sweet dreams

The challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity has now switched to 9pm on a Friday. I am a little late posting my DT entry this week as I haven't been able to upload any photos until now.

The recipe this week is:

The sketch.

Use foil.

Add a tag.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

'On the spot': My Time to Craft.

'A card for a child': Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

'Buttons': C.R.A.F.T Challenge although I have only used one so I hope that counts.

'Embossing': Lots To Do.

Papers: K & Co ~ Urban Rhapsody.

The 'sweet dreams' sentiment is a K&Co foil sticker from the same K&Co paper range. It was a bit bright for my liking, so I toned it down my rubbing on some stickles. When that was dry, I glazed it with Rock Candy crackle paint.

I cut the star using my Cricut out of grungepaper, ran it through a star embossing folder, painted it with crackle paint of the type you are not supposed to heat up to make it dry quicker, but I did heat it up so it didn't crackle. I went over it again with the Rock Candy. I embossed the button with gold and stitched it to the star with gold thread. I've also added some gold embossing to the edges of the papers.

Image: Penelope Johnson ~ Sweet Dreams. I love these new PJ images, so cute. As usual, I've coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

I was concentrating so much on working the foil into my project that I forgot about the tag until the last minute. I stuck a scrap of the patterned paper to some grunge paper, cut out a tag shape, embossed with gold and added a gold embossed flower and ... voilá!

Thank you for looking.
