Use Something Metal

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Today I'm posting pictures of the tag which I made for the new challenge at the Israeli blog "Going out of Lines". The theme was "Use something metal". I've embellished my tag with two metal elements by Tim Holtz (a spinner from a set called METAL GAME SPINNERS and a pen nib from this set):

I covered the tag with Gesso and used a Crafter's Workshop stencil "Numbers". Then I added a little bit of color to it with Ranger Distress Stains (scattered straw, shaded lilac, dusty concord). After that I added just a bit of antique bronze & covered the edges with Viva Decor Crackle Paint. Then distressed the edges of the tag with the Vintage Photo and a bit of Walnut Stain.  Just to add more of the texture & shimmer I sprayed the whole tag with the Goosebumps. The stamp I used for the background is by Hero Arts "Old French Writing". The doily is by Dovercraft. I've also used the Tim Holtz die Styled Lables and embossed it with the  Cuttlebug "Kassies Brocade" embossing folder on Core'dinations cardstock, covered it with Distress Crackle paint Tattered Rose, and sanded with the Sanding Block.
The ribbons are colored with the Heidi Swapp Color Shines (Amethyst and Coral).
The feather is cut with the Tim Holtz die called "Writing Desk".

It was something VERY different from what I'm usually creating and I needed it for a slight change :)

Alter Something @ LLLC Friday Inspiration

Hello dear friends and by-chance visitors :)

It's Friday and it's time for another LLLC project. Today's theme is "Alter Something". I chose a small box for this purpose, and so that it won't be empty created a tiny mini album (3" X 2.5"):

This is how the box looked like before its transformation :)

And these are the "after"-pictures:

The stamp I used is called "Mod Marci", and is available here

Here are the Copics I used for coloring her:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E0000, R22, R20
Hair: E18, E15, E13, E11
Hat + b: R22, R21, R20, R11
Guitar: E37, E35, E33, E30 + W5, W3, W1
Shirt + Boots: R89, R85, R83, R81
Jacket: YR23, YR21, YR20

The mini album can hold up to 10 small photos, and in each of the pages there's a tiny tag for journaling and notes:

It fits perfectly inside the box:

I made a use of several dies by LLLC while completing this project:

Open Leaf Flourish -
Bird Cage -
Filigree Corner -
