Recycle at MDUC

 
Hiya I hope you are all OK :D ♥ 
 
It's Re-Cylcle time at MDUC this week.
 
Well I really feel Ive let the team down this week :/
Ive had such a MAD! day to say the least. My project was sooOOooo  last minute!! RUSH RUSH RUSH!!!
 
Thankfully Tilda was already painted as I did that the other night, otherwise I just wouldnt of made it, as each image takes me hours to Watercolour!!
 
 
For my Recycling I used a Recycled Paper Bag and Cola Cans...or in this particular case it was a Jack Daniels and Coke Can .... You can find my earlier Tutorial from a few years ago....HERE
 
 
 
I then coloured them using Alcohol Inks( Yes more alcohol!!!). I tried to colour the feathers as close to Peacock colours as I could.
 I was actually surprised how well the Doohickeys cut through the metal.
For the Butterflies I used Spellbinders

 
Tilda was Sweet Pea Tilda

Papers were also Magnolia
Turquoise Rose Ornament....so LOVING these,,,,also from the new Collection.
 
Also pop over to see who the new DT are at MDUC....you WONT be disappointed Im sure :D
We couldnt just have two!!! When we saw who had entered......We had to have 4!!!!!
Well done ladies
 
Byeeee from me for now

It's bringing back all memories of when went to Disney in Florida.

Midway Reminder at CLP

Morning all :D
Its time for the midway reminder at CLP.

♥ ♥ ♥
Well I think Ive found my favourite from this new collection. Im loving Clown Tilda..she has attitude..
Its not until they are painted up they come alive and I will probably love them all in the end...but for now I love this one
 
Can you see the tiny charm at the top. I Love to stamp....Love this :D
Thankyou Camilla ♥ ♥ ♥ xx

Ive painted her with DI's Reinkers.
Ive used Ivory Frantage and Fragments on the outer edge. Take a look HERE at The Stampman  Jill stocks ALL the colours..Im so loving the Teal...I think that is next on my list :D
 
Ive added my own made clay embellishments.
 
I was looking in one of the cheapy shops the other day that sells allsorts and found some Airdry clay which was half the price of the one Id been using and you got double the amount.. Although it is heavier and not as flexible as the Martha Stewart it will do..

The VIP and the tags at the top are from my ever growing STASH!!
Ribbon and  Lace from the Ribbon Girls
Flowers and tiny berries from Live and Love Crafts
Dies are DooHickey Feathers and Tilda's Lace
