You are my Anchor

Hi Everyone

Tonight I have a card using the gorgeous @Graphic45 papers Sail Away, this image is so vintage and the colours are beautiful

I used a sketch from Mojo Monday

I used a standard A6 card size, I used one of the stickers for an embellishment backing it with card stock and also used a peel off on the 1" strip 

Thanks as always for looking

Home Sweet Home

HI everyone

Something a bit different today, I have made this sign for my new house.  It is done with vinyl letter and the wood boards are actually two signs I bought in B&M so I decided to change them up.

Firstly I put them end to end with some hot glue and super glue, then I painted the whole thing with a cream chalk paint.  After this was dry I had the join line so I went in and drew more lines with a pencil and went over them with a very thin paint brush and some brown chalk paint to make it look like wood.  I also chose to dry brush over the whole thing with the darker paint making it a bit more distressed.

I cut out the home sweet home and the leaf pattern on my Cameo and added the this to the front then I went over it all with some sand paper to make is blend a bit more.

I added the flower from one in my stash but first dry brushed this with the same cream and then added some rope for the hanger.

I love the way this turned out and it has given me more ideas to make.

Thanks as always for looking.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hi Everyone

Well have had a dry spell for the last 6 or so weeks, really lost all my mojo, as I have been trying to pack up so I can move which is going way to slow at the moment.

Anyway unpack things again and decided to make a card

I used a Retro pack from the Range, lovely papers reminds me of old wall paper.

Anyway thanks for looking as always.
