The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge July

My third post today
It is now the seventh week of the Calendar Challenge over at The Craft Barn, this week I have found so much easier than last week's, for finding turquoise was very difficult.  Yet, Lilac and/or Purple with /without some Dry Embossing has been more fun. Thanks ladies for an easy week.  I used an Embossing folder on a piece of cream card. Used a brush to apply Dusty Concord TH Distress Ink over the card. Added a few purple jewels in the flowers. Added my calendar onto a piece of Crafty Cards paper, the same paper which the main image is matted onto. I added a home made flower, the instructions can be found for Spiral Roses on my tutorial blog. Finally added some lilac gingham and plain purple ribbon.

  9. Hi Cazro,

    I cannot answer your question via the mail, as you have a no-reply blogger account.
    If you'd like to know how to change that, I can tell you.

    To answer your question:
    Teykol is used as a resist, I think you can only buy it here in Holland, from Art Journey,

    if you'd like, I can find out from Louise (Art Journey) whether she also sells it somewhere else....

  10. Fabulous calendar page Caz. Love the colours and embossing and the beautiful rose.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs, Fliss xx
