A card... er, no... box...

Hi all! I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine wherever you are! Our challenge at Anya Ink is still running and it is to "add some bling". The DT have added other gorgeous creations which we hope you will find inspiring! I have chosen to do something a bit different, using my Greeting Farm image to make a box instead of a card...

Bonjour à tous! Un petit message pour vous dire que le challenge d'Anya Ink est dans sa 2e semaine (sortez tout ce qui brille, ajoutez du bling!) et que la DT a ajouté d'autres créations, qui, nous l'espérons, vous plairont! J'ai décidé de ne pas faire une carte, mais une petite boîte...

Here is the top of my box...

And here is the whole box,

Stamp: The Greeting Farm - Princess Anya
Copics: B00, B02, BG000, BV0000, BV00, BV02, Bv04, C1, C3, C5, C7, E000, E00, R20, Y21, Y26, Y28
Paper: Fancy Pants
Embellishments: flowers (from Quixotic Paperie), ribbon from stash, Star dust Stickles, glamour dust, distress inks (milled lavender and dusty concord)

That's all for now! Thank you very much for your visit and have a great weekend!
Merci de votre visite et bon week-end à tous! Bises,

Two awards to share

Hello all! I hope you are all fine and have had a great sunny day. I have received the following awards from the lovely Lorraine. Thank you so much for thinking of me, Lorraine, that is so kind of you!

It is really hard to give names I think, so I would like you my loyal followers to take these awards to thank you for your support, for never failing to leave me comments (and lovely ones!!) which I appreciate so much and for having accepted me in Blogland... Thank you also for sharing your wonderful creations that I always love discovering. I am really happy to have you as my blog buddies :-)!

Add some bling!

Hi all! I hope you had a great week... Today is Friday, which means it is time for a new challenge at Anya Ink and time for my first DT card, which I am very happy to share with you! Our challenge this week is "Add some bling" and we are sponsored by Bizzy Becs, there's a fabulous prize to win! The DT have made some gorgeous cards, so why not take a look, give them some love... and join us :-)?

Coucou! On est vendredi, c'est donc l'heure d'un nouveau challenge d'Anya Ink, et l'heure de ma première carte en tant que DT... J'espère que vous l'aimerez! Il y a un super prix à gagner offert par Bizzy Becs, et notre challenge est "d'ajouter du bling", sortez tout ce qui brille!

Oh, it is so difficult to take a picture of a card with lots of glitter... I have never taken so many just for one card :-)... I am too ashamed to tell you how many... and the result is so different from the card IRL!

And a close up...

Stamp: The Greeting Farm - Stella
Copics: E000, E00, E25, E31, E50, E51, E53, R20, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06
Copic Spica Glitter Pens (Sand, black, and clear for her dress and shoes)
DP: Doodlebug (cherry chocolate dot) + chocolate glitter card
Bling: Artwork (Love) and gems from stash
Ribbon: white coloured with RV04 Copic
Tools: punch (tiny circle), ink blending tool used with Rosebud ColorBox Ink, and beads for the flower

I made the "flower" in her hair, using the beads that I usually use to make rings, and the flower is just the beginning of the ring. I love glitter but thought it would be nice to add something else too.
J'ai fait la fleur avec des perles facettes et rocaille (c'est le début d'une bague fleur).

That's all for now! Have a great weekend and thank you very much for your visit!
C'est tout pour l'instant! Bon week-end et merci de votre visite! Bises, Delphine.

100% Distress Ink card

Hello again everyone! A card in this post... which shows my first attempt at colouring a whole image with distress inks...  Once my image was ready (I often start with the image and the colours I want to use, and then papers :-)), I thought I would use only distress inks on my card, to have a matching background... So, 100% Distress Ink!
This card is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge - Lilian's great sketch (+ theme: pink, black and white).

Coucou! Une petite carte 100% Encres Distress, ma première image coloriée de cette manière, pour le challenge du Sugar Bowl (sketch à suivre + rose, noir et blanc en option).

And a close up...

Stamp: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girls - Untamed
Distress Inks: Black Soot, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Punches used for the flowers: Flower, Daisy, Small Circle
Other: Cuttlebug folder (distressed stripes), ink blending tool, gems and pearls from my stash

That's all for tonight! Thank you very much for visiting!
Enjoy the rest of your evening and talk to you soon!
Bonne soirée et à très bientôt! Bises.

Exciting news to share...

Hi everyone! As some of you may know, I think I have something to share... The past few days have been amazing for me! It all started with the encouragement award that I won at the Anya Ink Challenge Blog, the blog for all lovers of the adorable Greeting Farm and CC Designs stamps. It made me SO happy and proud! And... in the middle of my excitement... I was asked if I wanted to join the Design Team... My heart almost stopped! And, YES!! I am so excited and so honoured to join such talented ladies and still find it hard to believe this is happening... The challenges are every other Friday and I really hope you will be able to join us!

Thank you all for reading these lines, and again thank you for your support and all your lovely comments. I am very happy I have told YOU and shared this with YOU, who understand so well!
Enjoy the rest of your day and talk to you soon!

Quelques mots pour mon "membre" français, tu te reconnaîtras..., je suis absolument aux anges depuis quelques jours car, après avoir reçu un Encouragement Award du nouveau blog Anya Ink, on m'a demandé si je souhaitais rejoindre la Design Team! Incroyable, je nage dans le bonheur! Je suis très honorée d'avoir la chance de partager ma passion avec une équipe aussi pleine de talent (j'ai aussi un peu de pression...). Challenge un vendredi sur deux, en espérant que vous vous joindrez à nous!
