A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Scribble & Scrap Challenge #5

Good Morning Crafty World!  

Today is the start of Challenge 5 over at  the Scribble & Scrap Challenge and, as always, it's

The winner of the challenge will receive a fabulous £15 voucher to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Shop, however, should the winner have used a Scribble & Scrap image, the voucher will be raised to an even more fabulous £20.  To be in with a chance of winning this fab prize,  please check out the RULES to make sure you don't miss out!

My creation this week is, erm ..... not too sure what I'd call it to be honest!  It's kind of a picture inside a picture type box thingamajig!! LOL!  I have used one of the stunning images from Vintage Girls Topper Sheet 2, which is all ready to print in sepia (although you can change the colour/tone should you wish).

I cut out & scored four pieces of card and fitted them together to make a 4" x 4" frame, which I then painted & popped some Gesso on.  I laid the 'frame' on top of some 6" x 6" Maja Design paper then die-cut another piece of 6" x 6" paper to fix on top of the frame, which I inked & distressed.  The edges of the paper, therefore, overhang by approx half an inch on each outer side.  I frantaged the little wooden frame in the centre and framed the gorgeous little girl in the image.

     A little close up of this beautiful image - she's one of six digital images on a sheet, so I have plenty more to play with too :)

Other materials used are:
Mulberry Roses, Pearl Flourish, Pearl Brad, Pearl String from the Hobby House
Maja Design Paper, Gesso, Twine, Pins, Vintage Berries from Live & Love Crafts
Ribbon from stash
