A quick post to say I am sharing over at That's Blogging Crafty today ... the sneak peak is of one of the That's Crafty! MDF splat uprights I designed for one of the Hochanda shows earlier this year. (Whoops nearly forgot this one!)
Today sees the start of new challenge at That's Crafty - the theme is Outnumbered. Numbers must form and significant part of your project. I used numbers stamps, stencils and remnant rubs on this card. I think I went too far - it looks a little strange!
Apologies for the brevity of some of my posts of late - I seem to be chasing my tail a bit!
Today we see the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey - hosted this month by Annie. The theme is The Magic of Three.
I decided to work on a large MDF tag. This project developed as it went along really although I had seen an image recently on Pinterest - by Zoe Hillman that was influential in the design!
I started by painting the tag with gesso and then smooshing it around in a mixture of brown distress paints. Once dry I added crackle texture paste through Tim Holtz latticework stencil. Again once dry I added more paint - browns again and cracked pistachio - sometimes off my craft mat and sometimes with my finger.
I die cut three greyboard circles, some wildflowers and mini detailed butteflies and sponged with the same brown and pistachio colours.
Finally I added one of Tim Holtz's new Metallic Quotation stickers.
Hello for the second time today! If you missed my earlier post - Tag Friday - for A Vintage Journey, you can find it here.
Today we have a new challenge at That's Crafty - where the theme is Foliage and Flowers. I decided to make a birthday card featuring the new Sentiment Words, Mini Tattered florals and Wildflower dies - all by Tim Holtz.
My background is embossed and sanded kraftcore card.
Wildflowers and tattered florals are coloured with distress inks.
