A card for a friend ... Lindys Stamp Gang

Hi there

It has been a super busy month so far here in Adelaide!
So much going on and lots of parties and celebrating happening too!

One of my best friends had a significant birthday a couple of weeks ago and I created this Easel Card especially for her.

Here are a few easy steps to creating this card....

It's that easy!
The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard soaks up the colour beautifully and that shine is just divine!

I was totally inspired by the new Colour Challenge for this card as this combination is lovely and I used the full set of April Limited Edition Sprays with the addition of Toto's Tornado Black for the lettering.

Lee loved her card and I know she will treasure it for years to come!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a great day
Much Love

Hi there

Last week I created a page for A Piece of Cake Designs......

Today I'm sharing a page that I created using the digi cut that was left over after I created this layout!

Waste not ... want not!

This collage of photos of Jessica and her BFF Lillian is nothing short of awesome and this title was right on the money!

I love this set created by Polka Dot Creative!

I used the papers from the Feb Main kit and added a little ink and lead pencil to grunge it up a little!

 I hope you are all having a great day!

Thanks for stopping by

White with ........

 It's a new month which means a new challenge over at White With One!

This month the colour is  ... SAND.

Love it - nice and close to raw chipboard! lol!

Here is my take on the colour challenge featuring new designs from Imaginarium Designs - these are not release yet and hand drawn designs by me!
I'm pretty happy with the results!

So get over and have a go - there are some amazing prizes up for grabs too!

Have a great day!

(and what do you think of the new look?)

Broken & Perfect ....

Hello to you all.

Today I'm sharing another page using the gorgeous Color Challenge for March for Lindy's Stamp Gang.

This is such a beautiful color combination and it worked great with these papers.

The look I was going for was soft and gentle so the best way to use the sprays was to paint them on direct to the paper using a wet brush.
Using water to thin the spray gave me a softer feel and I was able to darken it up in parts by adding more color.
I am really liking the effect.

Here are a few easy steps for you to try ...

So what do you think?
Not too hard?

Here are a few close ups....

 I have used a lead pencil to add detail to the title and the cuts.

And I'll leave you with a pic of the page taken on my messy work desk!

For this project, I used ...

A Bit o’Bubbly
C’est la vie Cerise
South Shore Sand
I’m Late, I’m Late Slate
Gag me with  a Spoon Grey
Frostbitten Fuschia
Clam Bake Beige

March 2015 Limited Edition Spray Set.


Have a wonderful day
