Me to you

This is my final 'me to you' which is for Ann. It's a dream box frame which I made from mountboard and covered in tinfoil to try and give it a metal look (what do you think?)

Thanks for your comments

Bloomin' eck this isnt like me!! 2 posts in 1 day, what am I thinking LOL

These pennants are for a swap hosted by Sue on Lots to Do. The theme was distressed so out came my Sir Timness of Holtz crackle paints. For the red one I then stamped a cloth flower with a script stamp and added a piece of stampboard and glued on it a pic of a lady. I then covered some of it with crackel accents. For the orange one I used a 'negative' of some grungeboard and a piece of washed up pottery that I found on a beachcombing session. I then stamped an eye on it and then went round the edges with a gold pen touch pen.

Happy Birthday Hilda!

Now that the day is finally here I can blog the presents I made! I made Hilda a domino book and an altered matchbox doll (cant you tell these are my new obsession!) I just love making them LOL

I hope you enjoy them Hilda

Bottle top doll!

UK Stampers forum is hosting an altered art swap using bottle caps. The idea is to decorate one or more bottletop and include it in a piece of work of your choice, so here is mine. She has a bottle top face and a body made from a matchbox. I opened out the matchbox and covered it with paper. The wings I made from mountboard and a stencil from a leftover section of grungeboard, which I inked up and stamped and embossed them using a script stamp. Her legs are stamped from a zettiology (?) set of stamps. Sorry the pics are a bit naff!
