I've been shoooppppinggggggg!!!!!

Much to my dismay (??!) I was forced by Paperchase to spend a LOT of money in there at the weekend.
Sigh.
Still, a crafter's gotta do what a crafter's gotta do!!

So who wants to see what I got? :D

Washi tape and something I've never seen before called Glass Tape! I was rather intrigued so of course I had to get some, and upon further inspection it's actually Sellotape with a pattern on it! how cool!

bargainous tissue/wrapping papers and a little sketchbook thing for £2!

yummy stickers!!

Random stuff, the big heart thing is on a loop of ribbon! Weird but for 45p why not!

The two sticker packs in the next shot are from Accessorise and the hessian stuff was from Paperchase. It reminds me of the stuff you put under mats to stop them slipping on wooden floors! I promise you it's not though ;)

These were from an Art shop I found wandering round Soho:
bargains!! I've wanted some fine line sharpies for a while!

and finally, a bonus Cat shot, just cos I can! They weren't too happy at being woken up for me to stick a camera in their faces! :) lol

Pile it On - Sparkle and Shine

This week at Pile it on we've gone all Sparkly and shiny!
So I've gone with stickles, gems and black glitter card!

Our lovely sponsor is Some Odd Girl!

This image is from a designer I've recently discovered called Redonkulous designs!

I've coloured with Prismacolour pencils and inked the edges of the image with Spun sugar distress ink to take the white glare off.
The paper is from dovecraft back to basics collection. 
I've used an aluminium plate effect embossing folder with black magic cardstock and distressed the raised areas so that the blue colour core shows through.
Ribbon, gems and brad from stash, and sentiment from Craftwork cards.

Good morning! For our challenge at AUD Sentiments this fortnight, we're looking to see your Spring/Summer colours (with a sentiment of course!)

We are sponsored by the generous Heart Song Designs, and I've used this sweet fence and birdie image of theirs for my card :)

I've coloured with Prisma pencils and inked the sky and the grass with distress inks.
I've used a memory box die (floral square) and chopped it in half to make the decorative corners along with roses from Wild orchid crafts, and leaves made with an MS punch.
Sentiment is craftwork cards and I believe the paper is Basic Grey :)

Thanks for visiting!
