The secret is out! I am a DT member for SCD YAY!!!

You can not imagine how happy I was to be asked to join this talented bunch of ladies to play. And you can't believe how hard it was not to tell any one. I read the e-mail at least three times to make sure they were asking me to be on the team. As I have been a GDT member a few times before (and loved it)I thought how nice it would be for this to be my first full time DT roll as I have been playing and being inspired to do new things (inchies twinchies etc) with these ladies for ages and now I am one of them, little ol' me YAY! So I have been playing with all sorts to make my 1st appearance a good one (I hope). Now for July it's tags and every week a different theme so do join in if you can xx.


So Laura's theme over at SCD for this week is 'Are you sitting comfortably?' I can tell you I was a wee bit scared, my first go and I thought what on earth am I going to do? I kept thinking of the iconic saying, I'm sure it's watch with mother, and I also kept thinking of story time, so I made a very comfy if not very extravagant chair  ha ha for some one to read a beautiful story to me. I do hope you like it. Please be sure to visit the SCD challenge site for ideas from all the other wonderful Design Team I am sure you will find plenty to inspire you. I do hope you can join in and play with tags with us this month as I would love to pop round and see what you have come up with.


OK, how did I create it? well, first I used lots of blue alcohol inks on some glossy CS then stamped this beautiful chair on  it and cut it out. Then with some scraps of fleecy material I cut to size then stamped it with some stazon to make my nice comfy chair. I then got some Co'Ordinations CS sanded it a little and added some delicate, almost luminous lace and some beautiful blue lace for the actual holder/attach bit. A TH ticket inked up with some DIs and finally a clock face so you have the tile 'STORY TIME' clever eh?  I hope you like my very first appearance at Something Completely Different I am really quite nervous. Love Dawn xx


Items Used:- Stamps, Oxford Impressions. Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks, Ranger. Ticket, Tim Holtz (TH) Card Stock (CS) Co'Ordinations and  Ranger glossy. Lace my stash. Clock face, Craft time.
