Fashionably late... nope just plain rude!!!

I'm really gutted haven't been able to post and play for a while but I've had a really bad fibro flare :( However, you still have a week left to play with us eclectic girlies :) the challenge this month is outside your comfort zone!

 I've been Loving the Stampotique creations that I've been seeing hopping around.  To me there is an eclectic mix of bright colours, fun and a little bit of grunge in the projects I have been admiring... reet up my street.  I have been really inspired by the wonderful owner of the Kathrywheel blog, her journal soup classes are just Awesome. I hadn't yet had a try so I treated myself to 2 new stamps and I have just been loving playing with them . I was further inspired by one of the challenges at the Stampotique blog, use stitching, way way outside my comfort zone.


 I am so super chuffed with how this turned out :)  My eldest daughter is taking her GCSEs and I am consumed with thinking of her and her  friends and what difficult time of life this is for them.  I love how this card is still fun and girly but not too cute and young for a teenager,   I think the stamps really help with this.



 I had no idea what I was doing when I started making these flowers. I just twiddled the string around caught it upwith the needle and fastened them off . They really add cool  dimension and texture.  it's something I will definitely be having a go at again .

 Something else that is completely outside of my comfort zone are shaker cards.  The sun is a mini shaker that I made using the packaging from Tim Holtz ideology Buttom package .  I then used my thread needle again and added little rays for the sun .

 I completed the card by using a faux stitch die down the side , and a hugs and kisses die.
 I popped the cutout part of the hugs and kisses die through the holes so you could also see them from the inside. I stand out we believe in you sentiment with the new lemon citrus ranger ink and voila.


 Again my apologies for being so late, hope you like it .

 Take care
Tracey :)
