C4E Recipe #30 - Random Recipe

 Hello :)
I don't know what has happened to the last couple of weeks! I've totally missed last weeks challenge with crop prep & end of term things there just wasn't enough time. 
This weeks challenge is Anything but a card. We have a fab prize up for grabs from Whoopsie Daisy Digital stamps and of course the fabulous DT gallery. sadly we are saying good-bye to Suzette this week and our July GDT Brenda. It has been fabulous working with both these talented ladies :)
Join us HERE for this weeks challenge :)

 My project this week is a Mixed Media Canvas. I made this canvas for the C4E June Crop workshop.
It was so much fun! I am really getting into the collage/art journal style!
I have used free collage images from the Internet, mostly from The Graphics Fairy.
Other materials used are Distress Inks, Crackle Paint, Acrylic paint, glossy accents, beads, feathers, and wire.

Have a fab weekend thanks for stopping by

C4E Recipe #28 - Embellishment Recipe

Hello :)
Happy Friday! Have you got anything planned for the weekend? I'm hoping for a quite one with plenty of crafting lol!
We have a fab new challenge for you over on the C4E blog this week we would like you to use the 3-2-1 recipe.
I had real trouble wording this on the challenge post lol! So I'll just repeat my poor effort....
3 of something, 2 of something and 1 something!
I think someone stole my literacy skills while I was sleeping lol!
There is gorgeous inspiration from the super talented design team including our GDTeamie Brenda.
Our sponsors this week are Crafty Sentiments who are kindly offering a cute stamp for our winner.
Lots of good reasons to hop over HERE!!!

For some reason I had convinced myself I had lots of teacher thank-you cards to make this year, and as usual had not started! With this in mind I have made the first one.

I have used MME Remember Roses paper from the Stella and Rose collection. I have inked the bias binding and doily with Cloudy blue alcohol ink. The doily and DP had a generous spritz of glimmer mist, sadly I didn't capture the glimmer in the photos, it was all I could do to take the photo before the wind blew the card away lol!
My 3-2-1 is 3 Butterflies, 2 pins and 1 Rosette flower.
So a few more cards to do before next Friday when the boys break up for the holidays.
Have a wonderful weekend thanks for stopping by :)

C4E Recipe #27 - Colour Recipe

Hello everyone :)
Sorry to be late with this weeks challenge post. We've had a busy weekend with birthday outings and visitors, it has been lovely though :) We had T4 here yesterday too! The town was buzzing lol! 

 This weeks C4E Recipe is a colour recipe and we would like you to use the picture above as inspiration for your projects. The image is from a fabulous website they have some gorgeous wellies lol!
This week we are sponsored by Stamping all day who are offering a fabulous prize! 
There is lots of inspiration from the DT too! The DT call is now closed so I have a busy week ahead choosing new teamies!

 My card this week uses  sketch from Sketch and Stash and a cute Stampavie image -  Mouse in Hammock. I was sure I'd used the stamp before but I can't find any pictures of cards using it! 

I have coloured with Distress inks (Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and weathered wood )
 The flowers are from wild orchid and the leaves are Martha Stewart Fond Branch punch.
The DP's are Basic Grey Wisteria from my stash.

I have added lots of Diamond Stickles to finish the card.

I'd also like to enter this card into the following fabulous challenges
Sketch and Stash - sketch and old/new stash (old DP new stamp)
Sir Stampalot - anything goes
Polly Craft Challenge - Great outdoors
