Crafty Catch Up

Afternoon lovely friends and followers and hoping that this post finds you well.

Thought I'd do a bit of a Crafty catch up and get back to some serious blogging.

Thank you for all your terrific support and will be hoping over to leave some 
bloggy love xxx

Over the past couple of weeks I have been experimenting with some messy stuff
including some delicious embossing folders and paint and what a lovely fun
time I have had.

Sharing some of my most recent creations - hope you like.

Love and crafty hugs Judith xxx

This first one started off as a boring piece of patterned paper - this was
inked with twinkling H2Os then embossed with a Sheena Douglas
Taste of India embossing folder then burnished with pebeo gilding wax

The Cream background is linen card embossed with a Sheena Douglas
"Oriental" embossing folder and gilded with pebeo gilding wax.
The panel started off with a piece of Sheena Douglas "Oriental" paper
which I painted with twinkling H2Os then embossed with from memory
Coutre Creations Sunshades embossing folder - then painted some more and gilded with
pebeo gilding wax.  
The fan is tattered lace.  The flower is a Desire Quilling flower - these quilling dies are fab.

I would like to support the following Challenges -

This Book was made by using Black Card and one of Sheena Douglas'
"Oriental" Embossing folders.  The Embossed Card was then coloured
with inks and gilded with pebeo gilding wax.

This one is a canvas on which I used an Imagination Crafts Stencil with
sand texture paste - the paints are pebeo acrylic and I also used some
gilding wax.

I would like to support the following Challenges -
