 Hello everyone,

I have a bit of fantasy to share today..

I have had this unicorn in my stash for a long while, it is a resin one and I sprayed him..
with my distress sprays..

Made a background, sort of mystical night sky..

There's my Unicorn
 and this beautiful wired ribbon which matches perfectly and tied into a bow..

Added some splatts onto this, as it dried it went added the gold

My elements all together..

then a blast from the past, punched out purple and turquoise flowers..
they matched the flowers in the unicorns mane..

So flowers and bows already..

Time to put it together..

It all went well, no bad language in the making of this card..

A bit of dimension, but not too much..okay, 
there was a lot, but the lady that just bought it didn't mind..

then sentiment of her choice went on and here it is all done and mystical..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone....

After I made and adjusted my tag, I had made those panels in that lovely turquoise colour..

Here they are...

and decided to cut cone flowers..

and Hummingbirds...

and gave them pretty jewel eyes...

The leaves I added black onto the edges as the greens were just seeping into the cardstock and they looked no different..

The hummingbirds...made with the same panel scraps after the flowers were cut, just added a bit of yellow to their chests..

The cone flower centers, cut in white and coloured with markers..

All glued together with only one section dimensioned with foam square..

The leaves [to me] still needed attention so they got splattered..

This paper from my stash got a good splattering too...

More scraps and this time butterflies..

I had to colour their legs as I cut them all out in the teal added the black body and their legs were sticking out all green..

Mmmm..potential background here...

and time to find the right place for my flowers and birds...

Love the dimension...

The FRIEND die was cut 4 times and layered together,
 them coloured from the bottom darker to lighter...and added gorgeous sparkly gems..

And there she is all pretty and turquoise blue..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

I made a tag for Tag Tuesday..last week, but I missed it, so this week they say Add a bow, so I did and I'm in time..yay!..

and it all started with this panel that I made with water paint and lots of water..

Then add my stencil and soft mousse...

But got carried away and had so much of it
 I watered it down and made these panels too...

Such a lovely colour and sheen....

Back to my tag...trimmed it and round cornered the corners...

Then found this leftover card from a Tonic Studio kit..

and die cut this flower stem and extra flowers in glitter cardstock..
this set is from Concord and 9th..

Corrugated card stock for dirt and some place to hide the stem bottoms..

Added the glitter flowers to the stem flowers...

a beautiful Hummingbird and all set to ...too late!!

So new challenge bows and I added a button and NOW all ready to go..

Thank you so much for stopping by

 Hello everyone,

Monday morning here while writing up this post, it is cloudy and cold and I love cardy on just a T/shirt and trousers and my fluffy slippers, I'm not that brave or silly..

I have a card I made a wee while ago..and a fresh puppy picture, of course..

This background was smeared with texture paste, left to dry, then drizzled with
 Water and Distress inks..

There's a closer look at the textures..

I die cut these tulips and layered them up..

Added some inking for shading..

I lovely big sentiment from Simon Says, stamped with Wild Honey Distress ink,
 then embossed using Clear embossing powder..cut out with matching die..

Time for gems...

Great little set just keeps going and going..

Dimension shot..not too much..

and the finished card..6 x 8..

Time for puppies...4 days old, putting on weight and still very verbal..
and sooo cute..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..
