The challenge for this week over on Tilda & Co is hidden secrets so i decided to make an invitation card with a hidden tag as the invitation ( if you get what i mean) i stamped Tilda on white card coloured her in then glued her to the card but only on 3 sides leaving the top open to add my tag and added a couple of butterflies.

Again our great swap host Lesley form Craft Swap has organised our monthly fat page swap this swap does not have a theme but i thought it would be nice to do Easter pages to match the ATC's i done. for those of you that don't know what a fat page is it is a 4" x 4" piece of artwork as much the same as an ATC but a little bigger.

Our lovely swap host Lesley from Craft Swap has been organising the monthly ATC swaps for some time now and this months theme is Easter so i thought i would use my newly acquired House Mouse stamps which i stamped using black stazon and coloured them in with water colour pencils. The idea is to make 3 ATC's send them to Lesley and she then mixes them up and sends 3 back to you but i always make 4 as i like to send 1 to Lesley for herself.

I decided to have a go at the new challenge set over on the Craft Swap Challenge Blog it's called Hidden Depths and this weeks theme is Springtime i used dragonfly peel offs for the outside and inside i stamped my springtime Nellie with black stazon and coloured her in. Something different and i really enjoyed having a go.
The top picture is the card closed and the bottom picture is the card open.
I inked up the tag using Worn lipstick and a red ink it up pad, stamped the geisha lady onto separate card, coloured parts in with gold & red then layered her up with gold and black card, added ribbon and coins

I inked up the tags with dried marigold, faded jeans and milled lavender then stamped them using my flower stamps from a set i had from QVC with black stazon, using a separate piece of card i inked it up with the corresponding colours and used flower peel offs, cut them out and layered them.
