Harvest Wreath for Papermill Direct Design team member challenge

harvest Wreath for autumn challenge at Papermilldirect

Hi to all out there in blogland! Today I have made something a little different and I am really pleased with how it turned out. You know when you suddenly get an idea in your head and you have to do it there and then? Well this was one of those, its a little different to the picture in my head but that happens to me all the time!

I started off with some white linen paper from Papermill Direct which I inked up with distress inks – Mustard seed, Wild Honey, Barn Door, and Vintage photo. I love the way the linen texture come up when the paper is inked don’t you? I then took my trusty “Autumn Gatherings die from Sizzix and cut me a “heap” of leaves and believe me, you do need quite a few (I cut 4 1/2 strips) Once the leaves were cut I set about inking the edges of them so they would stand out against each other a little bit and then stuck them fairly randomly onto a ring of brown card. The ring measured 6 inches on the outside and 5 inches on the inside, just in case you wish to know ­čÖé All that was left was to stick on the scarecrow, words and corn which were all cut on my plotter. The corn was painted with liquid leaf copper.

Here is the result:

I am entering this into the Autumn challenge over at Papermill Direct (they are looking for a new design team too so why not pop over and have a go)

R is for Roses are red with SplodgeAway

Roses Are Red card using mask from SplodgeAway

Well ok they are not roses, but they are red ­čÖé When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.

CBN July 1 sponsored by Lacy Sunshine stamps

The image I used is called Lizabeth- Wild Daisies Digi Set, the papers just cried out to be used with her. I coloured her with copic’s and cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. The theme this month is Metal Magic, so I used some rainbow mirror card for my flourishes (well its kind of metal isnt it!)

Sunday Stampers with Hel’s Sheridan – Purple Haze

Sunday Stampers Purple Haze

I’ve made this wall hanging to go into the fabulous Hels Sheridan’s challenge,┬á the theme this time is Purple Haze, as it is my favourite colour I just had to have a go didn’t I?
I took inspiration from the hanging that Hel’s made on air last week on Create and Craft, it turned out a little more pink than I would have liked normally but then you have to go with what you have (it definitely said purple on the pot of paint!)

I used the mask that came with Ali Reeve’s DVD and some texture paste I bought in my local Lidl’s quite a while ago, I then painted with said purple paint and used a Cut and Dry sponge around the edges, The silver is distress paint and the sentiment comes from Personal Impressions Creative Thoughts set (one I go to over and over). I cut the flower out of some mount board with my new Big Shot (anniversary pressie from hubby – thanks Roddie)and tattered florals die, painted and stamped it with an indigo Blu script stamp (another “go to”). The butterflies are made from Martha Stewart paper clay and mold then painted with the same “purple” paint.
