My first Blog Hop

Hi everyone

Today sees something totally new to me and first ever blog hop! It's in honour of a dear friend Lisa who's not too well at the moment and we thought this would cheer her up. If you  started the hop at the beginning the you would have landed here from Paulinemargaret's blog

So I made this card for no other reason than to show I care and because I love this kit. The kit itself comes from craftsuprint and it's called Time For Tea. I printed all the sheets on to super smooth paper and then mounted the base layer on to a mat gold mirror card and then onto an 8x8" card blank. I cut all the decoupage out and layered up using glue gel. Once it was dry I glazed the watch faces using glossy accents.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will visit all the other members of the hop, Linda is next on the list so please pop over and leave her some love. If you are unable to visit all the ladies, then please do at least visit Lisa's page...I know she would be right chuffed to see you had visited.

Delicious Darkness August Challenge - Anything Goes

Hi everyone, sorry I have been missing lately but I've not been well and I've had lots going on in my personal life....but I'm back and with fab news too!!

As you can see by the badge proudly displayed on the side bar I am now a member of the Delicious Darkness design team, and I'm very excited to be working with Teri's fabulous digital images.

I'm new to the 'dark' side, so I'm both excited and also a little nervous...and I hope I do the images the justice they deserve.....and so on to my first project.

So I started with an A5 white card blank to which I added so silver mirror card and backing paper from a Debbi Moore CD. I chose to use Angel Of Death for my main image, which I've coloured using flex markers in the shades of antique white, cool grey 1, powder blue and sorbet and I mounted firstly on to black card and then the same silver mirror card as the backing paper.

I also used Tombstone 4 and  Pile o' Bones and added these using foam tape to add some dimension. along with some vine corners which I cut using Spellbinder dies.

I do hope you like my first project and that you will join in with us over at Delicious Darkness Challenges. There are a few simple rules to follow of course which are laid out for you to see below:
