Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to another Mixed Craft Saturday, this one has the added bonus of including Michele's Magazine Review too.
First photo today is of a card I made using a new (to me) technique, I made the background with Distress Oxides, I smooshed some into my craft mat, instead of spritzing with just water I used water with a little pearl mica powder in, so as well as having a great multicoloured background, it now shimmers too, it looks fantastic but I couldn't catch the shimmer very well I with the camera. I love how the colours worked togther, I then took my background piece trimmed it and placed it upon a piece of white embossed with the SU Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then onto a card base made with Mint Macaron card as it matched the colours in the distressed background beautifully. I then added a Dragonfly trail.
It's a different look for me, I hope you like it . XXX
Michele's Magazine Review
Thank you so much Michele for an amazing review.
Pat treated herself to some new Groovi Plates, what a lovely selection, I saw Pat using them in the week and the flowers she did were amazing, so detailed too.
Pat also shared the Flintstones cake that her Granddaughter Amy made for her boyfriend Matty. I took her hours but my goodness it was worth every minute, so much incredible detail, she could make these professionally Pat !!
Thanks so much for sharing your shopping and Amy's amazing cake.
Lynda had a go at making up her new John Lockwood Sandwich Box, Lynda it's stunning, I love all the detail and it looks so beautiful all in white, what a perfect way to present something inexpensive and make it look a million Dollars!
Thank you for sharing Lynda
Cheryl was lucky enough to bag these fantastic Phil Martin stamps from a "Destash" site, heavens knows why they were on there not even a week after launch but who cares?! Cheryl was the lucky one, I absolutely love these stamps and may well treat myself at Ally Pally.
I can't wait to see what you create with them Cheryl, thank you so much for sharing.
Danielle's latest make Is this stunning gift bag, perfect for men, it matches with the ''Man Card" she made for our last Challenge, for the tutorial please pop over to Dannii's blog....
Thanks Dannii for sharing your bag.
Thank you to everyone that took part today. XXX
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
