Daisy chain

Morning, well weathers bighter today, think when hubby gets home later I will get him to take me up to the horse and take him for a ride. Couldn't sleep again last night grrr, so I thought I would make a card. Finally went to bed around 2 am and lay awake till hubby got up for work at 5am.
so here is the card I made.
I pulled out the distress inks and another water based ink I had for the grass as I don't have a green in the distress inks yet. Grabbed  the watercolour paper and thought I would give that style
a try. Only the 2nd time I have tried this. 1st time I used the smooth card it didn't work. The card all bubbled up with the water. So it just shows you have to use the correct paper for the job.
I really pleased how it turned out. Think you are going to see
many more cards coloured inks on watercolour paper.

Papers : prima botanics (love theses paper think I will have to pay a visit to the paperlane for some more soon), papermania Regency(using up my scraps)
and  some printer paper also watercolour paper
Inks: Scatted straw, aged mahogany, chipped Sapphire used a little of vintage photo,
and old paper on socks the green was stampin up .... old olive
( just had to dash upstairs again to cheek oh well will keep me fit) 
 blue around girl is stampin up bashful blue ( very watered down)
Daisy's have glamor dust on them but its not showing up in picture
crochet lace trim, flat backed sticky pearls and some flowers  punched some out from scraps of watercolour paper added pearl and few dots of copic markers.
oh nearly forgot the die used was Tim holtz clock
also Martha Stewart punch used was eyelet lace.

think that's everything.
D'oh .... forgot the Lilli of the valley daisy chain
its one of the new ones released last week.
 Well enjoy the sun while its here.

Wow Craft stamper

My little den of delight is my local craft shop the paper lane Well Caz who owns the shop, shes lovley the shops so friendly and welcoming,  asked me would I be on there design team.  I was shocked  tho that she asked me as I don't think my work is up to the standard of many other talented and gifted crafters.  So  my 1st request from Caz was to  a piece to send into Craft  stampers magazine for there gallery page. I  had 2 days to meet the posting dead line, and the challenge was postcard, aqua and tangerine. So I went home and started putting my postcard together. Caz posted it off to craft stamper. I didnt think my work would ever make the magazine. But it did, I still cant believe it.
(Thank you Caz for having faith in me and giving me the oppertunity to be on the design team, im sure you know it means a lot to me. )

and here is my postcard that was in above copy of the magazine.
Ingredients :Kaisercraft paper pad peachy keen
                    Distress inks vintage photo,  old paper
                    Tim Holtz on the edge scroll die
                    Rubber stamps Tim Holtz urban grunge set / script stamp
                    and  Lilli of the valley  sailing boat stamp
                    A selection of copic ciao markers
                    Sticky backed pearls

    Mix together well with alittle bit of love and attenchion.


Thank you for dropping in to my little crafting place. Let me start by introducing my self and a little about me . I'm Klare, yes spelt with a 'K' its a little bit different  but like it that way. I have been crafting for a lot of years now  I would think about 6 years plus. So what do I like to do, well I like card making , have tried my hand at a few things tho from jewellery making , fimo models, embroidery, sewing, and many more things. I like to learn new skills. The style of cards I like to make are are a range of shabby chic, vintage. so its a must to have buttons lace glitter and peals and all that sparkles. Well  that's enough about me for now lets get on to showing you some of the things I make. So thank you for dropping by and hope you like some of the things that make.
