A wonderful Wizard.....Halloween and all things Magick!

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!
Today I am sharing my Design Team project that I have made for this months Crafts Dreamy  challenge. I love Halloween and I am such a huge Harry Potter fan, so what could be better than combining both to translate into a craft project! I had lots of fun making this art tag and I have used elements of the Mood Board that I have also created for the CD challenge. 

Here I have used these gorgeous digital papers from the Steampunk Ephemera set.

This wonderful Wizard vintage image has been printed onto linen card stock to give more texture and interest. I have distressed it using Ground espresso distress oxide. 

Here I have also printed out some free Halloween digital clipart onto linen card stock and adhered those to my tag. Finally I added a sticker from Tim Holtz Halloween clipping stickers set...It fitted perfectly! 

You can find more details on this Months Crafts Dreamy challenge HERE
The Design Team and I would love for you to join in with all the crafty fun and we look forward to seeing your creations!

'Twas the night before Christmas

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

Tonight I am sharing with you another vintage Christmas tag that I have made.

Here I have used various vintage style digital papers which I layered and distressed with Espresso Distress Oxide. I have also used this gorgeous nostalgic Father Christmas image, which has been used as a focal point on my tag.

Music sheet: LaBoutiqueDeiColori
Vintage coffee colour: Secret Garden set 2
Nostalgic Father Christmas: NostalgieGrafikland

I have also used this darling vintage Christmas stamp.

Here I created a poinsettia using the same papers and a Tattered lace poinsettia die and embossing folder. Three Christmas trees have been made from Kraft card stock and the Marianne Createables Christmas village decoration die set. I also embossed the trees with the same poinsettia embossing folder to give them some more interest. 

Finally, I added the sentiment 'Twas the night before Christmas' 

Hope you like my tag! thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Zowie xx

Welcome Fall

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

Today I am sharing an art tag which has been inspired by the beautiful colours of Fall 
(or Autumn, as we call it here in the U.K!) I just love how Mother Nature changes from season to season, she is truly wondrous!

Here I have used paper from my own Craft Stash and this gorgeous vintage image.

I have also used these burnt orange Botanicals and a piece of torn 
corrugated cardboard. I also printed out this sentiment and adhered it to my tag.

I wanted to create a few layers on my tag, so here I have used a vintage library card and ticket stub. All edges have been distressed with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide.

Here are a couple of close ups of my tag.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to visit, I really do appreciate it,

A Christmas Postcard

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

I am so excited for Christmas this year, a little early I know! But it will be extra magical this year, as I have become a nana for a second time! I now have two grand-babies as my eldest daughter gave birth to another beautiful baby boy, eight weeks ago. My grown up children are in their Twenties and my youngest is Thirteen. I miss Father Christmas coming to our house on Christmas eve, so having the Grand boys, I can still keep the magic of Christmas very much alive! 

Today I have made a vintage Christmas art tag, which I wanted to share with you.

I created my tag using beautiful papers from the First Edition wild at heart paper pad and a digital Music sheet along with this gorgeous Reindeer postcard image

Here I have used Kraft card stock along with two Reindeer metal dies, which I distressed with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I also added white dots using a Uni Posca white paint pen.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by, I appreciate your visit!

Nature pocket card

Hello dear friends, hope you are well! 

Today, I am sharing with you a nature inspired pocket card that I recently made, inspired by the lovely and extremely talented Stacy Zimmerman Hutchinson from Tattered Nest Designs

To start, I took a blank Kraft envelope and covered all sides with these beautiful digital papers from the Secret Garden set 02 and Secret Garden set 04

For the inside of the card, I created some pockets to store my art tags HERE  which I made for this project. Here I have hand-stitched a beautiful vintage photo booth photograph to give some added interest and I also added a vintage stamp and some Botanicals.

I have adhered some music note tissue paper to this pocket, which I also used on my tags to match the theme. 

These beautiful Botanicals have been inked with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide as have all the edges of the pocket card and tags. 

I have also used these beautiful Vintage bird illustrations as tags and as a focal image for the front of my pocket card. 

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit!
