Oooh.......I didn't think I was going to make it at all this week. My camera decided to to talk with my computer - it's been a bit antsy for a few weeks. On Sunday communication broke down all together so first thing this morning I took it to the camera vet. They will try and order another wire but have taught how to cope with it using the disc.
That was most of a day gone and now I'm just uploading my card.

LHOSM...................Use a Sentiment !!


Our challenge this week at LHOSM is

I've used the little Tilda with Rouster, I've had her for ages but only used her once so as it is almost Easter I decided to use this one rather than the usual ones.  I've coloured them with Copic Markers.  The flowers are a mix - I think I should start listing these when I received them so I can give the correct details, as at the moment I haven't a clue which sort and size I can give details!!

Materials and Tools
Images: Magnolia Tilda with Rooster
Papers: Simon Says Stamp White cardstock 120lb,  Simon Says Surf Blue
Dies: MFT Formal Flourish Die, Memory Box Pippi Butterfly, Magnolia Doohickey set

Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves

with this great prize

This week we are showcasing Crafter's Companion Spectrum Aqua Markers Essential and Floral and then my Tim Holtz Bird Crazy arrived and that was it - playtime began, sandly it didn't end for the next 2/3 days!!
I coloured all the images with the Aqua Markers and decided to make them backgrounds.
I played around at using the Crafter's Companion Aqua Markers to use background - I took
Ranger Water color paper paper and painted a coat with Gesso. I used the required markers
 a palette, added water on the paper and blended with a brush or and finger. I then stamped on the Lots of Dots stamp with various shapes and sizes. This was great fun and all turned out somewhat different!!


I couldn't make my mind up which to use so - I used them all and have made box (well almost made a box) to used as a gift set.



So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
