Splash & Splatter

It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight we're asking you to Splash and Splatter, in other words - have fun!

I've used a sprayed background and added inky splats in pink and black before stamping my image.  The flower was stamped again on watercolour card and fussy cut, and both flowers were colours with Picked Raspberry DI.  I added tiny seed beads to the flower center.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous projects to show, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Birthday Flowers

It was DDs birthday a couple of weeks ago and this is the card I made, which matches, to some extent, the gift tag I made recently.
I've used the Tim Holtz Bouquet stencil, some stenciling, stamping and shading  in Iced Spruce DI and then highlighted the textured flowers with Aquamarine Treasure Gold before adding the AALL & Create stamped background as a focal piece to display the flowers.

We've just had a lovely lunch with DD and SIL and we saw the latest scan photos, you can see their little features on the 4D pictures - amazing  - and last week I felt a tiny kick - such a wonderful feeling.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Christmas at Tag Tuesday

I've been such an infrequent blogger lately, from thinking 'lockdown' would give me loads of extra crafting time, I seem to have lost the 'plot'.  I really must get back on track - before my life changes forever - from thinking I wasn't going to be a 'granny'  ---  DD is going to have TWINS!!!  They're due at the start of January - or maybe earlier, depending on how things progress. DD has been furloughed so there's been lots of social distance visiting, hence lack of crafting time.

Anyhow the theme at Tag Tuesday is Christmas and, as I missed the last challenge, it gave me the 'nudge' to get the Christmas box out and have a rummage.  I've used some of the bits and pieces left over from last year, and there's quite a lot of bits, so it might be an easy way to get an early start just in case things get hectic!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, it's certainly hot here.

Words/or Numbers

Words/ or Numbers is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday - you can choose to use one or both.

I've used on of my Tyvek backgrounds that had some random script stamping already, and stamped the poppy image, then added fussy cut flower heads.  I cut a circle mask,  and inked around it with Wilted Violet DI to highlight the flowers. 

The Design Team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please head over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.

Just a short post as it's DD's birthday and we're celebrating here as she's busy packing everything into boxes ready for a new house move.

Have a great day and thanks for calling in.
