here in the north.

Today I have a Shabby Chic Card 

My card is a 6x6 square must get back into doing some
shapped cards but I am into square at the mo,
I have used those lovely lemmoncraft papers but used
 a stencil on as well on top and distressed with inks
the paper I have corrugated using a gadget I have had
for years I made the large flower and behind that I have used some Sisal
which is a natural plant leaves shredded. But gives a more deleciate look rather than the hemp

Magnolia Tilda .............with Big Heart

Magnolia Tilda with Big Heart 

Good morning everyone and how are you to day
hope your all feeeeeeeeeeelin good.

 Very warm welcome to a new member 

To day I have coloured my Tilda with distressed inks onto watercolour card.
the background I have used distressed inks to make deeper colour in parts.
Then I took my heart stencil and made hearts all over then moved my stencil over 
a quarter of a inch then covered the stencil with artists structure paste 
to create a shadow effect and raised effect, added a few shakes of diamond flakes to give a bit of a sparkle.
be careful when using these they are like fragments of glass shavings and easily get stuck in your fingers as I found out. 

I die cut little flowers out of Maja papers 
Used seam binding ribbons to finish off with a splash of Gesso
You can find seam binding on my blog shop
Or in my eBay shop 
Just click on the side bar and they will take you their
I have lots of New Hand dyed colours in the 
eBay shop.

thank you for looking 
Have a great day where ever you are today.

Aurora's Wings.......Star Dancer.........

Aurora's Wings Star Dancer

Good Morning everyone Hope your are all feeling good.
well January has gone with a flash.

Thought I would have a bit of a change this week
and trying to be a bit more adventuras with 
some techniques.
The only thing is it's all covered over just a little bit popping out at the side.

I was trying something new with distressed inks and structure gel
I coloured my paper with inks and then applied structure gel mixed with gesso over a butterfly stencil 
It looked really good when dried the inks came through the gel and sort of infused.
But my image has covered over the effect never mind I be trying some more.
I really enjoyed colouring this pretty image by Aurora Wings Digital stamp  and putting it together.

I coloured her with distressed inks onto watercolour card 
The butterflies are joy craft and flowers are WOC
the seam binding ribbon is from my craft shop
or my eBay shop you can click on the sign on the sidebar and it will take you their.
I have some new hand dyed colours on eBay at the moment.
These ribbons are so versiotile they twist and turn where ever you want them to go.

Thank you for takeing time to look

Everyone have a good day wherever you are.

Jules ❤️
