white on white


 
these 2 cards are sue Wilson designs which I have slightly altered. 
 I have used white pearlescent card and 2 different sentiments
the upper card I tried using the frame stamp and white embossing it before cutting it out

fire and ice


 
these 2 cards were demonstrated by sue Wilson using the technique she has called 'fire and ice'
the 'fire' is gilding flakes on a stamped image which is covered in a double sided sticky sheet then that is covered in iced snow glitter jewels from cosmic shimmer which gives the 'ice' layer.
quite stunning in real life.
 
after my visit to ally pally this weekend and seeing the ever gorgeous crafting goddess Sue Wilson and the equally ravishing and talented Sam Poole I thought it was time for me to get crafty again!!

kumihimo


 
I was off work sick for a week and watched Kleshna on create and craft tv with this intriguing technique I have not seen before, so I got myself some supplies to try it out.
 
this is my very first attempt at kumihimo braiding using black and silver threads.
the result is incredibly satisfying!!
this is just a starter kit that has made enough for a bracelet.  I will try and attach the findings next!
I have already ordered myself a selection of colours and threads and hope to progress onto beaded kumihimo soon!!
if I can do it anyone can! lol!

peace on earth

 
here's a rarity.... a card that I have designed myself!!! lol
 
I recently got some viva d├ęcor 3d stamp paint and used it to colour the heartfelt decorative lattice swirl which I used around the sentiment.  the colours are beautiful and give a sort of crystal like lustre.
the sentiment and candle are also heartfelt creations.
