About the Artist

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

CraftyHands Challenge Blog - Challenge #2 - Vintage

WOW WOW WOW!!! There has been a mammoth number of entries over at CraftyHands Challenge Blog for their first ever challenge - Anything Goes.  Such an array of fantastic entries, well done to everyone who entered.  A winner has been chosen and what a wonderful prize to win.

So here we are with Challenge #2

This is my DT project for this fortnight

I made this tag using vintage style paper from my stash, I used matt medium to adhere a cream doily and then added a vintage napkin image again using the matt medium.  I added some cream ruffle trim with some cream flat backed pearls.  I added some lace behind flower clusters added one of my handmade stickpins and edged all flowers with some waltnut stain distress ink.  I stamped the word 'Dream' from a Prima stamp set as well as another one of my favourite Prima stamps of vines which I added around the edge of the tag.  To finish off I threaded through and tied some crochet cotton trim through the eye of the tag.

I hope you like my creation for this challenge.  

The prize for this challenge is a collection of Docrafts Papermania Spots and Stripes - Festive so generously supplied by Tonya from CrafyHands.  Perfect for this time of year with all the Christmas cards that we need to create.

So lovely! I think the lace instead of a ribbon works so very well! x
