Week 260 Recipe

 Hi LIMettes we have a fun challenge this week.

Our Recipe is for  you to include a 
in your creations.

Remember those Clean and Simple Rules... if you are at all uncertain,
do take a peek at the Guidelines at the top of the page!

This week Anne is taking a well earned week off to celebrate her birthday which to
be honest she keeps very close to her chest but we're sure she'd love your best wishes!
EDIT: Anne has decided to 'join the silhouette party' after all!
Please check out her adorable card below:

Here are the Design Team's creations and as ever we would like to encourage you to
visit their individual blogs, where there are nearly always additional cards to
inspire you ... plus they appreciate a friendly comment too!

Here is a stamp from Rubber Stampede, which has been in my stash for quite some time,
matched with a sentiment from Lili of the Valley. I used the same MFT pierced square
 to cut both mounts, shortening the upper one to fit, so that the widths of each of the
panels are exactly the same. It's odd how I like a sense of order on my cards
whereas my craft room is usually in a state of total chaos!


This one uses a stamp by Inkylicious called Toadstool Fairy plus
a sentiment from Clearly Besotted: Say it in Style. Having placed a circle of 
masking paper onto a panel of watercolour card I've inked and blended
various blue distress inks, whilst trying to keep the top left slightly in shadow. 
Once I removed the mask I smeared a little ink over the 'moon' and flicked 
some water onto the 'sky' to create a 'starry' effect. To finish some sparkly sequins
 from Pretty Pink Posh - just because I can't resist a bit of fairy sparkle!


I used a circular mask and blended the sun with Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral.  I then stamped the bird 
and branch silhouette, from Christmas Scenery 2 by Card-io in black ink. 
 Next I embossed the sentiment, from April Showers by Clearly Besotted, 
in white onto a strip of black cardstock, adhered this and then 
added some smooth clear gems to finish.


 Dogs are a Silhouette design store file, computer generated sentiment (cookiesandcream font) and some Xcut diecut hearts with Glossy Accents added.

We hope you have some fun with this one we can't wait to see
how you interpret the challenge this week.
