Really, I don't know where the time is going to these days! It's probably got something to do with the fact that we are having quite a lot of time away from home lately - 'hubby-with-no-hobby' wants to be out and about but not on his own (although he has gone into town on an errand today!)Now, this makes me seem ungrateful, as I too love to be out and about, but also love to spend time in my craft room and I'm not good at speed crafting…
That said, this tag for Dragons Dream TIO - 196 - 'Eight' has only taken me an hour and that's including searching for a small playing card! I was determined to play along this time as I do love the challenges set here and the fabulous team inspiration.
The tag was spritzed and then 'Brushoed' with brown and ultramarine.
Stencilled TH clockwork with Aged Mahogany distress (and stamped some random dots too)
Archival Potting Soil to stamp the image three times - once onto dictionary paper, once onto some manilla paper (so that I could cut out the wings and the face) and once onto the tag itself to layer up.I used a Wendy Vecchi text for added background.
The card and ribbon coloured with Faded Jeans and Aged Mahogany.
I hadn't notice the 8 on the front of the dress until I was cutting out the wings.
Now, that is the first change I made to what I thought was going to be straightforward - a show and tell of something I was doing at the weekend.
The second change is about what arrived at lunchtime in the late post
Oh yes, customs opened it alright…including what was inside!
Now I don't know what they thought of this but I gasped at it's beauty!!
Karla has sent me this…not only this, but three of the most beautiful ATC's I've seen..
Wrapped up with a lovely note...
Aren't these fabulous?!! I will e-mail you later Karla but Thank You so much for brightening my day!!
So, that was change two..
Now the reason I am here is to join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T tands for Tuesday
I was going to show you some France photos but I will save those for another time..so what to show you..hold on…here comes change 3……I remembered our new mugs..
The first time we used them we had a 'posh' coffee - ok, it was only one of those packet Mochas but it tasted especially good from our new mugs!! I actually remembered to take a photo!!!
So, off now to get back into my craft room before hubby gets back - I think we may be going out tomorrow!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
