Add A Little Dazzle Dazzling Divas Challenge #44 & Believe in Better!

Good afternoon! Hope you’re all ok. challenge44It’s Wednesday, which means Diva Challenge. We were challenged to use a combination of the following metal sheet colours

Brushed Bronze
Brushed Copper
Outrageously Orange
Gold
Chocolate

Me? I used them all!fox2I’ve used the ‘Joy to the Woods’ set by Lawn Fawn, and the Forest Border die too. The metal is so pliable, you are able to add dimension and texture. If you look closely, you can see I ‘ve pushed the foxes body forward from the back and added fur lines with a tool also available from Add a Little Dazzle. To stop the metal from pushing back in, I’ve simply added a little embossing paste to the convex part (on the rear)fox

I used the heart die from the ‘Hello Baby’ die set from Lawn Fawn. I wanted there to be heart leaves!

Isn’t that Outrageously Orange gorgeous (and a fun name to boot!)

outrageously orange1

Do join in, I’m so impressed with the metal- it’s really opened up a whole new way of crafting. You don’t have to use metal craft sheets to enter- but its worth having a go as if you win, you get $15 voucher for the Boutique so you buy your own set of metal sheets and get creating. Add your project to the link here and good luck!

I’m presently trying to believe in better.

That’s the strapline for Sky, who have recently taken on our phone line. I do believe in better..and it’s certainly not with Sky 😉

And lost it.

We have no connection and no internet.

I’m struggling to work. I’m only able to do anything because of a wonderful piece of technology called the personal Hotspot which enables me to link my computer to my phone network. Isn’t technology amazing ?(when it actually works and doesn’t get cut off by an engineer not correctly installing the connection!!).

I have a somewhat funny conversation to relay to you about Sky.. but I think I’ll save that for tomorrow!

See you when I’ve used up my entire internet allowance for the month in one day. Thanks, Sky! xx

    Ouch! I detest internet problems with a purple passion (one of my favorite colours). Despite them, that card is fabulous. The metal adds so much to your design. WOW!

    Love the texture on the fox, it’s so dimensional and I love all the little metallic hearts/leaves!
