Tri-Fold card!!!

I saw a Tri-fold on SplitCoast Stampers.com and loved it but was worried it would be a real faff!
However thanks to a great tutorial HEREthe card was made in no time at all!!
It's so funky!!

So then out came the decorating bit!!
Out came my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird which is so retro and cool- I LURVE it!!!
I used my Retro Cowgirls which I stamped onto Cosmo Cricket paper to give them patterned clothes!

Bombshell time!!

So it's June and I'm Miss June for Bombshell Stamps Woo-Hoo!!!
This is one of those £2 Ikea mirrors BOMBSHELLED!!!

First of all I covered the mirror with torn pages from an old book.
I used a wet glue to stick the pages on as they were quite furry!
I daubed on Purple and lilac Distress Inks.
The moisture from the glue made the inks run and spread into each other giving a nice soft effect.
When dry I used a black ink pad to stamp the Moth and Cherry Blossom all over the frame.
I cutout 'BOMBSHELL' using QuicKutz Eliza font and glittered it with Distress glitter for a vintage look.
I added Prima flowers, Crystal swirls and lace to the mirror.
Finally I stamped, coloured and cut out my bombshells and attached them to my mirror, pride of place!

Beautiful Girl!!!

It's amazing that with just a hairbrush and a gallon of de-tangler spray the feral child or Miss Acorn could be teased and tamed and transform into this beauty!!
Thanks to the ladies on ebay who's stores provided the lovely outfit I bless you for always!!!
