Spring Cleaning Anyone?


Been playing with my Brother CutnScan sooo loving that machine!!!

Have used the cutter to make my mats for this card the butterflies were Dies.

This busy bee is Mayde Dust Bunnies which is a Lacy Sunshine image which you can get Here
just right for a spring card and makes me feel that I really should give my place a spring clean. 



Luckily I found this great poem on the internet 
Dust if You Must
Sorry not sure who wrote it but this is just one of the verses and now I feel better that I didnt 
succumb to the urge to spring clean this weekend lol.



Hope you like

#207 Animals at Fab n Funky


Hi Peeps we have a new challenge at Fab n Funky Challenges

ANIMALS

this week we dont want to see any people on your creations.


Our sponsor this week has a great selection of animals
I chose to use 
from 
FITZTOWN

and try something just a bit different- although this turned out more different than I expected

I started by masking the tiger and brayering the background I was really pleased with the brayering but the mask stuck to the tiger and spoilt the image, just as I was ready to throw it in the bin and start again I saw the back of the card which I had placed on my splodge mat to brayer on and this was the ink it had picked up from the mat and happy accident I loved the effect. I printed the tiger on top and using a cottonbud coloured the tiger with ink.

I placed the card onto some Tim Holtz backing card which I lightly sanded.

I have used a sentiment by Digi Darla for my card with one or two dies

(a very different card from me - not a copic in sight)

I went for the less is more white on white look
and really love how it turned out.
