Hello and today a project using some new dies and stamps that I have recently purchased.
The stamp set is JustRite Clear - For All You Do Vintage Labels Three along with the matching die set.These are clear stamps which I tend not to use a lot but these stamp beautifully and you get a very clean and crisp stamped image. I stamped this using a gold ink pad then highlighted some of the stamp details with a Sakura Metallic browm pen to match the sentiment in the centre which was stamped with Versafine - Vintage Sepia. I then added some pearl drops in the corners and for the centre of the flowers with Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden.

The centre panel was then mounted on acetate and then onto a square aperture cream card.
I will be entering this card into the friday mashup challenge 110 which this week is using bakers twine or monochromatic.
Once again take care and hope you can join me again soon

I chose this fab soccer (or football as we say) image which was fun to colour in with my promarkers and added some embellishments such as the word  GOAL which I die cut using fun foam and Spellbinders "Donna's Alphas".

Hello it has been a while but just back from a fabulous two weeks holiday in Hong Kong and Singapore.This was the second time we had been and took our daughter along with us who could not get over how clean and beautiful Singapore was and the people so polite and friendly.We visited the wonderful botanical gardens with the largest orchid gardens in the world and now and then will share some of my pictures of these wonderful flowers.
Now onto this week's challenge over at OSCC and we want you to add some glitter to your project this week.
Our sponsor for this week is the wonderful milk and coffee which is a cute little digi image shop so do give them a visit.

Once again the design team where given some beautiful images to choose from and I chose this one which is called Tiffany Fairy and added glitter to those wonderful wings on her.I do hope you get the chance to play along with this week's challenge as we love seeing all of your creations each week.
When we left Singapore it was in the 30's and now back in the UK and I am here with my jumper on and thick socks on my feet and it is MAY can you believe it.
