Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week it is Heidi’s Challenge – All About Occasions.

This week I decided to use some pretty Cosmic  Shimmer Pixie Powder panels I had made.  I loved the shine on this main panel and decided to keep it whole.

The other scrap piece, I used to stamp Lawn Fawn’s Fortune Teller stamp, fussy cutting the table and bandana.

I stamped the main image once more on white card and coloured the cat and ball with Distress watercolour and gold Wink of Stella for the ball base.

Next the table cloth and bandana was glued onto the image.

After stamping the sentiment on the ball, it was covered with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with some fine glitter.

The image was fussy cut and added to a Stitched tag die from Paper Roses, and SSS Stitched Whirl Background Die. The edges were had a little Distress Ink added, before the image was attached and the sentiment stamped.

A starry ribbon was added to the top.

It was then just a matter of adding a slit towards the top of the front panel so the book mark could be slid onto the front.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
