blueberry pie


Welcome to another Friday at Crafts 4 Eternity.

Today we have another awesome sketch, which is so versatile, I had many ideas for this so may well use it again. Also use autumnal colours. I decided not to go with the traditional autumn colours of oranges and browns. Instead, I was inspired by blueberries and upon choosing the papers also picked up on the yellows.

Papers: Sassafraslass ~ Woodland Whimsy: Blueberry Grove, including a section of the border, which I added to the side of the tag.

I distressed a tag, by crumpling it up a bit and inking the edges. Then I decided to stamp a script stamp on there.


I didn't wait for the ink to dry before I glimmer misted it, so of course the wording ran. I was going to throw it away, but quite liked the colours that ran out of it as it matched all my other pieces! I ran it by OH who said he liked it!!! Shock horror! I said, but you can't like it, look all the ink has run and it's distressed. I still like it, he said. Uhmmmmmm. So I went with it.

The image is Magnolia ~ Blueberry Tilda just knew I had to use her with these papers. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles. Those blueberries really sparkle!

The flowers and leaves are Prima, I inked the edges and glimmer misted them. I added some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon.

A couple of lace circles with hand stitched buttons.

The cork clock is Pink Paislee and I added a Tim Holtz game spinner.


I am also entering this into the following challenges:
'something yummy': Raise the Bar

'D is for distressing': ABC Challenge

Oooooooh, I LOVE this!!! I didn't realize until reading that the background wasn't sort of a hilly pastuer but is in fact words!! Well, either way, it works!! I love the colours and tour Tilda looks spectacular, the embellies are terrific and that paper, I NEED some of that!! I have been on a quest for paper, white in base with little blue flowers on and, this will do!! I'm such a copycat!!
hugs, stephanne
