ABC Challenge 'N' for NEW

We had some lovely entries for the Masking Challenge last week :-) I do love that technique ,, so much easier than cutting out images to place them in front eh ! :-)

This week we would like to see what NEW goodies you have in your stash :-)

We are being sponsored by Lauretta's Digital Stamps and she gave all the DT a choice of images to use :-) I chose this gorgeous vase of flowers ,, isn't it beautiful ! :-) My neighbour asked me to make a card for her Mum's 70th Birthday, I thought this image would be perfect ! :-) So my 'New' things are the stamp and the papers :-)

You can also combine this challenge with the new ABC Tutorial Challenge whose theme is Cracked Glass :-)

I coloured the image wth copics and added crackle glaze to the vase :-) I do love this stuff on pottery:-) The papers are a digi download too from Digiscraps 3
The sentiment was printed on my comp and mounted onto a Spellbinders tag :-) I used my lovely Martha Stewart border too :-) All the edges were distressed with Dusty Concorde :-) I can't wait for all the new ones to arrive in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,, they should be there soon ,,,,, have you pre ordered yet ??? :-)

Here's a close up so you can see the finer details ha ha :-)

I will be starting a new blog candy today sponsoerd by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you are interested in entering see the details at the top of my blog :-)

I made my card using my new Noble Tilda and Elegant Roses Stamps these are available to pre order in the Simon Says Stamp Store and are expected any day now :-)

I masked Tilda to make her sit on the roses ,, hope there're no thorns !! :-) The papers are Basic Grey from the Wassail paper pad :-) I used my lovely Martha Stewart heart border punch and some roses which I sprayed using my fab Copics air gun ,, FUN !! I love it !! :-)

I made the frame using my Nellie Snellen Multi Frame ,, these are expected any day now in the Simon Says Stamp Store :-) I added loads of stickles and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops for sparkle :-)

I also thought I would ink up this little Edwin and pop him on the inside of the easel card :-) Isn't he cute :-) I thought I would make him look as if he was in a cameo brooch , am now thinking that maybe I should have used some diamond glaze over it ?? hmm ??

The DT have made some wonderful creations for you to see :-) Pop over to the Challenge blog to see them and please don't forget to leave the DT a ice comment and welcome our new teamies :-)
