About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Craftymess Challenge Blog

Choose a Country

This fortnights theme is 'Choose a Country' and is sponsored by Sassy Images who supplied us with a choice of images to create with. 

This is my DT Project for this Challenge.  I have chosen and  coloured the image 'India Honey' available from Sassy Studio Designs using colouring pencils.  The tag I created by finger smudging some gesso over it hear and there and dried it using my Heat Tool.  I then used some TH distress inks, Victorian Velvet, Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans.  I stamped a TH image along with some scroll images I have in my stash.  I spritz the tag with water to change the background effect. Added lots of beads and bling to add to the India feel and tied up with some seam binding coloured with some Cosmic Shimmer in Marigold.  I then added some black trim topped with some pink/black bling mesh (this is the first I have ever had or used this stuff and I love it).  

I hope I have managed to capture the Indian Summer colours and added enough bling to this project.

Please come over and join in with us as I mentioned about this Challenge is sponsored by http://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.co.uk/ and the prize for this fortnights winner is digi images of their choice.  
I hope to see your wonderful creations over at 

Great to be back, lots more to come.

Great Big Huge Hugs
