Do pop over to Tag Tuesday  and check out this fortnights challenge.
Teamie Michele has chosen a fab theme..Faces.
My Tag has oxide inks for the background colour...I then stamped over that with a collage stamp by Kaiserkraft.

These lovely ladies were from a free download that I have had for ages, not even sure where I got them from, but they were definitely free.
I cut them out and slightly overlapped them on the tag.
I felt the tag was lacking, so I added some more stamped images in black, these were from a set by Inkylicious.
You can find our challenge here at Tag Tuesday.

Anything Industrial

It's my turn to host this fortnights challenge over at Tag Tuesday...and my theme is Anything Industrial.
I like anything that relates to Industrial themes, for me it is a predominately male theme, so it's nice to throw something different in to the mix occasionally.
Think Steampunk,Railways,Buildings,Machines etc.
I do hope my tags will inspire you enough to pop over and join in with our challenge.

My 2nd tag was inspired by the iconic photo of the workers sat high up on the steel girders of a skyscraper many moons ago in the USA.
I was so pleased to be able to use the "row of men" stamp, I've had it for ages,but I never used it until now.
Hope to see you at Tag Tuesday....x

Birds & Nests

Just dropping in to share my Tag for Tag Tuesday's Challenge.
The theme was chosen by blog owner Valerie, you must pop over and check out her fab tags.
I'm really late adding my tag this fortnight, life gets in the way of crafting sometimes doesn't it..still as they say, better late than

I started with a white die cut tag, that I distressed with inks, then stamped the image. I shaded it with pens and added the word, which is a rub on.
To finish I added a few gems.

Pretty Yellow.....

Time again for another fab challenge over at More Mixed always there is an option with the challenge and this time the option is Yellow.
To be fair, it's one of my favourite colours, but I never seem to craft well using

My background for this tag was created using oxide inks and then I built up the background using a script and dot stamps.
I added a yellow bird stamp, some bunting and flowers..maybe the flowers are a bit much, looking now I wish I had used smaller flowers. I inked and stamped over a die cut butterfly and added a filigree brass one over the top adding a pearl for decor. The cord is a kind of shiny pale green, I thought it looked nice under the flowers.
Do pop over and join in with our challenge...there are some fab digi papers to be won, as well as a badge for your blog...
