Strange Beauty

Good morning, my project today is a dark themed tag.  


The main design of the tag follows a theme to use flowers, feathers and other items relating to Edgar Allan Poe.  The tag is black cardstock and I added a copy page of Poe's Nevermore book, at the bottom there is a strip of halloween themed paper I had in my stash, the sentiment was a printable from Pinterest, backed on to black cardstock.    The flowers and feathers are from my stash and to finish I added black ribbon and black lace bow.  I distressed all around the tag with green and vintage photo inks.  The image is from Rosey Hearts Etsy and I coloured her with Faber Castell Pencils.  The Rosey Hearts Challenge Blog is here and the theme is Things With Wings so please visit as this is a new challenge blog.

My second post today, this time my DT project for Rosey Hearts.  This is a new blog and their second challenge, the theme is Anything Goes/Wings.  If you have not visited this new blog head over there and check out the fabulous digi stamps available.  For my project I am using Fairy Rose to decorate the front cover of a journal.


For the background I used oddments of paper from my stash in a lilac/purple colour and then added a napkin, then gave the cover a coat of mod podge.  I coloured the image in Spectrum Noir pens, fussy cut her out and matted on to purple paper, then added to the cover.  To embellish I added purple gems on her dress, pearl beads on the cover, filigree corners, acrylic dragonflies, a fabric butterfly and a purple/gold lace flower.  The sentiment came from my stash.

GDT Spot for Fitztown

Good morning crafty friends I hope you are enjoying the Easter break.  I am delighted to share with you my GDT project for Fitztown.  The challenge for April is Use Flowers and/or Leaves.  Here is my card using the lovely image Cameo 1


I used white scalloped cardstock and DP by Papermania Capsule Collection Oyster Blush. The image was coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and polychromo pencils and I used a Spellbinders oval die to cut it out and also to layer.  I added lace at the bottom and a square layer of papers with a Memory Box swirl die in pale green.  The butterfly and dragonfly are Joanna Sheen die cuts and I used pearls for their bodies.To embellish I added a small floral display of flowers placed in a bead cap cone and added two small roses with leaves near the centre of the image.  Finally I added a lace bow with a flower center and another small acrylic flower at the top.

I would like to thank Fitztown for the opportunity to Guest Design on their challenge blog.

Creative Moments Challenge #65

Good morning, this fortnight's theme over at Creative Moments is Anything But a Card and our sponsor is 



Here is my DT project using Pansie



I started off by making a tag using thick cardstock and a layer of woodgrain effect patterned paper from my stash, then I made an open top box with yellow cardstock.  I covered it with patterned paper from Dovecraft Forget Me Not and added white lace and yellow ribbon trim.
I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and fussy cut it out and added it to front of box, then adhered the box to tag.  To embellish I fussy cut out a watering can and made a banner using a cocktail stick and Flower Seeds sentiment cut out from a gardening magazine.  Finally I placed two packets of flower seeds in the box and added string at the top of the tag for a hanger.

I do hope you will visit the other DT members to see their gorgeous projects and take part in the challenge.
