Fun with Artisan style

Good Morning to all my lovely blog friends, hope you all had a great weekend getting creative. Today I have decided to have a day to myself catching up with DT projects and generally having a good old play with my crafty stash. I'm even doing some cooking later and off with the hubby to see my crafty buddy Maria. Her son James is a Star Wars fan and hubby is off to help him build his millennium falcon..... Boys and their toys lol.
Anyway enough of that,  So what have I created then.....
A new home card using Graphic 45 Artisan style for Jones crafts. Such a gorgeous collection.




I used spellbinders distressed edges Die  to create my card base. Then embossed it using my brick folder and rubbed Versa magic Aloe Vera and distress ink peeled paint to show the bricks in a bit more detail, I then Cut out the house twice to give height and added flowers and a lock. Really love the colours of this one. 
Please to pop over to Jones craft on Facebook , give them a like and see what the other design team members have created. 
Right back to my desk now, have a fab day and thanks so much for stopping by today. 
Hugs Elaine

  5. Wow! AH-mazing texture here. I have to agree that this collection is fab-o and I love what you've done with it. As for your hubby, helping young nerds succeed is an important thing to do with your life. I am a HUGE Star Wars geek and heartily approve his activities.

  13. Wow Wow Wow Elaine this is gorgeous. It looks like you are a fan of Geaphic 45. I found out a few days ago they were having a DT call. I was bummed I didn't discover soon enough to submit some creations. The brick is awesome and so is your blog. I will be back Elaine.
