From cute and cuddly to,inky,and grungy

Hi Guys its freezing here,and so cold,and wet too,still they say we need the rain.
Right well first of all I have made this card for my mum,using the poppet CD which I just had too have as these were my first images,I used to craft with the decoupage,so the CD is  a big bonus,so here it is.

All the papers,apart from the plain pink is from the CD,flowers are from my stash,added some pearls,which I won,from dear Laurie,just added some,stickles glitter,and some die cut leaves.
Then as you know I met the girls on Wednesday and dear Lindsay bought me a set of amazing stamps,bless her heart as she knows I adore anything,like this,such a lovely thing to do and was totally overwhelmed at her kindness,thank you so sweetie love you lots,
So this is a card I made using the stamps,


I have used one of the stamps for the background,then used distress inks,to add to the card,then stamped,and cut out another of the images,and added some pads to give it dimension. Then added some pearl paint to the edge of the die. Then took,another one of the stamps,and cut them out added more pearl paint,and took an old necklace too make the antennae.
Then just finished with an round,the edge peel off.
Now my next creation has taken me ages,I found this old bottle,and used alcohol inks,and crackle paint,and stamps to cover the bottle. I have again used,the stamps for the butterflies,on the sides of the bottle,I actually stamp onto the bottle too,but you cant see it in the photo.



I have used die,s which kind crafter have sent me as I have no,Tim Holtz dies,I have also used,charms,and elements,from the lost and found book, which is available from Michelle's,shop also the tokens,with words on which I have added to the top of the bottle. I used Tissue tape at the bottom,and the lace I placed around the cap,I dyed using some inks.
So that is it for me today hope you like it,welcome to my new followers I cant,follow you as I cannot find your blogs,so if you have one,please leave me a comment on here and I will pop over to say Hi.
Love Cheryl xxx
