a card and an altered art challenge

this card has been made for a work friend that gets married in may. Paper used is from my minds eye. The small butterflies were cut from a paper tray ink die and stitched through the middle. The large butterfly is a sizzix die and the flower is from a paper pack of flowers. I have used some Tim holtz tissue tape and lace as a border. Her theme is butterflies and blue for her wedding so that's why i have come up with a vintage shabby look.
Finally a friend that i go to the Bramford crop with set an altered art challenge. She gave each of 3 small jenga pieces. Originally i had it in mind to do a trip tic, but after i painted then with the snowflake fresco paint from paper artsy i decided to attach them together with T/H tissue tape.


I found some old 7 gypsies paper and painted it with the fresco paint and then stamped my image on the top, made a frame from chipboard, painted and then stamped with a text stamp
I set the image in the frame and covered it with beeswax and buffed, small watch parts were added and distress inks and stains to the edges to add splash of colour.

On the back i added distress inks and stains. Stamped a pattern to the edges and stamped my watches on to patterned paper. Adhered to the block, used beeswax to give an opaque finish and watch parts for dimension




the top is again watch parts with small beads placed on the top and wire connecting them together.
