I've got a Colour Challenge for you today, using the shades below:

and I decided to do a little inking and stitching.......

I cut the Cross-Stitch Rectangle die from Smooth White card and inked it with a combination of Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

The hedgehog comes courtesy of a chart from www.crossmenot.blogspot.com.  I added some daisies for the yellow and white part of the challenge.

I affixed the stitched panel on to a two-tone mount of Sour Apple and Berrylicious with Foam Tape for added dimension, before adhereing this to a Smooth White card base.

I hope you can join in with todays challenge and remember there is a $50 store voucher up for grabs!

Until next time
Happy Colouring

Hello there, it's time to take a second look at the June release from MFT.

I chose to use Birdie Brown's Gill Friends and couldn't resist incorporating a little cross-stitch too!

I cut the cross-stitch grid with the Cross-Stitch Tag die from Yupo paper.   If you haven't tried Yupo paper before, it's fantastic for cross-stitch projects as it's less inclined to tear if you pull the threads too tight.

I used 6 colours of DMC Perle Cotton in a random pattern to give the impression of water.

As for the fish, they were stamped with Hybrid Gravel Grey ink on Copic suitable card and coloured with Copic Markers (available here)

Goldfish: Y17, YR04, YR07, YR14, YR18, YR27, W8
Neon Tetra: W1, W2, R22, R27, B21, B24, W8
Background: Y17, B01, BG13, BG45, BG49, YG61

You may have spotted that I coloured the outside of the die cut fish.  I did this in order that they blended in better with the water.

Small bubbles were created using clear round drops that I adhered to the stitched area with Multi Medium Matte.  The fish were affixed with either Multi Medium Matte or Foam Squares for additional dimension.

I created my own background paper using the Mermaid Tail background stamp and various Hybrid inks to match the DMC threads.  The finished project was adhered to a Smooth White card base, with a narrow Tropical Teal mount.

Many thanks for visiting my blog today and don't forget you can follow me on my Facebook Page and Instagram.

It's the day I am sure many of you have been waiting for, but before you head off to mftstamps.com to spend your pennies, allow me to share with you one last project:

This card was created using the beautiful Moroccan Mosaic die and Distress Oxide ink.

The card base was created using Latte cardstock, with the background mount cut from Bristol Paper using the largest Stitched Tag Corner Square Stax.  
I then used Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio and Antique Linen Distress Oxides to create a blended background, spritzing it with a Distress Sprayer.

The Moroccan Mosaic die was inked with the same Distress Oxides but in reverse order with the addition of Frayed Burlap on the outer edge to coordinate with the Latte card base.

Now, before you head off to shop I have some awesome news:
