Wetlands Set

It's time for another release by Beccy Muir and this time is a great collection of silhouette images  called 'Wetlands Set'.
You can see what the rest of the design team created with these great images on Beccy's Blog
There is still time to enter the monthly challenge as well.

The background of my card was made with watercolours, glimmer mist, pearl paints and masks. The main image was created by selecting a few of the images from the Wetlands set and  then overlaying them onto a real photograph of a sunrise I took. It took a while to get the sizes of the images and the placement as I wanted. 

Thanks for the visit and I do hope you will visit Beccy's Blog.

Cattleya Orchid release

The new digital image set and papers from Beccy Muir are called Cattleya Orchid Set and Cattleya Orchid Digital Paper Set and can be found in Beccy's SHOP.

The first project is a mouse pad. I used on of the digital papers from the Cattleya Orchid paper set and the sentiment from the Cattleya Orchid image set. All the elements were arranged in Photoshop and then printed onto the mouse pad. 

The first card, I made the background with Brusho crystal and coloured the Cattleya Orchid image with alcohol markers. Used a Tattered lace die to cut out the image. 

For the second and third card, the backgrounds are papers from the Cattleya Orchid paper set, printed onto white card. The images were printed onto white card and then coloured with alcohol markers. I used Tattered lace, Memory Box, Marianne and Tonic dies in these cards. 

Don't forget there is a monthly competition on Beccy's blog and a free digital image for you to use.

Thanks for the visit.

Update on Skipper

Hope you are all having a great Friday. Wanted to update you on Skipper. She had an overnight stay at The Queen's Veterinary School Hospital for a second time and is now back home and doing well. We can't praise the staff of QVSH enough, they too very good care of her both times she was left with then. She is remarkable for her age and they have found that the problem she has been having is due to her back knees caps, which are a bit loose. The good news is her current pain meds are fine and surgery is not needed at the moment. 
Thank you for your concern for my beautiful girl.

Sharing this photo of her bringing back her catch a couple of weeks ago. :)

Purrs from SKIPPER.

Narcissus projects

Beccy Muir's latest release is called 'Narcissus set' and there is also a corresponding set of digital papers to work with the images.  I used one of the digital images from the set, sentiment and two papers from the paper set in my projects. The card was made by printing both papers onto card and then die cutting them. The image was printed onto white card and colours with alcohol markers. For the bottle I printed both papers onto one sheet of card and the image on white card and coloured it with alcohol markers. 

Have a great day thanks for the visits. 
Skipper is doing so much better she is even going out again!

Different project

Hope you are having a great day with all this wonderful warm sunshine. This weekend I did something a bit different. The stool in my craft room was looking a bit dirty,  so decided to give it a make-over. Had this lovely heavy fabric and thought it would look really nice on the seat. Did not 
take long to cover the seat with my brand new electric staple gun. 

As you can see Skipper was being very helpful. She is walking much better now but still not 100%. 
We are back at the hospital at the end of the month. 

Have a great day and thanks for the visit.

New Beccy Muir's release

Beccy Muir's latest digital set is called 'Gnomes in my Garden' and they are so cute. You can find more inspiration on Beccy's blog and the images for sale in her store.

My creations using the images and papers are a card, altered clipboard and a scrapbook page. The images were printed onto white card and coloured with alcohol markers. The papers were printed onto 12 x 12 sheets of textured card. There were many different dies used in the projects. Really enjoyed working with the images and matching papers. 

Thank you for visiting.
Skipper is still doing better but not 100% as yet. We are moving in the right direction. Thank you all again for your kind thoughts and purrs.

God Bless.
