SPA. Old Book Pages

 I love using book pages, so Rosie's theme this sunday over at Sunday Postcard Art is right up my street.

I covered my postcard with a page from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. I was lucky enough to have found a couple of these books in a charity shop.I bought them because the paper is such a lovely texture, reminded me of the paper I used to use at school, many moons ago ,lol

The images of birds and plants are great too. I used some blossom images from the same book to decorate the postcard.

I made a house using different book paper, stamped the script and the roof and then added the girls. 

I added the blossom and a butterfly to finish, finally sealing the whole card with modge podge.

Fruit or Veg

 Morning All, very blustery here in my part of the world today, but at least the rain isn't so heavy. I think I'll have a crafting day today, not really going out weather.

I made my Tag for Tag Tuesday's challenge a few days ago, forgot to blog it, naughty me. A great theme by teamie Pinky, she has chosen Fruit or Vegetables for her theme.

Luckily I had this lovely Orange Blossom stamp, I actually bought it 2nd hand from a selling group on facebook quite some time ago, this the the 2nd time I have used it.
I layered the images up to give the tag a 3D look and it seems to have worked out well.
Do pop over and join in with the challenge if you can.

Tea Anyone?

 It's been a while since I last blogged, I've been a bit busy with other things, but I made the effort to join in again with the challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art

The theme this sunday has been chosen by Amy, she has made a fab postcard too.

I have got a couple of cup stamps that I thought I could have used, but they really are to small to use on a 6"x4" postcard.

So I sourced a free teacup image from Pinterest (for personal use only) I love the cups!

I started by rubber stamping my blank postcard ( 6"x4" )

I then added the middle layer of a section of a napkin as it had a light image of a couple of flowers. I also added a couple of butterflies from another napkin.

Next I added some textured dots and then swiped over the whole postcard with some white paint.

After drying the paint I very lightly spritzed the card with Raspberry Glimmermist spray, the dried the card again.

To finish, I then added the teacups and words, distressed the edges with ink and once everything was dry I gave the postcard a coat of matt mod podge.

So if you fancy a fun challenge, why not pop over and join in, you can find it here at..

Pretty Pink Makeover.

 Do you enjoy Mixed Media...then why not pop over to More Mixed Media and join in with our challenge this month.

As always it is Anything Goes, with an optional colour twist. The colour this month is Pink.

This is my design team piece this month, I chose to alter a reed diffuser bottle.

I loved the chunky shape of the bottle and thought it would look good with a Vintage makeover.

After cleaning the residue from the bottle, I adhered some hessian around the bottle and bottle neck, using hot glue.
Next I added some lace, just slightly wider than the pretty pink floral fabric I used as the last layer.

I wound some twine to the middle of the bottle and also the neck, I found the lovely glass stopper in my stash, it fitted perfectly.

To "pink" it up a little more, I added the bow and attached a resin flower to the centre of the bow.

A couple of Sporty Tags.

 Time again for another 2 weekly challenge over at Tag Tuesday

I am hosting the challenge this time around and have chosen the theme of Sport. 

When I was younger I enjoyed quite a few sports and up until a couple of years ago I used to go fishing. Unfortunately, now I am older I no longer participate in any sport.

Your Tag can be any type of sport and you can enter as many times as you wish.

Here are my Tags, hopefully they will inspire you to come and join in with our challenge.

I do hope to see you soon over at TAG TUESDAY
