A challenge or 3!

Hi There!

I have played along with a couple more challenges. The first LO is a combination of Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch #2 & Bird is the Word. Teh word is 'heart'. This is the skecth

& my take on the sketch (I posted this LO in my last blog post for the Graphic 45 design team call)
I have used the gorgeous February Limited Edition MCS kit which was full of the romantic Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings collection

A close up of some Prima goodness on the page!
The flowers & bird cage are fussy cut. The masking was done using some honeycomb mesh & some versa ink in Laurel Leaf
Some hand stitching & more prima flowers

I have used a few different meduims to give  this chipboard scroll circle a distressed look. Firstly I painted it with gesso, then once dried & painted some acrylic antique white painte all over. Once dried I roughly inked the edges in versa colour ink pinecone. I then used olive ink & roughly smudges colour unevenly aroun the circle. Then get some texture paste on your finger & roughly smudge the paste where you would added texture. Once dry dab your pinecone ink pad on top of the smudges of texture paste. Finish off by using a coat of Tim Holtz Ranger Crackle Paint in Rock Candy. Use a heat gun to help make the texture past bubble & assist crackling!

This next project is my entry for the Websters Pages February Challenge. the challenge was to use sparklers on my page. Thanks so much to Heike at Scrapz.Biz for supplying me with some pretty sparklers!
I have used Websters Pages Ladies & gents & Csountry Estate, Websters pretty petal, Websters sparkler
The mirror folds down to reveal some journalling

The black lace border is a Websters Pages digital brush printed onto a transparent sheet & then fussy cut

Thanks for looking!
