Lady of the Sea

Hi there, we have a gorgeous new release from Aurora wings this one is called Lady of the Sea

and there is another version where she has the most amazing wings called Guardian of the Sea
 If you pop across to the showcase blog you can see the amazing creation my teamies have produced.

Ive been playing with AquaTint Inks this week and that is how I made the background.
I'm sorry but I have misplaced my list of copics used to colour with, if I find it I will edit my post, I think it must be in that "safe place" that is so safe Ive forgotten where it is.

Silver wedding and DT Call

Hi there,
 Firstly Happy New Year
Secondly, Sorry for being a Bad Bad Blogger,
I just don't Know where the days go at the moment.

I was asked to make a Silver Wedding card for a friends daughter, so I've made something a bit different for me, and I must say I really enjoyed it for a change.

It's made with silver mirri board, centura pearl white card and assorted dies,
I'm really going to try and be a bit more frequent with my posts, I'm working with some new products from Crafter's Companion which I can't share yet, but I'm loving them.

There is also a DT Call going on at Aurora wings , a great opportunity to work with an amazing artist why not try your luck. 

Back soon x

Owl Spirit from Aurora Wings

Hi there, what a bad blogger I've been just lately, my gorgeous fur baby Mickey, had to have a lump removed from his groin, and because of where it is his stitches keep popping, then he got an infection, so last time they put some dis-solvable ones in and they haven't worked either, it's a full time job watching him 24 hours a day as he wants to rub himself on the floor, it is certainly a good job I work from home cause I don't know what I would have done if I went out to work. He looks so sorry for himself in his lampshade collar.
Anyway, here is Mitzi's new release Owl Spirit and you can get it from the Etsy Shop
or the Aurorawings Digi Shop

I coloured her with copics and Spectrum Noirs
Hair BG2,BG3,BG5,BG7

Little Kitsune Anko New release from Aurora Wings

Wow, I can't believe it's been 11 days since my last post, where does the time go.
Mitzi has been busy, she has provided us with this gorgeous little lady
She.s called Little Kitsune Anko and you can purchase her HERE
If you pop across to the Aurora wings showcase .blog. you can see what all my teamies have made, 
you will certainly be amazed.

I decided to colour the image up in four different colours and  make a screen.
The papers I've had for about 10 years, they are made of some sort of fibre, in real life the gold colour really shines. For the bottom of the screen I used a labels die and a border for the top.

I die cut a tree shape and trimmed it down to fit, then attached these little resin flowers with a diamante in the middle of each one.

My sister used to sell these fan charms in her craft it would have been rude not to buy any.

Didn't think this one needed much, so just attached a tassle.

This is a knot I made using Mizuhiki paper cord, If I remember rightly this is the Daki Awabi Musubi , Double Clamshell, it's also one of the easiest to make, I must admit I was a bit rusty it's been years since I have tied any knots and it also took just as long to find my box with the cord in, if you could see the state of my craft room you would understand,
I will get my colours down after the weekend, i have so much paperwork to do.

Danny's Birthday

Hi there, I have a clean and simple card today, it was my nephews birthday and I always struggle  with a subject for them, I decided on Mr Roboto from Tiddly Inks this is a great image.

I fancied doing a fairly clean card so i chose to use just grey and blue as my colour scheme.
These button dies from Crafters companion diesire button box die seemed perfect, the paper is from My Memory and a rub on sentiment to finish.
