Sleeping Mouse

Good morning everyone, well first of i must say sorry for being such a bad blogger.Sometimes real life slows you down from doing the things you love, and on top of that i had a really bad crafters block, which i hope i am slowly getting over. Anyway less of the boring stuff and more of the crafty stuff :)

I decided to buy myself a new stamp for christmas this year and wanted something cute for a change, so i bought a few from a lovely site called Elzybells Art Stamps i have to admit i found it really hard to decide which one to buy, as they were all lovely. I just have to add that the service was A1, the delivery was very fast. So i would highly recommend this site if you love cute stamps.

The stamp i have used is Sleeping Mouse along with the text stamp night before christmas.

I have water painted this stamp and added some white iris glitter for some christmas bling.

I still think it is missing something, maybe some ribbon around the card spine, let me know what you think.

Thats it for now, i look forward to reading your comments Love Donna :)

Under i have stamped a lovely flower from Crafty Individuals, to stamp this i have used a versafine ink-Imperial purple. To finish off i added a few dragonflies from personal impressions using versafine-Majestic Blue.

Sunday Stampers Challenge Week 10....Going for green

Hello everyone, hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Been hectic for me as i had a hard training session at karate. So it was nice this morning to get a few hours of crafting in.

The challenge this week for the Sunday Stampers is going for green. Which has been chosen by Lesley as it was her birthday. (Hope you had a lovely time Lesley.)

Ok here goes, for this challenge i have yet again made a Atc. For the base colour i have used Distress ink-peeled paint then sprinkled with water. I have then stamped the background with one of favourite stamps at the moment from Paper Artsy Squiggly Minis. I stamped this with Versafine-Spanish moss. I then inked up a piece of chipboard with Distress ink - peeled paint and stamped a small flower from Crafty Individuals, i used a versafine ink pad- Olympia Green, then i went over the top with the squiggly mini using Spanish moss. As i did not have any ribbon to match the shades i inked up a white ribbon with Olympia green. To finish off i stamped a flower from the Dawn Bibby range. using a contrast of the same colour inks.

I hope you like it, and thank you for visiting my blog...why not have a go yourself. Donna xx

My Time To Craft Challenge week 6

Hello everyone, well first of all HAPPY EASTER to you all, hope you have a lovely one. I have managed to do the My Time To Craft Challenge which this week is quotes and sayings, well i don't really have many stamps or anything really with quotes on, so i hope i am allowed to use a proverb :)) For this challenge i have used some butterfly background paper from a kit, i cut out 2 of the butterflies from the left over paper, then edged them in Tangerine from the petal point fluid chalks inks. The proverb i used came from K&Co proverbs to go. I then inked that up blending Tangerine and Yellow Citrus petal points again and then edged in Red Lipstick petal point. I hope you like it, thank you for visiting my blog. Donna xx
