Secret Crafter Swap

Over on the Bubbly Funk Forum, Kathy organised a Secret Crafter Swap.  The principle was to create a piece of art, jewellery or project for a secret swappee, to make sure we knew some of our swappee's likes and dislikes we listed the things, ie colours, smells etc, that we liked....

Now that the secret is out of the bag and our swappers have all received our pieces we can now post about our work..

My Swappee was Pat:-

This is the parcel she opened:-

Pat listed one of her colour likes as Purple...so I wrapped her piece in purple and made a kraft rose from the tattered florals die and edged the petals with purple distress ink....a prima trinket and a little gift card finished off the wrapping...

inside was:-

The board hanging was paperblocked, painted and edged before being sealed (one of my fav techniques at the mo - Thanks to Hels Sheridan)...... then texture paste mixed with ferro was used thro' a studio 490 mask...this was then coloured using treasure gold.  Metal embellishments were added along with another flower made from coloured kraft and die cut....the grungeblocks were painted and sanded back and then given a touch of purple treasure gold.  I hope that Pat likes it...

I received this from Wendy:-
