Spring shabbies...

   Just a  few little projects tonight.  I wanted to share my altered bunny plaque with you...I need to do more of these.  I use to make altered plaques way more than cards..and than cards kinda captured  my heart..and well you know how that goes.  It is fun because they are generally larger which means possiblilities of more embellies and they are sturdier for heavier adornments.  Just so many projects and so little time.  The second project I used my mini tags again....doubled  them up and sooo gonna do that again.  Anything mini seems to steal my heart.  The image is from Crafty Secrets of course.   The last is another card...with another crafty secrets image.  It doesn't seem like lavender or purple are that popular right now...but I love it at Spring time..especially paired with a fresh green color.  Used a couple of antique faux rhinestone buttons from my stash because that angel image is worthy of it.  I love the serene vintage look to her.  I like to add chipboard sometimes to the back of my images.  It adds depth to the project and I like to distress around the edges and wear it away a bit and than ink.  I really like the appearance it gives.  Well that is it for me today.  I feel a bit down in the energy department.  The weather here still hasn't warmed up and I so need it too!  Hope you all have enjoyed your tuesdays!   Atleast it isn't monday anymore ey??   hugs, cherry
