Alice in Wonderland ATC's

Here are some more decoupaged ATC's from the MCS  'A Very Important Date' CD.

Alice and the White Rabbit
The Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit
The Caterpillar
The background used comes from the CD.  I love these illustrations and feel that they stand on their own without the distraction  of embellishments. I think the Cheshire Cat is enough to give you nightmares and the Caterpillar is no beauty.

CD Sunday - Going round in circles

I am away at the moment enjoying some quality crafting time with a friend so I have scheduled this post.  Jenny is also kindly posting the CD Challenge for me.  Thank you Jenny.

Here is the card I have made for this theme which has been chosen by our Jocelyn.

Joanna Sheen - Jane Shasky - 'from the heart of the garden'.  
I love these butterflies and I  have used them  a couple of times.  They are from the CD as well.
I will catch up with you all on my return.
Take care and have fun.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum

I was having a wander in MCS for something different for some ATC's and found Tweedledee and Tweedledum from the 'Very Important Date' folder.  I love the artwork so I had a little play to get the sizing just right for the decoupage on the ATC and here they are.

Four layers altogether and the backing paper is also from the folder.
I think you could say that they have 'attitude'.

I hope all are enjoying the sunshine.  I had a workshop day with Judith Maslen yesterday.  Great day as always and I will post my efforts when I have finished adding a bit of this and a bit of that.

CD Sunday - Simply Red

Good Morning.
First of all I would like to thank you all for your 'Quotations'.  My Top 3 choice has been posted on the Challenge Blog.  I have been making lots of parchment flowers so that I can actually part with some to send to the winner.

Wendy has chosen our theme this week and for this I used Deco Delights CD  by Kraftyhands. There are some beautiful colour choices on this CD.... and some lovely figures....grrrr. 

There are a couple of layers of decoupage and the addition of some black and crystal gems. I have this in mind for a girlfriend whose  birthday is this month. I know that she likes the Deco style.
Keep well.

Fancy Dies by Nellie Snellen

I was perusing You Tube - as one does and came across this little bit of film and was really taken by the dies and what you could do with them.

So I bought the oval set and one set of the flowers bits and this is what I made.

The butterfly was one already made and in my stash.  I also found the background card in my box of ones waiting to be used some time.  The purple peel off gems were also ones found in a box -  and I had often looked at them and wondered when I was going to be able to use them.  We all have so much in what we lovingly call our 'stash'. As the dies were the only new things used for this card  I am pleased to have used up some stash.

But there is always a downside..... I have now bought the circles and the other three 'flower' dies.
Oh well!!

Pergamano Multi grid 14

We had a lesson using our tutors design with Multi Grid No: 14

We also used a Pergamano Wing Tool and a Star tool.  Then small flower and leaf punches with green and purple vellum and some purple mini gems.  I chose to add gold peel offs to mine to finish off.


We had a wonderful day at the Make It Show yesterday.  Quite a few new things to see.  I might be going back tomorrow but I think I am brewing something so I may not bother.
