Friendship Tag

I love this stamp and when I saw the theme over at Try It On Tuesday which is "Friendship" it was the perfect excuse to use it again.


I created the the tag using a piece of art card that I had used to try out some paints...I went over the Tag with some background stamps.
I layer up some hessian, cheesecloth and corrugated card, adhered it all to the tag then whipped around one end with some raffia.
I stamped and painted the image and mounted that on some scrap card that had been trimmed off from another project....to finish I added a few daisies.

ooh la la..Paris

It's so nice being back in blogland, after being without my laptop for a while...I couldn't do the same things on my tablet, so just had to be patient while my computer guy worked his magic.
To be honest I thought I would lose a lot of my data and files etc, but he saved everything..however now I am searching as it has all been stored in different places, my photos files for crafting have been changed too.
I created a tag for the challenge over at Tag Tuesday the theme there is Paris


 I used backing paper for the background on my tag and then stamped the post mark on it, I also stamped the ooh la la script.
The couple is a fab stamp that I have had for ages..the stamp has part of a building in front of the lady, but I trimmed that away, I coloured her scarf and then added the image to the tag.
To finish I used cream lace and a metal flower embellishment.

Steampunk Style Tag for MMM.....

Check out this months challenge over at
More Mixed Media
Their challenge is always Anything Goes and if you want to you can also use their colour option and this month the colour is Brown
My project this month as a member of the design team is a Steampunk style Tag...using brown ink.


I created the base of my tag using distress inks and a selection of stamps. I stamped the image of the man and heated embossed the image on some spare card..lightly coloured it then cut it out and added him to my tag.
I coloured some light weight card that I dry embossed with a cogs folder, coloured that with distress ink and tore off a strip and added it under the image. I also stamped and added a label.
To finish the tag I added the cogs and lens and then the chain with the clock.

Do pop over and take a look at the challenge as well as the designs team projects...if you enter the challenge you have the chance of some fabulous papers to choose from for your prize should you win...

Artist Trading Block & Drift Wood

Septembers Challenge has just started over at
  Rhedd's Creative Spirit
I was wondering how I could use up some driftwood and one of my many chunky wooden artist trading blocks for my design team project....and this is what I came up with....



I have prepared a picture tutorial that will be posted to Rhedd's Creative Spirit on 15th October, so I do hope you will drop by and take a look...

Painted Dress Form.

Pop on over to Altered Eclectics...they have just launched their challenge for September.
My design team project for them this month is an Altered Dress form.




The dress form was given to me by my best friend, she said I would know what to do with it..lol.
I gessoed the form then gave it 2 coats of Docrafts Pistachio acrylic paint.
Once dry I dressed it and then created some associated items to add to the base..
Hope to see you over at the challenge...it's HERE

Back to School Tag

I do like to enter the challenges over at 
Tag Tuesday whenever time allows.
This fortnight their them is "Back To School"....after a rummage in my stash the most I would come up with was a few school documents which I cut out from some backing papers.


The stamp of the little girl is one I picked up in a craft shop sale, I can't remember the maker, but the way she is dressed I thought she would make the perfect school girl...so I painted her in green and yellow so it looks like a school uniform...
The back to school was stamped using small alphabet stamps.
