Peace & Tranquility

As if I need to tell you it’s Friday today … all you crafters out there will be chomping at the bit for 5 0’clock to come around so that you can dash off home ready for your weekend of crafting heaven to start.

Today is week 4 of the Crafts-Too-Challenge You which has this months theme of texture.
Onto twist 2 of the theme and we would dearly love to see you add something shiny or glittery.

My DT make this week is a tag which has just about everything on there that makes me a happy and relaxed bunny when crafting.

Stamping and especially colouring really surrounds me with such a charming sense of peace and tranquility. Everything just shuts off around me and I hear and feel nothing except the stroke of the paintbrush. I know that sounds really mushy but I do honestly feel like that.

All the cares and woes just drift away and leaves me with a face like this … 😀

Painted her with a mixture of mediums but mainly Cosmic Shimmers. Loads of texture on the tag … oh my, even die cut some gold mirri card … which I have to say I rather like!!! Stamped the butterfly onto DP then added glossy accents before pressing the little gems into it.


The pretty embossing folder is an A4 Crafts Too which I used on the tag and the vellum envelope. More texture with the gauze material and the stamped sentiment which is one of my faves from Dyane Reaveley. Now it’s your turn to have fun and enter those scrummy pieces plus hop on over to see what my other teamies have made.
