Sometimes we need a little Courage

Hello and welcome to you today.
I'm here with a DT project for 
This month its all about stories and we would love you to share yours with us.

There was a young girl of 25 years old who was told she had breast cancer, her whole world fell apart before her eyes. She went through lots of treatment and thought she had beat it only to find a few years later it had returned and once again she had more treatment but was told they didn't think she would make it. This hit her family hard along with her very young children. She put up a fight and suprised the doctors but yet again a few year later it had come back again but she looked at her young daughters who gave her the added courage she needed to fight and do it all over again. She decided enough was enough moved herself and her daughter miles away from what she knew and set up home by the seaside to begin a new life once the treatments had finished. Since her move her life changed for the better she has had to have a few operations and now has a few health issue's but is Cancer free and very happy and she loves to craft and along the way she has meet some of the most infuluenceable people in her life today and some of the bestest friends who have made her the person she is today.
Moto: Have a little Courage as you can do it.
The Young girl is indeed Me.

Here's my inspiration this month for you.

Here's how I created it:

I added the Mulberry bush paint to the Phat Foam and used it like an ink pad to the stamp Courage sentiment from the Wordblocks #2 stamp set.

I added some Iced Pink Gem paint to some Phat Foam as before and with the Victorian Garden Stamp Set I stamped some of the flowers in both the Mullberry Bush & Iced Pink Gem.

Finally I stamped the Butterfly from the Victorian Garden stamp set and coloured it with a water brush and both the paints. To finish off I added a little twisted string and attached the butterfly with some glue gel.

There with have it. 
Thank you so much for stopping by reading my story and your lovely comments.

Hello and welcome to you today.
Today i'm sharing my DT creation with you for
We are feeling or Spring like over on the IndigoBlu Blog so I couldn't resist using the gorgeous new


First I made a spritz from the New Junk and Disorderly Paint range this one is Stroke of Midnight. To make your spritz use 4 parts water to 1 part paint and if you want it darken just add a little more paint to the mix or a little less if you want it lighter. Before spritzing I masked off half the card as I only want the top blue.
 

I then did then same but with Warm Tan for the bottom of the card. 

I stamped a few of the flowers in black before stamping some more with Olive Waistcoat paint

I also used Leather Corset on some of the smaller flowers. 

I also stamped the stunning butterfly from the set with Stroke of Midnight.  I stamped a few tiny flowers in the same colour at the top of the card. I love stamping with the paints it really is effective.

Finally I added one of the setiments from the set and then mat and layered onto some IndigoBlu Black Stamping Card and attached the butterfly with glue gel.
They we have it a field in spring.

Believe In Love - IndigoBlu

Hello and welcome to you today.
We are feeling the love over at IndigoBlu this month. Seeing my first post of the month was Hearts I thought this time I would go with
 I Believe in Love.....
Do You?



 First I took a plastic ornate frame and gave it a coat of

Once dry I added some Flitterglu to some Phat foam and rubbed it all over my frame.

I then randomly added some Sheffield Steel Mega-Flakes, I didn't scoochy the flake straight away as I didn't want it to go all over the frame.

 Next I added 3 different colour Luscious Powder's with a soft brush. Once I was happy with the mix of colours, I used a scoochy on the flake to bursh of the excess. I just love how the Luscious blend so well together to create other tones.

 I mixed some Clear embossing powder with Silver Luscious powder to create my own coloured embossing powder and then stamped one of the sentiments from Wordblock #2 sets with Flitterglu.
Flitterglu is great for heat embossing as it stays tacky till you adhere something to it even then next day.



Thanks so much for dropping by today I hope you will pop back again soon.

IndigoBlu - Luscious Poppy's

Hello and welcome to you today, its my turn to share my DT creation for

Over at IndigoBlu we are using are favourite stamp.
 I wonder what yours is?
I've used the Giant Poppy.

I started off with a piece of cardstock and coated it with some Fine Texture modelling paste then took my Palette Knife and put lines across it to make it look like a wall. Then I put it aside to dry. 

 Once dry I painted over with a layer of Raven Black IndigoBlu Paint instead of using gesso as the metallic in the paint is stunning.

I dried the Raven Black off with my heat gun and then mixed some Luscious Powders together to give a wash over, the Luscious coloures I used were Rose Bronze, Green, Bronze. I have to say my Luscious powders are never off my desk as I adore them.

 It really is hard to choose a favourite but the Giant Poppy is truly a stunner so I stamped and cut out three of the smaller flowers and stems from the huge set.

 I have coloured them with Green and Raspberry Luscious mixed with a little water. The mica in the Luscious is WOW 

 The Poppy's now twinkle

To put my card together I mat and layered onto some black cardstock and then stamped the fabulous sentiment from Floral Fantasy Stamp Set which is one of my mega favorite sets. I layerd the Poppy's with some 3d glue gel and tied the stems together with some string and to finish off added a few splats of watered down White GeSso Good.
