CBN DT Inspiration

Good morning all. Hope  you all had a lovely weekend and that some of you like myself were lucky enough to visit the Harrogate Great North Eastern Paper Show. I had a lovely time and met for the first time a lot of lovely ladies who have been crafty facebook friends for some time. I have to say that I was a tad dissapointed with the stands this time. It was smaller. a lot of companies missing but nice never the less.

Well today I am shareing with you the card I made for the Crafty Bloggers Network mid month challenge inspiration. the sponsors being Imagine That Digi Images and the theme nature. I chose this lovely sheep as I thought it very seasonal as the first spring lambs are now being born. I must apologise for the quality of the photo. Something not right is happening with my camera and the last few photos that I have taken have not done the images justice despite doing some auto correct on them. never mind for those of you that are interested I will give you a quick run down of how it was made. It is an 8x8 card base. I printed image and cut out with die cut and then coloured with pro markers and wink of stellas then dusted with distress ink. I then mixed some silver mica powder with water and dabbed into it with some scrunched up cling film and patted over the top. I then osed the next size up die and cut out with a contrasting Imagine that matching paper. This was then mounted onto another contrastin paper and then black card. I used a sticky back cotton lace to wrap aound bottom of cardand made three flowers with a Tattered Lace die and Imagine that paper. Two buttons from my stash were added to finish. Hope you like it.

Well off to do a bit of housework. Hubby has been sunning himself in Spain for the last week and is home tomorrow so want to fool him into thinking that I have done nothing but housework since he has been away. Haha.

Happy Crafting
