Again another beautiful Tuesday over at Wendys   SIMPLY NEUTRALS BLOG :

This week I want to show you a heart I created for Christmas present for 
some friends, a lovely neutral palette , with old laces, the Madonna
head I made myself , using paper clay, and the rolled paper, is from a
a pastor`s collected sermons ,from 1903 . It was with awe I cut into one of them, to be
reused with joy, to these presents .

The beautiful affirmation is from one of Lynne`s beautiful stamp sets,
available in That`s Crafty !! (link brings you there )

And as Easter is near  I want to show ,this gorgeous cross, which I just received from Kimberly :  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ajoy2bheld

ordered from her web shop,  ---link above !!

Isen`t it beautiful , I so love it and 
Kim`s gorgeous eye for creating with beautiful details!!

Wishing you all a beautiful rest of the week, ---from , today, rainy Bornholm.
But beauty over at Wendy`s  Simply Neutral Tuesday, will 
brighten the grey weather, I know !!

First Wednesday in March, and we are back with a new Challenge:


I hope you agree this is showing, spring already in action :-)

A greyboard tag painted over with diluted gesso, together
with a smaller panel, which I cut the two cornear off, and made
a hole, with my Crop-A-Dile . 
The bigger tag was stenciled in left side !!
When dry, I painted very thinned Lime and White mixed paint
over both tags. 

onto a piece of white cardstock I also painted diluted lime,
and diluted Bright Pink- and after dry, stamped with the butterfly stamp,onto both.
Also a white tissue paper was painted lime, and stamped with the butterfly-
While painting the beautiful bough of greyboard , was also given details with the same
two paints, plus a green. 

And after I used the beautiful scripture stamp over right side , stamped with
Sepia Archival.  and a thinned ink was splashed over the tag , here and there !!
The butterflies were  fussy cut and laid upon each other, the tissue paper one, in the bottom .
Onto the little tag a piece of white lace was adhered, and on top the bough . The butterfly just landed in right corner . A piece of green ribbon , found in my stash ,was tied around both tag `s  holes , and on a rest of pink cardstock , I stamped with one of Lynne`s Affirmations, and smaller tag and words were adhered to the big tag.,  

Please have fun, and play with us !!

Everything is white outside , so much snow, and thought I would 
echo it, with showing this heart , I  created , maybe 4 years ago. 

Almost all in white beautiful old laces , a handmade flower with
added pearls, ,a golden heart, and an altered domino tile.

And this is another little winter heart with a such beautiful girl,
I bought the image on Etsy, back then- but don`t remember where
and added it to my heart :-) . 

Please jump over to Wen`s beautiful blog, to see all the amazing
Neutral photos, also posted this week !!

Thank you dear Wen, also this week, for making blogging a little more fun
and beautiful, holding your lovely party .

I`m sorry being late today but here is my 
number two example, of our Challenge 

Using a tag this time which is painted with the same colors as last time ,
mixed white and black paint, to a greyish tone- and after dry, the so beautiful stencil was used with 
Texture past in left side . 

3 smaller hearts were also painted grey, and after dry stamped with the
texture script stamp  and button stamp.
On the right side of the tag I adhered a piece of corrugated cardboard and on top a piece 
of painted lace.

Hearts , the kids and another scrap of lace were 
all adhered to the tag. 

This is another take, on our : I HEART YOU - and you can see 
many more in the other DT members blogs .

Hugs and love
