Sooo Slow, I'm snail like!

Remember a few weeks ago Try it on Tuesday had the challenge Wonderful World? I didnt get round to finishing my sample for the challenge cos I bit off more than I could chew! The project just kept growing and growing and I just ran out of time!

See what I mean?

I started off thinking about a card and it suddenly became a diorama! The Background is made from a combination of Chocolate Baroques Nature Table and Autumn Hedgerow and the wee wren is of course one of Jayne Netley Mayhew's birds. That wonderful sentiment stamp is from Rambling 2 set from The Stamp Man - love it!
All coloured wth pro markers the berries and the conkers were given a coating of glossy accents to make them stand out.

I loved every minute of creating this, it got the creative juices flowing from the myre I've been in! - now who shall i show it to??
I think I'll show Hels on her challenge blog this week as her theme is Mojoless and I've certainly been that!

I spent so much time on this I just had to enter it into more challenges so found this fab challenge at Crafty Catz  who wanted to see Things with Wings

This week the team at Try it on Tuesday want us to go


so here's this week's sample - early for a change!

and this weeks challenge is sponsored by

Hope you like

I havn't entered a challenge in so many months so thought I'd enter this into the Truly Scrumptious Challenge too!

Wow Michelle, this is a truly stunning piece of art. I marvel at your patience in putting this together but it was Oh, so worth it, it's beautiful. I would never dare attempt anything like that.

Love your CAS cards too. Using pretty masks is one of my favourite things and the images you have used are gorgeous.

Your nature scene is just amazing, Michelle, I can see why it just kept growing. I love those conkers and the mushrooms, or should that be toadstools are gorgeous.
Your minimal cards are lovely too, the background colours are really striking.

Love all of these. The diorama is excellent but the resist on the other two is excellent and I especially like the flutterby. Lovely work x
