LATE Creative,craft challenge and book cover

Hi guys,sorry about my late DT card,but been a hectic few days,family problems,and today got the better of me,with a terrible,headache hence the late post.

Today its time for Creative craft challenge and the theme this week is,make your own backing papers,

Our sponsers,are,RAINBOW STUDIOS,some of us used,there backing papers,me included the prize they are offering are these great stamps,which I used on my card,for this weeks challenge.

we are also sponsered,by craftyindivduals,

I used,distress inks on my card,and a stamp I have had for ages,which I love,matted and layered it,then added more inks,to the papers finished with ribbon,and adhesive stones.

I have also,started on another book, using the viva decor range just love playing with this stuff,so here it is,I have taken all the pages out of this book as I am going to try something different with this one,first i want to show you some of my other pages from my first journal I started.

This page i used,the viva crackle paint then added some mesh into it then when nearly dry just removed it so get the effect.
With this page i painted it black,then added some pictures,then added some Gold viva crackle around the images.

This one I doodled my painting,the pages,then painted the body,added some bits and pieces from magazines for the head.

Now for my new altered book i have just started,

 I again have used the crackle paint,then stamped into the top part with a txt stamp,added some gold viva paint to highlight it all the charms were silver so used the gold to colour them.

The picture at the bottom was printed onto acetate then added to the paint whilst still wet,left for about half an hour then I pulled it off and it left the picture behind,cool hey. All paints,etc are available here at the craft den, postage,only £1
I have also made a card for the cas challenge,this was one of my daughters, wedding invites so hope its okay. my daughter is not having this invatation this was just another of my samples for her to look at.

mustavcoffee, Gay Peplow said...

Wonderful crafting here, lots and lots of interesting cards, Have fun, Gay xxx

Chrissie said...

My goodness you've been really busy here. the invitation looks great although strictly speaking having the name rather than simply the initials is no longer a monogram.
It seems to have been a common trend amongst LIMettes this week.
Thanks so much
