Black,White & Red

Listening to the radio this morning and the weather forecast has mentioned that it has been snowing about an hours drive from here..I couldn't believe it as I have the sun shining through my windows. It looks lovely outside to be honest, no sign of any snow here!
So this morning Tag Tuesday have just posted this fortnights challenge.The theme chosen by teamie Wendy is...Black, White and Red
I have kept my tag quite simple, a stamped image on a white tag, adding red for the mouth and edges of the tag.

A little bit of Frost.

It's silly o'clock for me here this morning, I'm not usually up very early, but my sleep pattern is all over the place again, thanks to's an absolute beast at times.
Tag Tuesday have just launched their fortnightly challenge  ( the last 2 weeks have just flown by )
The theme this time around is Winter Scenes and has been chosen by teamie Michele.

I used water colour paint to shade the sky, although the photo really doesn't show it that well. The bad weather here makes everything so dark, almost impossible to get a good light.
I stamped the trees twice by using the masking method, then I coloured the tree trunks and shaded the tufts of grass.
The sentiment was then stamped and once dry I went over with some stickles glitter glue to make it look a bit frosty.
To finish I distressed the edges of the tag with ink.
I hope you can pop along and join in with the challenge, you can find us here at

"Blue" Artist Trading Coins.

Good Morning from a cloudy place in Devon...I do like the cooler months of the year,I just wish they were brighter,lol.
Rain is forecast for next week, so a good excuse to lock myself away in my craft room!
So on to my post for today..
More Mixed Media have just launched their first challenge for 2020.
As always anything mixed media goes, but you have the option of using a colour each month, and  January's colour is BLUE

For my design team project I have created 3 Artist Trading Coins. The background was coloured using oxide inks.

The stamps, from my stash, are all vintage themed and fitted perfectly on the coins.
I coloured the images with water colour pencils.

To finish them I distressed the edges with blue inks and then I sprayed them with a sealer, although the photo doesn't pick up the glossy finish.

Do pop over if you can and join in with our challenge, there is a prize on offer, also badges for other selected entries.
You can find us here at More Mixed Media

I am entering my Atc Coins in to these great challenges....

Let's Celebrate

Tag Tuesday have their first challenge for 2020...and the theme, chosen by our newest design team member Pinky, is Celebrations.
Such a great theme as it covers such a wide variety of celebrations.
For my Tag I have used a little used stamp of mine, I just love the facial expressions,lol.

I decided to paint the images with water colour paints, although the photo doesn't really show the facial and hair colour as it should, poor lighting here on a cloudy day.
I added some glitter to the man's hat and the bobble on the lady's hat and then added the sentiment.
This so reminds me of going to a party a few years ago, when I didn't really want to go,but felt obliged to, needless to say I didn't stay long,lol.
