'Black' is Back

It's my Saturday Post so  you know it's time for
this weeks Just Us Girls Challenge. Bobby is our Host.

I knew when I saw the Trend I wanted to use
a favourite SU Set - Botanical Blooms.
It's a simple design. The hardest part was arranging
my floral spray. Luckily I have Glad Press and Seal
where you lay it down on top of your composition
and gently lift it up and it is all together ready
for you to glue together.
I used SU papers as well as basic black and white
and added some gems to the centre of the flowers.
Pop over and see what's in store Here
with our Guest Vicky and the Gang
and come join in the Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week by doing so.
Thanks for popping by.

An Easy Peasy Pour Card

I have an 'easy peasy' CAS card for the Acrylic Paint Challenge
over at CAS Mix Up

Happy Birthday to
and Thank You for the amazing technique challenges
you give us each month. 
I did an Acrylic Pour at a Craft Show way back
and I had leftovers so quickly did some smooching
and cut out my CUTplorations Flutter Zen 1 and 2 dies.
Added a gem then attached to die cuts from
Uniquely Creative Cross Stitch Nesting Arches
which were slightly popped.
Finished with a die cut Birthday Sentiment,
 some tiny STAMPlorations inked hearts in
Memento Eldenberry
which just seemed to finish it off nicely
and attached to white card base.
Unfortunately I couldn't get a decent photo showing
the Arches so here is A close up!

My Mix is Acrylic Paint, Acrylic Pour Leftover,
Stamping, Die Cutting, Gems.

Thanks for popping in today.

There's Beauty in 'OLD'

It's time for our Photo Inspiration at
and it is a 'ripper'
(Aussie word meaning good, fabulous etc
or another bonza! Couldn't help myself.)
I decided to concentrate on that old vehicle
and mine is a ute! Certainly looks like it is.

I started with my background using 
Magical Powders (of course)
in Canna Lily Burnt Orange.
They just make them so quick and easy. 
I then added a mix of crackle paste and Taunted Love Teal
  through a stencil to give it a Patina look - just like the photo.
Stamped my  'ute' with an old Gina K stamp then smooched.
Added Art Alchemy Waxes for added colour.
Framed in brown and popped in front of die cut
and waxed cogs.
Sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker.
Adhered to brown card base.
Here's a close up

Thanks for dropping by today.
Don't forget to see how my Team Mates
were inspired by that gorgeous photo.
Hope to see you in our Gallery this week.
