Allsorts - Bring the Bling

Morning, it's my turn to set the theme for Allsorts this week and I figured that since we had a clean and simple last week we should turn up the volume and Bring the Bling.
I made a book card with rhinestones, image from Magnolia, flowers from I.am.roses and Stickles platinum all over the place :)



Other challenges:
Time for Magnolia challenges - shabby chic or vintage
Simply Magnolia - Anything goes
The shabby tea room - inspired by the photo (a soft spring wedding card)
Iamroses - anything goes
Tildas Town - anything goes

Allsorts - quick and simple

Time for another challenge at Allsorts and this week the theme is Quick and Simple. Well, I stamped the image from Nellie Snellen in the corner, coloured it and embossed the sentiment. Swift faux stitching around the edges and done.
And this week we have fabulous prizes from Marianne Design, you do not want to miss out! I wish I could enter.

Allsorts - Bingo

Morning all,
this week Tracy has given us a bingo board to work with as a challenge for Allsorts. I chose Lace, Flowers and Pearls and made a wedding card in soft cream and white. I think the old Hanglar image enchanced the vintage feel.

So hop over to the Allsorts blog to see all the details about this week's Bingo challenge.


Sentiment is a freebie found here.

Allsorts - Easter

Morning all,
we're in the middle of the Easter holiday so an Easter challenge at Allsorts sounds just about perfect! I made an Easter egg by taking a cheap store-bought egg (you know the ones with the horrid colours and pattern), painting it with my home-made gesso* and decorating it with flowers and lace.


*Home-made gesso:
1/4 cup Talcum Powder, 1 tablespoon White All purpose School Glue, 1 tablespoon White Craft Paint Add some Water if you want it thinner.
