9-4-9 atc swap

9-4-9 atc swap hosted by Mommabear on LTD, open theme. I chose to do this cherub (by La Blanche)as the centre piece . I used Ink it Up dye based ink in turquoise to stamp and also to colour the background spritzed it with water, then dropped spots of gold H2o onto it , sprinkled a little gold embossing powder & heated it. Stamped & embossed the frame, corners and birds, added the message - no sleep, no dreams!

This arches swap organised by Andrea on LTD was open themed but had to have recycled elements on each. I have used some fabric & a key chain on the first , a piece of card & a coffee stirrer on the second then a scrap of leather & a watch face on the last.

Altered tin

I altered this little tin for a swap organised by Tracy on Crafting Corner. It is a flat miniature cigar tin which I painted with green acrylic then covered the front ,back & inside with Making Memories Boho Chic paper then sealed with clear gloss. Inside I put some little gift cards and evelopes which have been painted with H20s then stamped with Studio G mini stamps overstamped with a dragonfly (freebie from Craft Stamper)
