Hello lovely ladies and welcome to a brand new challenge at ATCAS. The boss woman Smiley Kylie is your hostess for the next two weeks and what has our fabulous and fun leader chosen to inspire us all……..
Leave it to our Kylie to choose something bang on trend !
I was quite excited when I saw this code word mainly because having my darling Cameo enables me to make stencils from just about any design or material. That was the easy part but actually choosing one was more difficult and I ended up being really boring and choosing a heart. That’s not to say I didn’t go through a tonne of stencils, embossing paste and Dylusions . It seems like the old mojo is still on vacation, never mind though I had fun trying and that’s what really counts isn’t it !
Sorry about the bad photo its been a glorious week here in Greece until I wanted to take my photo of course.
I spray painted a piece of card stock in gold and made a stencil with my Cameo, I used shiny embossing paste and when dry added a touch of gold leaf hither and thither , what a BIG MISTAKE ! that stuff gets everywhere ! I’m enjoying gold leafing at the moment as it’s really quick and very effective, apart from the cleaning up that is ! A few sequins added willy nilly and topped off with a frame made by madame Cameo.
We would love for you to join us at ATCAS the DT have created some amazing cards for your perusal and we have a brand new guest designer the amazing Hannelie from Desert Diva, I do hope you will all join in and welcome this super talented lady.
We also once again sponsored by Stamp Art Design who are offering five free digis !
Wishing you all a super weekend and sending extra big hugs to Kylie as I know she’s had a pretty tough week
Ta ra for now
How can hearts be boring!!! I love the gold on this and the selected areas of sequins, the paste is a lot of fun and it does look fab x
Hi Sweetie…….don’t know why you think your mojo is on holiday! Looks like it’s working pretty well with this lovely creation. Love that you added the gold leaf…….I just try not to breathe when I use mine!!! lol Those sequins really finishes this gorgeous card off.
you have gold leaf on one of your eyebrows… just kidding. That stuff gets everywhere, hey? I love what you have done here. I am going to pinch this idea and use some stencils and gold leaf and see how it goes. I really like the end result. Thanks for the extra hugs – I needed them xx
How clever of your to stray paint the cardstock!! I’m simply amazed by that. lol I love your so called boring heart. It is fun and whimsical! The gold leafing looks great but I know how messy it is too. Love the frame and sequins too. Your take on the challenge is just fabulous. Hugs, Brenda
I love the huge heart with touch of gold 🙂 I have to try this gold leafing thing 🙂
Stunning and so romantic, hearts realy share the love.
Love that you framed this — awesome heart!
I want your mojo as it is! it’s 100% better than mine in full working order!!!!!
I love this frame and it’s beautiful heart.
Hope your leg is OK.
Really gorgeous card, Marie! I love your heart and how you used black and white with your gold leafing…WOW! Such a stunning effect! I think your mojo is doing just fine!
Beautiful heart Marie. Love the texture and dimension from the raised embossing paste dots. Love the hither and thither and the willy nilly additions 🙂 Loll xx
Gorgeous heart Marie – how could you possibly think it was boring! Love the texture and the touch of gold. Your mojo is definitely working!
Big hugs – Sylvia xxx
Seriously, you don’t need Monsieur Mojo, Marie … this is perfect without him! All the hither and thithering with the gold leaf and those willy nilly sequins add the most gorgeous drama to what is already a beautiful texture-y heart … lovely! Anita 🙂
Love your embossed heart Marie and all your hither and thither and willy nilly embellishments! Another creation for an up market home decor boutique:)
This is beautiful Marie…. love the touches of gold and black x
There’s nothing willy nilly about this Mrs, the gold and black are perfectly balanced! Hope you’re feeling a bit better, you’re sounding a bit cheerier! Take care. Hugs xx
Very Clever. Beautiful heart. Excellent! – Jim
I just love this. I think I would go crazy if I had an electronic die cutting machine – so. many. possibilities. This was a fabulous idea.
Marie, you never cease to amaize me, you always manage to come up with something totally different and stunning to boot. Gorgeous creation.
Hope things are improving for you.
Marie, I think your Mojo is absolutely on track! This card is gorgeous. I love the colors, the texture and the little touch of bling with the sequins. A really striking card.
