Tattered Lace - With LOVE...

Hi Everyone :) 

This is the first project that I've made for the fabulous Tattered Lace inspiration blog...and I am honoured to be part of it.  
As we are heading towards Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share this lovely heart wreath with you today.

The heart wreath is approx 20cm x 20cm. I picked this one up from a garden centre, and as it was a natural woody colour, I painted a layer of white Gesso over it. 
I cut the LOVE die in both white card and pale lavender mirri card...and a few of the Floral Flourish & Lacy Rose in green and pale pink mirri card. 
To the white LOVE die cut I randomly brushed on Seedless Preserve Distress ink, then added a few hand-painted flowers. Whilst these dried, I added some of the same distress ink to the white heart wreath. 
I then adhered the white LOVE word over the mirri one in a shadow effect, and hot glued it to the wreath, adding the Floral Flourish & Lacy Rose's.  To finish it off, I cut and added the word 'with' ...also from the LOVE set. 
These would be gorgeous in wedding theme colours to present to the bride on her wedding day too!

IndigoBlu/Limor Webber CHA stamps...part 1

Exciting stuffs!!! IndigoBlu have just launched a brand new range of stamps at CHA in I thought I'd share a couple with you today.

This is a canvas I made with a couple of the gorgeous new designs by the wonderfully talented Limor Webber! These are absolutely great for all those Mixed Media projects, but for the 'cleaner' look too, for those of you who aren't into mixed media.................YET!!!

See...just when you think it's an ink becomes a flower!! 

I've also used one of the script circles from Limor Circles and 

...the 'splatty' (technical term!) border from the Rugged Edge set.

I've added the word ART from the set Alice II - with Chariot of Fire - Mega Flakes...and also randomly added flake around the edge of the canvas too... 

Hope you like them as much as I do....and there's more to come!!!!! 

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges...
Addicted to Stamps and More - Make your Mark
Mod Squad - Teal & Purple

Take care

Purple Weddings!!

My poor old blog has been a bit neglected of late as we move into the realms of  the social sites of Facebook/Twitter etc...but as it was a NYR of mine to put more on here...I'd better do just that! :)
 Before Christmas I had a few wedding orders to do...which actually was quite a nice break from all things Christmas...and Cadbury Purple was obviously an in colour!

I thought I'd share a few wedding cards, a candle & a keepsake box with reaching for the chocolate though...I know you're tempted with all that gorgeous purple!!  :D

A keepsake box (the mdf box was made by my wonderful other half)... to keep all those special Wedding Day treasures in....

A candle to use or keep ...

and cards...

...and this one was for a different wedding....

I really am going to try and visit my own blog more often in hopefully I'll see you soon!!! ;) xx
I'm going to enter these into the
Fussy & Fancy challenge - Pearls & Swirls
