From grunge to new Tattered Lace



We have a new challenge starting over at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, the them is Tic Tac Toe and I will admit I had to check what exactly that was, seems it's just another name for bingo, so I went with the Blue/Brown, Cord and Flowers line. As always there is a very generous $20 voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.

My starting pint was to spray Dylusions and pearl Glimmer Mist onto the reverse of a piece of Centura Pearl and then add some diamonds with a mask and DI. Next I used several Flonz stamps around the top and at the bottom Flonz Thistles which I coloured in with the same Dyslusions. I added some Frantage around the edges, tied some cord, added a blue and cream rose and mounted onto a piece of corrugated card from my ever growing stash of it.

Using Moonlight Dance and  Dance like Nobody is Watching  

As I indicated the other day, there is a new Tattered Lace Pick of the Day starting at 9pm tonight on Ideal World TV and Create and Craft tomorrow. These new dies were waiting for me when we arrived home from holiday so I was thrust straight back into creativity.

Using Horse and Rider - one of the granddaughters loves this one so think it will get well used

Using over the edge Treeline and Houses

Many thanks for popping in today and hope you all have a good week.

  5. Wjat a wonderful selection again Brenda, wouldn't like to choose a favourite because they are all so different.
    By the way, I think Tic Tac Toe is more Noughts and Crosses than Bingo :o)

  10. Tic Tac Toe was something that I had to look up but I have to say that I really like the idea and I hope to have chance to have a go at it before the end of the challenge. Your card is wonderful and I really like the background that you've created. I also like the way that you've coloured the flower to tone in with the rest of the card, it all comes together beautifully x

  12. Wow your posts lately are choc-a-block full of creative projects and cards Brenda. Love the background on your first card and the beautiful dies on the other three. Send some of your mojo this way please I'm finding it hard to create just one card at the moment and I need to up my game with Christmas looming :/
    Thanks for the heads up about the Allsorts challenge too.

  13. You have been busy, Brenda. I hope your holidays will have a long lasting effect on your feeling of well- being. It's also nice to have another holiday to look forward to, even if it's still a long way off. We were expecting/hoping for a more quiet year than last year, but the fact is that my husband had a tumor removed from his colon 2 months ago and we're at the hospital today for the start of the second round of chemo (of a total of 8). So far, he's not suffering any serious side effects, so we're hoping things will continue this way. I suppose the chemo is fairly light, since it is more or less a precautionary treatment.

  44. Wonderful card Brenda. My favorite is the first one, as I love when you create those inky papers! I need to watch more dylusions how-to videos, I somehow quit using mine...Loving your other creations too, the dies are gorgeous!

  45. Gorgeous cards Brenda. I especially like the stepper card with the dancing couple - very Strictly. I watched the TV shows and really like the showjumper but couldn't justify the purchase. I do like the layout you have used for this card.
    Take care
