My Partner in Crafting Crime-Christmas Tags

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am to show you a matching bag and tag I made for our challenge over at My Partner in Crafting Crime this fortnight. I used a mask, Kraft tag and bag, Distress ink and gold glitter.
I started off imagining this as my background but once I saw their shimmer with the gold glitter I decided it would be a shame to cover their natural beauty up! I sponged distress inks over star masks and then coloured round each star just applying the ink directly. I then chose parts of the star pattern to glitter with gold glitter.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Kraft Journal: Kraft Christmas Gift
Bows and Berries: Make a Tag
Paper Creation Ink: Christmas
Quirky Crafts: CAS
2 Sisters Challenge: Make it Sparkle
Bah Humbug: Christmas Bag or Box

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
