Good Times with Eb & Lindys!

Its time for a new Color Challenge over at Lindy's Stamp Gang!

Check out how freaking awesome this set is .....



 I was super keen to make the colors POP and using Black cardstock for the base 
of my layout was certainly the best option!

LOVE this photo of my girly soulmate, Ebony... perfect for this color combo!

Love Life....



Hello again!

Today I have created a layout for Lindys Stamp Gang using the left over file cut from my last project shown last week!
I purchased the Cut file from The Cut Shoppe!


I have used three colors from the January Color Challenge Release ... Pearlescents, Mad Hatter Mint and Treasure Island Aqua.

Here are a few simple steps for creating this page.









I gave then a couple of coats to ensure a nice and rich color.


I love the beautiful sheen on the words.!






Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great day

Watercolor Scrapbooking with Lindys ...

Hi there

Today I am sharing a simple but effective layout using the January Color Challenge Set from Lindys Stamp Gang!


I love using my Silhouette Machine and I am guilty of not using it as much as I probably should.

For this page, I used a file purchased from The Cut Shoppe some time ago and found the perfect photo to fit within the heart!

Here are a few simple steps to create the page.

First up, cut your digital design on a 12x12 white cardstock sheet & pop it aside.


 I then cut a piece of watercolor paper to be a small amount bigger than the digi cut so that it slips underneath.








I colored some strips also to create a border for underneath and then added some sewing detail all the way around. I stuck on the watercolor paper in the center and then taped on the digi cut white sheet over the top!


Love the result ... simple...pretty and really inexpensive to make (well ... after you purchase the Silhouette of course)




Thanks for stopping by and see you soon

Happy December


Hi there and Happy December!

So I was feeling a little festive and totally inspired by this months fabulous color 
challenge at Lindys Stamp Gang and wanted to create something that was a little different for me but kinda fun!



I used a linen 11x14' canvas and gave it a light coat of gesso to start then here are a few 
simple steps to get you on your way!








 Add a little repetitive stamping around the edges and smudge 
on some metallic gold & black gelato.


 I mixed some Angel Wings Gold with Purely White embossing powder to stamp the doilies ... I love the shimmery effect the powder gave.



Thanks so much for stopping by and dont forget to head over and have 
a go at the challenge this month!
