The background colour is a mixture of guacamole,chocolate pudding and orchid Fresco paints, spritzed with water then blended together for an aged look.

Love a good re-cycle!
Love these little Bunnies they are so cute. I coloured them with promarkers and just added a touch a sparkle to the bubbles.
It's my turn over at Dragons Dream TIO to choose the theme, so how could I resist (this being the middle of Summer and all, and me living at the seaside), having a coastal theme.
I've used a chipboard tag this time as I wanted a good solid base to work on. The background was crated with a mixture of distress stains, mica powders and gilding wax. The sentiment is from Crafty Individuals and the flourishes are from HOTP.
You might have noticed I love Seahorses and they make an appearance whenever possible. This is one of Caroline's and has been painted up with Imagination Crafts mica powders, which are gorgeous in the flesh sadly photo's don't do them justice, finished off with Creative Expressions gilding wax and, erm, a snowflake!!!! Yep you read that correctly lol, the fin was made from an Alterations snowflake die using a couple of layers of tissue paper, see a snowflake is not just for Christmas lol.
Hope you pop along and join in our challenge this time, just please remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag. You will find a link to the challenge blog on my sidebar.
I'm also going to see if I can enter this in to Crafty Individuals June challenge as well.

This time over at Dragons Dream TIO challenge Helen has chosen the recipe of "Red, Book pages/Text and an Embellishment". Red is another colour that I am sooooo out of my comfort zone, thus this tag is the third version!
The base started out as corrugated kraft card and was then hidden behind a mixture of paint, ink and of course gilding wax lol.
The text stamp is one of the Visual Artistry ones by TH along with the birdcage die, and also the Cherry Lyn leaves, which I love. My little flowers are my embellishment along with a few red gems.
We would love to see you join in our challenge just click on the link on the sidebar, and please don't forget to include at least one real stamp on your tag.

Thought I'd do a canvas for a change and as I need some as samples for a class later this year, am getting prepared, not playing lol.
The Bunting and Dream letters were a free printable download I found on Pinterest, you can find them on my craft board if you want to pin them.
I used the very gorgeous Honeysuckle stencil from Imagination Crafts with paste, then painted the whole canvas white, before tinting the flowers and leaves with Promarkers. I've used a mixture of no-name stamps (sorry they are very old and I can't remember where they were from :) and some Kaisercraft stamps. Then wiped white paint over the top of the black ink to tone it down a bit. I've inked around all the edges with broken china Distress ink and then decided to add a little Sparkle Medium over the top, good job it washes off the fingers!
