A mixed media plaque




Hi
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project  for the Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge  . I thought I would do a sweet little mixed media plaque for a change.
The sponsor this month is Cute As A Button.



It started life as a basic mdf  heart .I added some pretty papers ,stamped on the paper with grey ink and a lovely Indigoblu script stamp to add interest to the background. I then added further texture by adding texture paste through a butterfly stencil.
I applied white gesso using the dry brush technique to the plaque to give it a white wash effect. The words have been stencilled onto white card using a Phil martin creative expressions stencil and lilac ink. I used grey-board and  the sizzix  Bigz  XL caged bird die for the birdcage which I painted with gesso to match the project.
The flowers  are from wild orchid and they were dipped in glue and then into  glitter  to make them sparkle. The bird has been made using the stampin up bird bunch.
The stunning bow was made using ribbon from my MPP pack and of course my trusty                 Craft-dee Bowz  bow maker which makes stunning bows every time and you can find out how to get one from the sidebar on the left

Happy 4th of July box set

Hi
It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for this week for  the Craft-Dee BowZ ... challenge
The sponsor for this months challenge is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps



I thought I would make a lovely Independence Day set of mini cards and envelopes for my project this month.. I really enjoyed making these cards ,envelopes and matching box to hold them in.
The papers I used are from The works  the 12x 12 pad they came from is called Pretty Red Classics.
I used scalloped  oval and classic  oval spellbinders dies . The banners are dies from memory box. The flowers are stamps from Stampin up .
The envelopes are made using the we are memory keepers envelope punch board. The box was handmade from 2 pieces of A4 cardstock and the finished cards measure 4in x 3in so they are quite small  but I love the idea of a little gift box of cards to give your friends .
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Maker to make the paper bow on top of the box. It is my go to bow maker as it produces perfect single or multi loop bows every time ... with ease ,even with paper ribbon

GET WELL SOON





Hi
It is challenge time again at   Craft-Dee BowZ    ...  Wow the time is flying by. This month the sponsor for the challenge is the fantastic Bugaboo Stamps ...
 HERE is   Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was six years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! Jodie WILL GIVE THE LUCKY WINNER 4 IMAGES OF THEIR CHOICE AS THE PRIZE
For my DT project this month I used the gorgeous image from Bugaboo called  BRAT GET WELL SOON NURSE  and you will find her HERE.
I coloured the image with spectrum illustrators . I used dies from sue Wilson for the  medical cabinet frame and medical items. The sentiment comes as a set with the image


The bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ    bow making tool. It  makes stunning multi looped bows every time perfectly and you can get one for yourself following the link for Craft-Dee Bowz above
