A CARD AND ECO-DYING RESULTS


Hello dear friends , I thought I wanted to show you some of my 
Eco-dye results , and first a card ,where I used two leaves dyed onto
paper . Put together with laces, old book page, scraps and embossed papers.


This beautiful leaf is dyes onto a piece of cotton ,
I used vinegar, and rusty pieces in the boiling water ,
and also the rust was sitting maybe a week in the pot ,
before using it to dye, so there were a lot of rust dust !!


They comes up as little spots onto some of the pieces.


These leaves are also on cotton fabric .....


And these and the one below..... as you can see they comes out 
very differently, -surely because of the different leaves I have used
are giving different colors and strength of print !!


The two last pieces are both onto paper, and from the same bath 
as the ones above , I love this whitish leaf where the veins came
out a little yellow . If you click the photos, you can see more details.


I hope you are not bored , this new area is really giving
much excitement  and joy , even it can be difficult to keep
patient , and wait overnight , before opening the bunch up .


Here we celebrate Christ`s Ascension today, so
the world outside is quiet , --and I thought I better make 
a new blog posts. 

A lovely day to all of you ,-
Hugs and love

Collaged card , I think !!


Yes still not totally finished, so maybe it will be framed and
used as a card , along the way :-) 


I used the lovely image from  Nicie Ibarra : https://www.etsy.com/dk-en/shop/IbarraCreations4U
The stenciled detail is from a wonderful stencil from https://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/
and the rest lovely old and new fabrics and papers from my stash .


The paper was Eco-dyed , and stamped a tiny bit and the
butterfly is an old punch from Martha Steward .


Here we have a Holiday tomorrow , so the working people
mostly have a day off, making it a long weekend .

I hope you are all well, and feeling good, dear friends. 

Sending you 
hugs and love

FREE - a collaged card !!


How are you all ? Since I was away last long weekend, I might have missed
some of your postings, but I hope to visit and see all your creations , soon.

For this card I used bits of a Tim Holz diecut , an old German train ticket ,


and the flower is also diecuts  mixed together.
The stamped heads I embossed with gold ,and
also wiped gold paint over the diecut fence .


There is dry embossed paper under the flower, and
I couldn`t resist to sew here and there on the mashine,
and leave hanging threads.


Tomorrow is already Friday again, so I wish you all dear friends,
a lovely weekend. 

Hugs and love

Le petit - bits of this and that !!

Paper scraps , Paper Artsy stencil , bird image ,
from old book : Bird Guide 1923-  
laces, acrylic paints and crackle medium .

I love how the heavy crackle paste have crumpled
the paper together , and have become fond of
the hanging threads , like many others !!


The wonderful find of the old book  : 
Bird Guide , Land Birds East of the Rockies, have been with
me for many years , and I have not made myself tear out pages,
until now. I desided to use it, and enjoy it , instead of
letting it stay on my shelf, and maybe have it thrown out later!! 


I`m adding this to , sweet Wen`s Simply Neutrals , and hope you
feel to go there and see her beautiful post , just click the link ! 


Have a lovely rest of your week, 
 and thank you
for your kind and loving comments, they mean so much to me, and
I treasure each and everyone , and you all dear friends.

Hugs and love

WINTER CARD


Hello dear friends, seems long ago I was here, so wanted to show
a card, I recently made. 
I was inspired of the sewing done by Diana https://velvetmothstudio.blogspot.com/ 
on this beautiful post , Thank you Diana !!
I used sprays , very diluted , and two stampsets from
That`s Crafty , : Lynne`s Affirmations set 6, and Set 7 ,
and also the script stamp from their Textures Collection Stamp Set 3.


No , I`m not back on the team, but Laura showed me much kindness,
so whenever I use from her products , I will mention the shop .
...........
I also used lovely sari ribbon , --and lace from sweet Jesse http://lace-age-girl.blogspot.com/


After stamping the tree , I sewed here and there on machine to show some 
branches more off !!  If you click the photo , you can see it better !!
Also sewed a little flower stems , and added two winter white flower heads.
The circle is a remnant from New Years eve and the fireworks !!


Thank you for your visit, it is always a joy to see you here .

Hugs and love
Dorthe
