It’s Easter week and am working very long hours ( I own a jewelery shop ) so this week don’t have much time for crafting or even my usual moaning . So as my Easter gift to you all will spare you the usual …….. how difficult it was to make my little gem and what the dastardly duo (R & B the mutts ) have been up to and get straight down to the nitty gritty. Be warned ! next week will be back to usual and all my crafting sob stories, so enjoy the piece and quiet while you can !
The Three Muses this week have set the theme” Postcard Art ” and it’s one of the challenges I didn’t want to miss I love their style and I love postcards to so it’s a match made in crafting heaven.
The lovely ladies over at Try it on Tuesday also have a great theme this week which is to ” Upcycle ” an element of your creation. Well here unfortunately it’s not quite obvious but my background is a box which I covered in beautiful gold embossed paper which I the attached silk and velvet material to.
The postcards where vintage cards envelopes and letters which I added date stamps to from Crafty Individuals and distressed and inked the edges. Made myself a couple of flowers which I embossed and coloured with distress inks and attached the ribbon to hold the letters in place.
Wishing a happy Easter to all of you that celebrate it !
