Alice In Wonderland

Good morning all and I hope that you have as beautiful morning as we are having here. Well I promised I wouldn't leave it so long before I blogged again an hey ho here we go. This is a canvass that has been I work in progress for ages and suddenly inspiration hit me late last night and so I set to and put the finishing touches to it this morning.x
To make I backed with paper mania paper and the quotes at random which I printed from the internet. They are from Alice in Wonderland. I then painted over with opaque snowflake paint. I then used a Splodge away stencil and rubbed picked raspberry distress ink through. I drew round the joins with a white pen and then sealed with decoArt soft touch varnish. The edges have been done with picked raspberry and stencilled at random with black soot. Next I glued the lace on. The Alice In Wonderland images are from Suzicrafts Fandangle range and made by Splodge away. They were covered in black Gesso and the white spots were made by dipping the end of a small ball tool into white paint and the dotting at random. The flowers were made by glueing together oddments from my stash and then spraying with Dylusions inks in black and bubble gum.. When they were all glued to the canvass I went back in with the Splodge away stencil and black soot and filled in gaps.
Deep breath!!!!!! If you have read all this thank you for sticking with me. Lolx

Well life is pretty hectic at the moment and car poorly and in garage so public transport it is!! Must go so hope you all have a wonderful day

Happy Crafting

Just Some Lines

Summer Fun
Well hello bloggers and followers. It has taken me a long time but I am eventually back on blogger. I know everytime I blog I try to promise myself that I will blog more often and I never do. I have to say in my defence though that one of the reasons is that I havent had anything to share with you as most of what I have been doing has been DT work that I am not able to show yet. I have however made a couple of cards for people which I am holding in reserve so I have no excuse not to blog at least for the next week. Can I also say that I really do appreciate all of you who take the time to visit and make comments. It is what it makes it all worthwhile.
Today I am sharing with you my DT card for Crafty Bloggers Network. This week sees the start of a new challenge which is being sponsored by Just some lines and you have the chance to win some digi images just for sharing your work with us. The theme is Summer fun and the above card was my piece of inspiration.
To make I made an octagon card from white card and then an octagon frame from lilac pearlised card. ( I have a board that I make these on as no I cant draw octagons)I then made another octagon to fit the centre from Spodge Away easy ink card and transfered the image on. this was coloured with copic pens and wink of Stellas.when dry I dusted with two shades of distress ink and added the buttons and sentiment which is a dylusions one. To complete I use a pearl maker pen to make my little pearls around the edge..
Why not have a go and join in the challenge. We love to see your work no matter what level of crafting you are at. You always stand a chance as the winner is generated electronicly.
