Hand Made Embellishments and Another One!

I have just realised that the next Tanda Teaser goes live tomorrow and I haven't even posted my version of the last one here on my blog.....So this is a quick post to give some details.....

For the card I used a mixture of stamps by Tanda, Paperartsy and Lost Coast designs. The main image (Tanda) was coloured with copics and distressed with distress inks. The flower was stamped with Paperartsy stamps and cut out with their matching dies. The flower centre was made using a bottle top, stamps, seed beads and UTEE. The die cut flowers and leaves were coloured with distress inks, curled to give depth and the edges of the petals and leaves were brushed with versmark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

In the last couple of days I have made a card for my husband's cousin who has just got into dress making. Her birthday is on Thursday, but I am sure that she doesn't know of my blog so I think that I am safe to post her card here.

I got the Tim Holtz tattered floral dies just before Christmas and have been looking forward to using them to make some embellishments....Here I used Tim Holtz stamps on tissue paper with pumice stone distress ink. I was trying to get the effect of using pattern pieces. I layered them up, scrunched them and used buttons to make the flower centres. The main image on the card was stamped in black soot distress ink and then coloured with copic markers. Art Journey sewing stamps were used to make the background with pumice stone distress ink.

The next Tanda Teaser goes live tomorrow so watch this space!
