Good morning lovelies,
Sorry I have been MIA for the last fortnight but a friend of mine has been battling with cancer since last year and on Monday she lost her battle and it left me pretty numb this week. Angela was a larger than life character with a heart of gold and she will be sorely missed by many, many people.
Well I did eventually manage to get my act together and found some peace in my own little crafty world. I really enjoyed using this House of Zandra Mantle Clock template and once constructed it made me think of 'Cogsworth' the clock from Beauty and the Beast!
This fortnights challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges is 'Use a Doily' but please remember you still need to use a product from Basic Grey. I used the beautiful DP's from Kissing Booth as they had a lovely romantic feel.
The gorgeous 'Lovely' from Saturated Canary also really reminds me of Belle from Beauty and the Beast holding the glittery rose before it dies and Beast is trapped forever as a monster!! (sorry love that story). I coloured her with my trusty Pro's and added Star Dust Stickles to the rose head.
The stunning clock face die is from Marianne D, the cogs are from a Spellbinders set and all of the rest of the scrummy dies are from Joy Crafts.
I have faux stitched around the entire clock then distressed with Frayed Burlap DI then added loads of flowers and pearls from my stash.
I must confess this was the second box of Ferrero Rocher I had to buy for these pics as I accidentally ate the first box in a rather large moment of emotional weakness. Anyway just so you know the box very nicely holds 10 choccies (yippee as you actually get 16 in a retail box lol).
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary - #45 'Show Us Your Lovely'
Passion for Promarkers - #202 'Inspired by a Fairy-tale'
A Creative Romance - #1 'Anything Goes'
Deep Ocean - #53 'For a Girl'
Inky Chicks - #6 'Love'
Oldie but a Goodie - 'Stitching' (real or faux)
ABC - 'P is for Pretty in Pink'
Well hopefully I should be back a little sooner to share some more creations but for now that's all from me.
