Handmade Embellishments

Another fortnight has flown by us and it's time for another DT piece for the Craft Room.  I really don't envy Esther having to select her top three .... lovely entries!  The new challenge for the Craft Room challenge is:-  "Handmade Embellishments" and the sponsor is really appropriate as it is RareBird who provides great inspiration and products. The lovely Maria has chosen the challenge theme.  She explains the challenge brief a lot better over the challenge blog here.

Here is my contribution to the DT.

I covered card with metal tape, which I then embossed before colouring with a mixture of alcohol inks and stazon.

The cotton reels I painted with gesso, acrylic paint before applying distress inks.  The sentiment which is a Paperartsy stamp inspired the use of flowers and clocks.
I used a Kaisercraft clock stamp on shrink plastic, which I cut into three. I coloured each panel in either pink, blue and brown - to match my flowers before shrinking.  The chain is an old silver necklace which I coloured with a pro-marker.

I would like to enter the following challenges and hope you can join in with us at the Craft Room.

Bye for now, Suzanne

Hi Suzanne, My entry for Craft room challenge is not a fabric collage, i was working on this patchwork bag since january 15. It is all hand sew, even the black flowers! It was just finished when time goes for the new challenge, so i decide to share something different than a card for this time.
Big Hugs
