One lucky lady - two wins within a few days!

Hi and welcome.  I so hope 2014 will turn out to be a fabulous year for all my friends family and followers, and am thinking of all those caught up in the terrible storms today - please stay safe.

Well 2013 finished on a high when I won Blog Candy from my dearest friend Avril (my adopted daughter!) and then on the first day of January I was the lucky winner of a £40 voucher from the Imagination Crafts Challenge, so things have certainly started well for me.

I have a project to show you which I did before Christmas but have only just got round to blogging it!!!  It started life as a plain mdf box and now.....................

I started off by using Indigo Blu English Cottage Wimberry Pie, Park Lane, and Pebeo Bermuda Acrylic Paints.  I splodged (a technical term!) all three colours onto the box and then dabbed it with kitchen towel so that it blended all three into each other.  ( I watched Kay Helliwell do this technique on C and C). Next I stamped the Wrought iron Corner from Creative Expressions with Jet Black Staz on and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  The frame was made with the Katy Sue mould, using Martha Stewart's white clay which I coloured with Distress ink.  The cameo is a Hobbycraft stamp.  Finally I added the two little butterflies which were in my stash.

Hope you like it - Till next time ....................
