DT Clarinda - Two shabby tags for you

Hi everyone,

I hope you all have had a fantastic and safe Easter!! I am back at work now after a lovely and relaxing short time off work. S, as I haven't crafted in a while I thought that for my second go at creating something shabby I would have a play with the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks and see what I could come up with. This is the result.....

I used the Oxide inks to create the backgrounds. Once dry I stamped them and hand painted the images using a range of acrylic paints. I then allowed them to dry and stamped Tim Holtz sentiments on each card. Next I decorated with sticky back crystal flourishes and ribbon.

Thank you for visiting,
Clarinda xx

Hey Everyone...I hope you enjoyed your easter break! 
Its Tracey back with you to share my second project for this months theme "SHABBY"
I created a Shaker card. 

First up I used my fuze tool to make a pocket......I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but it did not work that well. So.... out came  my sewing machine. I think the stitching looks a little more shabby any way with the odd thread hanging.  I stamped the bird branch image on the pretty pink pattern paper then inserted it and lots of shaker mix to the pocket before stitching it closed.   

Happy is die cut and glued to the front of the pocket, a little washi tape, a stamped sentiment and my fav crochet doilies.

Happy Crafting
