Good Luck

Zoƫ from Make it Crafty has made great colouring tutorials, both "live" and e-books. For me they have been truly good because my colouring with markers is NOT good. This is the first time I've tried to concentrate and learn. Person with no flippin patience this is A Very Hard Task! ;)

This gives me some confidence that I can improve.

Sun and Fun

It's been 2 weeks since my last blogging! No wonder, because half of the time I'm like ouch auch can't move and then... WE HAVE HAD WONDERFUL SUNNY WEATHER!

Anyhow, here is the first of "My Very Long Way to Colour with Really Trying to Learn How to Colour with Markers" blogging. Phew. Ooh, this is gonna be fun. You are welcome to laugh at and with me.

Card blank is 6x6, embossed background is just couple of mm larger and nicely covers the base.

Detailed photos:
Crafter's Companion 6x6 embossing folders just about too big for the 6x6 card blanks I use. Oh well, rather this than other way round, to be honest with you. You have to love those sharp lines and beautiful details of them.
I put 2mm and 4mm pearls, colour is the same, although looks different shades.
Wows, 7 layers if counting base and image.

As you can see above, blending is not my strong point
smudging is ;) BUT I like her head.

Clearly she says:  Yep, that's all for now!

Joyful July

Morning! Or afternoon or evening depending where you are, but Good Morning this is and I hope you are, too. I have delightful news and long blog post with lots of photos. 

Couple of months ago with big hopes I applied a DT post when I saw DT call at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. Today I can proudly present my first DT creation for this funny and warm challenge blog.

Crafts Galore Encore rules are easy: Our Challenges are for crafters of any medium, as long as it fits the theme! July theme is "Use Stamp or Digi in Your Project". We all love cards and this is something we can say that sky's a limit. Use anything you like, let your imagination fly and join us!

Our wonderful sponsor in July is Fred She Said, and this is just a short note from FSS: Fred She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - Digi's, Pre-coloured images, Papers, Sets, Fred's Flower Kits, and even digital cutting files. Have some fun with Fred!

Very generously Fred She Said is giving a Gift Card for $15 to spend on FSS goodies in the shop!

Here is my card (box card), and I used Fred She Said digital stamps Emma and Rosie and also a freebie from year 2010 called Flower Pot,because flower pots were like made for this bench where Emma and Rosie are sitting, don't you thing?

This project was fun and dead easy. First I coloured the stamp, then measured how big the box should be, then I took a piece of card and made the box and drawer. Glued all together, all roses made by me. This is suppose to be very girly and I think it is.

Roses punches - Tonic Studios
Lace, ribbon, pearls - all stash
