One Stop Craft Challenge: Pastels

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT card for One Stop Craft Challenge where our theme this week is 'Pastels'. I chose to use some of my favourite First Edition papers, Spring Feast. I coloured my Tilda stamps with Promarkers, Copics and Flexmarkers and cut around her with an oval nestie. I then cut a coordinating scalloped oval nestie as my mat. Next I covered the base with two papers, and then added another layer of paper as a border, where I also added American Crafts polka dot ribbon. I placed the image on another panel of paper and cardstock and placed this in the middle. I embellished using Wild Orchid Crafts roses and butterflies cut with dies. Lastly I added little pearls.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Card Crafters Circle: Die-ing to impress you

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.
