Mid Month Inspirational Post for Imagination Crafts - September Challenge - Anything Goes

Morning all, hope that you are all well, this will be a short post from, me, as I am suffering from a Chest Infection, that has thrown me for 6....so without further ado..

Here is my project for September's Mid Month Inspirational Post - Anything Goes at Imagination Crafts.

MDF - Back and Star Charm - Dove
MDF - Paint - Jet
Stencil - The Clearing
Sparkle Medium - Hunter Green, and Gold Shine
Gilding Flakes (used on Star Charm) - Frosty Morning

I love this stencil, and used the Burnishing Method, with the Sparkle Medium, as it so happens, I am in the middle of doing a step by step, using this method, which I will share with you all next week, so I hope you pop back then, and see another way of using Sparkle Medium...I now have my daughter's saying make me one of these, please, please, LOL...

I hope you like my project, and if you are looking for more inspiration from our ubber talented DT, pop over HERE.

I have not been able to complete my DT projects for Whoopsi Daisy and Ooh La La Creations, which should have been blogged this morning, and if Linda had not been on holiday, and need the projects down before she went, it would be doubtful if this project would have been completed..however, if you are looking for the current challenges for:-

Fancy Folds CH#163 at Ooh La La Creations

Well my lovelies, back as promised with my DT card for Ooh La La Creations, CH#163 - Fancy Folds.
I really do struggle with these themes, so stuck with my faithful Easel Card.  I chose to make probably my last Summer Card of the year, mainly because Sinead, was at the beach and picked me up some shells, which I duly washed, and used.

Using Faithful Friends CD
How cute is this image, I used the Shells that Sinead picked up, at the Beach.
 I Diecut the Umbrella, Bucket and Spade, with left over paper
I also Diecut the Sandcastle using Sandpaper also
 added bits of cut Sandpaper to the bucket and spade.

CD - Available HERE
the Art work is stunning.

So with this post I am saying goodbye to Summer Creations and so looking forward to Autumnal ones, as these are my very favourite.  Hope you like my card and you will join us this fortnight.

The Winner and Top 3 from our Scenic challenge can be found, HERE, thank you to all who entered and congratulations to the Winners.
