Something blue

Well I'm sat here trying to get thru tonight's episode of z factor.. Honestly it drives me to despair I do not know why I watch it!!
Sooooo I thought I'd share with you a card I made for my father in laws birthday.. Which was today..
It's made up of chocolate baroque, paper artsy stamps and heartfelt creation dies
And a stencil( whose make escapes me.. Probably this awful performance on TV distracting my brain from functioning!)

Hope you like it.. Male cards are my Achilles heel lol..
Thanks for your visit,

Last sneak peek

The weekender shows kick off tomorrow on create and craft at 9am..
 Sheena will be bringing the new pebeo kit and 4 new stamp sheets.. 
Here are the rest of my samples, to hopefully wet your appetite .. 
Starting with the mixed media..

I made a necklace with the fantasy paint and decorated the box using the guiding sheets from the kit...

This is a box I altered using the paste and paints and a little of the gilding sheets.. 

This is a box canvas I made using gloss medium and the paints from the kit.. 

Now for my card samples.. Using the tree  sheet and the abstract.. For these I primarily used aquatints. 

So there you have it.. 

I hope you can join Sheena for these shows.. 9am sky channel 674 1-2nd November
Thank you for your visit it means a lot

Sneak peek 3

Mornin all,
Quick post..
Pebeo mixed media launch this Saturday and Sunday on create and craft TV with Sheena Douglass.. Along with some new stamps .. 
Here's my mixed media piece.. 

It's a canvas using the fantasy paints, craft paste, Aqua tints and the stamps I used are my favourite Sheena stamps from a while back the hibiscus.. Which I think may be on the show.. (If you haven't got these stamps.. Get them!) 

Next is a sample using the new stamps..
 I got trees and abstract to work with.. 

This one is made with the tree plate.. And aquatints..

I'm still not too sure of show times (as they change) so when I know I'll post them..
Thank you for your visit
