Art Alchemy paints, Artful Days Goodie Box, Paperartsy, Eclectica -Darcy

Paperartsy challenge orange and pink… valentines card… shhhh… don’t tell him!¬†

Yes I made my valentines for my lovely hubby and am sharing it before I give it to him because it meets the criteria for the Paperartsy challenge…. pink and orange! 

I also used plenty of goodies from the Steampunk Artful Days goodie box from a few months ago … because yes I still have stuff in the box because there really is heaps of stuff in the box! 

So… industrial patterned paper, wooden cogs, pink gems all from Artful Days goodie box …. heart stickers and pink and orange cardstock from the stash pile and then the steampunk Darcy heart stamped onto some hot pink metallic paint from Finnabair. The sentiment from the Tim Holtz stickers.

Love it, Love him, just don’t tell him yet! 

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge 

Wow didn’t January just fly by? I was caught on the hop and only just got this card finished last night for the challenge over at Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog… where the only rule is to use patterned paper. Well I certainly did that! 

I had a delve in the box and came up with three pieces that went together reasonably well … all from different sources.  I then went for a delicate look to the card I made with white stamping and doodling. 

Hope you like it. 

Now pop over to the blog to check out how everyone else got on this month.

Happy crafting!
