Pink and Orange!

The first challenge for 2017 at Paper Artsy is for 'pink and orange' What a fun colour combo!
I made a A4 background sheet using Brusho's and cling wrap. When it was dry I chose a spot that I liked and trimmed it to fit my bright pink card. The stamps I used are by Rubberdance, and I stamped onto coloured card in the theme colours. The paint spills are just randomly cut from the card as well.
Have a great week and thanks for visiting

Play time!

Good morning everyone.
I have been having a play with my new infusions that I chose as my prize from Paper Artsy.
I used an A4 size glossy card and sprinkled various colours. I the used a gel type medium and brushed it through the colours to get a variagated background. I also used a stencil to add the green leaf effect. I stamped with Memento my new stamp (Paper Artsy HP1301EZ), and then, because it all seemed a little sticky, I clear embossed the whole piece. I stamped the butterfly again on a scrap, coloured with copics, and 3d'd it, adding a little brass piece for the body. I also added a little colour to the flowers, and attached the whole piece to a black card.

Even more 'new stuff'

Hi everyone, and thanks for visiting. I managed to fit in some time yesterday to make this card, using a new set of stamps by AladinE which I bought in Montreal last year.
I stamped with Memento on kraft, and coloured with pencils. The faux stitching is done with a Sharpie paint marker. It is simply attached to a black card base, and a silver sticker added.

more new 'stuff'

Hi every one, and welcome to my new follower, Maxine from Kiwime Creations a fellow crafter from 'downunder'

I won this lovely embossing folder from Di at Pixies Crafty workshop (thanks Di), so was keen to try it before I pack away my Christmas things. I rubbed Peacock Feathers DI on one side of the folder and ran it through my cuttlebug. I was pleased with the result as it highlighted the design beautifully. I added some diamantes and diecut words which I won at Holley's blog (thanks Holley)

I am entering at
Cuttlebugmania for Winter Wonderland
Pixies Crafty Workshop - the red was a snippet

Have a great week, we have visitors, so it is hard to find some crafting time!

Coffee and cream and new stuff!

Greetings all for the New Year. I wonder if this one will go as fast as 2016 did!

I recently had a win at Paper Artsy, and this is from the stamp set (Hot Picks HP1301EZ) I chose as part of my prize.
I have stamped onto pearlescent card with Adirondack 'Espresso' and as it would not dry I embossed it with clear EP I stamped the butterfly again on a scrap and raised it over the image. After roughening the edge, I ran a little walnut stain DI over, and adhered to my base card. I also added a scrap of lace on the side and used a cotton bud to add some Shades dye ink 'vanilla cream' to the flowers and butterfly.
