ROUND TWO ,- A STITCH IN TIME

Hello all, to the second round of our challenge over at : 

This time, again I used, one of the wonderful  White Greyboards
as background, and playing onto a piece of craft paper , I left the white
page up ,and only run around it with the Jet Black Archival ink.
The craft paper I tore in right side, and also went over the perimeter with ink .

The paper was given a gesso layer, and after I used a left over PDF piece ,from one of the sheets .
I dipped it into Black gesso, and used it as stamp, in 3 places--see the wonderful texture it gave .
On top of that, when dried, I stamped the beautiful butterfly from  Collection stamp set 3
in two places on the paper .



They were also stamped onto a piece of fabric, using the stamp platform ,
stamping over again ,to give enough effect. They were fussy cut, and adhered on top of the other butterflies.In right side a little diluted black paint was, added and allowed to run.
In left side I used the new Stitch stencil ,and in right I sewed a line on sewing machine ,
adding a torn piece of old lace under.Another piece was sewed to the paper in lower left side.
Onto a paper scrap I wrote, : A stitch in time, and adhered it to the lace piece.


Lastly I used the new Apricot Multi Surface paint , in a few places , to add 
a little color and to match the butterflies ., and of course I left the thread in long ends,
hanging from the panel , to which the finished creation, was adhered.

I hope you enjoy the challenges , where you know :

The winner  will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

Please make sure to read our challenge rules before entering.

A wonderful Pentecost week to you all.

A STITCH IN TIME - CHALLENGE TIME

YES challenge time again, and this months called 
Click the link to go there :-) to see all my DT friends,
also showing their wonderful challenge pieces . 



I used a White Greyboard panel as background, but created all onto
a simple craft paper , to which I added very diluted black and little white
paints  .- After dry I stenciled with the new Stitches stencil - 3 rows 
of stitches ,using the Light Texture Paste .


The heart  from Lynne`s set 3- looking very stitched, was stamped onto 
a scrap of yellowed paper , and torn around the perimeter, to give place
to sew , one straight line and one zigzag line, on the sewing mashine ,leaving
long thread ends to hang from the hearts.


They were adhered on top of two pieces of thin fabric ,
already in black tones, - 4 buttons were sewn to a piece of white cardboard ,each ,
and adhered to right side of panel. Extra white threads were attached under the
hearts, and a rest of cardstock torn , run over the edges with Archival Jet black,
and after I wrote : Stitch , and adhered it to left side panel .
Two strings of metallic thread  was made to hanger, after punching two holes
in the top panel !

I think this is it :-) and wishes you a wonderful Wednesday .
It is my daughters birthday today, so for me a very happy day !!

Hugs and love

GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES NO. 2

Have you visited the http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/  lately, to see all 
the CHALLENGE pieces , from both the DT , and all the ones taking part !!
So many fantastic creations, to be inspired by, and  : 

this challenge will run until 10am, Wednesday 2nd May. Our next challenge will start at 11am on Wednesday 2nd May.

The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

Please make sure to read our challenge rules before entering.


My inspiration creation for this second Challenge is made on mostly 
a piece of crumpled copy paper, after adhered to a White Greyboard Panel ,
I used Multi Surface Paints in Teal and Chestnut Brown , first dabbing over the paper 
with very diluted colors. After dry I stamped the script , from Textures Collection  Stamp  Set 3 
.The big circle with a smaller inside, is actually the roll from a finished taperoll-
as I wanted a big circle . Also used is the smaller circle from .
Textures Stamp Set - 2 


Onto tissue paper, I stamped Donna Gray`s beautiful tree,from her 
Carved Whimsy Wood stamp set. I tore around the perimeter
and adhered it to the paper with Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.
Another few circles were stamped on top of it . 
From Lynne`s Affirmations set 3 -the line of birds was stamped onto a rest of the painted copy paper,
with Sky Blue, Brilliance ink , torn out and also adhered to the paper.
The tree trunk was extended a bit, by stamping the end of the trunk , between the line of birds. and sewed and adhered to the paper, too. 

With my sewing machine I sewed around one of the big circles , with teal thread, and
cut the thread to hang ,dangling.  4 teal buttons from my stash was also sewed onto the paper .
Paper was adhered to the panel, and also a piece of canvas,netting, teal fabric ,below the
birds. Lynne`s Affirmation ,from set 1 was stamped and adhered to the teal fabric,and another
button carefully sewed on.  Around the perimeter of the panel I painted with diluted Chestnut Brown ,and stamped a few buttons, from Textures Collection Stamp Set -3.

I think this ends my rather long story, and am thanking you so very much if you followed
me all the way to here :-) 

Love and hugs 
Dorthe

GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES


April is here ,hopefully with a lovely spring to visit too, very soon.


This months Challenge called :" GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES "
made me think of so many possibilities, as where we look there
are circles in life . 


I chose a White Greyboard Panel ,to which I first did nothing !!
But started on a piece of normal copy paper, painting it with a mix of 
Multí Surface Paint in Green - Lime- and a little Mustard Yellow..
From the paper I tore a piece which was adhered to the panel.



I then stamped circles using stamps from :Textures Stamp-Set  2- and 3- and
also from Nature`s Faces -Set 1 by Melina .They were stamped
using Archival Ink ,Jet Black and Brilliance ,Moonlight White .


Pieces of handmade brown paper scratches were adhered to
the button and a piece of cotton lace also painted with a bit of the green mix, and brown,
was together with a handrolled rose adhered , too, forming more circles!!
The rose is made from a circle cut into a spiral ,and then ,from outside, turned around itself, and hold in place ,using a hot-Gluegun.
 A pair of Tim Holz paperdolls , and a stick from the garden  rolled 
with a green piece of fabric, and a string , were also adhered to the paper.


Making holes with my Crop A Dile and inserting sari silk ribbon , finished the project!!
.................................

This challenge will start at 11am on Wednesday 4th April.

The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

heart, after adding a frame of black .

also painted over. Stem and leaves of tulip was painted with Green.
And scroll and paper roll was adhered to upper left heart. Also the scroll was framed with black. 
A piece of gauze was painted with watery green and adhered to buttom heart, the tulip on top,
