I love pink and purple but decided to try using purple without making it too girly. I used a Splodgeaway teardrop mask for texture and of course the mat for inking the edges and colouring the card. My fav boy stamp (at the moment) coloured with pro markers and a bat stamp which I embossed and cut out. Some new bo bunny stamps created more texture in the background and a couple of spellbinders dies and some ribbon completed the look
Thanks for looking...
Hope u like it x

Here is my entry for the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge... Flowers.
I am quite enjoying entering these challenges as it gives a purpose to my crafting, rather than making a card and shoving it in a box!!!!
The main image is a digi stamp from Saturated canary and the stamped flowers are Sheenas. A few bits of paper, ribbon, spectrum noirs and of course spellbinders help to complete the look.

Indigo blu challenge

I love indigo blu stamps ( and flakes and the clock and.... Well everything) so decided to enter their first competition as the prize is fabulous...
I decided to cover my new Kraft book rather than make a card.
I removed the front cover and covered using a 12" paper Using the blooming set and the poppy set with some flitter glue and silver flakes I added some depth to the blue paper. I cut out several of the blooming flowers and leaves and using my Splodgeaway mat, distress inks and a little water I coloured the flowers before cutting them out. I edged theses using silver gilding paste and put some glitter in the centres. I then arranged these on the front cover.
I am quite pleased with the result, I hope you are too x .

Steampunk tag

I love the steampunk look but have never really "gone for it". I think I have with this tag, I have used gesso and distress inks to cover a piece of card which I then stamped some words on to. To make the top and bottom I used a Splodgeaway cog mask and some black card which I then painted with black acrylic and rubbed with inka gold I cut some cogs out of hand made paper and again painted and inks golded them. I cut out the pocket watch using cream card and x cut dies. I then coloured each element using my spectrum pens and a gold pen. I triple embossed the gold parts and put acetate as the glass part. The wings were made using a butterfly die which i painted again in black acrylic and covered with black glitter Using chain, charms and some glossy accents to embellish further...
I don't think I have used so many techniques on one project before, I hope you like it x

I made some cards and things using some of the new Splodgeaway masks. I have never been a mask type of crafter, thinking they were only for more "messy" or "arty" crafters than me! After playing with a few I am converted....
I have loved thinking out of my comfort zone and creating things I would never have tried before. I know that to lots of you my stuff will seem plain and boring compared to some of the other design team members, but hey, I like them and who knows, maybe i will get more adventurous x

The painted flowers are all Sheena's and my first attempts at water colouring.
I have used distress inks, craft studio print outs, spellbinders, lots of blending with Splodgeaway mat and lots of cutting out of jigsaw pieces and butterflies....
