Just Us Girls Trend Week

 Today's post is for the New Challenge at
it's Trend Week and Hosting is Sue choosing

After several attempts and choosing the wrong dies
my card came about by accident.
I was die cutting the main flower for another card
and the penny dropped - this would look great
as a stenciled background!
So you will see two cards in quick succession
with this same flower. I have only recently got 
Tim's Wildflower Stems #1

Both sides of stencil - one for the inked background
the other some nearly dried up crackle paste.
How easy it was to use that die as a stencil!

and a close up

Items used are
Watercolour paper/white card base
Tim's Wildflower Stems #1
Kitsch Flamingo Oxide Ink
Lindy's Alpine Ice Rose 
Crackle Paste
Art Alchemy Indian Pink Wax
STAMPlorations Sentiment
Memento Ink
Head over and see how my Team Mates
created their projects and come and have fun
with this weeks Trend.
Thanks for visiting.

Inspired by Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Popping in here quickly for the
with these gorgeous Mood Board colours.

We need to take at least three elements from the board
and of course I chose the colours as one.

After checking it out to see what I could
 incorporate in my card, the first thing I noticed was 
the lovely big monstera deliciosa leaf
and it happens to be in my favourite
SU Botanical Blooms Stamp/Die Set
So of course the flowers are part of my minimum elements
as is the leaf hiding at the back.
A bonus here was the Designer Paper I used
matched perfectly which I used as 
the background for another element.
Added a simple sentiment and 
some tiny stamped flowers to the side.
My big gem is another element as it is a circle.
There certainly is lots of inspiration  in that
Mood Board. Thank You Enfys for a 
Super Fun Challenge.

This was a nice way to relax after finishing off 
some lawn mowing.

You are 'Amazing'

It's time for our New Challenge  at The Sisterhood of Crafters
and we are looking for
Anything Feminine and  must Include Flowers
How easy is that! We all love Flowers!

I thought it a perfect time to use a few of my
bought flowers.
Background has  some random stenciling
and distressed edges.
Floral arrangement adhered in front of
some pieces of bark from my yard, cheesecloth 
and art stones. This was attached to some
brightly coloured DP to match, then a
scattering of coloured pearls and
finished with the sentiment.
Head over and check out what 
beautiful floral cards the Sistahs made
and head into your craft den,
create your feminine floral art
and add it to the Gallery. 
Look forward to seeing it full
of wonderful flowers.
Thanks for visiting.

Merry Christmas!

 Time for our February Challenge at
Our theme is to use Blue and Silver.
Such lovely softness!

My background was created with
my go to Lindy's Magical's then has 
iridescent medium sponged with a baby wipe
for more silvery shine.
My ARTplorations Christmas Tree stencil
was then smothered with the 
iridescent medium and texture paste
and allowed to dry overnight.
This was then attached to a
patterned metallic paper
slightly popped and finished with
a simple inked Merry Christmas
and a few pearls to complete.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and hope to see yours in our Gallery.
Thanks for visiting.
