First Wednesday in March, and we are back with a new Challenge:


I hope you agree this is showing, spring already in action :-)

A greyboard tag painted over with diluted gesso, together
with a smaller panel, which I cut the two cornear off, and made
a hole, with my Crop-A-Dile . 
The bigger tag was stenciled in left side !!
When dry, I painted very thinned Lime and White mixed paint
over both tags. 

onto a piece of white cardstock I also painted diluted lime,
and diluted Bright Pink- and after dry, stamped with the butterfly stamp,onto both.
Also a white tissue paper was painted lime, and stamped with the butterfly-
While painting the beautiful bough of greyboard , was also given details with the same
two paints, plus a green. 

And after I used the beautiful scripture stamp over right side , stamped with
Sepia Archival.  and a thinned ink was splashed over the tag , here and there !!
The butterflies were  fussy cut and laid upon each other, the tissue paper one, in the bottom .
Onto the little tag a piece of white lace was adhered, and on top the bough . The butterfly just landed in right corner . A piece of green ribbon , found in my stash ,was tied around both tag `s  holes , and on a rest of pink cardstock , I stamped with one of Lynne`s Affirmations, and smaller tag and words were adhered to the big tag.,  

Please have fun, and play with us !!

The winners will receive wonderful gift , --
randomly drawn winner will receive a £30 voucher for the online shop. In addition to this, our chosen top 3 will receive a That's Crafty! stencil (own choice)

Everything is white outside , so much snow, and thought I would 
echo it, with showing this heart , I  created , maybe 4 years ago. 

Almost all in white beautiful old laces , a handmade flower with
added pearls, ,a golden heart, and an altered domino tile.

And this is another little winter heart with a such beautiful girl,
I bought the image on Etsy, back then- but don`t remember where
and added it to my heart :-) . 

Please jump over to Wen`s beautiful blog, to see all the amazing
Neutral photos, also posted this week !!

I`m sorry being late today but here is my 
number two example, of our Challenge 

Using a tag this time which is painted with the same colors as last time ,
mixed white and black paint, to a greyish tone- and after dry, the so beautiful stencil was used with 
Texture past in left side . 

3 smaller hearts were also painted grey, and after dry stamped with the
texture script stamp  and button stamp.
On the right side of the tag I adhered a piece of corrugated cardboard and on top a piece 
of painted lace.

Hearts , the kids and another scrap of lace were 
all adhered to the tag. 

This is another take, on our : I HEART YOU - and you can see 
many more in the other DT members blogs .

Hugs and love

And this time I chose to show you a few pages, from a little book I made

It is simple in its form and in what it features. 

And it was given to a very dear friend- in need for some peace,
and stillness in her life . I thought it fitted lovely in Wen`s 

Once again, thank you for friendship, and for love, in this Valentines week,
for wonderful online friendships, and for kindness between us all,

Yes we have a new challenge over at That`s Crafty Challenge blog 
and what else could be right for this months, other than having your heart with you ,-also when creating !!  
My sample therefore had to be made on one of the wonderful heart shaped 
white greyboards, honoring beautiful friendship, and the friends, whom
always are there for me.  Thank you dear`s . 

I first went over it with thinned gesso, and after dry, the so beautiful stencil was used with 
Texture past in left side . on right side I adhered old lace scraps, and when all had dried,
I mixed white and black paint, to a grey, which was first brushed over the lace ,

and after thinned with lots of water to get a very light tone, and then bruched
over the stenciled ,side.

The wonderful big button from Texture Collections stamp set 3, was  stamped
onto a scrap of old textile, which also, had  got a coat, of the grey, first.
I used Archival Ink to stamp with . They were adhered to right side , of the heart.

Then one of the hearts from a greyboard bits and pieces sheet 
was  painted too, and after ,I again used the stencil, to create interest, and also 
draw around the perimeter to define the shape.. 

I found two lovely friends from T.Holz :Ancestors , adhered them , to the middle of the heart,
and gave them the heart of friendship ,into their hands . The left side girl got a black "shadow" to define them, better.

For the left side of the heart I used a pompom yarn ,from my stash, 
also painted , with light grey, and a piece of crocheted old lace, in the peak
as seen below .

A lovely piece of sari silk, from my stash was inserted in the holes, I had made
using my Crop A Dille .

NOW remember if you wan t to play, too- 

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

Sounds fantastic, dosen`t it !!!!!!

Good luck to you all,

Hugs and love


From my stash:

Lace scraps-  pompom yarn, sari silk  and black fine liner .

Simply Neutrals # 30

Taking part in Wendy`s

Tuesday Party again, with two of my Neutral made hearts.

Maybe some of you have seen them before , but I chose showing them again

Hearts are needed all over, showing a little heart and a little love
to friends, and family, and also strangers, makes this world a
better place . 

I`m happy to say, that so many shows me both heart and love, in our 
blogging community, and also among so many of my FB friends.
Thank you from my heart for all your loving commends, for support
and kindness,

beautiful Simply  Neutral , blogposts to watch over there. 

Sending you all a big hug.
Love from Dorthe 


Yes ,-our new system, on the That`s Crafty Challenge blog starts this months.
The idea is to create two separate creations, but mainly using the same products .
I cheated a bit, as I uses a few other products than on my  "My delicate wings " first piece.

But mainly it is the same procedure this time :  
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

The difference is that I this time couldn`t resist using one of the newer stamps , the
text stamp on the background, and furthermore ,before stamping it directly, I adhered a piece of tea dyed tissue paper.

The butterfly and leaf were both covered in the Metallic Ice Blue and details added with orange paint 
and black Posca pen, Silver threads were adhered to the flower, and a part of one of Lynne`s Affirmations stamped onto a rest of the dyes tissue.
The leaf was adhered with a piece of painted lace under, and butterfly and text, also adhered with the 
Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive .
That`s it for my second Challenge Creation this months.

The winners will receive wonderful gift , --
randomly drawn winner will receive a £30 voucher for the online shop. In addition to this, our chosen top 3 will receive a That's Crafty! stencil (own choice)
So if you want to play with us, please have a look here  

I hope to see some of your creations, there.
