Hello all, this week at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge is to use at least one of the following embellishments: flags, tickets or tags. I have a tag on mine.

I am also entering this at:

Papers: My Mind's Eye ~ Quite Contrary. I've distressed all the edges, inked them up and added some stickles.

I distressed the tag in the same way and added a layered happy sticker, which has been in my stash for year, so I am happy to be able to use it up!

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda in Summer Rain. Coloured with copics with added stickles.

Thank you for looking.

Paris haute couture


This week at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a blue & white or blue & cream photo colour inspiration. I have gone for blue & cream and given it a vintage feel.

I have used Graphic 45 ~ Fashionista Collection papers.

I distressed a tag by misting with two colours of Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist and then inking the edges with distress inks. Love the effect this gives.

I then inked up this beautiful Stamp Happen Inc ~ Paris Socialite stamp with denim blue ink and stamped it onto the tag.

I made a matching manila cardstock base for below the spotty paper by spraying and inking in the same way.
The wooden mannequin is by Kaisercraft. That got the same treatment as the tag and then I added some gems and a cork button.

The top of the tag has some silky navy blue ribbon and a Tim Holtz ~ Philosophy Tag. I smudged some gold paint into this to highlight the word and numbers.

I am going to enter this in at:
Thank you for looking.

i do ... vintage wedding

With sincere apologies, I am very late with my Crafts 4 Eternity DT post this week.

This week's challenge is a sketch which I've rotated anti-clockwise.

I am also entering this in at the following challenges:

Here is my finished piece, for which I am finding it impossible to take a decent photo of the whole piece in the light we have at the moment.
Papers: Graphic 45 ~ Baby 2 Bridecollection.

Felt archway: Prima to which I've added some dimensional flowers.

I've added a Tim Holtz ~ Kraft Glassine Pocket which I've decorated and included some tags in the pocket.

The image is Magnolia ~ Tilda with ~ Veil. As usual, I coloured her with copics and added some stickles to the flowers.

The tags are also by Graphic 45.

Thank you for looking.
