Fusion mirror

I thought I would let you see the mirror I have 'renovated' by using Sheena's fusion stamps.  It was a horrible brown boring old mirror but I crackled it and painted some daisies on it - I think it's given it a new lease of life;

The paint fusion stamps and paints are available here I'm waiting for a delivery of the new fusion stamps which are the sunflower, tulips and pansies.  I have painted 3 little panels to show what they're like;

They'll be on the website soon.
I have some great Stampavie stamps on the site which I'm dying to have a play with so I'll post piccies when I've done that.

More paint fusion.

I thought you might like to see another of my paint fusion boxes. This time it is using the daisy stamps.

I crackled a paper mache box and then stamped the flowers and leaves and then set about painting them which actually didn't take me very long.  I then added the DAISY word and embossed it with WOW embossing powders .  I finally went around the edges and roughly over the box with some distress ink. 
The paint fusion stamps and paints etc are available in store here.

I hope you like this and it might inspire you to give this painting method a go.

Card for a teenager

Well it's a very long time since I was sixteen so I find it quite hard to do cards for teenagers. However, I was asked to do a 16th birthday card for a grandad to give to his granddaughter. I was really worried that what I came up with would disappoint so took ages trying to decide what to do. Anyway here is what I ended up with;

The stamp is from Bildmalarna's Little Winged Friends range, and is called you and me. It is available in the store  here..
The papers are Basic Grey - Cappella I think. I cut out her name on my Cricut along with the 16 on the front and inside the card, and distressed all the papers with Distress inks. The image itself is coloured with Aqua markers. The flowers and lace was from my stash.
I thought this was a nice card as not too babyish but representative of how a granddad always sees his granddaughter as a little girl.
I made a nice box for it to go in too.
Well I was still nervous about it but he was really pleased with it so I was chuffed with that in the end. I just hope Jessica liked it too ;o)
I hope you like it too.
