Crafty Play Day Makes

Hi Peeps
 
Here's my weekly post showing what me and Linda got up to on Wednesday
Linda was over at mine this week
 
We decorated some MDF tissue box covers we bought from the MDF Man at Summer Crafting
and also played about with stamping on to material
but I've not quiet finished them off, so I'll share next week
 
It was so hot mid afternoon that we mainly chilled in the garden n chatted.....
 
 


 
What I Did
Painted box with Umber acrylic paint
Applied IC crackle medium
Painted with white acrylic, once dry I sealed it with Mod Podge Matt
 
I cut flowers out of grunge paper and washed with white acrylic
Stamped over with Versamark and embossed gold
The leaves are just coloured with Inka Gold
 
I made up flowers and whilst they dried
I stencilled the flourish with Inka Gold and rubbed some over the edges of the box
 
Then stuck the flowers on and Ta Dah all done
 
Thanks for looking

Crafty Day Makes

Hi Peeps
Just a quick one to show what me n Linda got up to on Monday .....

I'd spotted a fabby article in Mays Craft Stamper by Ellei Knol- Groenveld so we had a bash
Here's the results,  they need to be matted up and turned into something yet.

 Spritzed green and yellow inks onto craft sheet, pressed my acrylic block into ink then 'stamped' onto card stock, stamped text and label in dove grey then stamped lady in black cut her out and added to card, drew wobbly line with fine liner, added Vintage Photo DI to edges.
Used Imagination crafts spray inks and Paper Artsy stamps
 
 
Picked up the left over ink from the first one and stamped with it, over stamped with script in grey, the added the birds in black ink, Pierced round and drew faux stitching.
Stamps from Tim Holtz and Indigo Blu

 
I added a splash of purple and just smooched the card around in the left over inks, then spayed water on to soften and get them to bleed into each other, then white washed over with D stain picket fence,
Stamped images with white acrylic paint, stamped and cut out the bottle coloured in and washed the butterfly with same colour and did a bit of faux stitching with inksentials pen
Stamps from Paper Artsy
 
We had great fun doing these

Crafty Play Day Makes

Hey Peeps
 
Just a quick post to show some of the things we got up to on our weekly craft day
(In case you don't know me and Linda get together once a week to chat, get messy and eat hobnobs)
 
First we made our daily challenge projects for Giggles group
 
 
 
Then we had a play with our Melt Pots (no burns this week!)
But Twinkle nearly landed in Linda's pot when she jumped up for a nosy !!!
 
 
 
Then I showed Linda how to do this unusual stepper card I found on Split Coast Stampers, My apologies the the lady who posted it as I now can't find it to show you where it is oops !! I'll keep looking and share it once I do.
 
 
 
 
Its quite easy as you basically make three steppers in descending sizes and glue them all together !! I've done this in three different shapes now and they all worked really well !
 
Thanks for looking
