Winter Wedding Card + Matching Box !!

Hello my friends, I'm here today sharing my latest
Design Team creation with you for

  I was asked to  make an 8"x8" wedding card and the brief 
was Royal blue and white!!! but not too 
fussy or fancy.  Well this is as plain as I could manage.
I've since been told the Bride and Groom loved it. 

The flowers are made with white foamiran and I used 
Ultra Marine Blue 218 Gallery soft oil pastel 
to colour the petals.  I kept the leaves just white!!

My Foamiran, flowers dies and pastels are from and also the chipboard 
Mr & Mrs which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I hope you like my creation and that it inspires you to try
some flower making of your own.

A Christmas Wall Hanging Gift idea !!

Hello my lovely's,   I hope you are all in good health
and keeping warm now that the temperature has
dropped dramatically!!! Brrrrrrrrrrr.  it's really cold

I'm here sharing a mixed media Christmas wall hanging 
with you.  I always make my Daughter either a canvas or
a wall hanging of some description every year and this 
year is no different.  Now that she has received it I can share!!

The wooden plaque 10" x 6" was bought in the sale at
 B&M  for 50pence!!! I bought 4 of them and put them into my
alterations box  (which is growing rapidly) lol!!

Before & After

First I used gesso over the edges of the plaque, then 
covered the edges using blue glitter washi tape
My papers are from Lemoncrafts Gossamer Blue collection
and they have been distressed and covered in a mesh
glitter fabric.  I've used gesso, snowtex, and 13Arts 
Ayeeda Ink (turquoise glitter) 

My flowers are made using Foamiran, dies and stamens
The trees are a Marianne Design die and they've been cut
out using glitter card and glitter foam.

Sweet Snowman Tilda is from the Christmas Party Collection
2017 and has been coloured with Derwent soft pencils. 

Here is a close up of the pretty flowers and glitter baubles.
