MAWTT Challenge 71. . . . . . . . . .

Good morning all. Hope things are well with you all.
Thank you for your lovely comments about my photo on my last post though I am worried by the ones who said that I didn't look how they thought I would.....I looked nice lol!!!! I'm sure there is a complement in there hahaha!!!

Today is a new challenge over at MAWTT and the topic has been set by Nursey Harrop and is.................................

Now, I did fortunately get to meet up with Nursey at the MCM show on Saturday. Always a pleasure Mrs H and thanks for the pokey tool!!! 

Our Nursey loves a quote and sentiment or two and I thought this gift I had made for Nesta, would fit the bill nicely. She is having a new kitchen (Nesta not Nursey) and I made this as a kitchen warming present.
There was a bit of a goof up with this which actually turned out for the best (or so I think anyhoo). I had masked off and gilding polished the centre, stamped the florals around the edges and sentiment and then intended to glaze over it all with a matt glaze.
However, in my eagerness, I grabbed the pearl glaze instead.
As soon as I started to apply it, I thought "oh dear, ooops" or something very similar but couldn't wipe it off without it taking the ink with it grrrrrrr.
Just had to wait to see what it dried like and I was pleasantly surprised. The pearl gave the florals an almost ethereal look so it was a happy accident intentional outcome.

Slate heart
Stitched Heart dies (on my website)
JND Spring Flowers, Summer Flowers and Autumn Flowers stamps
Kaisercraft Sentiment stamp
Cosmic Shimmer Mint gilding polish
Cosmic Shimmer Pearl glaze
Diamante strips
Black Archival Ink

The stamping does show up more in the sunlight.

So, get yourselves over to MAWTT and see what the other girls have come up with and get your creative hats on and join in.

Before I go, I thought that I would just warn the WART members that my little Ninjas are poised and ready to defend.
When I mentioned WART, Molly showed what she felt about them..................

And my fearless little feline Lily, is now actively on patrol on the Wisty.........................

You have been warned!!!!!!!

  2. Hi Ang, this is absolutely gorgeous, and just perfect as a gift.
    Beautiful photo of Miss Molly, and we'll done Miss Lily,have a good day, Kate x x

  3. Hi Ang,
    I should think the Wisty Warriors will be quaking in their boots after that warning! Lol
    Absolutely love the heart you made! It's beautiful! xx

  4. Beautiful slate heart Ang. A lovely gift. Sounds like you have been having fun out and about. The kittens look as if they are doing a good job guarding the Wisteria.

  5. Hi Mrs D, Lovely gift and I think your happy accident with the pearl worked out really well.Glad to see the ninjas are taking things seriously !!!Beware all wart members. Stay healthy and happy Lots of Love Barbara D xx

  6. Hello Ang,
    You looked just like I thought you would - that's all I'm saying ha ha.
    As for the kittens, pooh - they'll be putty in my hands and June and Wendy aren't known as the Ninja Warriors for nothing!
    The heart is lovely and sometimes making a mistake proves to be a great idea.
    Take care, hope you are feeling o.k. Any sign of Flash?
    love Maureen xxx

  7. Hi Ang

    A very gorgeous gift for Nesta and her new kitchen

    Good to read you've been out and about enjoying yourself too

    Love the photos of the security guards, especially Miss Lily, poised and ready for action..... I have been known to be a 'kitty whisperer'.... just saying

    Take care

    June x

  8. Love this heart plaque. The flowers are very subtle and pretty. Cute kitty pics! Have a great day!

  9. A lovely plaque for Nesta. I am sure it will be take pride of place in her kitchen. Wow the little kitties are growing quickly and you are training them

  10. Hello Ang, what a beautiful gift to give a good friend, it has given me an idea for a belated present. Good to see that the feline ninjas are on patrol. Take care all. Bx

  11. Nesta will love this plaque Mrs D. Say hello from me - to Nesta, not the plaque! We had a very enjoyable time at the MCM and it was great to be able to sit out in the sun chatting and catching up! Roll on the next one. Take care. Christine xx

  12. What a lovely gift for Nesta. There are some other great ones in the challenge. Your kittens look so cute ( not a cat person myself though).
    The sun has done wonders for the wisterias - I’ll emai you pics in a day or two. Are yours looking good?

  13. Lovely project and a great challenge Something that would really challenge me
    Wish Nesta luck with the new kitchen although my build and kitchen went like a dream and I love it
    The kitties are growing fast

  14. Morning Ang, this is so beautiful, what a lovely gift for someone, and I love the intended accident, brilliant

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  15. What a beautiful gift, Ang.

    Take care.

    Anne (Northampton)

  16. Morning Ang,
    A lovely present.

  17. Hi Ang,
    beautiful creation and such a super lovely sentiment.
    Love your outcome of the the pearl glaze it looks so stunning.
    Kitties look good on patrol forgot to mention my son has dogs to patrol his wisty. LOL.
    Lots of crafty love and gentle hugs. Jenny L.

  18. Hi Ang a beautiful gift with a great choice of sentiment words. Love from Jackie xx

  19. I don't for a minute understand how you did this, Ang, but it is very amazing and looks like a brilliant slate heart with a glass sediment insert! I love it! And I love the little furry imp photos, too! They are really making themselves at home now I see and doing a good job of being watchcats!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

  20. I love your heart with the happy accident. My accident yesterday was not so fortunate. I was opening a bottle of acrylic paint and it sprayed all over my favorite top. I am thinking maybe I should sprinkle more spots on it so it looks like part of the material design. The price of creativity.
    Those two Ninja Kitties really should keep all the varmints away. Wisty thievery must be rampant in the UK but you are well protected.
    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie K
    SC/USA (where it is now hot as mid summer)

  21. Morning Ang, your heart is beautiful and I'm sure Nesta loved it.
    It was so nice to see a photo of you as it's nice to put a face to a name. and it also helps with planning the Wisty Raid, as we now know who to look out for. The kittens are beautiful but with Junes Bells attached wherever is appropriate I don't think we have anything to worry about.
    Take care Ang, keep fit and well.
