Week 220 - Use Your New Stash

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone in Crafter's Blog land has enjoyed a great week.  It has been a super busy one at Let's Create.  Everyone is loving the new shop and workshops have been great in our new workshop room.
It still feels that we are borrowing this gorgeous building and not that we are here to stay!!!
I hope that you all had a chance to have a peep at Sheena's blog about the opening day.
It is my week to host the Allsorts Challenge and I have chosen .........
Use Your New Stash
as my Challenge.
I was thinking about a title when I realised that this one is ideal for all Crafters alive!! we are always seeking out new crafty bits and pieces and I am sure you are one of them!!
My new purchases are Sheena's new Floral Fantasy sets and I have also had the pleasure of playing with some of the new Spellbinders so I thought I would combine the two to make my offering for the Challenge.
I have used the Daffodil set and really love the detail and the size of these images,  they work for card making and for altered art pieces.  I have coloured them with Mustard Seed Distress ink and highlighted the flowers with Peeled Paint.  I then used Luminarte Radiant Rain pourables to colour over the top to create a gorgeous glossy, mica effect (I used the Verdigris set)
I also coloured the largest of the Spellbinder mat with the Radiant Rain too.
We are away on holiday from Monday we are a very lucky family going to visit my Brother and his Family in Bermuda - we are all looking forward to it so much.
I hope to bring back some fabulous photographs when we get back - some great material for some scrapbooking I am thinking!!
I have just got today to get a whole list of jobs done so must dash now and get on.
I hope that you can have a bash at the Challenge.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to check out the other great designs from the Design Team Members. 
Enjoy your crafting week and hope to see you back soon,
Please leave a comment - I love to hear from you,
Bye for now
