Two Projects

I have two projects to share today. It's so rare that I get into the craft room during the week. It's been a good evening - had a rousing chorus of "Down by the Bay" with Peanut, too :)

My first project is a tag. I've never really tried one in an altered art style. I used an image from a chocolate bar I brought back from Paris for a friend (he thoughtfully returned the box back to me). I added some chipboard that my sister gave me for Christmas (it's a lovely pack, so I'll be using it often). I added ribbon and a flower.

I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
1. Altered Art Challenge at OWSE Forum - tag + metal - I forgot the metal, so I'll just show my tag there...
2. Craft Your Passion #40 - tie one on
3. Top Tip Tuesday #17 - anything goes

My next project uses the Crafter's Companion Christmas Card magazine and freebies. I used a Popcorn the Bear stamp and colored it with Copics. I followed Suzanne Dean's video on YouTube to get started coloring fur. The papers and sentiment are from the same kit. I added ribbon and flowers from my stash to finish the card.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. CMC Copic Challenge - coloring fur
2. Simon Says Stamp - sketch time

Happy Crafting!

Both beautiful projects.
How thoughtful of your friend to return the empty box to you - that's the sort of friend I like too ;)
