TOMIC Challenge # 13 - Back to School + Metal....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a brilliant weekend!

Today is the start of another challenge for TOMIC!

This week's theme is Back to School + Metal. Here is the bookmark I have made for this week's challenge.


I have coloured my Magnolia Tilda with distress ink pads.
I have layered my card with layers of metallic gold card. The word School are Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters. Which I have covered with crackle paint and distressed with walnut stain.
The large star is Quickutz as is the photo corner. The smaller stars are punched. 
I have added Star Dust stickle glue and Clear Sakura glitter pen.

Here is the back of my bookmark.


The rub on letters are Doodlebug.


The teeny sentiment is a Tim Holtz doodaa.

I am also entering my bookmark into Allsorts Challenge - Back to School

Thank you so much for visiting with me. 
A big thank you for all of your comments they mean so much to me and I really appreciate you taking the time to say hello!

love

TOMIC Challenge # 12 - MagnoliaInk Birthday.......

Hello,

I hope you are all well and are lovely and rested from your weekend activities.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at TOMIC. We are having a special celebration challenge this week! 
We are celebrating the birthday of our very own Magnolia Magazine MagnoliaInk!
So the theme of our TOMIC challenge this week is Recycling as MagnoliaInk is made from recycled paper.
There will be a extra special prize for the lucky winner from Magnolia to celebrate the birthday of MagnoliaInk so it would be wonderful if you would join us in our special celebration!

Here is my card and how I made it using  my recycled items.


I have coloured my Magnolia Tilda with distress ink pads onto watercolour paper.I have distressed everything with walnut stain and have added stickles for some sparkle.
The doily is die cut using a Magnolia Doohickey die as is the border.
I have pin pricked the edge of my image.


Here is the book that I have recycled. I have torn pages out and distressed them to add to my card.
You can get loads of old books from charity shops which are great to use like this.

I have decorated the inside too.


I have also used recycled items inside. 


Here are tags that I saved as I thought I could use them in something. So they were perfect for this TOMIC challenge.


Here they are recycled. I have covered them with Picket Fence crackle paint. Then I have stamped onto them. Adding stickles and a recycled button from an blouse I threw away.


Here is the right hand inside of my card. 
The hearts are nesties and the flowers EK Success punched.


Thank you so very much for your visit!

This card will be available on Ebay later if you are interested.

Please do go and visit my teamies to see their incredibly amazing creations!

Take care and if you would like to join us in this week's TOMIC's challenge we will be so thrilled!

love
