A Krafty Affair



Hello peeps, Happy Mothering Sunday to all you crafty Mums out there.

A quick question, has anyone else lost their little editing tools from their blogs over the weekend ? I can still edit from the settings but the little pencil and spanners have disappeared on all the blogs I manager which is a real pain as they make editing so much quicker.

Today it's time to share the second of my Stampalot creations for the DT's March challenges. I hope you can fine a few moments to pop over the the challenge blog and go and visit all the DT's pieces of work, they are all fab and so different.

The kit's I sent to the DT were again much the same, just slightly different double sided DP's from the same pack of  My Minds Eye Kraft Funday Happy Days. Most the the designs were quite bright with primary colours so I opted for the reverse side of my three sheets.

The base sheet was a neutral colour with spots which I spritzed with Glimmer Mist iridescent gold and red velvet. When dry I randomly stamped with Hero Arts S5601 Newspaper Background and S5449 Fabulous Flourish and embossed the latter with detail copper. I then stamped Hero Arts K5586 Starbursts and again embossed with detail copper. The sentiment is Penny Black 3195H stamped onto a piece of the DP and embossed with the same powder. I made the flower using TH tattered floral die and the leaves are Spellbinders and I found the DP sanded down nicely to fit in with my overall theme.

Have a good Sunday.

Gorgeous card, Brenda. I love the background you created. The more I see of that starbursts stamp the more I love it! The people in the local flower shop say it was snowing at seven this morning, but the rain has stopped and I am laughing at Steve and Meg cleaning my car (and having a bit of a water fight!) Enjoy your day my friend. I'm off to get inky xxx

Hope you've had a lovely day today. The weather here today has been beautiful and I even got all my washing out and dried. My younger daughter took me out to lunch. She even gave me a card lol, and I had cards from the other two as well.
