Bubbly Funk crafty calendar

Some of the girls over on Bubbly Funk put together an online crafty calendar with a new project each month.
January's project was for a clock made from an old Cd. I adapted this slightly from the theme of 'Time flies' to fit in with the items in my stash.

This is what I started with and with the help of the online tutorial transformed it into something quite different.

I covered the Cd with Antiquity Tan Parchment paper by K & Co and then added colours from the Aurora set of Brilliance inks using finger daubers. The dragonfly stamp was a magazine freebie, so long ago I don't remember which one, and was stamped using the Peacock set of Brilliance inks. The flowers are Primas with the addition of small sparkly brads.

The original clock was bought very cheaply a couple of years ago from Ikea. I simply took it out of it's casing and re-assembled it onto the Cd.

Why not nip over to Bubbly Funk and check out the rest of the calendar, there's sure to be something to catch your imagination.

Cute Card Thursday.

On Cute Card Thursday challenge we were told.....

We would love to see your creations with a music or dance theme this week. Think instruments, song titles, dancing, musical notes etc.

Well this is what I came up with. The image is from Paper Nation and has been inked with Versafine Grey and painted with shimmery watercolours and water colour crayons.

The image has been layered onto paper from HOTP citrus pad with corners decorated with a X Cut punch. This has been layered onto lilac cardstock which has a piece of organza ribbon attached. The whole topper has been put onto a pre-embossed card from DCWV
