Allsorts - So cute

This week at Allsorts the theme is So cute, an easy one :) I used this old Magnolia image, coloured with Distress ink Broken China and Pumice Stone and I put some Diamond Stickles on the wings to make them shine a bit extra. A bunch of flowers and nothing extra since I love the colour of the background paper and wanted it to show. The center of the daisy is bright orange in original but that was not what I was going for so I painted it with white acrylic. 

And our sponsor this week:
Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley and David Wharton. 

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by old original drawings and typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!

🍭Allsorts - Pets🐶🐱

This week at Allsorts Ellie chose the theme 🐹 Pets 🐰, so let's see those projects featuring our furry friends. I chose the adorable dog Patch from Lili of the Valley, coloured with distress ink Frayed Burlap and placed it on a die cut background that I coloured with a mix of Distress ink Tumbled Glass and Perfect Pearls. The colours went well with the vintage note paper and the turqouise bow. The die cut notes are glossed to get some extra texture. 

Today is my grandson's third birthday so celebrations are in order. And four days later it's his little brother's first birthday. Bad planning from the parents I would say ;)

Allsorts - embossing

This week at Allsorts Kath set the theme to Embossing, wet or dry. 
So I made a white card with white butterflies 🦋, and embossed some swirls in the corners. The butterflies are from Ebay, the swirl stamp is a favourite from Stempelglede. The jury is still out on the golden pearl-dot on the butterflies 🤔 but it's dry now so it can't be helped :) 

Postal service is still sparse in the UK so no prize to be shipped this week.

🍭Allsorts - summer sunshine 🌞

Morning, this week Wendy set the theme on Allsorts to summer sunshine, main colour yellow 🟡. 

I made a card (that looks more orange than yellow so you'll have to take my word for it when I blame the light in the photo) using some fresh flower paper, made a double belly band with punched edges and a big ribbon bow. A nice card for an early summer event such as a graduation 😉
