DANCE ON THE BREEZE OF LIFE

One of Lynne`s amazing Affirmations, which I used, to create for this weeks challenge
over at  :  http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/  .

The CHALLENGE is STENCILS  , and wow, so many possibilities with all the stencils to choose from over at Laura`s shop :   http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/



I started with a White Greyboard  tag 
sprayed with Sleight Blue , when dry I added Vintage photo to the perimeter, and highlighted also in between with the Salty Ocean, and Teal , then stenciled the beautiful Dinky stencils ,Bubbles, and Fossil, using different Oxide Inks.



The Hummingbird, and feather were both stenciled onto prepared cardstock 
fussy cut, and after details were painted with fingers, also using Oxide inks, and fine liners 
black and brown. 
Lynne`s wonderful Affirmation, was stamped onto old paper, cut up and adhered to tag, with bird and feather.- a piece of colored lace first added to the top tag !!
In the bottom tag,  a great new medium Texture Sand Paste was smeared out, and painted with diluted and mixed paints of Chestnut Brown and White . Also around the fossils , feather, and bird ,I painted this .


When all dried, I adhered remnants from the sea, picked up, on my walks from the beach,
here is cord and seaweed together with a straw .

You know you can take part in this challenge, yourself, with the possibility to win the price of this Voucher.


Just pay a visit there, to read the rules , and send in your wonderful creations !!

Hugs and love
Dorthe

CHALLENGE : FLORAL FANCY- (EVERYTHING FLOWERY )


I`m here with my Friday challenge , to show you my idea of a FLORAL FANCY .

http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/



I used a White Greyboard panel ,which I first sprayed with Infusions 
to male a airy background.
All the Bits and Pieces Grayboard pieces : 
Funky Flowers, Fairy, and Hummingbird , were painted with white acrylic, and the flowers and bird were run through the Big Shot inside a Sizzix embossing folder, and after I smeared
Distress Oxide over them, using my finger, and 3 different Oxides (see below)


The leaves were painted with the same paint and Oxides, and the tiniest fairy , and bird too.
Along the lower edge I added Texture paste , mixed with green paint , through the Dinky Stencil : Leaves , to add a feeling of fallen leaves . When dry I smeared a bit of Vintage photo onto them here and there.


Lynne`s new beautiful Affirmation , from Set 6 was stamped onto a piece of old book page.
Around the panel I gave the frame a little Vintage Photo, too, and then adhered some vintage lace died with Infusions, and Teal Multi Surface Paint, both on top and button to the panel, giving an idea of clouds and green filed. 


All the bits were adhered with All Purpose Craft Adhesive ,  I created details with a black Fin e Liner, and a white Posca pen .
With the Metallic Paint Pearl I also gave a little shine to the flowers , the bird and the fairy wings .
Looking at my work table, just in front of me were some Hot Glue Gun "pearls" from an earlier work, and they fitted as little decoration for the flowers after having been painted, too .
The last thing to do, was adding water to White paint, and by "hitting " the pen carefully ,over the panel, making  a little snowfall !!

This is my try - I really hope you also want to give this great challenge a try, as we all love flowers, Don`t we !!!!!!

The Challenge runs for two weeks, so plenty of time,-- and as many of you know , by now, there is a great premium of 20 Pound to use in Laura`s shop, for the winner 
 :


I wish you good luck, and a wonderful weekend !!

Hugs and love Dorthe
