Mix & Match with Tiddly Inks & Make it Crafty

Morning all, I hope everyone is well.

It’s an exciting day because finally time to release the big Mix n’ Match collection from Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty!

Together they have been craftily plotting behind the scenes for months (making us drool in anticipation) to bring out a fabulous collection of Steampunk creations with a Victorian theme. You’ll find little steampunk houses, bits and bobs background scenes, flying contraptions, gorgeous characters and a fine selection of digital papers.

We could send you on a little hop, but they are getting a bit boring... so they knocked their heads together and thought up a game to play instead!

‘I SPY’ with my little eye...
... hmmm what do you spy??
Well to find out, head on over to where it all begins!!

CLICK HERE to find out more and play the game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, this is my card using a couple of the new release images: I merged Tiddly Inks 'Owlette' with 'Chaise' from Make It Crafty - I just couldn't resist that little owl and so wanted to try my hand at colouring the polished wood and plush fabric of the Chaise. I hope I did them justice. I added ribbon,flowers, black pearls, a metal corner and a leafy diecut to finish.

Images: Chaise by Make It Crafty; Owlette by Tiddly Inks
Colouring: Copic markers
Designer Paper: Paper Cellar's Victorian Burgundy
Metal corner: Wild Orchid Crafts
Everything else from stash
