Crafts & Me Challenges - We Are Back and With A New Artist

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? I would like to say thank you soooooooooo much for the lovely comments on my last card & balloon. Mum & Dad love it so much they are using Hot Air Balloons as a theme for his new nursery ;0)

Ok onto why I'm here, well Crafts & Me Challenges is back.

Ok this first challenge is so easy...........its very rare I can even make a card without it........
LOVELY LACE
...........see told you it was easy ;0)
I have to say I think that balloon sucked all my mojo cus I struggled with this :0( I went with grey tones for the image & touches of violet on her lips & nails, her wings & the background was a mixture of greys & violets. The image is 'Shh Now' by Zindy Nielson & she was coloured with Copics.

For the shape I have used one of my Go-Kreate dies & the gorgeous paper is Maja Design Vintage Spring '2nd May' & distressed them & inked them with walnut DI.

The top left corner is a Whimsy sentiment & a Shabby Bark Heart. The 'Ornate Cameo' frame I made with Delight Clay, I also added Shabby White & Aged Wine Fran-Tage to it. The super gorgeous butterfly is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey, its my fave butterfly die. It also got the fran-tage treatment.

I made a bow with lilac seam binding & added this gorgeous charm which Teresa will be adding to her store very soon. The swirl is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey & I've Fran-Taged it ;0)

The image has corrugated card painted with Gesso & 'Cheese Cloth' underneath it. The gorgeous lace is from my stash & the flowers are from WOC

Well thats all from me, sorry I'm running late I forgot to schedule it & mornings are busy with Natalie & we've also got our Payton staying ;0)

Hope you will us in our monthly challenges, pop on over to here to see the other delicious creations & see the new challenge blog.

Tatty bye & thanks for stopping by mmwah
