JFF & Birthdays

I seem to have had a very busy weekend (when are they anything else LOL) had a fab day at Papermaze crop and after baking cakes on Sunday morning I eventually retreated to my craft room to make the challenge for JFF week 3 "Oh for the wings of a bug". I have two entries for this as I covered a little book for my Mum it was her birthday last week. The book lends itself to the challenge very nicely, I also made a tag so that I could take part in the swap. I used the same stamp on both pieces (I love this stamp it is one of my favorites). The tag has been inked with DI dried Marigold and forest, softly backed stamped with a floral swirl. The girl bug has been stamped on separate card and back washed her skirt with pearlised pale green. The wings have been painted pearlised pink and lilac then decoupaged.  I then added a small firefly bug which is embossed to sparkle and leaves a bling trail. I have added rock candy crackle and rubbed metallic into it.  The little note book has been inked stamped and metallic rubs used the letters have been embossed 3 or 4 times to give it the 3d effect. Mum was very pleased with her little note book. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping to visit. XOXO.
