Make it Girly at Allsorts


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Lynn who would like us to 'Make to Girly', this weeks lucky winner  will be able to choose a whole collection of images from Julia's JMC Designs store.

It's still short and sweet again I'm afraid as it's another couple of weeks until I get glasses so I can see the screen with any degree of clarity, so all rather hit and miss still. My top card used the lovely Zamira from Lavinia along with Poppies, all stamped with Versafine Clair.


I managed to get a card made for the current Butterfly Challenge which I've not joined in with for a while, the current requirements for the letter 'T' are tunnel card, tea rose, teal, thistle, twine, two of something and of course a Butterfly. You can't really go wrong with inky backgrounds so lack of vision wasn't a great issue, three colours are Distress Oxides, a Crafty Individuals image, then I stamped the Butterfly twice more to decoupage, a twine bow on his throax, three pearls and dies to create the tunnel effect.


And this card features Marcelle from this weeks sponsor, something of a challenge for me as I'm not a colourist at the best of times, let alone without glasses.

Have a great weekend.

Ciao Brenda, anche senza occhiali vai alla grande, direi!!! :) Tre stupende cards, e specialmente il trittico è sensazionale!!! Zamira è la mia fata preferita tra le ultime rilasciate e la scena che hai creato per lei è davvero deliziosa, così divisa con i tre pannelli e gli splendidi sfondi!!!
La tunnel card con la farfalla è sorprendente, favolosi colori e mi piace molto come hai evidenziato alcune parole del sentiment con i cerchi/macchie di tazza! Il twine sulla farfalla attira l'attenzione sulla bellissima farfalla 3D!
E l'ultima card, così diversa dal tuo solito stile, mi piace moltissimo, è davvero elegante e dolcissima!! L'hai colorata così bene senza occhiali, io senza i miei "4 occhi" non sarei mai riuscita a non sbordare con i colori! LOL :D
Ti auguro un buon weekend, spero che da te ora ci sia il sole... so che c'è stata molta pioggia, spero che non abbia fatto troppi danni.
Qui la primavera sembra già arrivata
Un forte abbraccio

Donna Ellis said...

You're my hero, and my inspiration, Miss Brenda! Not just through your soulful artwork, but by sharing your life (it's blessings and challenges) and your tremendous stamina. Hoping that the new glasses will bring with them a whole new way of seeing things, physically. Your beautiful heart already sees tremendous beauty. Had to PIN all your lovelies today, B. The feminine scene bringing forth Life, the butterfly mosaic indicating the realms of Life, and your girl in pink all bring out a different type of nurturing and love. Thanks for sharing, big hugs, de

Ellibelle said...

All such beautiful cards Brenda. Seeing your gorgeous Lavinia card on the DT blog inspired me to get my Lavinias inky as well for this theme. You are so good at remembering the fairies names too! I never do!
A wonderful inky butterfly card as well, those colors are so pretty and loving the fun JMC card with the wonderful sketch!

Craftyfield said...

Beautiful cards Brenda! I love the Lavinia card's semi circular gatefold shape and the background looks great (not sure if it's a Distress Oxide or alcohol inks but it's perfect for those whimsical scenes). Have a great Sunday. x

Babs said...

It isn't easy I think for a busy bee to have to slow down and wait untill the next step in the proces...wish you patience... Hugs, Gerrina

Vicky Hayes said...

What an amazing display of cards Brenda - and all different styles! What an fascinating shape your first card is and what a gorgeous background. The layered stamping on your tunnel card is really effective and the twine is the perfect embellishment for your butterfly. I can't believe you coloured Marcelle so beautifully without glasses on your third card!!! Vicky x

Sarah said...

Fabulous cards Brenda, the screen is fantastic, I love the pretty colours on the tunnel card and get you...a coloured image, I thought your blog had been hijacked!! Great design and such pretty paper. Hope you are still improving xx

Fabulous cards Brenda, love the background for the fairy card and the design. The background colours on the butterfly card are beautiful with the black stamped image. For not having glasses Brenda, the coloured image is fabulous, wouldn't like to think what mine would be like if I didn't have the specs on!
Hugs, Avril xx
