Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card

Good morning everyone, how are you all? Things are still hectic here but hopefully things will start calming down in the next week or 2. HUbster gets his plaster taken off tomorrow & the remaining pins removed, he may need physio after though.

Anyhoo's I'm here today as its time for a new challenge over at Crafts & Me & this week you have us Rockin Rubbah's ;-) The theme this week is just sooooooooooooooo super duper easy.......
DIES & PUNCHES
............see what I mean, now come on we all love our dies & punches..........well I prefer dies tbh!!
I have used a new rubber stamp coming soon to CRafts & Me Store.

This is 'Heather' by the uber talented Hannah Lynn, I loved colouring her & I did this in one of my fave colour combo's, Blue & Brown ;0)

I've used Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf' dies. I made a double bow with Shabby Seam Binding & attached that to a bow made with Cheese Cloth & then attached the gorgeous Pearl Trinket to the centre, I soooooo love these beauties.
The tag I cut from 'Huntington Garden' paper & added a Tim Holtz 'Trinket Pin' which also got the gesso treatment ;0) The rose is from WOC & added gesso to it & the butterfly is from my jewellery crafting stash.

I added gorgeous Pleated Tulle & added Organza Rose trim on top. I also painted a Silver Metal Corner white with Gesso, I also added it to the Tulle & Rose trims & other bits here & there.

Of course this lady was coloured with copics, I think I can remember the colours.....
E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
B97, B95, B93, B91
E55, E53, E51

I've added a LOTV postcard which I stamped onto kraft. The papers are Fleamarket 'Ladylike' & Fleamarket 'Notes' & I've inked all the edges. I've decorated inside & added 'Doilies' inside & on the front which I stained & aged to compliment the card.

Well thats it from me I'm off to do a bit of blog hopping before I take Megan the hospital for a scan. She has been having a lot of trouble with this pregnancy bless her & Ben unfortunately cant get the day off work. I will however catch up with the rest of you lovelies later when I get back.

Pop on over to check out my fabulous teamies creations, stunners they are trust me!!!
Thank you for stopping by & for your lovely comments mmwah.
