New Challenge number 12

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well, thank you for coming to see me today and I hope you like my post card Tag.

It's a new challenge on the Speed Craft Challenge blog and this week we are being sponsored by 

                                                           The Old Design Shop,Etsy

                                                                

Today's it's the very talented Donna's turn to pick a theme and she chose for us Animals.
take a look at all my teamie's wonderful creations and leave some love for them on their blogs Here.

I dont have have any animals stamps and didn't have time to draw something, so I used a quote about animals. 

As usual for me something had to go wrong and this week it was that I forgot to take a screen shot of when I started. I do like to set good examples, as you see in the rules it clearly states it's a 15 min
challenge and a note of your start and finish time has to mentioned in your post. Ideally we would
like to see the time recorded, a photo of a watch or clock will do.  I so eager to get going but I did Remeber at the end so took a picture of when I finished. 

I'm also entering this card into the Country View Crafts Challenge

I gathered my bits. You can see a page I printed off from our Sponcer's blog which fits my post card tag perfectly and gives the antique look I was hoping to achieve.


I used Matt medium to stick the page onto the card. And then using distress ink in walnut stain blended around the edges. 


DecoArt Media Mist in various colours were added, drips and splats and drops.


While this was drying I coated by butterfly in weathered wood and once dry sprayed with the Media mist in Shimmer White.  I didn't take any more photos until the end because of time. Once the shimmer was dry I rubbed in Antique Cream in Patina and when that was dry rubbed off the excess with a damp cloth.  I then added a touch of Quinacridone Gold to give a rust look. I'm just loving playing with rust at the moment. 


I attached my butterfly and wrote my sentiment in a white Gell Pen

' Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened' this is by Anatole France 

And here is my finished Tag.

 

So come on have a go. Look forward to your entries on the blog. Take care for now
