Skinni and ATC


Another beautiful day I made these last night after watching the TENNIS ALL DAY bliss and so many fantastic matches. I had been watching the historical match between Isner and Mahut for two of the three days. Also some great matches with Federa, Nadal oh I love it and it's been thrilling (more than I can say for the silly FB although DH is looking fwd to Sunday) and is really enjoying England beating the Aussies in the cricket again (sorry my Aussie viewers xx). Any way I have a very hard to keep secret, I am so excited more about this very soon!


Here is the close up of my Skinni over at SCD this month is Skinni month ant this week is blue & white these are 5x3  or 3x5 pieces and I love them this is my first and I think  am a wee bit late this week oh well I did enjoy doing them and I am also going to use this for the Gingersnap creations (GSC) who have a challenge for shades of blue.


I was enjoying playing with he blues so much  made an ATC as well I have use a Tim Holtz die cut with some  scrap material to make the flower and added some DI so shade it up a bit


Here's a close up I have been playng with some of Tim's DIs on my craft sheet adding water then putting card stock in drying and then added again then drying then putting through the cuttle bug to dry emboss then more stamping, I put some versamark on a stamp then some DI and then stamped I then added some clear EP and heated (these techniques were used on both the skinni & the ATC) I just then added the flower and stamped some images on white card stock and added these as well and a bit of ribbon, buttons and some deco glitter and Bob's your uncle (as they used to say) hope you like these and they give you some inspiration to create something  to. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Inks, Tim Holtz Distress Inks (DI) versamark. Stamps, Crafty Individuals. Cuttle Bug Emboss Folders (EF) and clear Emboss Powder (EP) Stampin Up Card Stock (CS)

Hi sweetie, thank you for your lovely comments about Dolly! Now I am sorry to have to say that I don't own a fabric shop but wouldn't that be soooo brilliant!!!! When my Mum stopped dressmaking she gave me her left over fabric pieces and I have added to that from when I made garments for other people. Though it seems like a shop sometimes hahaha XXXXX
