Little jar of flowers.

Hello to you all. As you know I love using jars for my crafts. This is an old spice jar. Not a big fan of dies, but in a previous post love Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. Vintage morning stamps and Majestic Bloom die.
Stamped all the flowers and die cut them. Coloured with distress inks. Stuck two flowers together and put some florist wire in between. Shaped flowers with water and ball tool. Added gems and then used gilding wax over the centres of the flowers.

Just slightly glimmering.

To get the flowers to stand still in the jar was a nightmare. So wrapped them in a piece of burlap and made some kind of a clump then using Pinflair Gel to stick to bottom of jar.
Added piece of burlap ribbon and a button round middle of jar. Hope you like my mini  creation.

Bugs an all.....

Hello all. After having a lovely break in the sun I am back to crafting. Wanted to do something with these bug stamps. Covered a cardboard square with cream acrylic paint.. Used a crackle stamp from Indigo Blu.

Stamped the large bug onto a hessian tag,added bits of corrugated card and string,buttons and broken kebab sticks.

Edged with black and brown inks and of course to use my favourite.Treasure Gold gilding wax. The more I touched this project with my dirty fingers the more it smudged everywhere, but also the more I loved the effect.

Hope you like this one. Let me know what you think..
