Today I am sharing more Crystal Art but this time it's something a little different. It's three of the motifs that launch on the website today, and as you will see they are not just for cardmaking.
For the card I have used a white 7 x7 card blank, a piece of ribbon from my stash (originally part of an item of a piece of jewellery) and mat and layered the cat on a piece of silver matt mirri and black cardstock both from Creative Crafting World. I used the extra crystals to decorate the die cut, (the die Iused was a bootsale find so I don't know the make). The stamp is a freebie from Making Cards magazine and stamped in Jet Black Archival ink.
I wish to enter this cat card into the following challenge;

For the owl I decided to decorate a brown paper bag from Keep on Crafting with a feather stamp (a freebie from a magazine) and Sepia Archival Ink. I have used a wooden disc also from Keep on Crafting to create a tag, the sentiment stamp is from the same free set.
I wish to enter this bag in Penny's Papercrafty Challenge - Anything Goes - http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/welcome-to-pennys-challenge-372.html
For my final design piece I decided to create a scrapbook layout. I took this photo on a trip to Kentwell hall with a friend. I have altered it to show the Peacock as a splash of colour on the black and white in my Craft Artist Software. This is mounted on satin cardstock and then a piece of Coredinations card embossed with the Baroque Frame Day of The Dead folder by Sheena Douglass. I have added the extra gems around the edge. The page is from an 8 x 8 ringbound journal covered with black cardstock. The patterned card is from Trimcraft Laurence Llewelyn Bowen Collection. The peacock itself is stuck to some matt mirri card.
