Anything but a card

Good morning

It is Friday again and a Bank holiday too (in the UK) so double celebration time. And not forgetting also the launch of a new challenge at Alphabet Challenge.
We have now reached the letter A which this fortnight is for Anything but a card so here is my canvas (or 3) for the challenge - 

This is my 2nd attempt at mixed media (the first ended up in the bin). I had a lot of help and inspiration from Pinterest and You Tube and am very pleased with the results.
I have used - 

  • matt black card
  • Tattered Lace corner die (sorry I don't have the name but it is an old one)
  • acrylic paints
  • Pebeo silver gilding wax
  • tissue paper
  • Marion Emberson love story script stamp
  • Crafter's Companion sentiment stamp set - love is all you need
  • wooded letters
  • dream and love words (from Michaels in the USA)
  • lots of metal and wooden charms that I have collected over the years
  • purple embossing powder
  • purple and silver glitter
  • wooden butterflies and hearts
  • Crafter's Companion Scruffy Little Cat paper pad

Phew think that is everything!!

These are close ups of each of the individual canvases

I do hope you are able to join in the fun this fortnight. Why not pop over to the Alphabet Challenge blog to see what my fellow teamies have made to inspire you.

Have a lovely Easter weekend
