Fantasy for the Weekend...

Hi and thanks for your company this Friday morning....hope it is treating you well....

Did you manage to watch any of the Hochanda shows yesterday? I had a bit of a early glitch with my recorder but all sorted out today......remember Barbara is on with Clarity Stamps and Stencils tomorrow 6-7 and the Groovi on Sunday 10-11....sky 663.....FreeView 39..... FreeSat 822.....

Today I just wanted to remind you of the current challenge over at the Sweet Lilac Blog......

The theme is Fantasy.......and remember you could win a hamper of the wonderful flowers...also the winner is chosen at random...

Here is some inspiration for you...

And here is a photo tutorial of how are created it...

I started with a piece of Gelli card and stamped the Toadstool stamp...from Claritystamp...

Next came the large moon mask....

And some Distress Ink blending....now you know how I love blending with these wonderful inks...

Before taking the mask off , I spritzed some water on ...and patted it dry with some kitchen towel.

Then I added the Wee Fairies...And some flowers ...

Plus some magic stars...

I used Spectrum Noir pencils to add colour to the toadstools...

And then the most beautiful flowers from Sweet Lilac .....these are from the gypsophila range...oh I do love them.....plus some bakers twine.....

To add some sparkle...I used Stickles Glitter Glue....I like to put a small amount onto my craft mat and then I pick some up and paint with it....I use an old Wink Of Stella brush...one that is empty but I love the brush nib.....so it is perfect for this...

And the finished design

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Bank Holiday Weekend...enjoy whatever you get up too...remember to keep smiling.....

Love and Hugs....

  3. Another beautiful card and your instructions are the best , oh so inspiring . Thanks again . I was loving create and craft here in the USA because I could watch reruns for a whole week . I hope hochanda will eventually enable us to that also . I can watch it live on my iPad but because of time differences and schedule it is difficult . Have a beautiful weekend . Jan
