Crafting for all Seasons challenge #93 . Ribbon lacT

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to me little bit of blogland. 
Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Crafting for all Seasons and the theme this fortnight is Ribbon, Lace and Pearls. Here is a card that I have created for my DT place and I hope that you like it.


Here's how i did it.
I used a 5x7 card blank and covered it with paper from kanban that i found n my stash, next i added a rectangle shape of angel hair paper and die cut frame with a smaller fancy frame. The image is Victorian Winter Emily from Lacy Sunshine that has been colored with a selection of  Copics. The sentiment flowers and die cut flourishes are all from my stash with the butterfly being cut from a Cheery Lynne die. There is lace across the centre of the card and self adhesive pearls to finish.
I hope that you like what i have created and we would love to see you over at the Crafting for all Seasons challenge blog. so pop over to join us to be in with a chance of winning a fab prize.

Something different

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland ! Today I would like to share with you something a little bit different from me other than cards, I have altered a small canvas and although I have done similar things before I thought that it was about time that I diversified a little and " played"
So here it is and I hope that you like it.

Here is how I did it!  
5x7 canvas that I painted a layer of gesso and sprayed with purple, gold , silver and pink shimmer sprays. 
I next lightly brushed in layers gold Mica powder through the the Night Owl mask by Splodge Away.
Dream. Imagine. Inspire
The stamps that I used to create these come from the fantastic Visible Image and have been stamped onto kraftwork card with Peach Parfait and Early Espresso ink that are by Stampin Up and were given to me as part of my birthday gift from my lovely friend Debbi Taylor. I distressed around the edges with the Tim Holtz distress tool and fixed to the canvas with silicone glue. After the glue was dry i popped some raspberry and bronze coloured mica powder on the canvas and sprayed the whole thing over once more with hairspray. 
I really enjoyed playing and creating this canvas which already has a home in my daughters room at UNI.
