Altered Chalkboard

Hi Bloggers,
I'm back again today to show a little project I've finally got around to doing, in December I went over to Melbourne to spend Christmas with the family and when I go I always have to do some shopping it's a must lol
I found a chalkboard in a shop called Typo and my first thoughts were the things I could do with this.

First I lightly sanded it back and then painted it with gesso, then I used some purple mixed media ink, then I used 2 stencils with my most favourite product texture paste, once that was dry I then went over it with iridescent medium using my finger, it gives a real shine pearl finish, I then used some diamond stickles once again rubbing it in with my finger.

Once that was all done it was time to decorate, my gorgeous embellishments came from Tracy over at I used a little bottle for my chalk holder and the duster I painted with mixed media ink stamped it with a butterfly then used some embossing powder over it.

Hope you like it :)

Here are some close up shots

Easel Card

Hi Bloggers,

Back again today to share with you all another card, this time a easel card, the yummy flowers came from Tracy over at My2Angels, I used a La La Land Crafts fence die and ran it through my big shot with the Tim Holzt wood grain embossing folder I also did that with the tree die. 

The pearls are Kaisercraft strips from Sassy Scrappers and the ribbon is from Bizzy Becs. I used a little tag distressed with Tim Holtz walnut stain ink and stamped a little sentiment using vintage sepia ink.

Hope you like it :)

65th Birthday Card

Hey Bloggers,

I'm back today to share with you a 65th birthday card I've had the pleasure of making for a lovely lady 
I thought of doing it simple but elegant, the lovely roses and bling buckle came from My2angels which you will find the link on the side if you would like to visit Tracy's online shop she has some gorgeous goodies and a lot of them are handmade by her.

The ribbon is just a Kaisercraft ribbon which I got from the lovely Olga over at Sassy Scrappers and her link is also on the side and she too has amazing goodies for all your scrapbook needs, the bow I found in my personal stash, and it just used a little happy birthday stamp down the bottom.

Hope you like it :)
