Less is More challenge

This weeks challenge at Less Is More is Paper Piercing - and I managed in time - I did do last weeks challeng bust too late to enter so I have shown it at bottom of this post.  I have a long way to go and much practice before I produce anything I feel happy about!!!!

The papers are Hero Arts Flower Dot Pattern  coorordeinated with the Out of Print Collections by Basic Grey. It stamped with Colorbox  Frost White ink and used a Ranger Heat Gun with an American Crafts Zing White Opaque. I used Distress inks with Tumbled Glass and  Dried Marigold  to colour the image.
My Sentiment is Paper Smooches Pretty Phrases
I have used the paper piercing around the edge of the papers and the label.


This one is last weeks challenge at Less Is More  - will show it as I will hopefully look back in the later of the year and see how much I have impressed - or not as the case ill be???

Simon Says...................Anything Goes

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining using an Arrow and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-

This week the challenge is .......


We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week, you don't have to use any of them, but if you have them we would love to see them 

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I used the gorgeous Tim Holtzs Vintage Shabby Paper Stack and used his Tattered Flowers - I added some of the flowers with Net Crinoline with some of the layers.
 I used Simon Stamps Harrington Vine and used Simplicity Lace - I'm not sure I have linked the correct lace - I really need to make a note when I buy  one.
The Tim Holtz's Distressing tool around the edges and I use Spellbinders Standard circles and Scalloped circles for sentiment coloured with a Stampendous alphabet. 
I have just noticed another little pearl in the flowers - ooops - I don't now how he has escaped in there!!

Everybody Art Challenge

The theme this week at Everybody Art Challenge is tag and I used it as a bookmark.
I decided to use one of my favourite Stamps Happen image called 'Fairy with a Balloon' and used Copics for colouring.
I use Spellbinders Nestabilites Label 11 for the top of the tag and the base with Martha Stewarts punch Pansy and used the inner part embossed with Cuttlebugs Divine Swirls

The Pink Elephant - Anything goes
Avenue 613 - Anything goes
Card Mania - Butterflies or Fairies - image is called Fairy with a Balloon
Daisy Doodles - Anything goes

I hope you all have a brilliant day while I'm off searching for my missing MoJo - it is probably buried in a mountain of stuff my craft room has become.
