Blackbird

A couple of things today ... I finally got to finish a project for the new challenge over at The Play Date Cafe ... a colour splash challenge ... This means black and white with a splash of the colour given ( this week there is a choice of 3 splash colours , copper, gold or pink). This is the beautiful inspirational picture ...

 The DT have done some fabulous creations .. pop over and take a look ...

I went with the gold ... I wasn't sure what I was going to do and then a light went on ... literally! 

I came up with a lamp ... I got to use my Tim Holtz  birdcage die for the first time and Love it! I went with a blackbird ... black and white vellum, black cardstock (to make the base) and gold trim using my spellbinders and mirri card ...



This is the light that goes inside ... It is one of those 'click and stick' lights that are not expensive and use a battery ... However I also can fit a glass jar inside should I want to use a tea light ...
It wasn't easy to photograph the lamp with the light on so excuse the next picture ... a bit blurry but just so you can see ...

I added some black crystals and some clear gems, a little flower and some brads ... Not a masterpiece but I had fun making it ... 

Club night went well though we were missing a few people ... thought you might like to see a couple of pictures ...

Me (5th from L) with some of my group, my friend Lynn (3rd from R) and some support workers ..

Working away ...



And these are masterpieces! 



Have a lovely day ...
Till soon
