Moroccan Cupboard

Hellooooo!  Today I have a 3D project using Kate Crane's Ministry of Mixology (April2017) dividers and a host of other Tando bit and pieces.  When I was doing Kate's class in April I could see straight away that they could be shelves so I have made a little cupboard!

and open...

I used:

Kate Crane's MOM Divided Box
Moroccan Grid
Lace Effect Border
A Key from the Mini Keys pack
Plain Chipboard Sheets for doors
DecoArt Mixed Media Paints : Quinacridone Voilet, Cadmium Orange Hue & Quinacridone Gold
DecoArt Weathered Wood
DecoArt Tinting Base

There will be a tutorial available so watch this space.

Hugs, Karen x

Banner section 8

Hi there!  Carrying on with Tando's new colour theme, which is very pretty, I have done another section of my banner.  It's a bit tricky to photograph as I have added silver paint to it.

This time I have added some butterflies.  Here are the colours we were asked to use... they are very delicate this time...
Take care, Karen x

The Man's card

Today I have a mans card for you.  There is no chipboard involved but I used the stamps and stencils that Tando Creative sell...

Lightly dry brush some Quinacridone Gold over the Kraft Card and when that is dry do the same with Cobalt Turquoise and a little Primary Magenta.  When dry overstamp with Nathalie Kalbach's MARKS stamp in Archival Black.  Dab some white acrylic through the Mini Mask Numbers as shown.
Stamp the eye from Andy Skinners Curiosity stamp set using Archival black and colour in (I used the same colours as before but watered down)  Cut out and attach to the centre of the base using a sticky pad.  Dry brush some white acrylic around the outside.  Attach the panel to a white card base.
Thank you for taking a look today, take care, Karen x

Song Title Callenge - July

Its July and its the summer!!!  So the song title for the challenge over at the Craft Barn this month is

"Summer Holiday" by Cliff Richard

Here is my coaster...

I have used some Tando Creative ice creams :-D which was interesting as when I did them it was freezing cold haha! 

So what's your favourite ice-cream? Mine has to be Cornish vanilla with a blob of Cornish clotted cream and a flake...very naughty!

Banner section 7

Hellooooo!!!!!  A new month means another colour scheme from Tando.   I am, of course, adding to my banner and have decorated another pennant. Because last months was quite bold I have used the softer tones of the range this time...

Just look at these lovely summery colours....

I attached some bits and pieces to my pennant before painting it using a light touch.  I added some painted stars for a bit of detail.

Thank you for taking a look today, take care, Karen xxx

As seeon on TV

Hi, today I am here with a few of the makes that I made that were shown on Hochanda TV by Di at Tando Creative  :-D  They are the fabulous BIRDS and what fun they are!!!

You really can't go wrong with these as anything goes!!!  You can go bright and funky like I have or go understated and elegant.  I couldn't resist adding a few feathers (though I am still finding bits of them everywhere haha)  Here they are in more close-ups...

I am still thinking of names for them!!!!  Any ideas? :-D

Take care xxx

Song Title Challenge - June

Hi!  Another month and another song title to challenge us from The Craft Barn.  This month is the beautiful -


- forever in my mind best sung by Louis Armstrong though Rod Stewart's version is amazing!  I have continued my coaster theme and made this...

The tree stamp is a very old one by Judikins but its sooo useful! I ended up sticking on some paper roses as I didn't have any rose stamps.  But I think its alright.  This is month 6 already so here is a peak at my 6 coasters so far...

Now to think of something to fit July's title :-D , Take care out there, hugs xxx
