Going teal and aqua!

Hello friends!

What a crazy Easter weekend! I'm back today to finish up the second part of my share for Green Tara.

This is one of my favourite photos of youngest. Isn't he adorable? I think hubby and me are really very blessed to have him and his brother; both of them have been such joy to us. 

Some close-ups:

Double-stamping with my Technique Tuesday word stamps - first in aqua mist then with black ink.

The beautiful Damask flower paire with a tutu flower and apple blossom. There's also a berry stem chippie from Blue Fern Studios which I find just perfect for accenting floral clusters.

A sweet little bicycle chippie and title from BFS. I misted the title words with Lindy's Stamp Gang's Bachelor Button Blue and heat embossed the bicycle with two different coloured EPs to give a tarnished metal look. 

And that's all I have for now. Until then, happy crafting!

My first official OTRS post!

Happy Good Friday friends!

It's the start of the long weekend for many of us, so if you've some time on your hand why come by Off The Rails Scrapbooking and check out the challenge for this round?

The rule is to use the following sketch and colour palette:

Lovely colours for Spring aren't they!
And here's my take on it:

Some close ups:

Using a title chippie from Blue Fern Studios. Beneath is the cherry blossom stencil from The Crafters' Workshop.  I applied texture paste over and painted on the flowers and leaves using paints from 13@rts.

Love this little bicycle which I altered by mixing two different colored EPs from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

The Shabby brick bits from BFS, which I left bare as the earthy colour complemented the floral colours.

The prize for this challenge is a $15 voucher from Flourish with a Bling, so remember to visit the blog for inspiration from the rest of the DT and take part!

I shall be seeing you very soon!

You Shine - for Green Tara

Hello friends, so glad to be back to share a layout I did for Green Tara
I missed a post in March because the boys and myself were sick, so there was plenty of catching up to do.

I used gorgeous papers from Blue Fern Gardens for this. The rose lattice and envelope motifs were fussy cut out and used for layering. I used plenty of Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and Shimmerz Dazzlers in the background. 

A white lace from Green Tara and the title chippie from Blue Fern Studios. For the butterfly metal piece, I brushed on some gold paint from 13@rts.
