Globecraft & Piccolo Canvas

Morning everyone, it is Tuesday which means some Globecraft & Piccolo inspiration from me. 
I have been creating with some of the new release this week, and have created a mini canvas. 
This was so fun to do. I coloured the canvas using Distress inks and then stamped along the bottom using Tall Grassy Flowers Stamp, i then dabbed adhesive fluid across the grasses and sprinkled a mix of Mermaid Tears Embossing enamel & Aged White across and heat set, I then took two of the new 3D Enamel Gels  and randomly dotted them to give them the look of flowers. 
The birds are from the Lil flowers, Leaves, Birds & Bows set and I have given them two coatings of UTEE in White and then rubbed some gold wax over them. 
The sun is from one of the new Piccolo Sets, Spring Accents, I did something slightly different with the sun.I cut it so it would fit in the corner  & then used my black Spectrum Noir and Coloured it so it was all black (including the edges), I then gave it a thin layer of 3D Enamel Gel In Daffodil Pearl, whilst it was still wet I sprinkled some Aged White over it and heat set, I then took the 3D Enamel Gel In Daffodil Pearl and put another layer on and waited 5-10 mins before wiping some of the gel away…I really love effect this has given and will certainly be using it more in the future. 
I hope you like my mini canvas, don’t forget to check back each day for some wonderful creations from the rest of the fab team.

Globecraft & Piccolo Bubble frame

Morning everyone, it is Tuesday, which means Globecraft & Piccolo day from me
Have you been and checked out the new Spring release ? there is some fantastic items in the release, so if you haven’t checked it out, then what you waiting for ! 
Onto what I have been creating this week. 
I have used one of the fab Bubble Frame kits, the one I have used is the new French Oval Kit, and it is beautiful ! 
I wanted to go with a vintage/shabby style with it…
What do you think ? I was really happy with how it turned out. 
On the actual frame I have painted it with Off white paint, and then used a Crackle glaze, once dry I used Distress stain, which i rubbed all over and then buffed off. 
The edges of the frame and French oval I rubbed some gold wax. 
Inside the Bubble I have used the new Stacey’s stacking flowers, which are brilliant and so versatile ! I used Aged White Embossing Enamel & Copper Kettle Embossing Enamel on the flowers and trimmed them so they sat around the edge of the frame, I also “lifted” some of the petals to give some dimension to them.
I have also used one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Accents set and one of the flourishes from Medium Flourish Accents set, i embossed these using Bahama Aqua Embossing Enamel
Here is a closer look at the butterfly…
You can also see the crackle and the beautiful frame better in this picture. 
I hope you like what I have been creating this week, don’t forget to check back everyday and see what the rest of the team have been creating, and why not head on over to our Facebook page and share what you have been creating too. 
Happy crafting. 

Dare…

Morning everyone, I do hope everyone is safe with this awful weather. 
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. 
Here is a list of colours and items used-
