We're Adding Texture at TioT

Add Some Texture is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday
I used Transparent Texture Paste on white cardstock through a Wendy Vecchi stencil before spraying with Speckled Egg Distress ink, I blotted some areas and left 'puddles' in others.  My TH wildflowers were coloured with DIs and I used various shades to build up the depth of the flowers.
The rest of the Design Team have created some wonderful textures to inspire you, so please visit the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Thanks for calling in, I'm on Granny duties, so I'll probably not be around until Thursday.
Have a great day whatever you're doing.

More Wings for Stamping Sensations

It's mid month inspiration time at Stamping Sensations for the current challenge of Anything Goes with the option of Wings/Tails.
I must admit I'm not usually one for Fairy cards and up till a month ago I only possessed two Lavinia fairies, but on a little spend recently I couldn't resist this little couple.
I made a little scene using Distress inks, then built up the foliage using other Lavinia stamps.  I haven't added a  sentiment yet, but it will probably be used for an Anniversary card.
The rest of the Design Team have been very creative with their samples, so please visit the main blog, where you will find all the challenge details, along with details of a great prize from Uniko Stamps for one lucky random winner.

We've had our first 3 consecutive days of looking after the twins - wish I was 30 years younger and had an extra pair of eyes in the back of my head! I'm just hoping it gets easier as they get older (or am I kidding myself).
Have a great weekend, Avril xx

All Loved Up at TioT

 We're All Loved Up at Try it on Tuesday, well that is the theme of our new challenge,  You could choose any Romantic occasion or you could simply choose to show someone just how much you love them, especially with Valentine's day soon.

I've had a little splurge on some Lavinia stamps and couldn't resist the little Hares along with the Fairy Bell set.  I created a little moonlight scene and also used some freebie stamps and sentiment.
The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you'll also find all the challenge details.

Have a great day, Avril xx

Anything Goes with Stamping and the option of Wings /Tails

It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month it's  another Anything Goes Stamping with the option of Wings/ Tails.  We have a great prize for one lucky random winner of a package from Uniko.
I've used Bella and Bell Flower Vine from Lavinia on a background that was sprayed with Antique Linen DI,  I then  used a circle mask and blended Speckled Egg outward.  I stamped the stars using Brilliance Platinum Planet, which gives a very subtle sparkle. The sentiment was a magazine freebie.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please visit the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.
