Vintage Floral Butterfly Tree Canvas

Hi all

This is a Canvas I have created. I've been working on it over a few weeks now. I initially decorated the base of the canvas with various papers, inks, paints, texture paste and script stamps; and painted the tree but was then stuck on what to add to it. I left it for a while whilst I came up with what I wanted to do. Then I decided I wanted some bigger flowers, and found some Prima flowers and added some additional mixed media elements and smaller flowers I already had in my stash. Along with glitters and diamante embellishments. I also die cut a fancy flourish for the corner (not that you can see much of it, oops) and a quote. I did two layers for the die cuts and glued them together so that they were thicker.

Well here's a picture of it

 I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out. 

This is a video which shows some of the elements in more detail. You can even see the glitter sparkling. (Sorry it's a bit shaky I used my phone. It's the first video like this I've taken of my makes).

I have decided I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Well that's it for now, as always thanks for stopping by.

Take care all and happy creating

In the Night Garden

This card is for an order I have been given. The lady wanted a card with an In the Night Garden theme and Igglepiggle for her Grandson. I found images on the internet and decoupaged the bottom pannel and added peel offs to this. Igglepiggle has been mounted onto white card which I have embossed using my dotty folder in my cuttlebug and then matted this onto co-ordinating blue card stock. The base card was from my cardstock stash which I have made a 21cm square card with. I then added peel off stars to finish the card off. Thanks for looking Hugs Rachel

Moonflower digital delight

Hi I'm sharing a card with you today. This one has been made with a Moonflower Digital Stamp Image. I used the July Kit and Clowder Markers Colouring class for this one. I just love the classes that Alyce creates for us each month. You can follow at Your own pace and whenever you have some free time. It doesn't even have to be in the same month. She gives great tips and I am pleased with how my colouring is progressing.

Well here's the image coloured with my spectrum noir markers. I think the image is beautiful and will certainly be using her for more projects in the future.  Right now here's the finished card. I hope you like it. I'm pleased with how it
