International Art and Soul - Tags

Please come along and join us at International Art and Soul and show us what you can do with our theme of 'Tags'. 

I'm afraid my tag isn't cropped very well. I have a new laptop and I can no longer use the programme that I used to use for cropping, colour, etc. Ugh, it's driving me mad though I suppose I'll get used to it eventually.

My tag is from The Works. I painted the background with Hobbycraft bronze acrylic paint. When it was dry I added the small Craft Box frame to the top and then added the cameo to the centre of the frame. I used some Snip Art circles for the bottom part of the tag and I cut some smaller sections for the top. Two or three of the circles I filled with bronze seed beads. The cameo, seed beads and Snip Art are all from Craft Box.My last touch was to use some jute for the tie. Job done.

I'm entering my tag into the following challenges:

Crafting with an Attitude - Always Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Creatalicious - Anything Goes with option of circles
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Artiste - Anything Mixed Media

I'm having a problem with my eyes so I might not see you for a while. I'm taking a break from crafting until they settle down. Hope to see you soon.

IAAS Things with Wings

International Art and Soul have the lovely challenge theme of 'Things with Wings' so why not come along and join us?

My card blank is an 8x8 by Craft UK. The backing paper is from a pad by The Works and it's matted on to some of Anita's mirri card. The dragon fly stamp and sentiment are both by Visible Image. I stamped them both with Memento ink in Cocoa and then cut them with Spellbinder circle dies. I used more of the silver card to cut scalloped circles as backings for them. I coloured the dragon fly with Sakura glitter pens and the wings really glitter. I backed them on to their silver scalloped circles and then set them in place. I used Spellbinder dies again for two corners cut in the silver card. Job done.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Art Impressions - Use Circles
Crafty Sentiments - Die and/or punch
Lemon Shortbread - Always Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
A Perfect Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
Love to Craft - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations - Things That Fly

Hope to see you here again soon.
