hey guys ,
new challenge time at 

this challenge i decided to just show off the blooms, a little side challenge to myself 
to not use an image.
i think its quite sweet and would make a lovely mothers day card.
i chose a pretty soft pink paper to matt the card, then cut some foliage.
i used some florist tape to wrap nd extend the flower stems to be able to make a bouquet, and finished with a pretty ribbon iv had in my stash for ages;

hope you like it

so come play along we love looking at all your makes

hi everyone
its time for a new challenge at 
Delicious Doodles

the theme this month is 
anything but a card

i have covered my new notebook

i love this image, its so pretty

i printed some pretty paper and covered the book.
the image is coloured in copics and prisma coloured pencils.
i edged the image in some fibre trim, then made some seaweed with the same trim, 
i had some little tiny bits that where the weeding from die cuts and the reminded me of coral and star fish, so i coloured them and added them too, 
 i finished off with some pretty lace along the spine, and found some tiny tiny hearts that where in the die waste box and added them as bubbles from the sea horse.

hope you like it .

come play along :)

you can win 4 images from the etsy shop and be our guest designer for march!

morning everyone
hope your all well on this cold wet day
lets brighten it up with a new 
Petal Lu challenge

as always its anything goes
i have up cycled a soup tin

i have a whole bunch of stuff laying around on my desk or on the sides and shelves 
so im trying to get it all organised and looking pretty
( well ill try lol)

so i took my tin and covered it in cling film, took some  kitchen towel and 
using pva squelched and shaped it into a branch, leaving it to dry overnight.
once dry  i removed it from the tin and the cling film. 
next i covered the tin in pretty paper.

i painted the branch in brown and a little green acrylic paint.
once dry i added it to the tin with some cosmic shimmer glue, 
fussy cut a few butterfly's to match the papers

then i added some of the beautiful Petal lu flowers 

quite pleased with it :)

hope you like it guys and come play along

well here we are 2017!
and my first make of the year is for the new 

im going to come clean and admit im not in love with this one, 
 i think its the background is too dark and busy,
i loved how she was coloured, but its too delicate for the background but to be totally i was running out of time , and the idea looked so much better in my head lol

i will redo this and come back with it but as today was the new challenge i have gone with it for now,
so come play along and watch this space lol
