Vintage chic

Hi all

Another challenge from Outlawz - in the Paper a la Mode challenge

Paper is a free printed page from the internet.  Card body is made with curious metal chocolate -
unfortunately discontinued :-(
Nestibility cream card is also curious metal 300gsm - cut from an off cut.

Rose stamp is a Penny Black brush stroke stamps.

Banner is from a clear stamp set- not sure where the sentiment is from.

Roses are ready made flowers and the leaves are punched out from a green off cut.

Thats it for now....i am busy with a really large canvas - will post progress pics if I don't get too carried away

Have a great day!

Tag You're it over at Outlawz

hello everyone...

we had a wonderful sunny day in Cape Town today... but it's still chilly... winter is definitely here..

Last week Saturday's challenge at Outlawz was to create a tag.

this is my contribution.............. the background of the tag is a typical Tim Holtz background.  I stamped a selection of stamps in versa watermark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used about 4 varieties of distress ink to distress the background and used the same colors to distress the swirl and flower so that they would blend in together. Of course my card would not be complete without my glitter...LOL.. this is the stardust dry glitter from Ranger with glossy accents 

the flower and swirl is a Sizzix Die and the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz selection of sentiment stamps by Stampers Anonymous.

the dragon fly is from a Hero Arts / Sizzix collaboration of stamp and die sets. Centre of the flower is a bead from a broken necklace . All beads and embellishments have been attached using my all time favourite Glossy Accents.

Have a splendid week coming.
and remember.... to.....

Keep it Krafty!

Outlawz Clean and Simple 2 June 2013

Hi there

Yep... I have been really good and have managed to do quite a few Outlawz Challenge Cards over the last few weeks... admittedly... I have been having fun exploring the CAS side of Shamela...LOL... not easy.. when you sometimes don't know when to stop... or when you not sure if what you have on your card is enough.... 

Anyway... here is this week's challenge card for Outlawz 2 June 2013

Oh yes.. I made two cards... cause when this one was done... it didn't work for me.... so.....

I tried another....LOL....
