There is a colour challenge on Tando Creative Blog each month and its a colour challenge, so you can make anything incorporating the colours.
This months colours are muted pastels...
I used a Tando stencil for the background - Splatters, and some Distress Ink. The flowers were die cut and then doodled around. And for once I didn't sew on the card! Felt a bit strange not sewing round the edges but I quite liked the simplicity of it as it was. And it was quicker. Which is good. :)
Fancy the challenge? Pop along to the Tando Blog and see what the designers have made and give it a go!
As the mask is curved to fit the face, I had to apply the Viva Decor in stages. I did try applying it in one sitting but made a bit of a mess with the stencil moving, so started again and did it bit by bit. Its not perfect, but I'm quite happy with the end result. I added some black organza ribbon to finish it off.
This was for the Tando Creative blog, pop along and see what everyone else has been doing with this weeks black and gold theme.
With Christmas and beyond in mind I've been decorating some plain wooden pots in a shabby chic style.
These were plain wooden pots which I sanded down and then painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint and then decorated with snowflakes, reindeer, leaves, stars and more. Some were wooden shapes and some were Tando chipboard shapes.
I've actually made a Christmas card. Well two actually but not so happy about one of them.
The background on this one is made using the Joined Snowflakes Tando Creative stencil and the gorgeously glittery snowflake is die-cut, as is the 'merry'.
Every year I try and be a bit more ahead of myself and each year I am here in November annoyed at myself for not having made a start and mithering at how busy the next few weeks are going to be with me wanting to make EVERYTHING for the festive season.
Realistically I am not going to have time to make all my cards, all my crackers, gorgeously wrap every single present, hand make decorations and prepare a wonderful centrepiece for the table, etc.
