recycled Tin


I am back after a mini vacation.. Went to attend my cousin's wedding and had a blast.. it was so much fun catching up with all my cousins after ages..

Back to work for me now.. So our second challenge at color conceptions is all about recycling and using washi tape.. Now you guys know how much I love my washi tape and Priya send me some cool neon colors which I went ga-ga over..

I recycled a barley seeds tin into a trinket holder for the many tiny hair accessories my niece seems to have... So take a look...

the bloom was a cream colored itsy bitsy flower which I have turned into a sparkly pink using the memento fireworks spray.. They are so awesome with a subtle sheen to them... This is the front...

the backside

There is still time to play along with the second challenge at color conceptions. For details click here.

Thanks so much for dropping by... Have a great week...

Fridge Magnets


Back with another post.. Sharing my magnets which I made for the fridge magnet swap at Swap Central... My very first attempt and it was good fun...

Magnets are a great way to personalize gifts and send... Very versatile and something really long lasting..

I concentrated mainly on stamping well for the simple reason I had lack of time and I was really pushing it..

This is a trellis I tries.. I have seen Hussena do some of the most gorgeous trellis cards ever and really really neat.. I still have to work on the neatness...

Simple distressing and voila I am done.. This is one of my favorites because of the brightness... Cheers me up no end..

Some pattern paper and and some die-cuts and I am done...

Tried the double emboss resist technique.. it did not quite come out the way it was supposed to but still looks cool...

Simple stamping..

 Simple start burst

Some embossing and some sanding and a giant bloom...

Some tone on tone stamping...

Another double emboss resist attempt but love the grainy look of this one...

Water color pencil colored background...

Thanks for dropping by... Will see you soon with another post...
