Imagination Crafts Weekender

Hi peeps

Here's a couple of samples I've made for the Create and Craft weekender. 

For this one I used the Daisy decoupage stamps as intended and coloured them with white and pink mica powders mixed with a little water. The background and 'topper' are embossed with gold EP

This one has lots of layers built up with IC stamps and the dragonfly stencil, distress inks and IC 'sparkle gel'. I did two layers of sparkle gel and then coloured it with promarkers and added a little white mica. 

Sue will be on your screens sharing fabby techniques and products at various times over the weekend, I hope you can tune in to watch. Please check the schedule for the show times. 

I've set the V+ to record all the shows as I'm currently in sunny Cuba on my holibobs hee hee

Thanks for looking

Cream on cream...... for a change ;)

Hey peeps

Made this last week for a friends wedding and thought I'd share,
 I love making white on white for weddings but I thought I'd go cream on cream.

I think I actually prefer it now as sometimes I find different white card can be slightly off shade sometimes and it sticks out like a sore thumb but mixing the cream seems more forgiving.... 

Any hoo enough babble here's the card 
I did take inspiration for the sentiment topper off a ladys card I came across on pinterest but as usually happens I forgot to pin it so can't give proper credit but thanks  :) 

Stuff I used
Sheena D A4 Indian embossing folder
Tim Holtz lattice die
Spellbinder labels die
Tonic flourish dies
Sizzix matching die and emb folder for sentiment (printed on card from PC)
Few flowers from my stash 
Mixed cream card and paper-stock 
Centura Pearl for the box
