Michele's Cat Card
Michele's Cute Handbag Dog card
Dress Form Tag
Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that where ever you are you aren't snowed in, please go careful it's sure to be quite icy !! Will it be 'Frozen Pitch' today I wonder? Or will the girls have to go play football in the freezing cold?!
Michele has clearly got her 'mojo' back, as she sent me four cards to share with all of you yesterday!
I love the cute Cat image on the first card, with the pretty flowers on its colour, it looks as though it is sitting outside someones door waiting to be let in!
Lovely card Michele, thankyou for sharing xxx
Now the second card reminds me of my 'Grand' dog Diego, he is a handbag dog
If ever I saw one! Such a cute image, beautifully coloured Michele, a gorgeous card to bring a smile to anyone's face, thanks again Michele xxx
Now then, I have been buying Somme different materials to have a go at mixed media, I already have lots of bits to play with but I have ordered some pretty lace and ribbon to have a play with the 'Shabby Chic' trend! But last night I thought I would have a play with myb Tim Holtz Sewing Room Die, I die cut the Dress form and decided to make it into a pretty tag. I die cut a piece of double sided adhesive to fit the 'bodice' part added it to Dress form, peeled backing away and put a Special Touch Mask on to the adhesive, I then used a baby blue and a pink Martha Stewart glitter, adding the blue first, make sure your tap all excess glitter off and then peerl off the Mask and then added the pink glitter to the remaining exposed adhesive, it created a pretty floral pattern that worked well as a dress or top. I then decided to make a super pretty skirt, by layering some Pink Silky Crush Ribbon with some fancy glittered Tulle over the top, I added some Grosgrain Ribbon in pink and some pearl trim to the waistband, I decided to add nothing but a couple of pearls to the top, it was sparkly and pretty enough, I added the same pearl trim to the neckline too.
I then shaded the Dress form top and base with a little blue ink. I did exactly thee same background effect with the glitter on the Tag, placed a Doily to lay Dress form on, added a few pearls and some ribbon and tulle through the whole in the tag to finish! It's very girly and was quite fun to make too!
Not much doing here today, Paul will be sleeping off nights, ready to go in again tonight and the girls have a football Match. Hoping to do Somme crafting!
Love and hugs to all
