Be my friend - Mixed media tag by Susanne

Hi there!

Susanne here today with a mixed media tag. I am so in love with our new Mama Owl stamp. Isn't this the cutest owl in the world?

I started with a Brusho background and added acrylic paint to the left and right side of my tag. I stamped some texture with the Art Defined stamp and stamps from the Mama Owl set. I added some black splatters for more interest.
Finally I adhered the owl with 3d foam pads and the sentiment.
You will find a step by step tutorial here where I used nearly the same techniques.

Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.

Blue Cat With Ribbon Flowers - A Card

Hello.  Gail from the design team here with Curious Cat and some ribbons.  Have you seen the new theme challenge?  Ribbons or twine or thread.  I thought about a victorian ribbon design sewing kit I bought a long long long time ago.  About time I used it I suppose!  
Here's the result........ 

Isn't that cat just adorable???   

I started by colouring a piece of fabric with brusho's.  I stamped and embossed Curious Cat on card and coloured him with Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress inks.  I added some highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut him.  

I made the flowers by cutting short pieces of ribbon and gathering them with a running stitch.  5 pieces for the flower and one piece in yellow for the centre.  I used three different shades of purple for my flowers.  

I mounted the fabric in an aperture card and added the cat.  Sweet!  

I hope you get out your ribbon or twine or thread and join the challenge.  Don't forget the stamping!  You don't have to use Rubber Dance stamps to enter the challenge, but we always love it when you do.  Hugz
