The Paper Players colour challenge 503

 Two posts in two days!  

That's very unusual for my much neglected blog.

However, I noticed a colour challenge over at 

The Paper Players using Magenta; one of my favourite colours and I just had to have a play.

During the CV limitations, I've challenged myself to use stamps, stencils and techniques that I've neglected over the past couple of years so I fished out a stamp set which has not seen the light of day, for years.

It's from Stamping' Up, "Flower Shop"

I stamped the flowers on vellum and embossed them with White embossing powder before coloring them from the back with various Distress Oxides.

The background was dry embossed with Couture Creations, "Swiss Dots"

The stems were die cut in navy from two different 

Tim Holtz die sets, 664163 &661808

I appreciate you calling in; thank you.

Freshly made sketches challenge 447

Hello creative friends; it's been ages since my last post, but I've been busy crafting for a friend's fundraiser and not able to share those cards just yet.

Today, however, I was inspired by this simple sketch from

Freshly made sketches. 

I used the  Tim Holtz "Tattered Florals" die to create the flower.

 The floral paper is an old scrap of "Vivienne" by Basic Grey.

The tartan paper is from Lawn Fawn.

I typed the sentiment on the computer.

Not sure of my way around this new blogger just yet, but I hope to gradually transfer all my widgets across from the original.

Thanks for calling in today; I hope you are keeping safe and well.

Warmest wishes
