We're Smooching for Trend Week at JUGS

What a FABULOUS trend SUE
chose for us this week as Hostess at Just Us Girls.
It's all over the internet at present and
I love getting inky fingers.
Once again I have used one of my favourite colour combinations -
Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers & SU Melon Mambo
for my smooching background.
I found a new way (to me) of doing it - Inking Acetate
and spritzing with water.
My floral stamp is from Penny Black - Temptation
heat embossed in black. 
Added a few extra blobs with
Tim Holtz Speckles Stencil
Sentiment is from SU Lotus Blossom.
Finished with a few pearls and gems.
I know you are going to love playing with this one
so pop over to Our Blog
and see what awesome smooching has been created by
Guest Designer Angie Cimbalo and the Jugheads.
We look forward to seeing you there.

I'm again Playing with Paper - A Sketch Challenge

I'm again playing over at
and this time for their Sketch Challenge.
Details are Here.
I wanted to get away from adding flowers
but didn't quite get there. However I decided
to add butterflies and then found some
pretty floral paper so used the colours
from that as my bases.
Because I used plain paper as one of my backings
I scored beside the sentiment which is from GKD.
My butterflies are from Sizzix and I have popped my
floral DP for dimension.
This is a nice cas sketch so am looking at
playing around with this again before
entries close.
Thanks for dropping by -
