Queen for a Day

Here is my tag for another swap on UKS
The background is Distress Stains and Distress Ink.  This was then stamped over with a script stamp (Crafty Individuals) using Distress Ink.

The girl (Paper Artsy) was stamped on tissue paper and stuck to the tag. The crown at the top right is die cut from a book page and glittered with Distress Rock Candy stickles, then some bling was added to the points of the crown.

I stamped "Queen for a Day" (by Anna Griffin) on the bottom, and added a crown from Girls Paperie above that, and on the girl's head.  Then came more bling around the ribbon strip and on the bottom of the tag.  I stamped the threaded ribbon with a small image by Making Memories.

Hope everybody is enjoying this beautiful Spring weather.

A bit of Bunting

I'm doing a Bunting swap on UKS and this is my effort.

The light was shocking when I took my photo so it looks a bit "muddy" - it's much brighter than this.

The background was done with Distress Stains ( so quick!), then overstamped with Crafty Individual stamps and an Italian script stamp using Distress Inks.  I sprayed the whole thing with gold perfect pearl mist and added some German scrap, some lace and a punched heart with a button on top of it.

I sprayed some book pages with pink glimmer mist and made some flowers using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and finished them off with a gem centre.

I used green Inka Gold on all the edges.

I'd better try to get the Post Office with them this week or else it will be a last minute job. ( My forte!)

Thanks for looking X

Quick Anniversary Card

I suddenly remembered an Anniversary on Monday so I needed a quick card:
The star stamp is by Lavinia, stamped in rocket gold ink.  The paper is Prima and I stamped on the right hand side of it using pink glimmer mist and a border stamp - love the smudgy effect.

The hearts were punched out of Kraft cardstock, inked with the stars again and outlined with stickles.

The banner stamp is by Clarity stamps and the ribbon is SU.

It's all much more "glimmery" in real life! X
