seems all

birthdays and then its quiet for a few months... we have had a couple of "0" birthdays too....

This month I've made these:-


A small canvas with texture paste thro' a stencil and free hand 40 - then covered with acryllic paint - the highlights were added with treasure gold - a tando butterfly coloured with distress inks and some little treasure gold flowers finished it off....

then:-


another "0" item - this is for a very stylish lady....various background papers stamped, stencilled and edged with neocolour 2's - the image is a stamp I've had an awful long time!! the flowers from Wild Orchid and a bit of prima bling finish it all off.

Then:-


This one is another stamped image from a stamp I've had an awful long time, flowers and bling as before...

then a tag for a present:-


The base was coloured using dylusion ink sprays and then stamped with Tim Holtz sewing stamps...the manequin was cut out of grungepaper which had been coloured using distress stains - using the same stains I coloured vintage ribbon and tied this around the waist and to add to the tag base.  The bobbin was also cut from the mannequin die, this was painted using distress paint,  edged with distress inks and stamped using a Hero Arts "Happy Birthday" stamp.   I ensured that I had enough grungepaper coloured to cut out three images from the tattered florals die and this I made into the flower - pins and bling added....

They are all gorgeous and so specific for each person by the sounds of things, which will have made them even better for the recipient.
