Chasing Rainbows Blog Hop & a Birthday Month Giveaway!

We’re chasing Rainbows this July and the blog hop starts on 10 July 2017 and will close on 20 July 2017. That’s TEN full days of catching rainbows across our blogs!

After a long mojo-searching period, I've chosen a CAS styled card for my Rainbow.


I doused my watercolour paper, using the brush, then picked up each colour of my rainbow-hued Distress Inks.


 I was going for a more pastelised version of the rainbow.



The Great Impressions birds and unknown sentiment stamp were inked with Versafine Black Onyx and heat set with clear embossing powder.


I'm celebrating my "birthday-month" so time to share the prezzies. Leave a comment and I'll draw a winner on the 20th July.

Each blogger has designed and showcased their card, along with a quick tutorial on the making of their masterpiece. Some blogs will offer a surprise crafty gift too! This blog hop is going to be full of surprises and oh so much fun!

Here are the July 2017 participants:


    


Where have I been?

Moved home and business - changing my focus of what I want to do with my crafty life - learning a new skill - and getting to love making cards once again...

Happy Birthday to me!



Yes, it's that time of the year - and I'm celebrating a big one! And I'm celebrating this day with Nelson Mandela & Richard Branson.  Exalted company I know...

I've been away a long time, I know.  There has been a lot of L.I.F.E. happening and I have had to concentrate on other area's of life to bring it back down to small letters.

Thank you for hanging around, and I'll be posting some creations in the next few weeks.

In the meantime feel free to sing Happy Birthday at any time of the day to me or anyone in general.  Make their day feel fun and happy too!

Tiara's ON!

Love

Helen


    

A Trio of Hearts...

I recently attended a workshop at Itz van Allez, where I learnt the wonderful technique of Dry Brushing.

These gorgeous hearts were what I made at the workshop.


The demonstrator showed us how to use a number of textures to create words, shapes and images on our wooden blanks, and I've been having great fun making more of these to sell.

TFL!
