Penny Black @ Allsorts

The title of this months challenge over at PennyBlack @ Allsorts is Glitter and Glitz so I have put this card into the challenge. I hope that the photo has picked up all the gliter!! I decided to leave the stamp black and white - it's such a small stamp and was lost when I coloured it in.

I have made a little 'me' time over the last few days and spent time in my craft room. It really is very relaxing!!!
I have made this card which I am entering the following two challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky - Flower Power

Anything Goes Challenge - Three Layers

At the moment I don't have many Magnolia's so this is the girl on the bike again - but I do like so much.

Thanks for popping by,

Jo xx

Tim Holtz

Good afternoon everyone in Blogland. I have been playing with Tim Holtz this morning - or should I say just a few of his products! I bought some Gesso a few weeks ago so had to experiment with it. The background has been done with distress inks and then stamped on with Stazon. Then I applied the Gesso and then rubbed off with babywipes left it to dry and then stamped on top with stazon. It gives the background an old faded effect which I quite like.
I also have some clear crackle glaze so I'm going to have a play with that now!

Bye for now Jo x

Sir Stampalot August Challenge

Hello everyone! I have decided to put this card into this month's challenge at Sir Stampalot entitled 'Bring on the Bling'. You should be able to see the gems on the scroll which I made using a diecut from the cricut,used as a template and then inked over with distress inks. Tilda has been painted with distress inks too, just 'Black Soot' and 'Faded Jeans'. I hope you like her xx
