GDT For Art By Miran!!

Hello everyone, it’s me again.

(My blog is busy this week. Smiles.)


Today I am very, very proud to be a Guest DT for February’s Anything Goes/Twist Monochrome challenge at Art By Miran.

I chose to play with Gentleman George from Art By Miran – Etsy.


To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-







Dark Gold

Dark Gold.

Pale Gold

Pale Gold.


I decided that a real vintage feel would suit this awesome image perfectly. So I delved in to my February Craft Box, and set to work.

The “design paper” is actually a vintage envelope, which I cut and then inked with my Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink.  I used this ink to shade around my image too.


My fabulous brass cogs are real working watch parts, which I received in the most fabulous little tin in my Craft Box this month. They are all so awesome!


The image I framed using my By DIEZyne Stitched Rectangles Dies which I originally got from Dies To Die For.

I layered everything onto a cream card base. For this I used cream hammer card @ 300gsm thickness.


The Happy Birthday is hand written, and inked also with my TH Wild Honey Distress ink.

I added another tiny cog piece to the punched hole. The “tag” I cut from a scrap piece of Kraft card.


I hope that you can stop by the blog and join in with the Art By Miran team for their Anything Goes with a twist of Monochrome this month.

I had so much playing along with this one and I know that you will too!

Thank you so much for my GDT this month guys! I really loved it! Smiles.

Anything Goes At Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

Hello again everyone! And a very happy Thursday to you all!

(If you are looking for the Thrifty Thursday post then just click here.)

Today I am bringing you another boy’s card.  I had so much fun with this one! Smiles.


The image I have used is called Super Star Cupcake (from Little Miss Muffet Stamps) and I have been wanting to create a card with this one for the longest time now.


I gave it great texture with my Gold Perfect Pearls pen. I just love how it has dried!


That fabulous sentiment is also available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

To bring the cupcake image to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

Cupcake Case

Cupcake Case.

Sky Scrapers

Cream Icing

My design paper is Carta Bella Boardwalk.  And my blue layer card is Core-Dinations.


My bakers twine is from my craft shelf, and the base card is 300gsm White Pearlescent card, which I cut to size.
