Chipboard and fabric!

I love adding fabric to chipboard and have done it a few times.  It adds a completely different dimension.  Today I have covered a *heart* and added it to a *media board*.
I beaded the fabric before I glued it onto the heart, tucking the raw edges around to the back.  For the media board I gesso'd and then laid some *crackle paste* through the *heart* mask.  When it was dry I gently sponged on some *DecoArt Yellow Green Light* followed by *Primary Magenta* until I felt the balance was right.  A little light stamping and a torn strip of fabric finishes it off.
Thank you for looking today and do call again.  Hugs, Karen x

owl card

Hi!  I am kicking off another lovely week on Tando Creative, this time using the Stampendous stamps that we stock.  I have made a card using the amazing owl stamp. Its the eyes!!!!
To start I painted a sheet of A4 card with DecoArt Titan Buff and a little Paynes Grey.  The owl was then stamped and roughly cut out before some Titanium White was stencilled through the *random circles mask* and some more circles added with some bottle lids. Back to the owl - I added some watercolour to the eyes and the feathers here and there to add some depth before fussy cutting the owl out.  This was stuck onto the now trimmed piece of decorated card before attaching to the card blank.
Thank you for looking today , hugs xxx

Baby Boy Card

Hi there!  I was asked by The Craft Barn to have a play with some Card-I-O stamps.  If you have never heard of them do take a look as they are tiny little accent stamps that are great to have in your stash.  From teensy birds to babygro's...there is a huge selection.  I have made a Baby Boy card for a friend of mine...

Full instructions are *HERE* 
Thank you for popping by, take care xxx

Song Title Challenge 2017

Last year I made up a printers tray for The Craft Barn's monthly challenge.  This year I am using Tando Creative Coasters - 12 in all and will probably put them into a box frame at the end.  The challenge is to work a project based around a different song title/song each month which The Craft Barn provides.  This month its 'Let It Snow' sung by Bing Crosby and Rod Stewart.

I gesso'd the coaster and added some crackle paste through a Tando snowflake mask.  I sponged some DecoArt turquoise paint over the top.  I was going to add more but just look at that amazing crackle!!!!

It would be great if you could join me in this challenge.  You can do whatever you like for it!

Thank you for taking a look, hugs xxx
