PDCCC.... Colour splash

This is one of my favourite stamps from Elusive Images, stamped once in DI Black Soot and once in DI Aged Mahogany. The black image decoupaged with the red. DP from Papermania, Mono Capsule Collection. Black card punched with a Martha Stewart Doily punch
 here's another one!

This time using  Inkadikado clear inches Bird stamps. stamped in Versamark then embossed in black. The red bird is stamped with DI in Aged Mahogany and clear embossed.The red card is also coloured with aged mahogany. I've had this idea (or something similar ) for some time but! I'm terrible at straight lines and lining stuff up...but decided to have a go any way lol.
 Had to scan it cos it's dark outside! might take a photo tomorrow.

This is the lovely colour splash inspiration photo but pop along to  PDCCC to see lots more inspiration. Click on the logo on my side bar.

Still not crafting :o(

 Still in the crafty doldrums! is up and down at the moment...So here's a couple of photos of a double rainbow which was over Crewe this week. It proves there are some benefits to a weather forecast that says sunshine and showers!

It was late afternoon so the light wasn't brilliant but I hope the gorgeous luminosity of the colours is evident. The  second rainbow was disappearing before my eyes so is only just visible. In fact the whole scene disappeared very quickly I think I was lucky to spot it through the window in time to grab my camera.

PS. I've changed the background to my blog (again) I love light flowing through doors and windows and although I liked the previous background it was a bit dark. One day I will find  a background that really suits me... I know I know I should have a go at doing my own....

Me a poet?...

My first crafty endeavour for some time ... I love playing with my steampunk journal so have enjoyed my self this afternoon doing just that..

Thank you to Suzanne, Val and Chris yesterdays comments helped! :)
Actually blog buddies all your comments help. 

I wanted to come up with a poem/ditty to say thank you.. but I got no further than:

When my creativity has deserted
my confidence reduced.................

I wanted it to be light hearted and funny ...but it just got serious 

may be you can do better lol!

Creative fairy?

A quick post to say Hi! I am here but my creative fairy has hidden away!  I think she's found a pretty box to hide in away from all the mess and crafty clutter so maybe if I get down to tidying/organising the MR she might decide to put in an appearance... watch this space.

For Jeanie!

It's my friends 60th birthday on 31st October. Jeanie as I'm sure you know by now lives in France. There's going to be a big birthday bash in France ( fancy dress optional! but Jeanie's got a big purple witches hat amongst other items of witchy clothing!) .not sure if I'm able to be there.. :(

At the moment Jeanie and her husband Bill are in the UK so I'll be having a dinner party on Saturday to celebrate!... me cooking!!!!! I used to do a lot of cooking and baking but these days I only nuke or wok! .. LOL.

 I'm hoping to replace the heart in the centre of the web with a spider of some kind. I don't have a spider stamp, charm, sticker etc.Yet !

It's a long story how this card developed... Suffice it to say, I was playing during the day, couldn't sleep in the night so carried on playing, this is the result.

Glimmer mist: Lily Pad
Sticky Fingers Spray: Grass Green
Glimmer screens: Winter Trees which didn't quite work  :)
Lace: Ribbon Girl
Bells: Dunhelm Mill

PS I'm plucking up the courage to add some stitching ... faux or real, does it need any?.. what do you think?

Too late!

This page in my journal has been waiting for attention for some looong time. I thought it would suit the PDCC this week... but I only finished it today so too late to enter.. actually I only started it today ;) but continued with the PDCC theme cos the base which  was created from the waste left over on wet wipes  was just the right colours (ish) for this weeks PDCCC.
The images and sequin waste are stamped in brown Stazon but I must say it all looks black!  I've also used brown fine liner around the words. The gold metal are bits I've rescued from what was an experiment that went wrong.. lack of knowledge on my part! I still don't know quite how to use the metal!! I can't wait for the next metal workshop with Sarah Anderson at the wonderful Cubby Hole here in Crewe.
PS The page is not as dull as it appears!


For a new baby boy called William
