A 'Tissue' - no I don't have the flu!

Hi there Crafty Friends!
Over at Sisters of Snarky Stampers they have their
current challenge which is T for Tissue so
popping this tissue card over to their Gallery!

I had all intentions of getting out a colourful napkin
or to use a bit more tissue than what I landed up doing here.
(May yet get time to do just that)
but I saw a card similar on Pinterest Here so decided to case it.
When I found it again - 
 because I hadn't saved it I realized it was made
by one of my blog followers and she lives just
south of the border. Thanks Cathy for the inspiration.
You can find her card details at Cathys Card Spot.
Also I used the same STAMPlorations sentiment
with white embossing powder - 
and great minds again - the same MB Branch.
My card base is a coppery metallic paper and
topped with a lighter grainy metallic paper.
I cut the circle for my moon with a Spellbinder die then
glued some scrunched up tissue paper onto it.
This is where I differed from Cathy's card by brushing
Perfect Pearls in White & Heirloom Gold
while some of the glue was still wet.

Here is a close up of the textured tissue.

I then sealed it with Clear Gel Medium.
My little bird is from Kaisercraft.
This and the branch were touched up with 
the Perfect Pearls as above. 
To add interest I then added some white lines
with a gel pen.
Till next time - Cherrio from

Happy Birthday!

There's No Place Like 'Home'

Hello and Welcome to Today's Post.
It's time for a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
It's a new month so it's our 
Anything Goes with Watercolours
with the optional twist of  'HOME'

I had a hard time photographing this so
 please excuse the quality here.
To start I watercoloured my background with
Tim's Oxide Inks adding drops of water
and touches of iridescent medium.
I then cut out part of my HLS House die
and a stitched slope where I placed my
heat embossed sentiment from STAMPlorations
then framed and popped it.
Finished with some Liquid Pearls 
in front of the house and pearls
beside the sentiment.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! 
Check out all the details HERE.


That's it for me today.
Don't forget to pop over and see 
what my Team Mates created
then come join in the fun this month.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in.

Just 'Hello'

It's everyone's Favourite Anything Goes Challenge at
Addicted to Stamps and More
Here's my take.
and a close up of the shiny dragonfly
I went CAS here and if you look closely at the
ornate dragonfly from Fancy That you will see
I have cut it out from  a scrap piece of glossy paper
which was inked up with Brusho's and cling wrapped.
I chose where to cut it as I wanted to show of the
wings and tail in different bright colours.
My background has a very light smooching.
Popped up my frame which was cut from
MFT Peek a Boo die. Added the dragonfly
and finished with a sentiment from
STAMPlorations Feathers 2.

Pop over and see what my Team Mates
have created and come join us.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.
