Vintage Bottle Top

Just a quick post to add my Vintage Bottle Top. This was an entry I made for the daily challenge in the Craftymess Group. The theme was "use a bottle top", so I stamped and coloured an angel image from Crafty  Individuals, then cut it to size to fit inside the bottle top.Then I added the little silver heart that is encrusted with little pink rhinestones.Using glossy accents I fill the bottle top,enough to cover the heart.The photo shows its not quite is a lot clearer and brighter when completely dry.

Monochrome Block

I'm going to try and update my blog this weekend with all the stuff I've made over the last week or so.
Here is a block,another from a rubber stamp,that I altered for the crafting group I am in on facebook.I have used this rather gorgeous clear stamp from Inklylicious...another stamp I just had to have,lol. The theme was black and white so I knew this stamp would show up really well on white card.The whole block was painted in black matt acrylic paint before I added the image and embellishments.

Above or Under the Sea

Well the Challenge is under way over at although I had several ideas for my DT make, I decided to make this framed scene.
The frame is recessed  ( which I painted then  distressed )  which gave me the space to add some shingle and dinky little shells behind the glass. For the background I used my rubber stamp,shaded it with distress inks,then used it to seal the frame.Finally I added those 2 adorable Seahorses from Crafty-Emblies to finish the make...hope you like it.

Trick or Treat Sweet Bags

An unusual project for me...well it was think of something quick or make a I came up with these sweetie bags.
This is my DT make for  
We were given 4 images to use from..... use for our Halloween theme, which was chosen by teamie Tracey.
I honestly wasn't sure what to make,my first thought was to make some little flags,using the images and then putting the flags in green jelly....but in the end I went for the sweetie bag. I printed off the images in mini size and coloured them in using pencils, then cut them out and added them to the orange and black bag labels that I also made.
My grandson, who is staying with me at the moment has his eye on the sweetie bags......he's 19 by the way,lol.
