Thank you Card share!

Hi everyone today i want to share a card i made a few weeks back. I used a basic grey paper pad by the name of true love which I purchased on http://cardznscrapz.com for my birthday during the summer. The card measures 5.5 inch x5.5inch. For the main image on the card i used a paper pieced and copic coloured image from docrafts that came free in a past issue of their magazine.

To layer the image i used kraft cardstock and pattern paper from the paper pad. I added some wild orchid crafts flowers and lace to the card with a row of bling to layer the lace. I punched out some some butterflies from the martha stewart punch and added bling to it 

Hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by 
Have a nice day!

Altered clock

Hi everyone today i want to share an altered clock i did using a clock from ikea.

It was originaly black and i painted it using a brown metal finish then ripped some papers from bo bunnys collection "weekend market". This clock was super fun to distress and paint and give a grungy feel.

For the inside i took out all the click wires and pieces (it was broken thats why i altered it) then i cover the inside back with a paper also from the collection.for this project i wanted to make my own embelishments so i make a little book out of old book paper. I wrapped a piece of lace around a metal thread spool and glued that down with glossy accents then what i did to symbleize the love banner i die cut a heart from a sizzix die using a piece of wire and paper and glued them together and adde a wild orchid crafts flower that i broke down and put a pearl in the centre. Anyway hope you all enjoy and have a great weekend thanks for stopping by.

Lastly i added some martha steward butterflies using a punch i had and added bling to them and i also added some flowers i had in my stash to the top square. Hope you like thanks for stopping by
