It is a Fussy and Fancy Friday....

Hi all, and welcome to another Fussy and Fancy Friday...
It is a new Challenge on the blog ....and the new theme is......
...............Chocolate.......(mmmmm) 
Now this time the Challenge is staying open for four weeks, so plenty of time for you to join in....and we have a sponsor....Fresh Brewed Designs......
and one lucky winner will get a special Candy Prize......3 digi images of their choice and a fun candy prize....
Here is my DT inspiration ...I do hope that you like it...


I used my Gelli plate to create the design ...I used two Adirondack inks on my Brayer side by side ....Latte and Espresso...and rolled them onto the Gelli plate...
I then placed the Clarity snowflake stencil and then on top of that the circle Aperture stencil...I used a piece of scrap paper and pressed them down...
I then took the paper and stencils away...and used a piece of white card to take a print ....
The beauty of using inks is that there is no rush...you have plenty of time to take a print...you can even use another piece of card and get a second print...slightly paler ..but still really cool...


The sentiment is a Clarity Stamp and I used a VersaFine ink...Vintage Sepia...
Some brown ribbon, card Candi, gems, Stickles glitter glue and metal embellishments and the card was complete...
If you haven't had a play with a Gelli plate....you really are missing out ...they are great fun and produce gorgeous prints...
The other DT members have produced some stunning examples...you can find the here at..... http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
I will leave you now ....I have a good shop to look forward too.....just before I go....yesterday, I thought it was a good idea to defrost the chest freezer...well it was all going to plan until I reached in to dry the bottom of the freezer and yes....you've guessed it ...little old me fell in.....it was like a scene from the Mrs Pepperpot books if anyone else remembers them....there I was, legs waving up in the air....oh I do get in some predicaments......Such Fun!!!
Have a good day....and call back soon...
Hugs....Jo. X

  2. yes as always, Jo such an elegant card, when I first saw it I was puzzled as to how you had created it I guessed the Gelli plate was involved but it is so delicate I was confused ... now you have revealed all!! so to speak ...will have to give it a go.. maybe with Bobbin' Robin xxx I'm afraid I did laugh out loud when you said you had fallen into your freezer :)
