WOYWW - Not enough room but fabulous backgrounds!

Well there is not much space for a start on my desk at the moment! I haven't entered WOYWW for quite awhile, but after spending so much time at my desk yesterday as the weather is so bad I thought I would show you what I have created. I spent yesterday playing with WOW! Embossing Powders, Cosmic Shimmer Inks and Bead Dazzles to create these pieces you can see here. I also tried embossing some Mulberry paper and spraying with inks which I love.

F for Feathered Friends

This week at the Alphabet Challenge it was my turn to choose the theme which is F for Feathered Friends.For my creation I used a Crafty Individuals stamp which is a favourite of mine and used Distress Inks to give it a shabby appearance.  I coloured the die cuts with Distress Ink and used WOW!Embossing Foils and a glue pen to decorate the birdcage. Finally I added the roses and hat pins and a sentiment from Creative Expressions Birds stamp set.

I hope you will join us in this challenge which lasts for the next two weeks.

I am entering this into the following challenges :
The Stamp Man - Shabby Chic or Distressed
Charizma Cards - Shabby Chic
Cupcake Craft Room - Bugs n Birds n Wings and Things

Fantasy Fairy

Well I'm slowly getting back to normal after the Easter break, although I still have my son at home with chickenpox!!

I wanted to share this card with you today. I loved the recent releases from Katy Sue Designs which features fairy silhouettes.  I have to admit I cheated by buying their background papers with the landscapes already created! I then stamped the fairy over the moon, added a sentiment and highlighted areas with glitter.

I am entering the following challenges :
Critter Sketch - Fairies

E for Embroidery

This week at the Alphabet Challenge we are on E for Embroidery. I decided not to submit a card this week for the DT showcase, but a little scene from Rowandean kits which I completed a while ago. I love these scenes and have another one waiting for me to complete!I'm afraid stitching is another one of my addictions!

I do hope you will join us this week at the Alphabet Challenge.
