Spring Into fashion at Crafty Individuals

Have you made something for the Crafty Individuals challenge this month? You still have time to enter and if you follow the theme and include one CI product you will be eligible to win a stamp of your choice and you can get 25% off any purchase at the CI on-line shop before the end of the month just for entering.



I made two DT pieces which are on the challenge blog this week along with some fabulous creative makes from some of my teamies.


This is a tag made of craft card and I used CI stamps and background papers along with some other bits and bobs. 


Alongside the tag is a card in similar colours.


This has been designed on a kraft card which has had white acrylic paint dragged over it with a credit card.


Some lace and flowers and collage pieces add the texture.


We would love to see you join us for this challenge and you have till the end of the month to take part.

I am entering these into the Simon Says Stamp and Show 'Colour' challenge this week and Bloggers Challenge 'In Bloom'.

I hope your week is going well.

A gorgeous tag and card, Brenda. I particularly love the lady's dress in white; I can really envisage it as a white linen dress now whereas I have always coloured it in. Beautiful!

Hi Brenda,

Oh, I love both of these tags! Just beautiful - and makes me want Spring to arrive and STAY!

Thanks for visiting me. It was a great day and very interesting to learn about the natural dying process.

Peace,
Kay
