GDT For Art By Miran!!

Hello everyone, it’s me again.

(My blog is busy this week. Smiles.)

Today I am very, very proud to be a Guest DT for February’s Anything Goes/Twist Monochrome challenge at Art By Miran.

I chose to play with Gentleman George from Art By Miran – Etsy.

To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

Skin

Hair

Eyes

Dark Gold

I decided that a real vintage feel would suit this awesome image perfectly. So I delved in to my February Craft Box, and set to work.

The “design paper” is actually a vintage envelope, which I cut and then inked with my Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink.  I used this ink to shade around my image too.

My fabulous brass cogs are real working watch parts, which I received in the most fabulous little tin in my Craft Box this month. They are all so awesome!

The image I framed using my By DIEZyne Stitched Rectangles Dies which I originally got from Dies To Die For.

I layered everything onto a cream card base. For this I used cream hammer card @ 300gsm thickness.

The Happy Birthday is hand written, and inked also with my TH Wild Honey Distress ink.

I added another tiny cog piece to the punched hole. The “tag” I cut from a scrap piece of Kraft card.

I hope that you can stop by the blog and join in with the Art By Miran team for their Anything Goes with a twist of Monochrome this month.

I had so much playing along with this one and I know that you will too!

Thank you so much for my GDT this month guys! I really loved it! Smiles.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!

High Tea.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am bringing you  something a little different to my usual type of card.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I was asked to take part in Anne Lise’s challenge, and was given a lovely sheet to work with which included Vintage images and elements.

The sponsor is High Tea Design on Etsy and I fell in love with them in an instant.

It has really made me want to create more vintage, just so that I can use their wonderful designs!  Hehehee.

I don’t often do vintage and always find it a challenge to create.

I think it’s one of those things where you have to do it and do it, before you can get good at it. Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

But anyway, this is what I created, and I’m pleased with it.

The postcard, tags, bird and girl are all from the sheet.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Those beautiful ribbons & lace are from my crafty cupboard.  (Possibly my favourite cupboard of all.. LOVE my ribbon!! Smiles.)

My flowers I have had an absolute age, but they were originally from Wild Orchid Crafts.

(I’m at that point where I have had them so long, I know that I have to use them.  But I really don’t want to see them go. Laughing at myself here.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

My paper is from Michelle Roos Design and is from the “By The Sea” set.

My “vintage” edging is done with my Tim Holtz Distress Raw Honey Ink Pad.

I also used my ink pad on the tips of my flowers too.

It’s a great challenge and we’re all looking forward to seeing what you create.  Smiles.

Hugs n Happy Crafting Everyone!
