New challenge over at Our Vintage Affair

OOooh we have a new challenge over at Our Vintage Affair which I thoroughly enjoyed creating and hope you will too!!!  Its all about TRIANGLES!!!

So after pondering what to make I came up with an idea to make a bunting for my craft room door!!  Took 4 hours to make but I love it and funnily enough so does the hubby :O)

I used different Melissa Frances paper which I have had for ages, some white ruffled ribbon, ready-made roses in brown, beige and burgundy, used my new Spellbinders Pennant dies that I got a while ago whilst in Whitby, my new T!m Holtz Rosette die that I got from Grimsby Crafts and set to work.  And here it is....

Well hope you like it and it has inspired you to have a go and joining in with us.  If you pop over to OVA you can check out our the DT's gorgeous creations and also our very talented GD for this month - Paula Tidman.

Thanks for looking

Stampotique Challenge - Red, Yellow and Orange

Over at the Stampotique challenge blog their theme,  along with using their own Stampotique stamps, is to use the following colours:- Red, Yellow and Orange. 
So armed with Dylusions stamps, Dylusions Inks, paper towels and little paint top lids I started working on getting messy!!!  And this is the background that I came up with.. a little doodling was added too...  Certainly need practise but for a 1st attempt with the inks and paints not that bad....?!?!?!

Karin & Eric were stamped onto Neenah paper and coloured in with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador.  I masked off Erics right hand on the original stamped image and then stamped it again and cut it out as I wanted it to look like he was holding Karins hand (sweet eh)!

Thanks for looking  xx
