sweet daisy...

Poor daisy has been sitting neglected so so long thought it about time she saw ink again !! she is my fave ever sugar nellie i love these old ones by elisabeth bell such a shame she doesnt design for them anymore . I wanted a soft dreamy look for this one so kept the colours pale ,i painted the edges of the papers with white paint and a bit of tims crackle paint to soften it as well and added my new favourite thing ...cheesecloth !!

Tilda mini world

Of course i couldnt resist these gorgeous little uns when mini world was released this week !! I was having a delve into one of my many stamp boxes to see what i could use with them and this fab alota house jumped out at me isnt it perfect for mini world those steps are just the right size to sit on !!
now i know i love my masking but i have to say this took ages to get them all in the right place as the house is so big you cant see much at to guide you where to stamp it and cutting the tiny little masks was just a little fiddly !! still its done now !! i have coloured with distress inks and used some scrummy papers from stampin up (thanks so much jules i love them !!)
