OSCC Mothers Day

Good morning everyone, so sorry for my absence recently-the virus I caught led to a nasty throat infection which has damaged my vocal chords-so I have been trying to rest and hope it goes away soon, its better than it was but not gone yet-its very frustrating having no voice!
Anyway I am here with a card for our Mothers Day challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge this week. I used a Saturated Canary image which I tried something a bit different with. I printed the image on patterned canvas-(Sarah Hurley digi polka dot paper I had printed already) and then cut the dress out. I coloured the image with Copics and promarkers, then decoupaged the dress and hair to make the image 3D and to give the dress a material like texture. I coloured on the canvas in nude colour to accent the shadows and creases of the dress.
I used First Edition Spring Feast papers, American Crafts ribbon, My Minds Eye butterflies cut with a Sarah Hurley SVG file and gems. I then added a 'Have a fabulous day' dome greeting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary: Good v Evil
Stamping with the Dragon: Anything Goes
Sweet n Sassy Digi Challenge: Girl Time
Moving Along with the Times: Lovely Ladies
Divas By Design: Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy: Anything Goes

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
