Wild Garden

 


This is for the November Crafty Chefs recipe:  I managed all except the pearls/gems because I didn't thinks they suited the wild garden; and that's why I used a natural fibre ribbon and the wooden button, which was made by my clever hubby.  I love this pic with those little wild creatures, and those yummy autumn blackberries.

Must have: Mirror card, at least 3 layers, ribbon, an image of garden visitors.

Can have: sparkle/glitter, pearls/gems,  dry emboss.

Stitched die: DieNamics

I (heart) Carl

 Scribbles Designs challenge for October is Feature a Creature.  I chose Carl, a special froggy.


I used my new gelli plate to make the background, swiping inks and brayering etc.  It makes a lovely texture and I got a couple of prints each time.  I added a bit more interest to the background by making twinkles with a sakura clear Stardust pen which, amazingly, I managed to show up in the photo.

Image: scribblesdesigns-carl-i-you  

Embossed Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts

Speech Bubble die: X-cut

Also:  D. inks & D.Oxide inks (watered and made to splatter on Carl before he was cut out), gold mist, perfect pearls mist, Sakura clear Stardust pen.

Cosy up

 

One of the nice things about some days is that you can just curl up with a book, a drink and a treat, and not worry about anything else.  Indulgent but so restoring.
I haven't sent this to anyone yet (I'm enjoying it myself for a while) so have ticked the boxes yet.  The paper and some elements are from Pixel Scrapper. The books are from Oddball Art.  Also WinkofStella  on the icing of the cookies.  I love the blue and green together.

Bouquet

 

This fold is called a double point fold, and I can't remember where I got the instructions.
I attached it to a base card so it stands up. 
The diecut labels are edged with gold embossing powder.
Pink is also appropriate for October Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Dies: Spellbinders

Leaves are cut from the patterned paper; the p.paper has sugary sparkle on parts of it

 Incy Wincy has a FANTASY theme this time. Join us and check out the design team's inspiration, here:

Thanks to Polkadoodles who provided the image, get it here: polkadoodles-hooray-sparkle-unicornSee the sparkle on horn, stars and hearts.  I used the yarn because I thought it looked like a unicorn mane and tail.

Sorry for the weird configuration (well a mess really), I can't get to grips with the new blogger at all! I could get the writing alongside the picture in the old format, but don't seem to be able to do that anymore.  If anyone knows how to, please contact me with instructions!
