The Three Tenors projects

Sharing the three projects I made using the images and sentiments from Beccy Muir's 'The Three Tenors' digi set. 
The images were all printed on white card and coloured with colour pencils and white spirit. Used various dies and embossing folders on the three projects. Sorry for the lack of detail but still suffering for a terrible cold. 
Have a great day.

Beccy Muir's new releases

It's time for another release of digital stamps from the very talented Beccy Muir. You can see the three sets below and can find them in Beccy's Shop. You can also enter this months challenge here

The easel card above is one of the projects I made using the image and sentiment from the Poppies set. I used the pre-coloured image from the set to make the background paper. I added the green background to the main image and printed onto card.  The sentiment was printed and then die cut and layered with Memory box dies. 

Entering this card in the following challenges:

Intruders in my garden!

Hello kitties and human, finally got some blog time. I have had a very hard week. There have been several intruders in my garden which I did not like at all. 
Firstly I had Tom the ginger cat sitting on my neighbours shed and looking at me. I had to go up and tell him he was not welcome here. This was the first time I had to jump on this for ages but I managed. Not bad for a kitty cat who will be 16 years old in thee months. 

Those pesky birds have been coming into my garden on a daily basis. Today I had to put up with three of them all at once! 

Hope you have a very quiet and safe weekend.

Male card

Was asked to make a card yesterday for a college at DH work. I had this PSX stamp for a while and masked out the writing. Used the stamp to make the background for the main image and the basecard. The embossing folder on the next layer is I think from crafters companion. The main image was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder and then coloured with watercolours. 

Thanks for the visit.

Thinking of You

Time to share another set of digital stamps by Beccy Muir. This set is called 'Thinking of you' and has coloured and black and white images. You can find this set and other set in Beccy's shop.

The first card was made from the coloured image in the set. I used it to created a background paper and used the sentiment from the set as the focus. Dies used were Sue Wilson.

For the second card I used the back and white image and coloured it with pencils. The sentiment is also from this set. Dies used in this card were from Tonic.

Have a great day.

Card for a boy

Been trying to tidy my craft room but took a little break to make a card. The grey background was made with viva inka gold paint and a few masks. The larger piece was embossed with the same embossing folder as the red piece but opposite sides were used. The image was stamped and water coloured and cut out with square die. The sentiment was also stamped and die cut. 

Would like to enter this in the following challenge:

My two cents

I have lived in this country for over 20 years and moved here legally. I don't live off the state and love the culture and values of this country. I feel compelled to speak out against this massive wave of illegal migration that is about to happen. It is so disappointing that all the mainstream media is just silencing any reports of criminal activity by these migrants (they are not refugees, they are mostly young strong men). If you want to read some of these reports  I suggest  go to this site BREITBART.
I am afraid of the changes to the wonderful free country we live in, these vast numbers of people will make. I am not a racist and this had nothing to do with race but CULTURE. These men come from a culture where women have no value and no rights, why would we want that here? Women in this country have fought hard for the rights we enjoy, why are some women trying actively to let in people whose aim will be to take it away? The silent majority in this country need to let our voices heard.

Chicken Run set

Happy New Year to all.
It's time for a new release from Beccy Muir. The first set in this month's release is called
 'Chicken Run'. This set contains silhouette images and sentiments. It's a really useful and fun set and you can see what the other DT members have done with it on Beccy's Blog.

For the tote bag, I enlarged the image and printed it out. I then cut the image out and used the waste as  a stencil. I used various fabric paints to colour the image.

The card was made by printing the image onto card. It was then cut with a circle die and then embossed with an embossing folder. The background was made using Brusho crystals (which I have had for many years and enjoy using them), water and watercolour card. The flower  is one of the embellishments I have had for almost 8 years and finally for a use for it. :)

Thank you for looking and you will take a moment to visit Beccy's Blog.
