Today is a New Day/Tea ATC

Today for Janis's ATC Birthday Party I made another atc for her collection, using the framed teacup stack by Stamplorations. I colored the cups with a waterbrush and the #5 distress crayons set which are water reactive pigments. I outlined and added some dots on the cups with a white gelly pen. Embellishing with flower, small talk sticker and a tea packet I cut.

Happy Birthday Janis!

Crazy Birds & Dog Double Sided Tag

Crazy Birds

Crazy Birds- Happy Valentines Day

Crazy Dog- Smitten

Crazy Dog- Back of Tag

Sharing a double sided tag I made for a swap I am in.The theme for this swap was to use any of Tim Holtz Crazy Animals for a Spring/Valentine Tag.
 I used a #10 chipboard kraft  tag and covered both sides with designer paper. Instead of leaving the backside of the tag blank I decided to use the Crazy Dog.
 Putting my swapping info on a smaller tag instead, and attaching it to the larger tag.
Crazy birds and dog were colored with distress crayons and a waterbrush. Red stickles were added to hearts and flowers for a little sparkle. Red eyelash yarn for tags holder which I attached the heart locket to.
I'll be shipping out to my swap partner soon. Hope she enjoys it!
