Simply Neutrals #39 - a little late !!

For this weeks Simlpy Neutrals  I want to show you a tine
book I created , taking a wonderful class from Nellie  , (the link takes you straight to her Etsy .

It is created with Watercolour paper, and old rusted bits and pieces. 

The pages were also treated fairly hard with water, and inks.

And then this card  created with remnants from gifts from my dear Lynne,
The red paper, and the sewings, are both from her sending goodied to me .

And lastly these beautiful flowers , now digged into the garden earth, to
hopefully arrive again, next winter ..

With this I also wish you a beautiful and Happy Easter, dear friends.

Yes ,-we are already on number two piece for the Challenge :


And this is my sample ,- one of the smaller FDM hearts which I gave some
texture, using the stencil, Reverse Honey Comp, with Texture paste.
and after painting over with  the Green paint softened ,with White-
One of Lynne`s Affirmations I stamped onto a piece of beautiful red paper, ,she kindly  gifted me ,-
and also the script from Textures stamp set, was stamped onto another piece of the paper,
and rolled together to form a script-rool. The text was torn out in two, and adhered to the
heart, after adding a frame of black .

One of the wild flowers and an antler used as a scroll , were both painted with softened Bright Magenta , and to the scroll I added Texture Sand Paste ,in some areas, which was
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,
and the quote between tulip and scroll .

The last thing to do was adding green cord through the two holes
made with my Crop-A-Dile .

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)
