Hello Everyone,


I have been Skycrafting with my friend Lisa and we always do great stuff when we get together.  Lisa was going to do a class on a canvas in the sytle of She Art, and she inspired me to make this 🙂




Awww……. so much texture, so many elements, so much build up and I love the finished product.




The top part of the canvas, gotta love that little birdie!!




And another little birdie hiding down the bottom, awww….





Love the flowes, all those roses were sprayed with Dylusions spray ink (love that stuff).


The background was stamped onto tissue paper and then adhered to the canvas with PVA, who would have thought you could do that??? See Miss Lisa taught me something again!!


So get on over to see what she has created, it will be well worth the visit!!!


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,


It is getting cooler still with a cold change moving in and although we have lovely sunny days forecast through till after the weekend, the temperature is dropping to the teens for the days to come.  Brrrr…..


So I made a card for a challenge on SCS but it doesn’t really fit, because I was supposed to use an envelope for the pocket, but I made my own and thought it was pretty cool.




The tag is made of cardstock and decorated with the same paper as the pocket.  The paper I have used is from Bella and it is just gorgeous, double sided, in cream and  black with owl and swirls on one side and those brilliant stripes on the other.  How pretty is this?


The front is decorate with lace and die cut leaves that have been inked in anger Distress Ink Walnut stain.  The roses are dipped with the same ink and the edges are done as well.  The larger rose is a Laurens handmade rose, the smaller ones are bought and made from mulberry paper.



The tag is shaped and the top is punched with Matha Steware Wild Flowers corner punch and stamped with a script and edged around with the Walnut Stain ink.


Decorated with a panel of the paper and lace and a panel for writing on.  Further decorated with a rosette made from the Memory Box Die Gothic Rosette and the leaf and roses.  I have finished this with some Stickles aound the rosette and the top of the tag.




You know I cased this from Lisa, she makes such beautiful tags and pockets.  Only she does them with such finesse and such wonderful colouring.  I am really a monochromatic sort of girl, my senses get overwhelmed when I try to get more than a couple of colours to work together, and I am totally floored when I have to incorporate patterns into the mix as well.  🙂


Well, I hope you liked this, have a great day and get some inky fingers, it is so fun!!


Hugs 🙂
