Anything Goes Challenge - Pink & Brown

This is a cute Tilda image sitting on a stamped piece of yummy chocolate cake.
Tilda has been coloured with Promarkers and the tag has been painted with organic paints, distressed with crackle glaze and aged with gold paint.

The flowers have been printed and cut, and then dipped in the fantastic Melt Pot to give the florals an enamelled look.

The card has been embellished luxuriously with florals, pearls and gems.

I am entering this into the Anything Goes - Pink & Brown Challenge.

I hope you like it!

Wow, I came across a fabulous blog recently, Daring Cardmakers.  Their samples are great!
I have created a card to enter into their latest challenge......A Royal or Patriotic theme.

A great chance to print some of my fab papers from Craft Artist.
I printed, stamped and distressed some flowers, distressed the vintage Union Jack and sprayed my Mica Mists over the Cricut cut corner.  I finally stamped some sentiments to represent the theme.
Hope you like it!

My First Inky Impressions Challenge!

Afternoon all!
Sorry I have not been blogging for a while!  Well I am back now and hosting my first Inky Impressions Challenge! 
Hop on over to and join in the fun.
My challenge is Flourish and Faux.
Here is my entry:

Cant wait to see the cards which arise from the Challenge.  Its wonderful to see the different perspectives people have on an idea.

This card was done using my fabulous Grand Nesties, my wonderful Inky Rubber Stamp, Raffia, Die Cuts Shapes, etc.  Unusually for me, I didn't pick up the watercolours, I opted for my Promarkers instead!

Hope you like it!

My very first Inky Impressions card

Stampalicious Lili  is my very first Inky Card!  Inky Impressions have some wonderful stamps and they are ready mounted and very deeply etched.  I was incredibly impressed with the quality.  I am loving them!!!!!

I am really enjoying using these stamps.  They work fantastically well with my watercolours and Stampalicious Lili looks great!  I have mounted her onto coordinating card, and embellished with die cut shapes, square doily and fantastic florals.  I have also added some pretty hand crafted mixed colour flowers too.
I had stamped the sentiment and added a pretty charm which is from Inky Impressions too.

I am just starting my term on the Design Team and will soon be doing my challenge on the Inky Challenge Blog!  Keep your eyes peeled for that.  There are some fabulous challenges over on and some great designers.  Go take a peak!

I have decided to enter this card into  Wish me luck!!!!
