Shabbychic !!

Hi  Crafty Bloggers it's me again with another post this week !! I have been having fun crafting today.

I have gone all shabby chic today with my inspiration from this stunning digi image from from FairyD's store . I have added some colour to this  perfect pencil drawing. It's great to help with shading as you can colour over the already shaded areas !! There is also a gorgeous image of a scent bottle. I think I might have to get creative with that one too !!.

I have painted these chipboard elements with white crackle paint and distressed them around the edges with peeled paint distress ink. I added a touch of flowersoft too. I had a curly rose from WOC which I took apart and added some more flowersoft and a wee pearl for a different effect.

I used some floss to tie this wee chipboard tag to the bag. I figured it would be worth a million pounds lol, well best friends and gorgeous bags are !!! The little poem and price are computer generated on my pc and printed.

I used lots of seam binding which I have twisted and also made this little bow.

I also painted the large curly roses with a dab of crackle paint and added stickles .

Rainbow & Challenges !!!

Hi Crafters/Bloggers

Well it has been a pretty hard week. My beautiful cat Ari has been missing for 4 days so I am a wee bit sad and heart broken. I am so grateful to my local community, to the kids who have been ducking under fences and looking in sheds for me and to the local shop for putting a poster in the their front window !! I am so blessed where I live the people are fantastic. He is so unique and so beautiful I think he has been borrowed / taken. So please keep all your fingers and toes crossed for me. ! It's amazing how these wee furry suckers can have an impact on your life . I have been lost all week at work . Sorry to be sad but it is really getting to me !!

Okay let me tell you about my crafty adventure this week. I have won some stamps from the Bronshop, I guessed correctly that WOC are now going to supply to Australia how cool is that !! . I made a topper ( for now ) with " wonderful Tilda " from the new gorgeous " Rainbow Collection" with an older stamp  - teacup , for her too sit on !

How much fun were these lovely locks to colour !! This reminds me of when I lived in Surrey, England and we used to go to a posh beautiful tearoom for cucumber sandwiches and scones with cream and jam, yummy, and we would hold our wee pinkies up in the air lol when we were sipping our tea from the china cups !!

I have added purple and lashings of white lace, beautiful Calla lilies and white roses, not to mention loads of stardust stickles !!.
