Petal lu challenge

I’m excited to say I’m back on board with the wonderful Petal lu design team again after taking some time out from blogging.  And what a way to come back.  Petal lu are having a DT call out, so if you want to get to play with these beautiful handmade, exquisite flowers then join in our challenge and apply! 

Our challenge this month is “anything goes” ……. so you have no excuse! 

I have used the lovely ‘breeze’ digital image from Saturated Canary which has been sat on my memory stick forever!  It’s time she was set free.  I have coloured her up using the new Spectrum Noir illustrator pens.

Check out our main challenge blog for full details of the challenge, the DT call and to see some more incredible inspiration from the girls.

Our challenge for the 1st of May is once again, anything goes.  We are lucky to be sponsored by the very talented Conie Fung.  I chose to use ‘Lavenders Blue’ for my inspiration post.  Along with lace, ribbon, la la land and creative expressions dies, I have used a collection of different petal Lu flowers.   They are Teddy blooms, roses and the Spring collection.  All these can be found on the petal Lu shop site.  Check out our challenge blog for full details, links and more stunning inspiration from the DT.

Our challenge is being sponsored by That Craft Place with the chance of winning 3 digi images.  Today we are also launching the new Button box fairies.  Seriously these are some of the cutest stamps out there.  They are a dream to colour and when teamed with petal Lu flowers are just gorgeous.

So make sure you hop on over there to keep them company. 


So here we are, our final TCP challenge for the time being.  But fear not, I am going to Petal Lu, how could I not…… those flowers are stunning!

I have two cards to show you but first off I must apologise for the quality of the photos!  Guess who gave the cards away before taking proper photos!!

I have used two of the fabulous new images by our lovely talented Kelly who designed Sugar and Spice…….. this time we have Candy!



As you can see, I’ve made totally different cards using these images.  Check out what the other girls have done  with the images and Lisa’s  MDF.

lots of fab prizes to be won so get creating…… as usual our theme is anything goes.

Hope to  all over at Petal Lu for our next adventure!

It’s that time again!  Our anything goes challenge!

Today I have two makes.

First is using the great “Tool Box” from Creative Expressions.  I have painted it with the Americana chalk paint from Decoart.  I covered The long side with Papermania Bare Basics deco patch paper from Docrafts.  For the ends I cut up a pair of old jeans and used the patch pockets. All raw edges were covered using cosmic shimmer glue and denim jute, I then finished off with Parisian blue crochet ribbon and denim heart tags.


Secondly I have a quick Gorguss door hanger.  Once again the MDF blank is from Creative Expressions.  Everything else is A mixture of different Gorjuss ranges from Docrafts.
