Now those who are on my Facebook page would have seen me saying how fantastic the new Spectrum Noir pencils are…I truly love am in love with these pencils !! 
Spectrum noir challenge  is currently Masculine, so I decided to to make a card and enter…and here it is…
I have used the image Dare from Mo Manning, the sentiment also comes with the image, I decided to go for a travel feel to the card…and of course had to be vintage ! 

Here is a closer look at Dare…I have used the pencils to give definition on this image and I cannot believe how fantastic they blend….I have not even used blending solution ! I really think these will take your colouring to another level and cannot recommend them enough…I was very silly and only got the Essentials set, but I will be purchasing the other sets. I know currently these are only available on Create & Craft, But I *think*  they will be released elsewhere around April time.

That Craft Place Anything goes/Christmas.

Morning all, I can’t believe it is Christmas in just a few days !!! This year certainly has flown by ! 
It is time for our last challenge at That Craft Place, and the theme is Christmas/Anything goes ! 
Here is my design team make for this challenge….
I decided to make a Mixed Media Canvas for this challenge, I love doing these (I have been asked for a tutorial so will be doing one in the new year), for those of you with a Silhouette you can now get Silhouette Chipboard (Lisa sells it in the Shop) and it is fantastic…It doesn’t handle the delicate designs too well, but on this I created the Honeycomb, the “create” letters, the brackets, Scissors & the flourish. It takes various mediums very well and I have used Distress inks/stains, Gesso & Dylusions on it with no problems at all…so I highly recommend getting some if you are into your chipboard. 
All the other Elements on here are all from the lovely Lisa, including the paints & gilding waxes. 
I hope you like what I have created, and keep your eyes peeled for the tutorial. 
The design team have created some gorgeous makes for this challenge, head on over to the blog to check them out, and why not enter whilst you are there ?

Pick me up book

Morning everyone, a non design team post from me this morning…I really need to start doing more of these !
I have been working on a pick me up book….called so because it is going to be filled with pictures of everyone & everything I love, and also some of my favorite inspirational quotes & sayings. 

Those that know me, know i LOVE all things vintage and distressed, so this seemed like a perfect “theme”. 
The pages of the book & the cover are all made from kraft card, The tags are all made with Papermilldirects hammered card. I also mind the spine with this, and then using Copics, distress inks & waxes I coloured the spine to give it a leather look. 
The main image was watercolour card coloured with distress inks and then spritzed over with some water, once dry I took one of Sheena Douglass’s stamps from her A little bit sketchy range I stamped in Tea Dye Distress ink & then “painted” using bronze mica powder….this picture doesn’t show the mice too well ! 
I then added some frantage & brands. 
The sentiment stamp is from LOTV Dreamy Days Circular sentiment stamps which my dear friend Marilyn got me for my birthday, for a pick me up book the sentiment seemed perfect ! I stamped in Versamark and then brushed gold Mica over the top. 
I then added a kraft rose (tattered florals style svg file), a resin rose, Tim Holtz Pin, Mini peg and mounted them all on some net. 
I am really happy with how it turned out, and will start filling it up today 🙂 I will get some inside photos once I start putting some pictures & quotes in there. 
Have a lovely crafting day x
