You Light up my Life

Pattie's Creations challenge for the next 2 weeks is VINTAGE, and how super as I love vintage!! The effects of distressed and curled edges, antique lace, and pearls, all conjure up a past era. Obviously you are going to need a digistamp to enter the challenge, and what better than one of Pattie's Creations, so DO pop into her SHOP, as she has put some amazing new images in there, including this fantastic chandelier image I have used for my DT card. When you've made your card, head on over to her BLOG and enter it under Mr Linky to put yourself in the winning line!
I used antique-looking papers, wet the edges then curled them, and I chalked some fine beige lace that I had in my stash with a rusty brown ink. The image was coloured with Copics, and silver and clear glitter glue added.
Looking forward to seeing what you have made for the challenge #38.

Valentine or Love

Pattie's Creations challenge for the next 2 weeks is VALENTINE or LOVE. And this is just in time for Valentine's Day so get cracking and make those cards, and ensure that the special person in your life is spoilt rotten!! Obviously you are going to need a digistamp to enter the challenge, and what better than one of Pattie's Creations, so DO pop into her SHOP, as she has put some amazing new images in there, including the Pattieboop bathtime I have used for my DT card. When you've made your card, head on over to her BLOG and enter it under Mr Linky to stand a chance of winning a prize!
I made something different this time. I thought ... what would I like for Valentine's Day? And I realised that I would actually prefer something that came from the heart, rather than the local shopping mall! So, my "card" is actually a pocket with 2 tags, with each tag offering a pampering treat such as a bubblebath, or a day to be treated like a queen. I used Pattie's Pattieboob Bathtime image, coloured it with Copics, added clear glitter and dimension to the bubbles, then shape cut and chalked the edges.
Hope you like it, and I can't wait to see what you create with Patties images!
