Happy Saturday everyone.

I can't believe the horrid weather we're having. I hope you are all staying safe & dry

This week at ALLSORTS we have a fab colour theme, 
we'd like you to use a combo of  . . .


I have used: 
Magnolia ~ Tilda unanchored
Raspberry Road Digi Papers ~ Glory Days
DooHickey ~ Flag & Cloud
Memory Box ~ Clouds
Tim Holtz ~ DIs
I've had lots of people ask where I get my scrim from.
The scrim I normally use is no longer available 
from B&Q but I have found an alternative.
I have used cotton gauze from the chemist at Sainsbury's
It is available in a pack of 100 rectangles for about £2.80ish, so a lot cheaper than cheese cloth!
One rectangle is ample for three cards.
Also I print my digi papers on cream, matte card stock ~ about 160gms.
I then sand the edges of the paper to show the core.
I also use the same for my rolled flowers, it makes them stronger than using just paper.

I'd like to enter the following:
Totally Tilda ~ Seaside
Deep Ocean Challenge ~ Sea of Love

Thanks for looking,

Stunning colours and design for this one Fleur, I love how you sand the edges of your cardstock and thanks for telling us where you get your gauze, I got some cheesecloth off the internet for £2.90 but don't know if there was as much in it.
Love your gorgeous Tilda and perfect attention to detail!
