Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card.........Charming....

Hello peeps how are you all? For those poorly I wish you all better real soon. This is actually a scheduled post as I have sooooo much to do before the hospital..........mainly cleaning & DT work & a few bits for Jake for school.......can you believe how quick these hols have gone!!
Anyhoo's today of course is time for the new challenges over at Crafts & Me Challenges & this week is us Rockin' Rubbah Girlz & the lovely Trish has chosen the theme which isssss........
USE A CHARM.
Yep as long as there is a charm on your creation then bring it along & join in the fun.
I have inked up another beauty.......she was so glad to see some ink bless her.........

Yes this is the other image I coloured the other day on Kraft card lol. This image is 'Belle of Bon Adventure' by Jasmine Becket-Griffith exclusive to Crafts & Me Store.

Beautiful seam binding ribbon , pretty lace & wooden heart are all from my stash as well as the charm.....I think I may of gotten the charm off Ebay......maybe!! The chain was actually silver & I put some Memories brown ink dye on it & then dried it on using my heat gun..........MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE TO COOL BEFORE TOUCHING.........IT GETS VERY HOT lol.....I can assure you lol.

The fancy edge I used a WOJ border die. The flower I crocheted & put a paper rose with inked edges in the centre & also attached some white pearl flowers at the side.

This is now in my Top 5 fave stamps, she is fabulous to colour I really enjoyed colouring her.
The image has been coloured with Prisma pencils & added stickles to part of her dress. I made a frame around her using Deckled Oval dies & then used Lacy Ovals for the bottom layer & painted it with TH Brass crackle paint.

The card is made from A4 white card. These had a special on over the weekend on A4 card so I stocked up not sure if the special is still on peeps.
Paper I used is Bo Bunny 'Timepiece'. The sentiment is 'Inspire beauty in all that surrounds you' & I cut it out using a tag die I've got & added string.

Well thats it peeps I'm hopefully gettting my cleaning & washing done & waiting for Mr Postie deliver all my bank hol goodies.........well you gotta take advantage of the sales dontcha lol.
Please pop on over here to see my super duper teamies creations they are soooooo talented. We look forward to you joining us this week.
Tatty bye & thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate it.
Squishy huggles to you all xoxoxoxo
Challenges I'm Entering............

Welcome on my very long absence
Holiday trip lasted a little longer than I planned
Now I hope the longer I'll be visiting your blog regularly
Certainly I have a very large backlog, I will try to catch up
The work is beautiful, made everything very carefully and beautifully matched.
I really like your work.
