Fairy Tale Unicorn in Pencils

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponored by Fabrika Fantasy and I used the image "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" once again but this time coloured with pencils-a first for me-the lines of glamour dust were added because my printer has decided despite head cleaning it is going to leave faint lines!!!I used layered stitch dies from The Works and all papers from stash,the little corrugated cardboard arrow painted with Aztec paint was one of a set from Dutch Doobado,I added a thin DST all round edges of card and pressed glamour dust onto it for more sparkle.No sentiment until I decide who it is for.
Sorry if I am slow getting round to you all but had grandaughter Holly off school all week with abcess on her tooth-really swollen and in pain on antibiotics at the moment.

Back to School with Friends

Morning and this is my 2nd and last DT post today which is for the new ATG/Back To School challenge at Crafty Girlz.I used a pr-coloured image from Mos Digital pencil which was actually bought from Hobby House a couple of years ago.I decided to decorate a note-book bought from Hobbycraft also a couple of years ago-trying to use up my crafty stash.

I distressed all edges/the paper clips are from stash and everything was put on with silicone for extra depth.

Inkylicious and Baby Wipe

Morning and I have a Thank you card to share today using my new Inkylicious stamp,the background was made with a baby wipe used to clean some stamps grandaughters were using with a very juicy red inkpad!!!whilst the ink and wipe was still wet and laid it onto cardstock and kept patting it down and moving it around till it covered the card.
I then added some spots of yellow and blended with the still wet wipe.
I stamped the image and stamped sentiment,matted onto black the white cardstock and added tiny pearls and white gel pen from stash-I am sending this card to my Nephews wife who kindly sent me a rather large box of craft stuff and a box full of practically new stamps(not this one)-thank you very much Fiona much appreciated.

Shabby Chic Heart Set

Morning and we have a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create which is ATG/Shabby Chic chosen by Sheryl.
I bought a set from The Works last year (£1) 3 different sized MDF hearts,papers and matching paper embellishments which were a bit flimsy but hey ho £1 so no complaints--
got as far as covering the hearts with the papers -decided they were a bit bright so stamped some music score from Kanban onto tissue paper and covered the hearts with PVA and the tissue paper-more PVA and distressed the edges.Added hessian/daisy ribbon/paper flower/hessian flowers and butterfly/fibres/pearls/lace/diecut flowers and ribbon to hang-all from stash.
The chipboard circle was treated the same way and stamped a sentiment from Sheena Douglas-distress inked and cut with a sizzix die.
