Anything But a Card


Hi Folks, I hope that you are having a lovely sunny morning wherever you are. I'm just back from a weekend away at Alexandra Palace where I met up with some of my lovely crafting friends at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show. It was a great weekend, catching up on lots of news, watching some fabulous demos and of course, stocking up on crafty stash. I always come away with lots of ideas, and enthusiasm for new projects. Hopefully, I'll have time to put them into practice!

I have a tag to show you today for the Artistic Inspirations challenge blog. This week, the theme is 'anything but a card', so we'd like to see your tags, boxes, altered items, etc. I have used an image from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish called 'Sunflower 1' as the basis for my project, and chosen a colour palette of greens and yellows.

I used a large tag, which I covered with Prima paper, adding a bit of Distress Ink for extra colour. I stamped a large Stamp Camp swirl around the edges, before distressing them and colouring them with more Distress Ink. I coloured some scrabble tiles with DIs and stuck those to the tag. My flower is from the Persian Motifs Spellbinders set, as it reminded me of a sunflower, and is again inked with DIs. The butterfly is from a good old Primark necklace.






Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish:




Robyn is offering 5 digis of the winner's choice

The Scrabble Tiles are a super idea & look absolutely super. The gem on the butterfly draws the eye beautifully & I love the way your die-cut with the button echoes your sunflower image.
Sounds like you had a fruitful time........
