Good evening everyone I am back again for the last couple of days I've been on making something for my daughter Natalie. I've just been doing little bits here & there but tonight ploughed into it. I've got a tutorial to do for Monday its been planned for Crafts & Me so tonight I wanted to get this finished. Now as most of you know Natalie is severley disabled she requires 24 hour care & is totally dependant on me & hubby for all of her care. Well we are going to give her bedroom a complete make over. Dad is building a full wall to wall wardrobe to fit all of her stuff in, which is a lot lol. I ordered her new pink tv yesterday & we've even found one of the brackets that they have in hospitals so you can watch tv in bed....you know the ones that have the tv & phone on them. I have wanted one for ages cus Natalie hasn't got the best eyesight but I just thought of getting her a larger tv but then we found a store on the internet that does them for £300 which I thought was a really good price so got it straight away....I got sooooo excited I can tell ya lol. Anyway I am the one who does all decorating, designing the whole kit & kaboodle, dad does all the building & electrical work.....he is soooo good at it. Well now that I craft I wanted to make her a few bits & bobs for her room. So I'm starting with a door plaque. Her bedroom is gonna be pink & black, I want it girly for her but grown up with a touch of class as well if you know what I mean lol. I've always wanted a 4 poster bed but she has be in a bed similar to an hospital bed, the electric ones to higher & lower so I'm gonna build her a canopy make her drapes & things...it will be fab.
Right as I'm waffling again I am gonna show what I've made I have followed a sketch for it to combine it with a challenge cus I really like the sketch & I thought it was perfect....here is her bedroom door sign...
I have used 'Pillow Talk' Simply Sassy sugar nellie I know I have used her before & I should be really inking my others but this is the most perfect stamp for a girls bedroom dont you think. Also my daughter is a sassy girl lol. You can get Simply Sassy girls from here. The gem swirl was actually pink & blue so I coloured each blue one black with a black copic. The image has also been coloured with copics & then a couple of layers of heat embossing to help prolong the life & protect it. I even managed to get it look like a feather pillow could of been burst with little bits of white on the image.
The papers are Magnolia I brought them especially for Natalie, I got quite a few papers in pinks & a pink & black one cus I have a few alterables to decorate. The tag I made myself & printed it out, inked the edge & heat embossed it. The wooden heart is from my stash I just painted it white then inked the edge with 'Worn Lipstick' then stuck a pink gem love heart on which I got for crimbo, I also attached a pink flower to the side.
Here is some of that lovely seam binding this has the words on 'Love is all we need'.....which is perfect cus no amount of riches can replace love......as long as we have love then we have all our riches!!! I made 2 bows then glued them together. The button is card & I heat embossed it then threaded some bakers twine through it.
This is actually a small canvas that I decorated up the frame around the edge I made with A4 card & distress inks to make it look like wood, I also sprayed it with Crafters Companion spray & shine to give it a subtle sheen. This is the 1st time I've done this I was just playing about earlier in the week & this is what I came up with.....I used quite a few colours of distress inks lol.....but I'm quite pleased with it it does look so much better IRL.
Well this is the last piccy I'm so sorry about the long post. I do hope you like this. I was so nervous about doing this as I just want it to be perfect for Natalie who hasnt even seen it yet as she is fast alseep in bed which is where I'm going as soon as this is finished lol.....didnt realise it was so late....or early...???
I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments I have received on my last 2 cards you are all fantastic I really do appreciate every single comment you leave & you all really make my day & make me smile... so from the bottom of my heart 'I THANK YOU' <<<
