Anything but a card Monday at Catch the Bug

 Good Afternoon to everyone.

It's all quiet in the house, Brian is asleep in his recliner as he just got home from  having his treatment so I am trying to be quiet!!! not an easy task for me lol so I shall go in my craft room after finishing this post and do some colouring.

Today is Anything but a card Monday over at Catch the Bug and I have a plaque to show you I made for my friend in the UK (miss you).

I started with a blank artist canvas board and watered down some Claudia Hellmuth pink acrylic paint as I wanted it to be like a washed look when finished . I attached some antique lace I founds in the souq here and also some seam binding, flowers and butterfly all from Wilds Orchid Crafts.

The image I used is from the Bug store and called Heels Polka Dot which I coloured with Copic and the Tim Holtz die is called Bird Cage, love this die and use it quiet a lot.

The sentiment is computer generated

 Pearls and pins from my stash.


Wild Orchid - Pink and Green

Stamp a Lot - Take Flight

Crafty Ribbon - Seeing Dots

A few peeps emailed me to asked about the tag die I used yesterday and it is from Whimsy Stamps

Thank you for popping by my place again, I love reading your comments and thank you for taking the time to visit me, have a great day all.
