Morning Peeps, this weeks Allsorts theme is all about 'Handmade Flowers', the theme as chosen by Helene. And we have a new sponsor Stickeryou who are offering one lucky winner a whopping $65 voucher to use in their store. And it's going to be rather a long post as I also have a share for the current Butterfly challenge and my mid month inspirational piece for Penny Black and More challenge as well as (yes I am rather late) my shares from yesterday's 15 minute/CAS cards post over at Chocolate Baroque.
Not been about much this week, still suffering the after effects of the oral surgery a month ago. Occipital Neuralgia kicked in earlier in the week, apparently a spin off from the nerve damage so along with Trigeminal Neuralgia which I get as a side effect of my MS I've not had much sleep and rather like a zombie at the moment (hence I forgot my CB post).
The first card was a Tattered Lace DT creation and the second for Chocolate Baroque, although the flowers on both are made using the Tattered Lace Fleurs flower forming kit. For the first I did some random stamping with Tattered Lace Rare Earth stamps, flicked some watery DI's here and there then fixed the flowers into place and added a sentiment which is also Rare Earth.
I used Pixie powders in purple, pink and peach to create a background, then stamped the Inkylicious Ballerina and sentiment in black Versafine, then the two Penny Black Butterflies onto coloured paper and cut out. Matted that piece onto pink DP, fixed to the base card and then added the Butterflies, wire antenna and Liquid Pearls down the thorax.
And a second Allsorts card which has an Distress Oxide background, random stamping and stenciling using Chocolate Baroque stamps and stencils, a CB sentiment and then flowers made with the same TL system and finally a Butterfly.
And a few of my 15 minute Chocolate Baroque shares.............
Hope you all have a good weekend.
