A little heart

Brrrr it was  frosty this morning so much so that the drivers side door was frozen, so had to  go in through the passenger side and give it a good shove lol and scrap the ice off the inside :( can do with out to many morning like that.
Anyway getting back on track Simon Says  stamp and show want to see some hearts though I'm not sure if these polymer heart earring qualify but I have been having a playing after watching a demo at the NEC

Have a great weekend all and keep nice warm and dry

Challenge 18 Artfulful Times

Woo-hoo it's anything goes at Artful Times , so a fab excuse to make something something useful for yourself or a present for a friend of just try out something different.
So taking inspiration for the Craft stamper I stuck some die cut shapes to a block of wood and covered with crumpled tissue paper and built up the colours of acrylic paint . The flowers are made from a scalloped border punch. A domino has had an image collaged onto it and and given the resin treatment

Hope you will join in the fun :)
I'm also entering this to the following challenges
Craftroom Challenge    Punches and die cuts
The Artistic Stamper      Anything goes
Happy Daze            Brighten up the month ( ice resin)

Stash buster for Out of the Hat

The lovely lassses at OOTH are asking us to use up  some stash, well these frames along with a few more have been hanging around for ages and I wanted to give them the Andy treatment, can't believe I left the Craft Barn with out buying the crackle medium ! but found a one step one at Hobby Craft .
The image transfer isn't as crisp as I would have liked probably due to the pixelation  and looks better IRL and I use black on the top of the crackle which was a thick coat and varnished,  the smaller frame the same base colours had a dark purple used after the crackle which was applied much thinner and didn't varnish
The frames aren't finished but I didn't want to miss the deadline again !

Thanks for popping by :)

Have a good weekend and thank you for popping by

On to the next challenge chosen by Neet to make a make a fabric tag, NOW don't say but I don't sew you don't even have to pick up a needle if you don't want to I didn't :)
Using the same shirt I made the lavender bags from I cut a tag shape then set about spraying it with colour wash, I then stamped my image from Crafty Individual onto the tag and another piece of fabric with Archival black. White acrylic was then scraped on I coloured the image with the colour was and darkened the edge with a pro marker cut it out and stuck it down with double sided tape, I then stamped the flourish and added some dots with liquid pearls finally added the text again stuck with double sided tape....... Opps I lied I did stitch the flower and the trim on
So come on and give fabric go and join us at Artful Times
