37th Wedding Anniversary and Papermill Direct DT Call



Good Afternoon Everyone

I know I have not been around much lately, my Mojo is still on holiday
in Cuba, really wish it would come home.
One thing has given me a bit of a kick up the proverbial backside, is
Papermill Direct have a DT call, and I have used their card since I started
my crafting journey so thought I would have a go.  My OH says I have
more card than they do in the shop, but, we all know, we crafters never have
enough !!!
Here is a link to the DT call

As it will be our 37th Wedding Anniversary, I am killing two birds with one stone, so to speak,
so I am using this card as my Anniversary card to my OH , so please don't tell
him, he will be shocked enough to get one as normally I am too busy making samples
for Christmas in July.
Thank you for visiting it is always wonderful to read all your comments,
Good or bad they are all welcome.
Hugs

Nick Roberts

Thank you for visiting is it very much appreciated.

Butterflies

Good Morning Everyone,

I know I wasn't blogging for a while but had an idea, and when
that happens you just have to get on and do it lol.

I have used the Butterflies from the 2nd Collecton of Leonie Pujol 
and beCreative Alcohol Markers.  An Spectrum Sparkle Pen in  Black.  Also an awful lot of
 Pebeo  Drawing Gum.

I stamped some of the Butterflies, then masked them with  Drawing Gum and kept 
repeating the process until I was happy with the look, or until I got fed up lol, which I did
I just wanted to get on with completing it.  However it took me nearly a day  and a
lot of arm ache to rub all the Drawing Gum off lol. 

I then draw around the Explore Mask from Leonies 1st collection. with a fine liner pen.
And coloured with the Alcohol Markers All the black is coloured with Spectrum Noir
Sparkle Pen in Black.. although it is not showing the sparkle on my photo sorry.


This was made with Leonie's and Nick from Barnsley ( Bulgaria ) inspiration  to try something
a little different. 
I am quite pleased, but, the only thing I would change is using the very dark purple in the
background would have prefered   a lighter colour I think. 

Thank you for visiting

If it goes wrong DONT throw it away !




Good Afternoon Folks
A bit dull here in Kendal today perfect for having a play in my craft room. 

I am suppose to be getting ready for my holidays and not doing any crafting,
but somehow new crafty supplies keep getting delivered and of course 
I need to see if they are ok. !!

As for the title, I printed this lovely Julia Spiri digi image months ago, somehow, it printed
with a blue tinge not black, but thought it would be ok and a bit different.
However, when I came to use Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers the blue ink started to spread,
so just to see what it would be like I kept going  and throw it once I had seen what it looked like , but I actually liked the look.  So  all the very pale blue is printer ink
and the purple and slate ( around the image ) are the Aqua Markers  I also used
The Sparkle Pens from Crafters Companion


I had also been playing with the new Cosmic shimmer Pixie Powders, oh they are gorgeous
that is what  the background  is made from. I also covered the flower with the powder.

 I used a sentiment and butterfly stamps from Leonie Pujol 2nd collection  

I hope you like my bit of a mishap

A little something



Hi Folks

Our very good friends Sheenagh & Dave,  moved to a new bungalow last week
So I have been having a play making a present for them.
As I have only been playing really told her to stick it in the draw if it doesn't go lol.
I used a lot of 
beCreative Wonder Crystals and Wonder Tape
Also a mask from Leonies Pujol first collection of stamps, masks and stencils.
I do love using them and they do get a bit addictive lol.

Once again mixed media is still out of my comfort zone, but do enjoy playing, not to keen
on the mess it makes though.

There is also a card I made.
Thank you for visiting.
Hugs
