3d Piecing and a TOOT TOOT!

About time I did a new post and I have quite a bit to post about! I have been crafting every day lately, in fact there are at least three to four cards that I've sealed and sent in the mail before I had the chance to photograph them! (shock!) But I've taken photos of a few that I will have to upload when I can!

Firstly this card...
I used the Saturday sketch over on Lauren's blog for the base and was trying to go for vintage colours, slightly shabby chic! wanted to use it for the arty girls challenge this weeks it's
'Vintage'..... so you could use a vintage photograph on your creation, give your creation an aged effect, or go shabby chic use old ribbon or lace etc. As always you choose the format for your creation. (not sure it follows the format!).....
Had a little fun with this image and paper pieced different areas that I then raised on foam and embellished with gell pen and touch of glitter! Very pleased with how it turned out! She's such a cutie to work with! I also made the badge with safe back for fastening!

Paper: Daisy Bucket-Magical Moments, white & brown card,
Die's: Cut'bg tag, Sizzix number,frames circles,

Woo Ho a little toot toot from me, I've been featured on the very talented Katharina's blog- I nearly fell off the chair when I got the email from her! I was thrilled and incredibly honoured that Katharina picked my card as her YAOB this week. You're a real inspiration to us! and your kind acknowledgement means so much, I'm still smiling... lol!!!
Thanks for stopping by, sorry there's not enough time to blog when the crafting is in full flow, will upload more soon! HuGs Kim x
