Black, White, Silver & Red

Phew I am quick of the mark for this weeks JFF challenge  LOL. It is the last week of the theme that began as "White on White" and we have progressed to, black then silver and now we have a choice of  adding 1 other colour the DT chose Red, Yellow or Lavender. I have gone with Red which is the choice of Neet and Sam. I think the months theme has worked very well. I have gone contemporary this week and chose a small tando piece painted it black added some small white rubons, painted a small piece of corrugated card  silver and used some red metallic card to make a swirl (its actually part of a swirl) lastly I found a diddly black butterfly and popped him on.  Thanks for looking and the lovely comments on my previous posts they really are appreciated. Hugs XX PS Nice months challenge JFF DT.

TIO #92 Childsplay

I thought I would join in with the DragonsDream Tag It On challenge this week so here is my entry. I used DI on the background with Scatteretd straw, worn lipstick, forest green and bundled sage. Stamped a pale background of flora. Then added the little girl on a swing. I used to love swinging as a child and used to think if I went very high I was flying, my hope is the background makes her look like she is flying. Thanks for looking. Hugs Sandra XX

Black, White & Silver

Here is my challenge piece for this weeks JFF ongoing colour theme, this week Black, White and Silver chosen by Sam and we have a  guest designer Janet (excellent that Janet is guest designer I have recently got to know Janet and her work is really fab she is very talented and a very nice lady)

I did a tag tittled "Fantasy" well when did you ever see black and white butterflies except in dream's LOL. I covered the tag in DI black soot then stamped on it with a silver acrylic paint dabber, cut out my butterflies in black and white card with a little sizzix die from stampin up (it emboss at the same time). The butterflies were painted with a glitter glaze and with the addition of some black glitter swirls and letters it was done. I got carried away and also did a little notebook. I covered in a pretty piece of black and silver paper at the bottom and the top I painted in a shimmer paint. The central piece is corrugated package painted in silver metallic paint and a stamped out frame the piece is painted with glue and shine sealer and added more of the butterflies. Thanks for stopping by and looking. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs Sandra XX

Black & White

Over at JFF this week the colour theme of the month continues this time it is "Black & White". Mmmm nice one I thought but actually it took me a couple of days to decide what to do. Maybe it was because we are in the middle of decorating, I am chief tea and sustenance maker a role I took very seriously LOL. For the challenge I made a small canvas called "Masquerade". I love my judi masks stamp set and I thought this mask was perfect for a Black and White theme. I painted the canvas with acrylic and once dry stamped the diamond shapes onto it. I stamped the mask onto black card with brilliance white ink, I then covered it in glossy accents. After adding some embellishments and sticky swirls it was done. I enjoyed this one  XX. Oh well back to tea and sustenance for the Diamond. Thanks for looking Hugs All XX

White on White

Over at JFF it is a new month and a new set of challenges Sam has chosen the theme of "White on White" I must say the DT have produced some amazing work for this theme. White looks so clean and crisp. Anyway after some scratching of the head I settled on a chip board bird and cage, I painted it all in white acrylic paint. Then I painted over with a pearl dabber for a white metallic look on the cage. The bird I painted over in a shimmer paint and added some sticky swirls and a pearl eye. I made the paper rose out of fairly thick white paper. Over the whole lot I painted glue and seal assembled and dabbed about some frosted lace stickles and finished off with lace and white roses. Have a great weekend whatever you do Hugs Sandra XX
