Tomic Challenge NO 4- Shimmer and Pearls

Well can you believe it's already the 4th Challenge over on the TOMIC Challenge Blog. These weeks just fly by dont they!
For my card today Ive attempted one of these Napkin Cards I keep seeing around Blogland. There's a great Tutorial HERE

Ive used Pion Design Paper

For the edges Ive used a Martha Stewart 'Around the Edge Punch'

 I made a separate piece for the belt and instead of attaching to the Napkin card, it just slides off.

You Are A Winner!!!

Just a quickie tthis morning to share a card Ive just finished. I did actually blog it over on my MAGNOLIA BLOG last night, but was sooooo tired I forgot about my main blog!!
My stampclub kit arrived yesterday and I'm always itching to play. I'm never sure about them at first, until I paint them and see them come alive. I also never know which to colour first, so I let Sophie choose!! A bit obvious when she's a cheerleader!!!LOL

Ive painted Tilda with Distress inks on 300gsm Watercolour paper. All papers are by Magnolia.

Stamps are all Magnolia from the Summer stampkit 2011
Tilda the Cheerleader
You are a winner
(I'm guessing the names!!!)hee hee

Tomic Challenge NO 3- Summer

Happy Monday to you all.
I'm afraid there's lots of photos to this post!!LOL
There's another challenge over on the TOMIC Challenge blog and this week the challenge is Summer. Again it's not my week to join in really, but seeing as the weather in the UK yesterday was NOT so Summerish, I set too and made this Hanger and had a fab time!!! I got lost in my own little world!!! ha ha

I did originally start painting this Edwin the other day as a Father's day card for my hubby, but didnt quite finish it!! So here he is. I was going to give it to my hubby for his fishing area (The Shed!!!LOL) but I have decided to keep it for my craft room!! Everything I used is from my scrap tray.
I have painted with Distress Re-Inkers on 300gsm Watercolour Paper. For the fence I have used Tim's On the Edge Die-Fence which I have Gessoed and distressed with Walnut Ink.

The butterfly I have made from a coke can and cut out using Tim's Butterfly die. Ive coloured with alcohol Inks and painted with gesso.
If you look carefully Ive even pinched one of his flies!!! It had to be a blue one (I dont think he will miss it!!!hee hee)

Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The bottle is from the Idea-ology range 'Corked Vials' which I have put a fish button in!!

Stamps I have used are
Tilda Gone Fishing and Edwin Waiting for Fish from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011
Magnolia Doo-Hickey-Swirl

Guest DT at Basic Grey

I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.
Todays card is my last as GDT for Basic Grey. Can I just say a big thankyou as it has been an honour and a good excuse to buy some more yummy Basic Grey Papers.
Im such a burke though! When Jo sent me details of what the challenges were, I misread the email. She said the challenges were Shabby Chic,Hot pink and green with Kraft!!! I did it all in one card on the first week!!LOL!! One week was shabby and the other Hot Pink and green!!!Oh dear! So both times I used the Sweet Thread Papers.
Ive used 'Sweetie Tilda' from the new Rainbow Collection and 'The Root Cellar Door' also from this collection. Ive painted  with Distress Re-inkers on 300gsm watercolour paper.

For the flower ive used  Doo-Hickey Peony on Kraft and the centre a rolled flower.
Ive also used Tim's Sizzix 'Clock Die', cheesecloth and lots of white paint.

A Gift From The Heart

Today Ive a card I made for the Magnolia shop a while back. It's unusual for me to have the background as plain as this as I normally paint my backgrounds. This time I wanted the couch to look this way and all the colour to be on Tilda. Ive painted her with Distress Re-inkers on 300GSM Watercolour Paper. Flowers I have rolled myself. Tilda is Ribbon Tilda from the So Sweet Collection. The posh couch is also from this collection. The border is with a Doo- Hickey Border.

Have you checked out our New Challenge Blog which starts on Monday 6 th June yet????
