Gift tag with sparkling bottle

 Today isn't as scorching so a good day to get things done indoors, like sitting at the crafting table 😉

I made a gift tag, using an image from Chocolate Baroque. I fussy cut it and placed it on the tag using foam tape to get some extra dimension. I coloured the image with distress inks mixed with perfect pearls to get the shine, it's an effect I really like.

As you like it challenge - favourite way of stitching (I love to doodle stitching around the card edge to make it pop. And the hand drawn stitches makes it look so authentic)

Rustic male card

 Today I used some design paper from Chocolate Baroque's black and white series and inked it with distress inks in blue and yellow. Same distress ink is used on the oval backing of the sentiment and then I just added the die cut sentiment and some baker's twine. The design paper is very thin and delicate but holds ink really well, making it perfect for colouring to needs and desire.

Challenges:

Allsorts - design paper

Polkadoodles - Anything goes

Gem of a challenge - Anything goes

Crafter's Castle - anything goes

Cute card Thursday - anything goes

Sunny slimline card

 I decided to try the format slimline card again, using the stamp set Wild Meadow from Chocolate baroque. The colours give the illusion of a summer evening sun - or that is the intention any way. I'm really hoping those warm summer evenings will come soon cause it's been rather cold and rainy for a while now. 

Challenges:
Incy wincy - Slimline card
Try it on Tuesday - Here comes summer
Little red wagon - walking on sunshine
Allsorts - anything goes
Fab´n´Funky - anything goes

Dress remake

 I bought a dress last year at the H&M sale, loved the fabric but the model wasn't (and still isn't) very flattering on me.


So I cut of the skirt, adjusted the waist line and used a free romper pattern I found online to remake the skirt to a pant bottom. I have never been a fan of the spaghetti straps so I cut them off and used a piece of the fabric to make new, wider straps.

Now, this is more me! 

The wide legs are super comfy, and I don't have to worry about wind or chafing :)


Here is the free romper pattern:
