Romantic Ribbon & Lace

The minute I saw the title for this weeks challenge over at Polkadoodles I knew exactly what collection I would be using! Rose Budd its just so ...... 'Mr Darcy'........ *swoon*

Ive only used the smallest piece of actual lace as I think the spellbinder dies I chose  have a lacy effect too and a sweet little bow ribbon.

The digi  was coloured with a combination of alcohol markers and pencils. The papers and sentiment are all from the Rose Budd collection too.

You can see the texture on the flowers that is because they were printed onto canvas paper then cut out and layered up they were quite difficult to shape as the fibres in the paper are already broken down so I lifted the petals and shaped them using silicon glue. A cutting file flourish & leaves were glittered up to add a little touch of sparkle. I do hope you like this weeks creation.

All Things Kraft

I've not had the greatest start to 2015 so am currently meeting myself coming back & trying to catch up with various outstanding projects. It's great to get back into crafting and my DT duties with Polkadoodles.

Its inspiration post time over at the Polkdoodles Challenge Blog and this fortnight the subject matter is 'All Things Kraft'. I adore using Kraft card and  combining it with the wonderful Winston CD.

I love to distress the kraft papers in this collection, I backed it with an embossed piece of contrasting card and wrapped it around with some rafia. The tag is also in the collection I just nipped it into my graphics programme first to add the text. The bear is coloured with my Graph'it markers (bear, 9405, 9401, 9400, 3210, 3230, 3245, cake, blender, 9100, 3140, 3150, 3180, 3190, hat, 9101, 9102, 9103, 9104, flame, 3130, 1180, outline 7125) and a touch of glitter.

I do hope you can find the time to pop on over and join in with this fortnights challenge.
