Some of my Makings

Hey everyone I have a couple of quick shares for you all.......These projects were for a couple of challenges that I entered over at Scrappers Obsessionz.  This is a site for New Zealand and Australian ladies to swap, create. inspire and share.  Please stop by and see what we have all been up is free to join and swapping is optional. Here is the web address and you can  also find it on facebook  Come on over!!

It has been quite sometime since I last created a layout.....I forgot just how much fun they can be and how quick!!  I have used none other than Graphic 45 "Le Romantique" papers for this and a little bit of pearl bling from Paper Extra - a new brand that I recently found in my local cheap shop.  So you know what I did?  Yep you guessed it,  I stocked up big time and bought it all lol....The papers are so beautiful, there was no need to add anything else. I did a lot of fussy cutting, distressing the edges with  my scissors and some tearing here and there.  I inked up all the edges with Tim Holtz Black soot.

My second challenge, was a card sketch.  Now I am not much of a cardmaker, but this one came easy :)
The papers I have used are from Prima "Almanac" collection; some more of the Papers Extra pearl bling.  I created the silhouette with a Spellbinders Die.  I left it in the die and inked up the cardstock with Tim Holtz Tea Dye and then on the loopy edges I added a layer or two of Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet.

Welll that is my lot for the week.....I do have a bit more news to share with you all.....but that will be another post!.....

Love and blessings to you all
