Altered matchbox

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place!

Winter is here in my little corner of the world and of course that means snuggling up in the warm with my crafting supplies.

I have started a swap group with altered projects and ATCS if you would like to join in hop on over to 
Mystical touch on Facebook (Nz and Au only)

I just wanted to share what I created for my partner using a matchbox and a few little embellishments, some from a crafting friend (thank you Lainie)

Shabby/Vintage Tag

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place!
It has been a very busy time here on Mystical Touch with classes taking off and I am so very happy being able to create and inspire with a wide group of people..
Classes are from card making, layouts, mini albums, journals and much much more so pop on over for a look and join in!
This weeks project to share with you (found a similar idea on pinterest).....

First I cut out 3 tags...one in craft card, one in peach card and one using Graphic45 Gilded Lily....
then I glued the peach onto the craft card!
Next I stressed up the edges on final tag and rectangle measuring 5 1/2cm x 3 1/2cm from same G45 collection to match everything up and just because I loveeee these designs! 
glue these into place using main photo as a guide...

Frey up a small piece of gauze or muslin to age it and glue this down into place....

cut out four small hearts and stitch down the centre
 then adhere and fold up to give dimension!

Using seam binding or ribbon make a lovely bow (I used my glue gun for this)
glue on and add a pretty embellishment to finish off!

Layer on some matching peach lace and a pretty dangle lace...
I then stamped love, cut out the letters and glued into place...
tied on a pretty trim to the top of tag.....what a lovely idea instead of a card...
I hope you have enjoyed my little project....

Altered Mouse trap......

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place....because I just love creating!
The year is moving way to fast and along with it so many changes....all for the better! 

Over at my page mystical touch on Facebook there is lots of creating going on and also a swap group for New Zealand and Australian crafters to have some fun with like minded people.....

This is one of the swaps I've just completed....

Starting off with gesso all over and then a blast of colour using Lindys....C'est la vie Cerise

Adding Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante in three layers Di stressing the edges to build up a nice aged look then adding Tim Holtz walnut Di stressing ink on all the edges!

I fussy cut a few extras for more depth ..... Then glued on the letters to black card for more strength adding these, a cute little butterfly with glossy accents to highlight!

Adding a charm to the wire of the trap and a metal flower filled with Tim Holtz Distress stickles ...

Finished off with magnets on the back and covered with one layer of matching paper to finish nice and tidy.....to use as a note holder.....or in this case a wee calendar for my swap partner
