Happy Birthday 'Roar'

It's a New Month and the start of our challenges at
Just Us Girls and a New Guest.
Welcome to Fran Wing 
We start with Word Week and Hosting is Nancy


I chose to feature a Lion inking in black 
and clear embossed.
This is where my plans changed
going with a colourful background 
using Tim's Oxides Black Brusho's
and Lindy's Screamin' Banshee Black
which really shows up with the blue shimmer
and hard to photograph.
Die cut and framed in black.
Sentiment and Lion are from Happy Little Stampers.
Popped onto black card base.
Head over and see what mammal our Guest Fran
and my Team Mates chose to feature
and we would love to see yours
in our Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week and
in the running to be our Guest in September.
Thanks for dropping in

Flowers are Nature's Blessings

Today's post is for the New Anything Goes
Mixed Media Challenge over at 

Craft time has been hit and miss lately with lots happening
on the farm. Lucky what I made came together easily
and I even managed to take some photos along the way.
It wasn't what I planned but time wasn't on my side -
so going with a CAS Mixed Media make.
Here's a quick run down on how it came together
and the products I used.
Project is 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 on heavy watercolour paper
Lindy's Magical's Victorial Bouquet
Cowabunga Copper
Nuvo  Solo Flare Shimmer Powder
Ken Oliver Copper Liquid Metal
AA Rust Brown Matte Wax
AALL&Create Stamp #292
" Washi Tape #1 #9 #11
Carabelle Studio Flowers
Tissue Paper 
Matte Gel Medium, Gesso
Black Card Stock.

And some pics!

The background with Magical's and adding washi tape

After random stamping around the edges
I inked the flowers on tissue paper and coloured.
Diluted gesso was added before adhering
the flowers with gel medium.

Adding the sentiment and adhering to 
black background to complete.

Head over and see what inspirational Mixed Media Makes
the Team created. They would love to read your comments
as I do and we would love to see you play this month
and add to our Gallery.
