Stamp one of the large flower heads from the funky flowers set and emboss with razzleberry plum. Fill the gaps with one of the swirls from the stamp plate using broken china distress inks.
So what was on my work hob today? Messy week for me yay! We have starburst stains, moonglow embossing powder. I keep my favourite EP's in a pencl case, the rest are in a drawer in my craft room. The box on the right holds my favourite inkpads so its memento, versamark, versafine, brilliance black and several distress inks although today I'm playing with broken china yaaaaaayyyyy!! Ive actually bought the reinker 3 times and have never owned the inkpad as everytime I've remembered to buy it its been sold out so I got that at the weekend. The SWAK glimmer mist I'm not too thrilled with, I was comparing it to a pink starburst stains and the SS is still my first love :) Bottle of bleach, Kay Carley's funky flowers stamp set I also got at weekend and my noisy heat gun. I *really* want one of those quiet hair dryer type ones but can't justify it until this one packs in.
Here's my take! I've used an image by Pollycraft coloured with promarkers and coloured the hearts on the dress with an orange sakura stardust pen. The ribbon has been dyed wth a yellow promarker and the faux stitching is a sakura souffle pen. I used a martha stewart punch (my one and only one!) and sprayed the whole card with diamond dazzles glimmer mist.

This is Molly and she is my icklest baby. Molly is very mischievous and VERY VERY messy! She was 2 last month and a couple of weeks ago I bought her some winnie the pooh pots to paint. All was going well until I left the table to make a drink and came back to her like this!! She is always up to nonsense, you cannot turn your back on her! Last week she 'washed' the stairs with quarter of a bottle of fairy liquid - my vax was NOT happy! Then it was the glamour dust poured over the duvet - you get the picture...
Anyway there is a challenge blog specifically for kids called Kona Kid Krafters and their challenge is "Bling it Up" so Miss Mookins got to work today on her creation below :) She used some gems, pasta I've dyed with starburst stains so its sparkly, glitter glue and crayons lol! I liked that she knew to use a green crayon which you cant see much but she did it. This was zero help from me, I was gabbing on phone to Jill from Stampman whilst Mols created.
So if you're looking for something to amuse the kds over the summer check out Kona Kid Krafters blog :D
I want to see your array of styles, colours, anythng you like. You'll find us HERE so pop over and show us ya stuff! There are a few pointers to the challenge listed below...
Here's what I made. I've used Aspects of Design Starburst Fairies which is stamped and embossed with moonglow midnight teal embossing powder. The fairies were not embossed to give an mpresson of them being further away. The background is made with adirondack inks in cool peri, pool, sailboat blue and pitch black by using a brayer to put the cool peri all over the card then using a corner of a piece of kitchen roll to gently swipe the darker colours in from one edge giving a graduated effect. The card its mounted on is actually holographic silver though it looks white in the pic.
Hope you pop over to the blog and join in!

I digress lol! Yes my desk today...
Bit of a mix bag today as I didnt tidy away from last night (naughty!) so have aspects of design starburst fairies set, brayers, peel off corners from yesterdays, the gesso and the large letter M which I'm doing for The Stampman, my entire collection of blue promarkers as I was in a blue mood but not sure which shade so I got them all out to see which ones I'm drawn to, some 3d gloss which I used on the eyes and wings of the dragon (Lisa Victoria stamp) my glamour dust which is now no more after Molly got hold of it this afternoon and decorated the duvet with it, pearl glimmer mist and my blackberry :)
I also got some new additions at home! I won the goldfish (Nuzzle) at the front at a fair a couple of weeks ago and promptly went to a local aquatic specialist nearby and asked what he needed for him and a friend. Came home with 2 bowls and 3 more fish, 2 are shubunkins aka poor mans Koi. Anyway after much reading I discovered a bowl isnt suitable for one let alone 2 goldfish which is what I was advised so ended up upgrading them to a tank. As the tank has lights I spotted the goldfish (Scratch) I bought from the aquatic centre had white spot so went out and got treatment for it but it didnt make it :( So now we just have Nuzzle & no scratch and Ethan called the shubs Hide & Seek as they were very shy when we first got them. Nuzzle is showing signs of it too, yesterday he had some faint white spots on his tail and is showing signs of stress with the lowered fins but they're all being treated with malachite green and aquarium salt. I hope he makes it as I'd be gutted to lose my fairground fish! He seems much happier this evening thankfully :)
I can spend ages watchng them, very relaxing and they're all very nosy!
