Anyway first of all my piece for the challenge 'get some texture' at A vintage Journey.
This was made starting with TH distress paints swooshed onto my craft mat, water added and a tag some card swoosed through and then dried and DI added for the background. Next I stamped the text - a TH stamp - in sepia archival and then added some cosmic shimmer texture paste through a TH layering stencil.
Next I added the lace and the photograph from a TH paper pad and then set about altering the surface of the TH numbers by adding distress paints.
Here's the numbers close up - no real significance I'm afraid - just the numbers I had left!!! I added the faux tea roses too!
I'd like to enter this into the get-some-texture challenge at A Vintage Journey.
Now onto coffee pot - here my ladies are getting messy:
We were using chocolate baroque stamps, distress inks and making one layer cards by masking. Here's two of mine (green plus purple) plus a lady called Catherines'. They all made great attempts at this and the results were fabulous - Catherine was just a little quicker then the rest.
I would like to enter this card into the one layer card over at allsortschallenge-one-layer-cards.
Finally I wanted to show you all the lovely handmade cards I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday - thankyou to mum, rebecca, jo, sue, karen, Natalie, Linda, Anne, Sue, Jennifer, Mags, Hazel, Penny and Lucy! They're all wonderful cards from such lovely people!!! There's also a mahoosive tryptych in there from Jo and rebecca - can't wait to have a play with that and a really big thankyou!!!!
Hope you have a great Tuesday - I'm swimming this morning then I'll be off to my mums and we're finishing off another sheena card today.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!
