Wedding Lay out.....

Morning fellow crafty bloggers, hope you are enjoying these sunny days, had a lovely afternoon sat in the garden watching Zachary play yesterday, hadn't got the energy to join in with him as I have come down with a stinker of a chest cold......I'm going for a record for how many bugs I can catch in a year, I seem to have a week off before the next one appears, guess my immune system is running on over load.
I have had a play with all the new Crafty Individual stamps and paper pad that has just come out, the stamps are great for backgrounds, really nice and large...... check them out here. I wanted to do another wedding Lay out especially as it's my daughters and son in laws anniversary this Sunday.......guess whose got the kids !

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Gesso for the main raised part of the background, the down size of that was it took an age to dry as it remained soft if I used a heat gun, afterwards I used purples and blues in glimmer mist drying in between each spritz.
I then used the backround stamps in archival hydrangea for the main areas and added some stamping in with Melon to add a smidge more yellow that are in the torn pieces from the new Seville background book from CI.

The butterflies are stamped on a page of the Seville book and then 
I added glimmer and gemstones for bling.

Messy Day......

Had a lovely day yesterday at Daisy's Jewels Crafts, I went to a class to make this quirky panel using stencils and stamps from Lin Brown, it's ages since I did a class with her and her style has changed so much from the first classes I did at LB Crafts, I must say that this is so not me, I don't do bright colours but it was fun experimenting with them. We started off making a background using stamps and stencils, I got carried away as usual not knowing when to stop, so I ended up with an owl that looks like he is in a snow storm. I couldn't get the colour right of the background panel so I ended up re painting it again this morning, finally happy with the colour now.

Have a fun filled day

Just a quick post from me today to tell you about the new challenge starting this month at Kraftyhands, the theme is One For The Dads, so with Fathers day just two weeks away it's a perfect time to make a Fathers Day card or Birthday card.
