GDT at the Ribbon girl

Morning Lovelies, how are you?
I am popping in this morning with a special project.
I was contacted a few weeks back by Mary from The Ribbon Girl asking if I would like to do a GDT spot for them, of course I jumped at the request. I am a huge fan of the ribbon girl shop and goodies.
I chose to join in for their colour challenge, and the colour of choice was 'Green', one of my fav colours and perfect for this time of year when we are getting into spring.
I chose to make a Mothers day set consisting of a card and embroidery hoop art.

Items used were, vintage seam binding in sea moss green and cream, Celery green ruffle edge sheer ribbon, olive green zig zag lace, ivory pearl string, 'Duchess' vintage style brooch, small white orchid flowers, cameo, floribunda green roses, large ivory white rose buds, prima treasures bird houses.
Have a fabulous sunday

Inspiration post for Saturated canary

Good morning, its my turn for a post over at Saturated Canary blog.

Its been a bit mental here and its only going to get busier! March is one crazy mad month for me, all starting with a special birthday on Saturday. I really do not feel like I am 40, in my head I am still that mad daft 21 year old! Lol

Anyway enough of birthdays etc, I have a card to share. I have used the beautiful Sara on my card. I have coloured her with copics and prisma pencils. The flowers are from The Ribbon Girl as are the ribbons. The lace is from ebay, I dont know where the papers are from as they were out of my scrap box. The bingo ticket, clock, ticket stub and clip are all Tim Holtz.

Before I leave, can I ask for some advice, does anyone know how to 'unfollow' a blog? Blogger seems to have changed its settings and the simple option is no longer there. I have several blogs that I wish to unfollow and I no longer wish to see them in my blog list.

Have a great day

Hugs

Mixed media canvas

Morning lovelies, thought i would share a new hobby project that I have been working on lately

I have taken a like to making mixed media canvases, this is one I made for a recent customer, I am delighted at how it turned out.

I first primed the canvas with white gesso, and then added design papers using modge podge. I then built up the layers by using shimmer sprays and inks, followed by stencils with texture paste.

I then used the picture as the focal point, using flowers, lace, metal charms etc, again coated with gesso and shimmer sprays.


Thanks for popping by,

Hugs

Anything goes at MDUC

Hi lovelies, I am a bit late with this post but I am still having problems with blogger. I have tried all the hints and tips that everyone suggested but it still deletes my pictures and my posts, or it wont let me write a post. The only way I can post is by using the blogsy app on my ipad, but unfortunately I havent figured out how to link stuff yet so please bare with me.

Ok info session over, I have a magnolia card to share, shock horror!! Lol The wonderful team at MDUC have decided that this will be our last challenge for the year so I decided to join in.

I have used an older tilda stamp for this card, as I have a soft spot for so many of them.

Here is my card, I hope you like it and join in with our Anything Goes challenge, and we will see you all fresh and raring to go in the new year.

Hello :-)

Hiya lovelies, just thought I would pop in and see how everyone is? I have been a bad blogger of late but things havent been the best health wise and I am getting very busy with my facebook business page.

I am still making cards just not as often as I used to, I miss my design teams but the break is doing me good and I hope I will be able to return to them in the new year.

My shabby chic diaries are doing very well and I have been making lots of tutu wreaths for sale, here is one of them

What do you think? I love them they are so girly :-)

Here is an example of a shabby chic diary, each one is unique and the covers are removable meaning you can change the diary every year

I will be back tomorrow with a card as its my turn for the inspiration post over on saturated Canary.

See you then

Love and hugs

Kat
