As I said yesterday .......

Good morning everyone seems like we are having another bright crisp day in the UK hope your weather is being kind to you all, as I was saying yesterday I have been stepping outside my comfort zone a little bit and here is what I made:

Embossing Powder - Kids Clay - Hot Glue
 coloured with Copics

 finished but still a bit untidy

First my Daughter wanted me to try to make some Shoe charms (aka Skulls) tried Fimo wasn't very good, Hot Glue came out yellow, Kids clay still spongy after it had set best result Embossing powers melted and then used my black copic pen.
I also made these Porcelain flowers using home made Porcelain (thanks you tube) and some silicon moulds, they start off white then in a few days go a bit clearer also they shrink and get a little lighter too.

I am entering them in these places and maybe others might want to try these: - Anything but a Card - Embossing - Anything Goes - Anything Goes

Happy Mothers Day

Good evening I hope you are all well and hasn't the weather changed? What have you all been up to anything good I worked outside my comfort zone and tried something different which I will show you at a later date, well firstly I would like to thank the lovely people @ QKR Stampede for choosing me for a top 5 Badge and secondly I have to tell you about the new challenge over at OSCC. The lovely sponsor this week-end is Fred She Said and the challenge is nice and easy unless like me you don't have a mum to send it to so anyway lets move on all you have to do is to produce something for a MUM.

The Prise is a $15 Gift Voucher

For this card which I wasn't sure what to use as a base card all I knew was I needed the Pricking Template which included the flowers that I coloured with Promarkers, but I was going to use the small bouquet at the bottom of the stand which I bought from ST Andrew's Hospice and then changed my mind to the Originals. I hope you like it.

Paper Pricking Pattern -Frame & Flourish from Fred She Said
Miri card and base paper from stash,
Doiley a freebie from a craft Mag,
Joy Die, 
Leafy throngs Marriane Dies
Creative Impressions Celebration plate
