TTCRD challenge- One fine day









                                         












Hello lovelies, hope you are well! There is a brand new craft challenge over on the TTCRD challenge blog today which is sponsored by Sparkle'n'Sprinkle
The lucky winner will receive a $15 gift card to spend in their online store. 

Here is some info on our sponsor:

Our products are not only hand-blended, hand-pressed and hand-packaged in the United States, but our glitters, embossing powders and flockings are also manufactured in the United States (not imported) 

Sparkle'N'Sprinkle supports local manufacturers who make quality products using healthy, enviromentally-safe ingredients and fair labor practices. We hope that our loyal customers appreciate our efforts. 
Your quality crafting time deserves quality products. 











Here is my DT creation; I have made a tag just slightly larger than ATC size and have used these beautiful papers from my stash. 






Once I adhered the paper onto my tag, I then rounded the edges using an Xcut corner punch. I distressed the edges using walnut stain distress ink.

I have used this wonderful Sketched pear blossom digital stamp, which is already pre-coloured. 









Here I have added a beautiful vintage photo booth photograph that I purchased over on Etsy. Next, I fussy cut the pear blossom digi stamp, inked the edges with Walnut stain distress ink and adhered it on top of the photo. 





Finally, I printed out the words 'one fine day' and adhered them to my tag. 


Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next post! Hugs Zowie xx

Vintage Entomology tags





Hello lovely friends, hope you are well and looking forward to your weekend! Today I am sharing with you a few vintage Entomology tags that I have made.






I found these free fabulous clipart images on Pinterest and decided to use them in my creations. 






To create these, I first started with some kraft card stock and adhered these beautiful papers from Manu Design studio and Raspberry road designs over on Etsy. I love these paper collections, they are so great to include in your creations! 






I have used both sheets of paper on all three tags and distressed the edges with a distressing tool and walnut stain distress ink. 







Next, I then tore some book pages, inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink and adhered them to the middle of the tag. To finish I adhered the clipart images and printed out the words 'Exhibit A,B and C' and adhered those to the bottom of the tags. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next one! Hugs, Zowie xx

Bella Rose Garden Collection

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creation for Linda Isreal. I have made a vintage envelope pocket and tag using the stunning Bella Rose Garden collection. 







I created this envelope pocket using a plain brown envelope and adhered these beautiful papers from the Bella Rose Garden collection. I have distressed all edges using a Tim Holtz paper distressor and Vintage Photo distress ink to keep my project old and vintage looking. 












                                       




I also made a tag to fit inside the pocket using co-ordinating paper from the same collection. 






Here I have made a small floral collage using baby pink Sweetheart blossom and  white Cherry blossom. I also added some cheese cloth, white pearl stamens and die cut leaves from M&C Boutique. 






Finally, I added a sweet pink butterfly from the collection and printed out the word 'love letters'.

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next post. Hugs Zowie xx

Through The Craft Room Door Challenge









Hello lovely friends, hope you are well! Today there is a new challenge over at 'Through the craft room door'. The sponsors this week are Createful Heart Design and here is a little bio about them:





Hello and welcome to our store, Createful Heart Design! My husband and I create cute and wonderful digital images - for all of your card making, scrapbooking etc.. Just print and color in by hand or we have a few pre-colored images available, soon to offer more! 




The prize of this challenge is four beautiful digital stamps from their Zibbet store. 






Here is an art journal page that I have made for this challenge using the wonderful Vintage butterfly air mail digital stamp. When I saw this, I knew that I wanted to make something vintage and grungy!







To colour the Butterfly, I have used a selection of brown tone Faber Castel pencils. 



I have used a selection of Royal Langnickel Crafters choice acrylic paint in almond, raw umber and burnt umber to create the background of my art journal page. I also used a variety of mixed media stamps along with Archival jet black ink.



Finally, I printed out the quote 'blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures' and added it to the page. 



Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next post, hugs Zowie xx
