Christmas is COMING.

Time to try your hand at making some Christmas Tree Trimmings
and our Challenge this fortnight
at Crafting with Dragonflies is to make a
Some time ago I bought a pack of empty baubles that you pulled apart
and added photos to - perfect for one of the digi's  picked from our sponsor
and the above photo is one that I played with.
They are double sided so I decided to use 2 different images.
I coloured and added glitter to them and around the edges.
Also added - big tartan bow, small bows ribbons
 and a few other little embellishments.
Not the easiest things to photograph so please excuse
the quality of these photos.
Hope you find a little time to create something for your tree or wall
for our latest challenge. We sure would love to see them
Also don't forget to check out the other Dragonflies on the right side bar
to see what lovely decorations they have made.
Thanks for popping in - always appreciate you taking the time to do so.
 Till next time -  Cherrio from

WHW #124 Tutorial

When I saw the latest Tutorial over at Inspired by Stamping 
I was fascinated with the result that Kendra got from such a simple little trick  HERE
by using painter's tape.
 I was hoping I had time to play with this and so pleased I did.
I used the technique on the 3 banners underneath the flower and
also the strip under the ribbon inking with the 3 colours I used on the banners.
Products I used are -
Cream Parchment card stock although it looks white.
Marianne Designer Paper - Dark Vintage
IBS - Vintage Labels 1
IBS Vintage Frames for Sentiment
Johnson & Johnson Cloth Tape for inking
MS Leaves
Distress Inks - Festive Berries Antique Linen Frayed Burlap
and Memento Pistachio
Store bought ribbon flower.
Sure hope you like my take on this tutorial.
