Oh how I've missed my crafting!

Hi Lovelies! I hope your all starting off 2014 with good health and lots of crafting? As we have been away for 21 days in Canada with our daughter, obviously I didn't do any crafting, I bought a few bits though ;) lol! But I didn't realise how much I missed it until we came back. So I've been busy playing, trying new techniques, catching up with some DT stuff and some fun stuff, here are some of the bits I've made yesterday and today, oh boy have I had fun :D

My first tag, I did a version before Christmas but I didn't have the heatable, mouldable plastic to do the proper one, and now I have! It's a Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 technique and products

My second and fifth are also Tim Holtz techniques from the Creative Chemestry 102 course, it's called "Eroded Metallics" fab technique.

Another TH technique, I die cut the cogs and heat embossed them and inked to make them appear rusty!

This card is a technique on watercolour card I got from Craft Stamper mag, by the very talented Donna Downey!

Very simple technique, stamps are Chocolate Baroque.

Corroded Metallic technique with the heatable mouldable plastic with shimmer film and inked flower.

This is my favourite, I used "Goose Bumps" let it dry, inked with various blue inks, the Birch trees and birds are dies which I cut using linen texture card and coloured using Coloursoft pencils, I added some liquid pearls in a beautiful turquoise colour.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like my creations, sorry there are so many pictures xxx Zoe xxx

Zoe I hope you had a fantastic time with your daughter, I love the photos you have shared.
Your makes are all gorgeous. You are brilliant at both feminine and masculine projects which I know a lot of crafters struggle with. You have a talent with colours.
