Tsunami Rose DT 2nd August creation

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland. 
We the DT are so spoiled with the gorgeous papers we have been given to play with so today I would like to share with you an altered canvas that I have created using the gorgeous Mechanical Error Printable Journal kit designed by Daisy Collin Owner/ Designer of Tsunami Rose. 





Here's how I did it!
I took a 6x5 blank canvas and covered it with a selection of the papers from the Mechanical Error printable Journal Kit. I colored in some MDF letters and heart and let them dry before adding a little glitz glitter glue and peel off letters. I colored in white metal corners and flower and added them to the canvas. To finish I have embellished with a hairpin, mulberry flowers and ribbon bow. 
Pop on over to the store to see the fabulous range of printables available.

A quick play with a Visible Image stamp

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland. 
Recently after seeing a card that my lovely friend Debbi Taylor created I was inspired to just sit at my desk and have a play. 
Here is a card that I created and I hope that you like it! 


Here's how I did it!
I took an 8x8 card blank and covered it with brown textured card. Next I took some pearly textured card cut it to size and popped a butterfly mask from Mica on it. ( I atatched the mask with masking tape to keep it in place).I inked the whole thing with Ink from Stampin Up and used darker around the edges. I decided to use a stamp as the focal point after being inspired by Debbi and it is from the Love to create set by Visible Image.
To finish I added buttons to the corners and made a bow from some lovely wide chocolate satin ribbon. 
I really enjoyed playing and creating this card so a big thank you to Debbi for the inspiration.
