Week 263 - Allsorts Challenge - White, gold and one other colour.

Good Morning Crafters,

How are you all? What a gorgeous week for the sunshine - well, in Lincolnshire anyway!
I love the sun it makes everyone feel so happy and people smile and look so much more cheerful.
Mark and I had a great day at Inspirations in Preston last Saturday thankyou to everyone that came to watch my demonstration. We had a good chat and a laugh as usual and sneaked some crafting in in between!!
This week at Allsorts our lovely Helene is hosting and she has asked us to show you a project using the colours White, Gold and one other.  Well I have chosen pink as my additional colour and it rather dominates the canvas that you will see here ............

The gold is in the form of Treasure Gold wax which is my favourite crafting product at the moment. It is simply fabulous to use and creates amazing results with little effort.  The white is in the sentiments and the words and in the flower.  I have used a Special Touch mask to create the flowers and used paste through the mask.  This was dried and then coloured with the Treasure gold.  The butterfly has been moulded out of Paper clay from a Martha Stewart mould. The flower is a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die which is my absolute favourite flower die.
I hope that you like the design and that you can spare a few minutes to leave a comment for me.
We have a busy weekend coming up but for once it isn't for work!! It is our gorgeous Daughter Kate's 21st birthday and we are having a family get together to celebrate. I hope the weather stays fine as we are having a BBQ in Mark's Mum and Dad's garden!!
Please keep fingers and toes firmly crossed for us!!
Also before I go I am on Create and Craft on Friday (20th) at 1pm with some more stunning Hobby House products and you will never guess but it is Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know you read correctly!! It is the launch of Create and Crafts Christmas - I am sure it gets earlier each year!.
That really is all for now,
enjoy the weekend and week ahead,
keep well and pop in again.
Bye for now
Jo xx
