Rose Tag

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!

Sharing today the tag I made for the UK Stampers Forum March swap.

I fussy cut the Rose then attached to the tag.  To colour the Rose I used H2O Twinkles.  I used smooth white card to make the tag and Oxides on the card creating a halo effect with Dusty Concord and Iced Spruce.

Altered Box

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!

Sharing today an altered box, the box is made from cream pearlescent card. I covered the top of the box with white crackle texture paste, once it was dry I covered over with H2O Twinkles, Burnt Umber and Icicles to give highlights.  I covered the sides of the box with the Burnt Umber, due to the pearlescent card the H2O Twinkles dried with a wood effect.

I made the daffodils with a Sizzix die and Hearty Soft white air drying clay mixed with Mustared Seed, Squeezed Lemonade and Peeled Paint Oxides.
