Design Team call and other things.

There is a design team call over on the Creative Expressions site but you better be quick as it closes today. I only found it as a couple of the girls on my Make My Monday team have gone for it, so I thought why not give it a go. You have to submit photos of 4 items and one of them is a challenge to make a Calling Card ATC, well never one to back away I gave it a go and here is the result.

I am not sure if the photo is a bit off or not or if its my eyes as it is 02:30 at the moment. (I have found that I just don't sleep in this heat so I might as well do some crafting.) Anyway back to the ATC, as I didn't have a lot of time in which to make it I used a ready made atc from Tims Lost and Found paper stack, I added a strip of tissue tape to the left side to give it a bit more support when I put the brads through. The wording is "I called but you were out" that I stamped on small tags using a studio G alphabet stamp. I then swiped them with vintage photo distress stain and attached to the card. I added a spinner to one of the clock faces and a game piece to another for the time 4:20 do you see that?

Another piece I have got finished this week is the tray that was on my desk at the last WOYWW.

I painted it with gesso then went over with distress stain in vintage photo then distress ink in walnut stain, I then added bits that I had around to fill it. The dress form I had made for something totally different but then never used, the cotton reels and bits in the top left were from the button box that I picked up from a house clearance,  (the scrabble tiles came from there as well, also the thimble that is pewter and the tiles are wood) the small bustier's were also destined for something else but it never happened.

Will have to check these photos again in the morning and might have to retake them using the camera instead of my phone. Hey just noticed I have got my followers back, I have missed you guys.

Ok I think its time for bed now as I am starting to ramble.......

Thanks for reading,
