JFF challenge, it has been non stop this last week for me, The Diamond (GLH) has been in hospital for surgery which didn't go to plan so he will have a return visit at some point in the near future. I did pamper him though. Luckily I eventually snatched a couple of hours to take part in the last week of the first month "wings". This week it is "angel wings". I must admit I did find this quite tricky not sure why maybe because of my full on week. I chose a tag this week and went for the ethereal feel. So it has been inked with TH broken china and sugar spun stamped music notes with sepia and gave the whole tag a pearlised cosmic shimmer wash. The smaller tags are inked with TH sugar spun and stamped the "lil angels" images and again the pearlised shimmer wash. The wings and letters I made by colouring with gel pens for a strong effect. Have loved the first month with JFF the DT are a very talented bunch, and the participants have surpassed themselves. I am amazed at the variety of techniques used.Keep it up, really looking forward to more. Thanks for stopping by XOXO

This is my little hanging effort for the 2nd week of "Wings" over at JFF challenge blog. This week is "Time Flies" and indeed it does. I interrupted this as the seasons flying by so my clock has something for every season inside. The back ground is inked with colours that I think suit the season and the clocks are stamped over in grey. The inner clock is again inked with seasonal shades and seasonal images stamped. The numbers are rub on and I painted the wings in pearlised silkies and stamped with a swirls. I added a button for interest and the thread are the hands. The background is also painted in glitter glaze (I do like a bit of sparkle). I think I might try and be brave and enter this for the swap (and fingers crossed I don't disappoint anyone as my 11 went wonky). I had planned to tidy the garden today but it is too cold and wet. So off to my craft room to alter a frame LOL. Hugz all XX. Thanks for stopping by.

Well this is the first challenge for the newest challenge blog Just for Fun the challenge is weekly with a monthly theme. The theme of the month is wings and for this week "heartfelt wings" well with valentines in the air I decided to make a little hanging for the Diamond. I inked the heart shape with barn door and worn lipstick, stamped with a lovely butterfly swirl and painted on rock candy crackle once dry I used metallic rubs gold and red to get into the crackle. The wings I painted black and embossed in silver. the background I painted in off white and rubbed in inka gold and stamped text. Added a sparkle brad and lace.One of the criteria of the challenge is to "Have fun and get messy" I did both. XOXO I am pleased as The diamond likes it. Enjoy your week.
