- Hi, Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting. I'm Carol, married to Bill, with two children. I love to dabble in all types of crafty pursuits and enjoy nothing more than attending workshops and learning new techniques, which I then try to reproduce at home....sometimes with success!!!

Believe it or not this pretty wall hanging for my sister began life as a Guiness beermat from St. Patrick's Day. I made it a few days ago but have only now managed to put it on. She already had it on the wall so today I borrowed it to put on the blog. Hence the blu tack on the next shot.
I covered the entire front with some pale pink paper and sanded all the sides back for a better finish. The lace at the top is a B line desin called lace duo and I love it it looks almost real! The lower section was again stamped with a B Line stamp....called Black Mesh. I punched 2 holes and inserted eyelets using the cropodile, inserted jump rings and a little chain, which isn't in the picture!! The flower and butterfly were coloured with Dusky Concord Distress ink and then overstamped using Studio 490 All About Art Stamp.
I added some adhesive ribbon tape in a lacy pattern where the stamped images of the background met and then added the TimHoltz plaque with the word play underneath. I filled this with crackle glaze.
Glossy accents was used to stick everything on and the faux gems added.
My sister loves it and hope you have enjoyed looking too.
