender to create spots. (it didn't show while wet but as it dried they appeared as if by magic!)
I made this card following a sketch for Cute Card Thursday's sketch challenge but went a little wrong, but I think its still recognisable. Across the middle I used crepe paper which I stamped and mica powdered.
The wordin on the tag says enjoy the memoirs - unfortunately memoirs doesn't show too well on the photo. My ideas for this piece were to make a time machine tag - and the tickets would allow you to be taken back in time.
The clock is a squashed bottle cap in which I put a stamped clock face and filled this with crackle glaze. The wings are from a metal butterfly which I snapped in half and covered with alcohol inks.
After all we are multi-taskers aren't we? I recently went to The Range and bought this great Kraft cardstock - really cheap too! compared to some other shops. I used my cricut to cut the border (Storybook) and my cuttlebug for the lettering. The black and white pictures are from a site 'digital two for Tuesday' Thanks for looking Jolanda x
At my daughter's wedding it showered a few times but certainly didn't ruin the day.
The vicar said it was good luck, so that was alright!
The photo is of my daughters and bridesmaids going into the church before the wedding ceremony.
Some time ago I experimented with stamping onto masking tape and kept it on some plastic pockets. I used some of this across the centre of the page.
The title I stained with green ink and then put crackle glaze over the top. most of the flowers are from a still life painting that I printed out and cut into many pieces. the butterflies are from a hot off the press nature collage book
I love to stamp and using masks is one of my favourite techniques - you never really know what the end result will look like!!
First I stamps the loving couple then the Eiffel Tower and behind this is the Arch and some trees. I made a moon shaped mask and inked over the top of all the masks with weathered wood distress ink. A white gel pen was used for the stars.
This is my daughter on her wedding day dancing to Endless love by Lionel Ritchie.
I used a sketch from Frosted Designs challenges and the title Together is a word to by used for the Bird is the Word challenge site. This layout smells really nice!! I used chocolate brownie embossing powder on the swirls and vanilla for the music paper . Behind the photo is a tag with the lyrics to the song.
Thanks for all the lovely comments you have left me :)
This is my layout for the Screen 2 scrap challenge this month - The challenge is to take inspiration from the poster of the film Psycho!
I couldn't believe it when I read a post from Debi that she was so disappointed that there were so few entries this month!! I thought this was such a great and fun challenge - so all you scrapbookers out there check out this fantastic challenge blog and see what you can come up with.
Now, onto my layout - the photos are from a pub in a small village in Norfolk, on the Broads. I think the story is that Mary Flynn was a reed cutter and her boat caught fire and sank but her body was never found. As you can just about see on the photo her hands are tied and she has an anchor tied to her feet - was she murdered? was she a witch? something we will never know. I thought this was a nice spooky story for the challenge.
The criteria for the challenge was to use a 1 word title cut in half, a spooky house (I have several) and a silhouette of a figure - I didn't do a complete figure but to the right of the picture is a figure drowning (could be Mary) her arms are in the air and her hair is floating on the water (I hope you can work out what bit is what. lol) Thanks for looking Jolanda x
I made this 'Gorjuss' stepper card and then found it fits with a few challenges running at the moment. But first I'll tell you what cuts I used to make it. The trees are made using the Straight From the Nest cartridge. I embossed them using folders in the cuttlebug.
The flowers were punched and coloured in with Promarkers/
The bunting and tablecloth are Molly Blooms stamps. I think the picnic basket is by Olyfant which might be made by Kars but I'm not sure.
I saw that SSSS are having a steampunk challenge this week - well that is a challenge for me! I hope this is steampunk enough!!!
I've had this stamp of the singing lady for some time and have hardly used it - every time I try the image ends up in the bin - but this time I think I've cracked it!! lol I thought this lady might need a bit of help with her singing - must be very tiring so I added a clockwork key to her back. Behind her are some cogs that turn to give her energy...
I finished it off with a crackled flower that I've also had for some time - I knew it would come in useful one day!
