Tree .....


Made a small card ....

The card base is white card cut to 4 x 4 inches. I then made a base from watercolour card and lot's of water and paints, allowing it to dry. It was then matted on mid brown card.

The tree was then die-cut from more coloured watercolour paper.

The sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink, die-cut and matted on more of the mid-brown card.

The matted background was stuck onto the card front and the tree added over this. The sentiment was added on foam pads to finish.

Simple but effective ......

The sentiment was stamped in Archival sepia ink on white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It was matted on brown Kraft to outline before adding to the tag.

Finally the tag was applied over the starry swirl on foam pads ......

Made these ATC's for a swap .......

I cut the bases from re-cycled food packaging to 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I then chose some text printed paper from Crafty Individuals as the background and cut three pieces.

I then used a crackle stamp (Crafty Individuals) and over stamped the text paper with three different colours of Archival Ink knocking back with white Gesso. Over this I stamped a ledger stamp in sepia Archival in and added a postmark and hearts (Crafty Individuals) in black & red Archival Inks.

The images were trimmed out  and coloured with grey Distress ink washes. The medals were coloured maroon with Acrylograph pen and some glossy accents were added to the dogs eyes.

I then added some torn Washi tape to ground the dogs and applied then on foam pads, edging with a shadow with Inktense pencil and a waterbrush.

Chaos ......

 

Felt a Tim Holtz moment coming on so decided to re-purpose this chocolate box which measures 7 x 7 x 1.5 inches.

I chose a number of TH printed papers and trimmed into squares assembling 9 of them on a piece of card. I then used a black Posca pen and doodled between the joins of the squares to add some interest. I then used watered down Gesso to knock back the brightness.

I then chose a numbers stamp and a dot background stamp inked with Archival sepia ink to add some interest to the background.

Next I added a sunburst (TH) with a stamp inked with orange Archival ink. The edges were lined with white Posca pen. The man (TH Paper Dolls) was added on foam pads after edging in black ink. in front of the sunburst.

I then used some cork scrabble pieces on the left to spell 'CHAOS' they were stuck in place as shown.

The background was finished with a word sticker (TH) which was added and edged with more black Posca pen. It was then applied to the box top .....

Box .....


Made this re-cycled box after being inspired by the talented Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals ......

The box originally contained  French Macarons (which were delicious) and was already teal coloured. First I painted over the branding on the sides of the box lid with teal acrylic paint to prepare.

I then took a piece of watercolour card and tore it to fit the lid allowing for a border. I then used a variety of Crafty Individuals printed papers and collaged the watercolour card in a rough oblong with them. Once happy I stencilled lightly in places with Distress Inks. I then knocked back the brightness with some brushed on white gesso & edged some of the panels with black micron pen to add depth. Two pieces of Washi Tape from AAll & Create were added with French words.

I then took two old Crafty Individuals stamps of flowers and stamped on white card with Versafine black ink, heat embossing with clear embossing powder. They were trimmed, coloured with Distress Ink washes and matted on brown Kraft & pink cards. These were also knocked back with white gesso.



I then applied the flower panels as shown. I stamped 3 mini butterflies also from Crafty Individuals, trimmed them out and added as shown.

The whole panel was then applied to the top of the box to finish .......

The dome and base were from Hobbycraft and it contains a base with an LED light to illuminate the contents. 

I didn't make all the contents but bought the eggs (Cadbury Mini Eggs), the felt daffodils and the Chick.

The base of the dome was coloured with green acrylic paint. I then die-cut a grassy border from green card. This was applied around the base of the dome.


I then made a nest from jute twine and stuck the 3 eggs into it with a glue gun. The chick was then stuck in place next to the nest.  I then hot glued two of the daffodils back to back onto some green wire, added leaves, and bending the wire and applying to the base with hot glue at two different levels to fit inside the dome.



I then die-cut three bunnies from printed paper and coloured the ears and nose with pink Posca pen, adding white and black for the eyes and whiskers. I added white pom-poms for the tails. These were hot glued in place at the back of the dome to add interest at the back.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card and added to wire and stuck in place with more hot glue.

The base of the dome was then covered with yellow Washi tape and decorated with yellow self adhesive gems to finish .....
