Mans Best Friend

A digital page from me today made for the Digitally Made challenge Pets/Animals.

My page features my two lovely dogs Josh and Murphy.

I used my Craft Artist programme for the border, frame, butterflies, leaves and words, for everything else I used some of my photos.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely day. xxx Hazel.

SPA - Tropical Summer

Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying the weekend.
This week I'm hosting the Sunday Postcard Art challenge and the theme that I've chosen is Tropical Summer.

I've gone digital this week, I found an image on the internet and used it for the background then I had fun using the Craft Artist to embellish it with flamingos, flowers, birds, palm tree etc.

Thank you for taking a look, have a lovely Sunday.

Rainy Day Tag

Good morning everyone, I have a tag to share with you today, I made the tag for the UK Stampers July swap.

For the background I used Infusions and Distress Oxide. I stamped the image with an Inkylicious stamp. I stencilled some raindrops using a stencil with some Dreamweaver translucent embossing paste, unfortunately they don't show up on the photo.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely weekend.

Hi everyone, sorry I've not done much commenting lately, hopefully by the weekend I should be visiting your blogs.

The challenge at Moo Mania and More is Cats so I'd like to enter a card that I made a couple of months ago.

I matted some paterned paper onto a white card blank. For the background I used distress ink to colour a Justrite stamp, before stamping it I sprayed some water on the inked stamp. The images were stamped with Laurel Burch stamps onto white card and then I coloured them with felt tip pens and cut them out. I added some flowers and sequins.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely evening.

UK Stampers - Inchies

Hi everybody, not been a very good week, on Monday we found out that Josh our dog is very ill - going to a specialist clinic tomorrow and on Thursday we said goodbye to Chandler our lovely cat, she had a good life and reached the grand old age of 20 - will miss her lots.

Today I'm sharing the inchies that I made for the UK Stampers July swap.

I used scraps of inked card and they were all stamped with Inkadinkado stamps except the mermaid, not sure what make of stamp she is.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely day.

Altered iPad Cover

Hi everyone, it's been over a year since I've made anything for the Altered Eclectics Design Team, but now I'm back and for my first project I thought I would give my tatty old iPad cover a new look.

This is my iPad in it's altered case and below it is the old tatty case.

The first thing I did was to glue together all the bits that were falling apart.

I gave it a coat of white gesso and covered it with some lovely Imagination Crafts rice paper.

I added layers of acrylic paint, stencilling and stamping.

I used Stampendous stamps and dies for the butterflies. The butterflies were glued to the cover and I gave it a coat of matte medium, when this had dried I coloured the butterflies with Pitt pens and added some word stickers.

Thank you for dropping by, why not pop over to the Altered Eclectics blog to take a look at the lovely projects that the rest of the design team have made.
