Craft Barn "Alpha/Dictionary" Challenge

The next letter for the Craft Barn challenge is "L". It took me some time to find a word for this, but in the end I went for "Label".

For the background I used a brayer with a Big and Juicy ink pad. Added some texture with my new Indigo Blu texture stamps. Then I stamped, cut out and inked labels from a Lili of the Valley stamp set and attached them on the background with some brads. Finally I added the word definition and fixed it with a label frame. 

Thanks for looking :)

Craft Barn "Alpha/Dictionary" Challenge and Country View Challenges

The 3rd letter for the Craft Barn challenge is "F" and for a twist a heart should be included. 
I had a couple of words, but went for "Fairy" at the end.

For the background I drew a grid of squares and rectangles with a pencil. I used 5 different Distress Inks to colour the section by masking them with Post-its. Then I used the same inks to stamp some textures into the sections. I found a very old fairy stamp, which I stamped with blue VersaFine and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder. Cut the fairy out, coloured the background of the fairy with DI and mounted it on a blue piece of fabric. Glued everything on the background and added the flowers and the heart. I also added a border at the top and bottom of the background with Distress Stickles. Finally I added the dictionary definition in the lower left corner.

I would also like to enter this one in the February challenge over on 
Country View Challenges
Their theme this month is "Make your own background"
