I've spent hours this weekend making this 12" by 12" piece, phew! I just love these scribbly birds from Dina Wakley, so many ways they can be used.... The background is made with Dylusions inks with a Crafters Workshop stencil. The leaves are a Dylusion stamp and the tree branch is a Tim Holtz die. I hope you like it, I'm pleased with it! :D

I've been playing with some Dylusions inks and making a pile of backgrounds... I decided to add some of Ryn's Ornate leaves (www.designsbyryn.com) and a sweet little bird to make this project! A touch of white gel pen adds a little lift to the leaves.
I hope you like my colourful project! Thank you for visiting, much appreciated! xxxx

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter break? A fab opportunity to do some crafting! :D
I'm loving Ryn's Seahorses at the moment, and also my watercolour 'stuff'.... The fabby Mackintosh sentiment is another from the Chocolate Baroque set.
Just a touch of good old Stickles to make this little Seahorse chappie look sparkly....
Thank you for visiting again, big hugs to you all, I really do appreciate all your lovely comments! <3

I've been playing with a new Memory Box stencil, and I teamed it with a gorgeous Seahorse (one of a set of three) and Rising Bubbles from Designs by Ryn. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.
I hope you like it! Thank you very much for visiting, and a big welcome and thank you to my new followers! xxxx Happy Easter! :) x

I hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather at the moment, and wish you all a Happy Easter!
Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments, big hugs! Xxxxxxxx

My new Chocolate Baroque stamps arrived yesterday, ooh happy post! :) I was all overcome, you know that feeling when you get lots of new stamps and you just don't know what to do first?? Well, I fiddled about and made lots of rubbish bits that ended up in the bin, then I found a background that I made a while ago with Dylusions inks... and this is what I made with it.....

Hello lovely blog people!
This is my last make for the Craftyhands design team, :( I've had to say goodbye to the team as my Open Uni study has become very intense this year, and I can't do everything unfortunately!
Anyways, this fortnight the theme is Anything Goes!! Always a good one! :) Pop over to the challenge blog HERE.

I had a play a few weeks ago, with Tim Holtz's stamps and his tattered leaves die. I coloured the leaves with distress ink and then covered them with crackle paint, hubby thought they were real! (Mind you, that was from a distance lol!). I stamped the leaf on watercolour paper and coloured with vintage photo distress ink. The ribbon was coloured with DI to match, I hope you like it! Thank you for visiting and big hugs if you have left me a comment! Xxxxx
