Once upon a sketch - HOME

Yeayyyy - on holiday this week so had time for some much needed scrapbooking with Once Upon A Sketch - so love their fab sketches that they keep coming up with.  Their theme this month is HOME and what it means to you - the photo of my GDs was taken in their garden - they live in the grounds of Hubbards Hills where reindeers roam around all year round and this was a day when we were out looking for them.  They wanted to show us the little ones that didnt have big antlers!!!!!!

I know I have scrapped this photo of the GD's sooooo many times but I love this one of all 3 of them - very rare you can catch them all together now to be honest.

I started off by using a round-the-edge punch on white cardstock.  I gutted the white cardstock so I could use it to frame the photo and also use as edging on some of the papers.  All papers used are from the Chanteuse collection by Kaisercraft and .  All edeges were inked with Ranger Vintage Photo.  I added a die cut Doily diecut which was a bit fiddly but worth it in the end, made a large flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die which once made up was sprinkled with Fairy Dust, added a couple of rhinestone flourishes, precut butterflies and here it is....

Thanks for looking

WOYWW - 149

This is something that I've been meaning to join in for quite some time now and today is the day to show off what I have on my workdesk  for WOYWW- I've cheated a litte - I've actually just wiped off the black ink off the desk :o).  Working on a few tags and canvases with Dylusions stamps and inks and really loving it.

Well off to sunny Scarborough now for some camera practice

Thanks for looking

Playing around with Inks

Been a funny old week - even though we are on a weeks break its been a little manic and all our well-laid plans have gone out the window due to me and my new 2 week old FIAT 500 just not getting on (fraid me and twin air engines just dont get on well at all).  

Armed with a old pizza box I set to work using all different colours of inks, dylusions stamps and then the best bit, colouring and making them all up to look nice.  And this is what I came up with...

It needs some ribbon or wire so it hangs but I pretty much love it - even at its ugly stage I still liked it but then that was probably down to knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it and how I wanted it to look.

It even meets the following challenges

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Creative Monday - Anything Goes
Crafting when we can - Things with wings

I have a few more tags to show you but they can wait til tomorrow :O)

Thanks for looking
