We would like you to share projects that feature something old or forgotten.
sassy studio designs
Our fabulous sponsors this week are Sassy Studio Designs who are kindly offering one randomly selected winner 4 images from their gorgeous collection.

My card this week came together quite quick! I used papers from My Minds Eye Pretty Things 6x6 pad, distress all the edges with scissors then inking them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added some gold Inka Gold to finish them off.
You can get your hands on a Pretty Things Grab bag HERE it includes the 6x6 paper pad and gorgeous Washi tape!

I then grabbed my flower and mixed media stash boxes to make the centre piece of the card.

The main rose is fairly new, but the two small roses are old. 

I found some gold stamens at the bottom of the box I had forgotten about and added them into the arrangement along with some old buttons, wire and jump rings.

There are some punched leaves, beads and canvas flowers in there too!

Finally I gave the whole card a spritz of gold Tattered Angels and pink Perfect Pearls mists.
Then a sprinkle of Gold paint followed by some Gesso.

All the challenge details, entry and gorgeous DT inspiration can be found HERE.
I hope the sun is shining where you are have a great day

It's my turn to sponsor the challenge and I am offering one randomly selected winner a choice of 3 digital stamps from the C4E collection

As always there is gorgeous DT Inspiration too!
Hop over HERE to join us :)

My project this week is a layout featuring one of my lovely cats, Daisy.

I started off by adding modelling paste through a Crafters Workshop Punchinella stencil, then added some pieces of plasterboard tape to a 12x12" piece of white Bazzill cardstock.
The whole piece was given a coat of Gesso when it was dry.
I then added several shades of brown watercolour paints with plenty of water so that it pooled in the lovely texture. I added a little black watercolour for depth.

I added a sprinkle of Walnut Brown 3D-Stempel-Farbe (3D stamp-paint) from Viva Decor. This is new paint to me and I am experimenting with it. It has a lovely sparkle to it and has a nice consistency. I wasn't impressed with the white when I tried stamping with it :( More play is needed lol!

I didn't add much more to the layout, the DPs are a mix of Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket, all scraps.

The chipboard arrows are the negative pieces from Tim Holtz's Chevron die, coloured with Brown Gold Inka Gold. Inka Gold is another new product I am playing with, I am loving it! Gorgeous creamy texture which can be rubbed on without first painting Gesso on the chipboard! Real time saver :)

That's all from me today :)
Do hop over to see the fabulous DT inspiration and join us for this weeks challenge :)
Have a great day thanks for stopping by
