JRS Friday Challenge 119--Get Krafty #2

Since I had some pieces left laying on my desk I thought I'd make another card . For this one I thought that Tim's bare branch tree should meet JRS Musical Notes Labels 20. The tree was cut with corrugated cardboard and sponged with picket fence distress stain . I  stamped and embossed the birds colored with DI Iced Spruce and then cut out freehand .The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Egyptian gold EP . This was a fun card to make .

Just Rite Friday Challenge #118--Behind the Mask

Well it's time for another great challenge over at Just Rite Stamps again . This time we are to use Masking as a technique. This is what I came up with for the challenge .I stamped the verse first on a peice of white c/s then stamped it again to use as my mask ( I wanted to create a look of the verse in the center of the bouquet). I then stamped the flowers over the verse  and cut it out using the spellbinders Lacy circles die .  I then made another mask of the flowers and used to cover the image while I sponged with Tumbled Glass DI to give the image some depth. The image was the layered on English Tea Doily by CLD. The butterfly I stamped twice cut out freehand and layered. Flowers were colored with Copic Markers and Glossy Accents was applied to the flowers .To finish my card I used:
Pattern paper by Crate, Bazzille Shimmer c/s ,co-ordinations c/s
Stamps: Just Rite Stamps Black Eyed Susan Vintage Labels 5
CLD dies Lace Corners B165, English Tea Doily DL101, Spellbinders Lacy Circles, MS trellis punch, May Arts ribbon,

Tim's 12 Tags 2014 --April

Well another month has gone by and it's time to do my tag for April following Tim's tech. Again I didn't have some of the items that Tim used so had to improvise . Here's what I came up with . For my edge I used my Cricut cartridge Art Philisophy from CTMH and cut it out of Grungeboard . Flowers were made from papers from one of Tim's Paper pads with the TH Tattered Pinecone die  . I really love how they turned out . Seam Binding ribbon was inked with a mist I made from Dried Marigold . The metal tag was inked with Broken China Distress paint and then wiped off . If you want to see Tim's tag and take part in this month's challenge you can see it HERE.
