Latest altered box

Used the same base colours as the last one but this time there are more layers of colours and textures. Made this one for a friend's birthday to hold all her sweets. lol

Have a great day and keep dry.

Skipper here, don't you love my pink toes! Not bad for a girl of 17 years old. 
Purrs to all my furry and no  so furry friends.

Cats Meow set

I love this cat set of digital images 'The Cats Meow' from Beccy Muir. You can find the images for sale in Beccy's Place shop and more inspiration on Beccy's Place blog

The box was made fist created the background paper with Brusho crystals and then panels were added to the painted box. The cat image was printed and coloured with alcohol markers and pencils and added to the top. Really good box to put a bit of chocolate for a friend who had a rough day.

The card was another simple creation. The image was printed and coloured with pencils and then dry embossed. The background was also embossed with the same folder and some gold pasted added to it.  Love the expression on the cats face.

Cat's Meow set

It's time for the release of another wonderful set of stamps by Beccy Muir from Beccy's Place. Today I am highlighting her 'Cat's Meow' digital stamp set. As always you get the black and white images, sentiments and coloured images in the set. 

If you have read my blog, you will know that I love cats (and dogs) and  my ginger girl is a huge part of my life. Getting a set of adorable cat images to play with was just so much fun. My first project using the Cat's Meow digital stamp set is this 8" x 8" canvas. The first step was to add some texture with a stencil and texture paste. Once that was dry I used different colour of sprays to colour the background. After that I added more bling with starlight paints and stencils. The cat image was printed and coloured with pencils. To frame the cat I added stencil detail and raised dots using Enamel accents in white. Added various dies cuts and resin flowers to canvas to complete the project.
Really had fun getting messy with this canvas.

Do take a look at Beccy's Place blog to see what the other members for the DT have created for your inspiration.

Screen Sensation first projects

Have been watching the shows about the Screen Sensations kit and finally gave in and bought one. Got it out today and had a play. These are my first three attempts at screen printing. First one was done on the green 12x12 card and then the textured cotton bag and then white A4 card. The bags I intend to use at Christmas.

Really please with how well it printed and get it set-up for printing was very easy. The only drawback so far is the cleaning up. It can get messy getting  all that ink off the tools and screen. Ink does seem to go a long way. I have been using a small pot of the black I bought to try on my stencils. 
Will play some more soon.

Trying new products

Recently purchased some Imagination crafts Starlights textile paints and finally got around to having a good play. I also bought a few of their stencils, which have been used on this bag. The bag is from The Works in Royston. The paints work so well and they are really easy to apply. Love the sparkle you get from them, just a shame you can't get the full effect from the photos. 
Have a great weekend.

Birthday card for hubby

Can finally share this card with you. Took me ages to make and hubby does like it. The stamps are by Sheena Douglass and the stencils are by Imagination crafts and Club Scrap. The texture paste and glitter paste are from Imagination crafts. Used glimmer mists for the background. The images were coloured with Inktense pencils and glimmer watercolours on top. Also added gilding paste over the textured areas. Had fun making this card.

Clean and tidy craft room

In my tidy craft room today, I made this topper to go on my notebook. It was fun just having a play today with lots of different mediums. The topper started life as a white piece of card. It was inked and various stencils and glues and glitter and paints added to it. The stamps used are by Club Scrap which I have had for years and only just inked them.  Why is it that the more complicated your background the simpler it looks? 

My 17 year old baby girl  (Skipper) doing a bit of yoga this afternoon. Don't think I can do this. lol

Part of my tidy craft room. Even managed to get my desk cleared so I can actually use it again. First time in years I can actually see the floor and the desk!!! lol
 Have a great week.
