About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 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

This is my DT entry for this fortnight

For this card I used ivory pearlescent cardstock. I stamped the background using Viva Decor - Letters and Embellishments stamp with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I coloured the image using promarkers and then painted over with Liquid Acrylic White Pearl just to blend in the image with the pearlescent cardstock. I trimmed with lace and distressed the edges of the card with Vintage Photo. I took an old dressing gown that is not used anymore in smokey pink satin material and recycled it into this rossette rose (tutorial on how to create this - alittleshabbychic on YouTube). Added the centre from some old recycled jewellery, distressed the edges of some matching pink satin ribbon to give a real shabby look and a couple of ivory pearl bead trim lengths to tie in with the pearl beaded centre
