Hi there everyone!

It is Tuesday and my turn on the blog today.

For my card today I am using something a little bit different ……… coffee filters!

That’s correct ….. coffee filters … who knew they could come in handy for crafting,  they give such a lovely texture, plus they are so versatile, this is a little 5 x 5 tri fold window card.

I used cottage garden acrylic paints for my project today, I made up some custom colours in spray bottles to use and I love the colours.

I took 3 bottles and used banana custard as the base colour, and by adding a spot of black gesso to one bottle, a spot of rich cocoa to another and finally a spot of park lane to the 3rd bottle it gave me some gorgeous green tones of spray paint which compliment the gin and tonic megaflakes perfectly.

  4. Re the CHOCOLATE BOX in September
    I’ve only just found the ‘CHOCOLATE BOX’ Wow! What can I say except outstanding, wonderful, incredible, gorgeous, & totally ‘lush’ as my grandchildren would say…. How did you come up with this? I’d love to spend an hour inside your brain when thinking up a new idea to show us LOL!
    Is there a video & how do I find it? Thanks again Sarah. Dawn
