Tim's clasic's butterflies

Hi everyone I thought I would try blogging on the move
We are  on our way to Cornwall and as usual Nick 
Has managed to miss the turning of to Salsbury 
and we are now heading to Southampton 

Well I did this card in the week I took a craft tag and stamped the 
Tim holtz  collage page stamp onto it with black archival ink.

I then highlighted areas with white gel pen Around the 
edges I blended faded jeans distress ink.

I used a Tim holtz paper with butterflies on and coloured 
these with red brick and spiced marmalade 
Distress Staines .

Then I used rock candy distress stickles on the wings.

The rock candy picked up the colour of the butterflies

An gold triple embossed strip was used 

Stick on and frame the butterfly name.

Tha dah! As Boots would say one card done. I hope you have 
Enjoyed this half on the go blog.

Jo Firth card

Hi everyone! I have been quite lately but have had a bit of a play today,
and out of it came this card. 

Firstly I put glitter paste through a circle stencil.

Once dry I painted a grey board square with Nougat and
 snowflake Fresco Finish paint.

I then introduced baltic blue and Mocha mousse, knocking it
back with nougat if it got to intense.

I then inked up the Jofy collection 09 plate with Ranger Archival

Once this was done I painted the buds with Claret and Rose Fresco
Finish Paint.

Taking a white gelli pen I then followed the lines and highlighted 
the buds.

I put a bit of white fire treasure gold on my finger and highlighted
the glitter paste circles.

I poped this onto navy blue backing card then stuck it all onto 
A square card.

Ta dah! all done hope you all enjoyed this simple card
Thank you for stoping by and please feel free
to leave me a comment or two.

Journey by Dee

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the weather for those of you
 that are here in the UK.

Firstly I coloured a craft tag with distress ink in weathered wood 
bundled sage and peacock feathers and a touch of 
vintage photo, which I then ran it under a tap.

I cut out a piece of garden sack and coloured it with
 little black dress Fresco Finish paint.

I then inked up a manila tag with tea dye, walnut and black soot
Distress inks. The compass stamp was stamped again on white card and a 
diamante gem fixed to the centre. 

The compass stamp was stamped again on white card and a 
diamante gem fixed to the centre. 

I inked up the compass stamp from indigo blu with vintage photo
and stamped it all over the tag also a Tim Holtz stamp from the 
Steampunk plate. I applied Tim's tissue tape to the
 bottom left of the  smaller tag.

At the top right there is a Lynne Perrella Collection 004 stamp 
underneath the Tim Holtz Film strip. all held together by a
 antique copper eyelet and brad.also a s
crew brad in the hole at the top.

The Ballon is from a Indigo Blue set and the men from 
Tim's steam punk set.

I have a cogs embossing folder and put black card through and 
coloured with treasure gold. 
I hope you all enjoyed my piece & please feel free
 to leave me your comments don't be shy.
Thanks for taking the time to 
stop by.
