OSAAT 'Love'

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT card for One Stitch at a Time where our theme is 'Love'. I used an image of a blue tit and coloured it with Promarkers. I decided the image suited the Prima Reflections paper so chose that as my base and for my scalloped circle mat for my image :-) I also used ribbon and a 'With Love' greeting by Papermania.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss: KISS
Card Makin Mamas: CAS
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards: Birds
Stampin With the Dragon: In the Winter Garden
Sweet and Sassy Digi: Anything Goes
Sweetpea Stamps: CAS no embellishments

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!

Beauty and the Beast Sparkling Black Rose Lamp

Hey everyone, I hope you are well. I am here to share a personalised version of the rose in the Beauty in the Beast. (To represent my username sparklingblackrose!) I found a gorgeous velvety rose on etsy, a small bell jar, some silver wire leds with a remote and I got out my mica pigment from my stash.

I drilled a hole into the bottom of the base to make sure the flower stood up unsupported. I then cut away any leaves on the stem which were too wide for the jar. I got out my black mica pigments and painted them onto the edges of the flower petals and let them dry.
I then arranged the lights on the base and around the flower, lastly attaching the end of the lights to the top of the jar with a tiny bit of white tack.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Come and Get it Challenges: Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle: Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration: Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart: Anything Goes
Allsorts: Anything but a card
