I won! I won!

Woohoo! I won the retailer blog hop over on Tando Creative! Earlier this week I received a box crammed full of all these fabulous goodies: (for some reason Mr Blogger wants to display the pic sideways)

Among all thee fabulous goodies was a 4 horse carousel.  I love carousels so that was the first thing I played with:
Loads of Fresco Finish paints, gold paint dabber, die cut flourishes and gems later, I used edge punches to make a card trim for the top and bottom and used mica flakes all over the roof.  Here's a look at the opposite side:
This was so much fun to do and went together so easily, I can't wait to play with some more of my prize, and with the Pebeo Fantasy Moon paints.

Thanks for looking.

International Card Making Day...

...is today. Over on the Paperartsy blog Leandra has a competition to celebrate. I don't really do cards, but I thought I would have a go, especially with the chance to win Paperartsy stamps up for grabs!

I painted the front of a card blank with my favourite combo (claret fresco finish, crackle medium then nougat fresco finish) then embossed a music script stamp with gold. I went round the edge with my new love, frantage aged teal embossing powder. The Paperartsy bauble and word were stamped onto grunge paper that had been painted with pea coat and Hyde park fresco finish mixed to match the teal in the frantage. I embossed those with white detail powder, cut them out and edged them all with a gold paint dabber. A bit of gold ribbon tied around the top of the baubles and I was done.

Thanks for looking.
