Happy Tuesday ~ Post number 2

Busy, Busy , Busy are you tuned into Hochanda??
If your not you are missing all the lovely goodies and demo's
Today it's the turn of Stampin' Unicorn
This time I have decorated a shadow box frame

I ummed and arred whether to remove the white apperture but decided a nice paper from the 6 x 6 Fourni pack would work.  I stamped several flowers and leafs from the stamp sets Dotty about Flowers and Blossom These were embossed , then watercoloured. The Butterfly is from Daisy Friends Stamp set and was stamped, Embossed and layered up

I finished of using the scrabble tiles from Bits n Pieces 6x6 Paper pad, and popping on some Glossy accents

I hope you are liking my samples I really have had so much fun making them

Polkadoodles on Hochanda

Sooooo excited after the incredible show on March 1st, I have been busy making samples for todays shows on Hochanda at 10.00 and 2.00
This time we have been playing with the lovely Stampin' Unicorn goodies
I have made this card using the lush A4 toppers card, using also a sheet from the Fourni 6x6 paper pad as my backing
I have layered up the flowers and cut randomn bits out of the card
I so love the vibrant colours, I could literally play with the A4 forever , and you will see many more projects over the coming days using it

Thank you for looking

Happy Snowy Sunday, where has spring disappeared to??
For those that know me know I am a great lover of oxides, this was a little experiment.
 A good friend of mine visited last week and she brought some of her lovely cards for me to see, On some she had used the normal distress inks on photo card.......Now this got my head whirling would Distress Oxides work? Out came my photo paper and the first inks that came out of  my box - now I normally would sit awhile to decide my colours but as this was an experiment I just went for it. Amazing results I loved it , but I took it one step further and on half removed the oxides
I hope you can see the difference on B where oxides were removed.....
I left it to one side but then decided I needed to decorate it - It was the perfect size for a postcard, So using various Stamps, Black Micron Pen, A few Sequins and some Sequin waste my postcard was made

I totally loved what came of an idea that may or may not have worked

I can see this becoming a regular make

Fairy Magic

Happy Saturday
So much snow again in the UK oh dear does that really mean I have to keep warm and cosy in my craft room? Such a shame (she lies)
I have been trying a few new ideas these last couple of days some have been automatically binned but there are a couple I quite like and have stored for future use
I saw this new image the other day from Digi Stamp Boutique
Normally I use stamps with my Distress Oxide inks, more for ease really but I loved this digi so much , I really wanted to make it work
I used very pastel Distress Oxides I am going to make another but go really bright
I removed some of the oxides with splatters of water , her wings were painted with sparkly watercolour paints
I also love the border that came with the Fairy, how lovely is that (hurry to the store its on offer at the moment)
The sentiment used is from another  set from Digi Stamp Boutique Black Floral (sorry there is no link but I can not see it for looking I'm wondering if its a retired set)

Happy Friday to you all
I hope you have a good weekend
I am here to share with you a dragon fly tag ~ I was really dissapointed with the photo quality but loved it so much I still wanted to share
I used Distress Oxides for the background
and then heat embossed the dragon flies (and Sentiment)

I then got some water colour paints and added a little to the dragon flies to make them pop
