Je ne sais quoi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good afternoon bloggers
As the weekend starts to wind down, I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I enjoyed mine.

Yesterday was my crafting day, clearing everything that I needed to get done for all my DT posts, later on yesterday and a little today I have been finishing another creation for display at Grimsby Crafts along with adding another layer of gesso to my little box.

Which reminds me Matt took me to the local department store today and I got some more delish bits for my future projects, popped into see a Polly (Artfulwings) and her partner on the way back, well could not wait to show her what was in my shopping bag.  Obviously there were lots of oooooh's and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh's and a bit of sharing before heading home oh and thank you Polly for picking that delish ribbon up for me, it is just perfect :)

Oh and that reminds me Our Vintage Affair has returned to us after it's break over the festive period, take a look at the changes here 

So here is the creation for Grimsby Crafts, I had made one earlier in the black tones but as the finished project was for a special birthday card, I have now replicated it in the brown tones, using some of the delish new papers in at Grimsby Crafts.  The papers are Making Memories and Core Essentials on this occasion.  The card measures 21cm x 21 cm and the circles are die cuts from the grand nesties.
The marabou feathers are from the local department store, just under the feathers along the hair line are some really tiny diamante in a warm browny/gold (you might not be able to see them)  The edges have all been distressed and edged with platinum stickles.  The image is coloured with copics, a white gel pen to highlight and a clear glitter sakuro pen for her dress lattice work and shoulder straps.  The edges of the image plate have been distressed with Tim Holtz old paper and over stamped in the same.

Here is a close up of the image which is by Kanban and is one of two images in the set available at Grimsby Crafts.  There are also some lovely sentiments along with the images.  I think the image really says it with style don't you ?? I'd love a frock like this :)
