Oh Prawns ...

Appearing on the Silhouette Design Store was a free file by none other than the amazing paper sculpture; Lisa Lloyd whom I just love and totally in awe.  So goes without saying I wanted to play along with the #paperprawn challenge alas I don't have Instagram so my blog will have to do.  Totally loving making these, seven in total so far but cutting some more very soon, watch this space.  My first and main image is made from a cereal packet and looks brilliant, love it.

Happy crafting, Jane x

Thought I would have a whee look at some as yet un inked stamps, oops bad move, seems to be a fair few of them so hoping to rectify this by practising my colouring skills.  I have used the Beary Big Adventure stamps from MFT and coloured with Promarkers first and then pencils.  I have stamped the sentiment first and cut out using the die in Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil & Die Set 'More Sentiments'.  Matted & layered onto a Kraft card blank, Kraft card embossed and using stiched circle dies again from MFT on vellum and digital paper with double sided foam & sticky tape.  A few pearls to finish.

Stay safe love Jane x

Especially for you ...

Treated myself the the Sizzix Spring Box and a few extra goodies so I have been having a play.  So my first one and not very spring like but I know just decided to go monochrome.  The floral paper is from my stash, many moons ago, Papermania Capsule Collection;  Parisienne Blue.  I have used the largest of the Sizzix domes at 3.5", the Bold Flora dies, Navy cardstock, vellum butterflies, gold glitter card and some beads again from Sizzix.  The sentiment is from Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil 'More Sentiments' which includes dies too. Rather elegant and a good size as the card blank is 7x5 to give you an idea.

Bye for now, happy crafting love Jane x
