Lucky 7

Hello everyone,

I'm back to work today after my week off - it seemed to pass by very quickly! It was a tough one in some ways, but also a chance to remember Mum too.

I also had a fabulous evening on Saturday watching Mr Olly Murs at our local arena - he was fantastic, a very enjoyable night.

So, I have my next DT project today for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week it was my turn to choose the theme. We would love to see your projects showcasing


This could be for any occasion, but here's what I made with a new Tim Holtz stencil ...

I decided on a tag this time - starting with a piece of white card. I used a couple of distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed to give some colour to the background, then used the Peacock Feathers through the Tim Holtz 'Numbers' stencil to give some dimension.

I coloured a smaller piece with the same colours then used a crackle stamp all the way around the edges of the tag and the focal piece. I added a die-cut number '7' in black cardstock and stamped the work 'Lucky' as this has always seemed to be a lucky number for me personally.

A few die-cut cogs to finish off, along with a couple of black adhesive pearls and a piece of black satin ribbon. Then the whole thing is mounted on a layer of black to frame it.

Hope you can join us.
Hugz, Jan xx
