The Paper Shelter #74 Metal Embellishments

hi there,i' m sorry  i'm late with this weeks post, no excuse  just completely forgot!!!!!!
Well I think Summer has arrived in the UK, its so hot I can't get in my Bat Cave, its in the attic and gets all the sun from dinner time, I don't  get to play until evening so its like an oven by then.

 This weeks challenge the paper shelter is to add metal embellies. I've had these in my bit box for years, so I'm pleased I finally found a project to use them on. 
I've used HappyTimes Beach Boy coloured with copics , can't remember where the paper is from, ribbon from my stash, metal anchor and starfish,Little Clare sentiment and Nestie.

Friday Sketch Challenge #22

Hi there, this weeks gorgeous sketch was designed by my lovely teamie Shirley
We also have two sponsors

I used Drop Tree from FlonzCraft embossed with blak embossing powder, the background is brayered  with  a Kaliedercolor ink pad, Basi Grey papers, black cobweb lace, Nesties, Marrianne poinsetta Die and papermania brads.
I must say it's been ages since I used my heat gun and I really enjoyed it, this stamp was just crying out to be embossed, think I might do it again in gold, it might also make a good Christmas card if I pop a partridge on it. Wow the old cogs are spinning now!!

The Paper Shelter #72

Hi there, I didn't think I was going to get this card made in time, we are so busy at work and the weeks seem to be passing as if they were days, I took the photo at night so the colours havn't quite come out right, it is much more purple than it appears, but at least I got it done in time, I'm waffling now, so,
 the challenge this week at The Paper Shelter is Pearls and Swirls.
We are also having a DT call so if your interested give it a go, you have to be in it to win it.

I have used Gothic and Modern isn't she adorable, I coloured her with copics, used first edition paper, purple Bazill Basics, Nestie, Tim Holtz Swirl die, Memory box flower die, white and lilac pearls.
