Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.
Today I am posting about the start of a new challenge at the Crafty Emblies challenge blog and the theme, chosen by our talented teamie Lisa is 'Under the Sea'.
The challenge, run by the Crafty Emblies on-line shop, is also sponsored by Crafty-Emblies and prize on offer to the winner is voucher to spend in the shop to the value of £10.00 !
My DT piece for this challenge is a tag.
I used my Tim Holtz 'Alterations' tag die to cut the shape from some DP with a sea -floor design. This was then adhered to a larger piece of kraft card and this card was trimmed to create a larger tag with rough edges. I adhered some fine blue sand and blue pebbles to the bottom right-hand corner of the tag using Glossy Accents and added some shells between the 'rocks'.
Using Vintage Photo ink I distressed some pieces from an old newspaper with the shipping times and tore and scrunched it to fit the bottom of the tag. I also added a star fish cut from the same DP. Crafty Emblies angel-fish with gems for eyes were then added to the tag. With some bakers twine I made a net to create that 'Under -the-Sea' effect. A shoal of stamped fish and a stamped compass were also added to the top of the tag.
To finish I made a string of three turtles and three green glass beads which was added to some dark blue gross-grain and cream satin ribbon to complete the tag.
Please time to take a look at the Crafty Emblies challenge blog to see the wonderful creations from the DT team and maybe join in with us too.
