Pimp A Matchbox

I came across an out of the ordinary challenge which I quite fancied having a go at --Pimp Your Matchbox--I have a couple of ideas and this is the first one -not one I planned but kept coming across butterflies sooo went with it.My matchbox is a household box which is just slightly larger than the usual box-12cm x 6.5 cms.
I covered the box in paper from £1 shop/the fancy die-cut borders are Tattered Lace/small black butterflies,brad pull,pearl feet from stash/the oddment on drawer front was from card embossed with TH-EF and wiped with black acrylic.The top butterfly was cut from sticky backed fabric and stuck onto black card for stability,the little butterflies inside were from google--hopefully I have time to make another couple.

ADFD Nap Time

Morning and my word blogging three days in a row!!!I am delighted to say I am back on the DT at CCC Digi Creations-thank you for the invite Lisa.We have a new challenge starting today "Pink-for Breast Cancer Awareness" and we are sponsored by A Day For Daisies.
I used the beautiful image "Nap Time" coloured with promarkers,the papers are all oddments from stash/the flower paper frame is a die-cut negative/ribbon and flower from stash too.
I tied a knot in the ribbom instead of a bow then promptly covered it with the flower!!!Not put a sentiment on yet but would be a perfect new baby card.

The Eyes Have It

Morning and we have a new challenge at Stinkin Inkers-which is "The Eyes Have It." I made a journal page -the background is Aztec metallic paints(actually a page where I just wiped brushes when finished instead of wasting the paint)then marks were made with an old plastic card/bottle top/ruler and fine liner pen and white gel pen-the bubbles border is a rubber stamp I won a couple of months ago from Lost Coast Portal and the birds was a craft mag freebie-the eyes and glasses were actually errrm cough cough borrowed from my grandaughters and was with some marvel comic-so recycling too-could have done with a sentiment though.Just though it added a bit of sci fi to the page--what do you think lol???--Just agree with the crazy woman--and no harm will come to you and yours lol--(only kidding!!!)

Truth is------

Morning and I have two DT posts today the first one is for the Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving challenge at Love to Scrap and we are sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays who generously sent all the DT a stamp set.I received "Truth Is"- you get 3images and 9 sentiments.I loved these stamp and made two project the first is a card using watercolour cardstock and used Decoart Mists and Cosmic Shimmer mists but dripped onto wet card rather than sprayed,stamped the image and sentiment-die cut three leaves with Crafters Companion dies swiped with versamark and used 4 diferent mica powders.

I then made a tag with watercolour cardstock and used same technique and products but diferent sentiment stamps and a flower border also from the set-the edged stamp is a craft mag freebie and distress inked the edges.
