Hello Again!

Trudi back with you all today.  I just love the new Mini Theme Steamworks and Dapper papers.  The colours of both these ranges coordinate beautifully in the creation of the following tag:
Ruby RockIt! Products:
Bella! Steamworks SKS99 Odds & Ends, Bella! Dapper DPR76 Dapper
Other:
Packaging (for tag bag), Chipboard Stars, Metal Embellishments, White paint, Embossing Powder

The base of the tag was created from some packaging which I covered with Dapper Imprint.

For embellishing, I worked with both sides from Steamworks Odds & Ends.

I layered trimmed sections and added fussy cut elements

Rolling the top hat element creates a nice curved effect.  

Thanks so much for dropping by,

 Today I am sharing a project created with the new Bella! Glitzy Gold Paperz, a touch of Bella! Dream and Botanical.
Distress Inks are a fun way of adding a some background colour magic - Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers & Wilted Violet were added to the Glitzy Gold Fish Scales background paper:     
Ruby Rock-It! Products:

Distress Ink - Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers & Wilted Violet
Crafters Choice Bling
Other:
Messy Mat (or plastic), Water Spritzer, Die Cut Butterfly, Pip Berry Vine & Flowers

To create the water colour background:

Swipe ink onto a messy mat (I used the plastic bag that the Glitzy Paper came in) and spritz with water:

Place paper glitter side down on top of the inks and swirl the paper in a clockwise motion.  Lift paper off, turn over and you will have a effect like this: 
Wipe off ink residue from messy mat with paper towel and repeat the process: 
 Allow to dry and then add embellishments.
Create a cluster with a large die cut butterfly, fussy cut elements from Botanical Montage Paper and flowers: 
Slip the photo under the cluster arrangement and add more flowers and fussy cut elements  along the photo edge. 
Twist the pip berry vine into a circular frame and pop under top left hand photo corner. 
 Tuck under photo edges bling flourishes (still attached to clear acetate but trimmed).
 Add fussy cut trimmed sentiments from Dream Cut Outs paper.
