New CraftyMess Challenge Blog Challenge

Today See's the launch of a brand new CraftyMess Challenge blog challenge with the theme of 'Words Only'.

I am lucky enough to be a Design Team member on this amazing blog.


For this card I used an 8x8 stepper card. I stamped over the front with a limited edition summer purple Tim Holtz distress ink.
The sentiment was printed off a sentiments CD I have and matted and layered it on different purple card including glitter and pearl card.
I made all the flowers and swirls etc out of the same card used to layer the sentiment. The main two flowers are made out of paper inked with the same purple as the stamped images on the card base.
I finished the card off with hat pins and card candi.


This tag was a little added extra that I made for the 'words only' challenge. I used a white luggage tag and used various Tim Holtz distressed ink and ripped card to make the back ground.
I then stamped the butterfly with distress ink and coloured it with a water brush.
the sentiment was stamped and then embossed with black embossing powder.
Once all the ink was dried I added swirls and highlights with glitter pen and added small flat back gems to the butterfly and the added glittered swirls at the bottom.



I would love it if you would take a look at the CraftyMess challenge blog and join in the challenge yourself. There is a prize from Crimson Cloud up for grabs, so well worth a look see :D
