Shabby teapot!!


Today I am posting a card that has been great fun to make, mainly because it's not a huge job like a mini album or a video tutorial, just a nice small project where someone tells me the guide lines and I can just go for it .....Yes I'm going to make 2014 a go for it year!!!!
My daughter has been requesting lots of albums for sooo long now I just can't put her off any longer!!!

Anyhow, lets get back to my card.  The main colours are white and cream. Firstly I coated the card with matt medium and then used gesso over a stencil to give some nice texture.  The edges are inked with Ranger distress inks to bring in a bit of definition.  For the butterfly, a textured cardboard was used and then a scrape of gesso and glossy accents on the edges with a hint of glitter added for a bit of sparkle...{You can never have enough sparkle!!!!).
Also added was a die cut envelope and some flowers, buttons and ribbon to set it off.
Do you like my knitting? I haven't knitted for years and it is a hard task doing it with cocktail sticks!

Hope you like it...I am entering it into the challenge at The shabby tea room You should pop over and see the site.

 Have a good week

Hi every one,

Firstly I must wish you all a very happy new year.

It's time to take down all those christmas decorations, and oh dosen't it look bare when they are gone.  It just seems like yesterday we were putting them up, where does the time go!!!!

Well we have another year to look forward to.....great new products and new companies to try out and all those things you have meant to try out and  haven't got around to yet....perhaps make this year the time to do them.

There is some sad news, I have finished working with the Visible Image design team after a year and a half of great fun.  The design team are a scream, especially Sue who should be in comedy!!!! I will miss them.  I wish them all good luck for the coming year with whatever they do.  Helen and Mark who own Visible Image are the nicest couple you could meet and they work so very hard.  I'm sure this year will be a very good one for them.

Now to why I have posted are some pictures of the album that I was commisssioned to make.   I have a you tube video on my channel (sadly it is not a tutorial this time).  It will show the album in more detail if you are interested.

And here are the photos......



Have a great crafty week......
