About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 10 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog - Challenge #28 - Aged/Distressed

Hello everyone, the winner has been chosen for Challenge #27 over at Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog so if you haven't already make sure to head over and check it out.

This fortnight our theme is 

Challenge #28
Aged/Distressed

Here is my DT project a Special Birthday Card




I made this 8"x8" card using Prima Lyric papers, distressed and edged with TH Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I added a cluster of flowers from my stash using a mix of WOC, Recollections and some handmade lace and crochet flowers.  I die cut one of the Cheery Lyn butterflies and tucked in behind a banner I created with Many Happy Returns.  Finished off with some black flat backed pearls on the top and bottom corners and also on the banner. 

This card was custom made for a 75th Birthday card, the recipient is so very happy with it and says it will definitely be one to keep :-).
