Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #177 - Furry Friends

It's Wednesday so time for some fun with this week's Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge.
Our sponsor this week is:


And our new theme is:


Here's my ATC;
I used the gorgeous Rosey with Flower image from Fred She Said for my ATC.
I had great fun colouring this cute wee doggy with my Letraset Promarkers and a wee splash of Uni Posca White Pen.

If you've seen my previous post today you'll recognise the patterned paper.  That's one of the things i love about creating ATCs, it gives you the chance to use up those scraps of pretty papers that are just too good to throw away.

For my sentiment I used Tim Holtz's Label Letter Stickers, which I adore, they work with anything, and you get quite a few in the wee booklet they come in.  

To embellish my ATC I added some pretty red dome gems from my stash.

I had great fun with this ATC and can't wait to see your interpretation of our 'Furry Friends' theme.  Don't forget to head over to the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog to get full details of our challenge and to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of our design team.

Good Morning All, It's my pleasure to be sharing another Sweet Pea Stamps project with you today.  This week I'm showcasing the gorgeous 'We're All Mad Here' by Charmaine Flannery.  I love Alice in Wonderland, so could not resist colouring this image.

Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #174 Splatters or Sprays

It's time for another Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge, this week we are sponsored by the truly awesome 


If you've not discovered Vera Lane Studio yet, then you are in for a real treat today.  The store is full of wonderful whimsical images for all your crafting needs.  You'll be spoilt for choice.

Our theme this week is;

Here's my ATC;
For my ATC I used Le Petit Ariste, isn't she wonderful!

I had great fun creating my background for this ATC, I used a mixture of sprays along with some Stampendous Frantage.  I achieved a gorgeous shimmer on my background using a Studio Calico Mr Huey Spray in 'Shimmer' which adds a wonderful shimmer to anything.  

I used elements from the White and Teal Encrusted Jewel Frantage Kits, and boy was that fun.  If you've not tried Frantage yet, they you really are missing out on some gorgeous effects.  

I highly recommend getting the White Encrusted Jewel Kit as your first set, as it will work for so many different themes, I love the Chunky White Embossing Enamel and Shaved Ice Fragments that come as part of the set.
I've two tips for you when using Frantage;

1; If your just sprinkling the elements onto your project, make sure you keep it flat, and hold you project with some sort of tweezers so you don't burn your fingers. (Attach the tweezers to your project before you add your Frantage if you can, then you've less chance of spillage!)
2; Make sure you heat from underneath your project.  You'll need to use at least one embossing powder/enamel to hold the other elements/fragments in place.  You don't need glue, the process of melting the embossing powder will adhere the other elements.  

That's all from me for now. If you've not checked out this weeks challenge post over at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog yet, then you really must, the rest of the DT have created some truly magical projects this week, you really don't want to miss out.

Butterfly Kisses

It's Wednesday again, So time for me to share another gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamps project.  This week I'm showcasing a truly beautiful image, 'Butterfly Kisses' by Holly Durr, it's one of the sweetest angels i've ever seen.

I had great fun colouring this cute little cherub.  I teamed her up with papers from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Nutmeg Paper Pad.  I love how the flowers in the patterned paper echo those on the image.  

I die cut a frame for the image from some gorgeous shimmery gold card.  I attached my framed image to my card with some foam pads to give a little extra dimension.  

To embellish my card I added some satin ribbon, 3D butterfly stickers and a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket.

That's all from me for now, Thank you for visiting with me, and don't forget to check out the daily posts on the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog by our very talented design team, You'll find lots of inspiration and gorgeous images.
