Well hello lovelies - how are you today? I'm good and feeling much better than yesterday when there was a powercut in the night - so no cuppa first thing and no warm milk for my kiddies before school! I hope I remain feeling good after my weigh in later - if I've lost I can have a glass of vino tonight - which may very well be needed since my big girl is going away for her first ever Brownie camp for two nights ----- boo hoo ---- don't worry I know she'll have sooooooo much fun!!!!
So onto today - I've got two makes to share with you - the first was made with My Creative Corner and Country View Crafts in mind. Its a tag using lots of different TH stuff - I had lots of fun doing this:
I started by making the background - I used punice stone and black soot distress inks and smooshed over to cover the tag. Then I applied purple radiant rain using a sponge and did some spritzing and flicking. Next I stamped the cobwebs with versamark and added black embossing powder and heat set then added the black texture paste using an Imagination crafts stencil. I added in the TH Remnant rubs and then stamped the chemist and bottles images, coloured with promarkers and fussy cut before adding them to the piece. Finally I painted the numbers with Distress paints and added them using their brads. Also added the ribbon.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Our Creative Corner: ourcreativecorner6Halloween tag with surface texture
Country View Crafts:countryviewchallenges Something Spooky
FSCfashionablestampingchallenges: Use a mask/stencil
LEJ:lejdesignschallengeblog Dark or gothic
PCJpaper-craftingjourney: Halloween colours
Next I want to show you another Sheena technique card - this one is bursting with techniques - but my favourite was making the coin - I melted clear UTEE in the melting pot and added some chunky gold WOW powders, stirred and poured onto a craft sheet. My coin stamp was mounted onto a flat block and I inked it up with black stazon and pressed this into the UTEE. After about 30s to 1 minute I removed the stamp and cut the excess away to reveal the coin embellishment - I think more of this sort of thing will be heading your way shortly!!!!
Have a great Friday! Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon!
