Challenges and Presents

Hi All, I have been AWOL for the last week but I have managed to make a bookmark for a friend as a birthday present which I have entered in the Craft room challenge
and a box for my D-I-L to be. The box is all antiqued with a blue tinge as in the box is the blue garter for her wedding day. I made the box so she can keep it as a keep sake. I used Sams's technique for image transfer and it work really well.
I also missed out on a JFF challenge, those Zentangles were just amazing I  have visited the blogs and was just amazed by the work presented. This week it is the turn of  Neet and a guest artist Marie of Dollydaydreams   a great choice and I love the theme this week Marie. Those DT entries are just fab. For my entry I have used a mini canvas and used gesso on the which to swipe DIs in scattered straw, olive green and worn lipstick as well as some inka gold. I dabbed gold paint through sequin waste and then stamped my steampunk leaf onto tissue paper I then cut this out and used glue and shine to stick to canvas. I made the cogs and used the gold dabber and rock candy crackle paint. I then rubbed in metallic rubs added brads and wire. Hope you like it. Hugs Sandra XOXO

Craft Room Challenge

I made this for a dear friend and thought it would be a great entry in the new Craft Room Challenge. Love the inspirational DT pieces a great start to this new challenge blog. Hugs all thanks for stopping by XOXO

All things Sir Tim

Over at JFF this week the theme is "All things Tim Holtz" now I love the great Sir Tim. (lord of all things altered), so this challenge really floated by boat. Nice one Sam. I chose to do ATC which I used TH distressed inked, broken china, sugar spun and milled lavender. I then painted with a shimmer and shine paint (not a TH product). I stamped the ATC with a TH background stamp and I die cut a TH swirl then embossed with a gorgeous pink. I made the grunge paper flower used DI worn lipstick and milled lavender used another TH stamp on the flowers. Added couple of leaves punched and embossed green. My "mostly" Tim Holtz ATC. Have a great weekend. XOXO. PS it is more shimmery than the photo suggests.

Eye Spy

 A little late with my entry this week, as I have been enjoying a lovely weekend away scrapping most enjoyable. I really didn't know what to do for the JFF challenge this week the Theme is Eye Spy. Luckily I spyd this lovely little sizzix owl die and just fell for him. I used a tag and DI tumbled glass, bundled sage and a bit of forest green. I then cut out a branch another little sizzix die (both die's from the same lady so: Thanks Penny). I did back stamp with trees and of course his supper. Have a great week all. XOXO PS think I am all owled out now LOL.
