Christmas in July????

Well, Pinky has really, well almost, caught me out with her theme at Tag Tuesday..but lucky for me I have a couple of Christmas Stamps in the drawer where I keep my Artistic Outpost Stamps.
I rarely make cards so most of my christmas stash is stacked away in the cupboard under the stairs. I really must sort through them one day..but not today though,lol.
So Christmas is the theme over at Tag Tuesday...any shape or style of tag and any medium you choose, so long as its a Tag.

My tag was die cut from some spare off cuts of paint splodged art paper, not that you can see much of it as I overlaid that with corrugated card that I gessoed. The image was stamped on spare card which I then added colour to, then layered the image up with bits of materials from my stash.
Do pop along and visit us if you can..we love to see your creations and of course leave some love on your blog...x

Another "Sea" Tag

Good Morning from a not so sunny place in Devon, in the UK..still warm, but dull, the sun desperately trying to shine.
I was creating something for another blog where I am on the design team and my mind wandered off course for a while and I ended up making another Sea Tag for Tag Tuesday.

This sweet stamp is by Artistic Outpost/Our Daily Bread Designs and I have had it a while now.
How many of us remember listening the the "Sea" through the shells as a child...I know I do.
Hope you can find time to join us over at Tag Tuesday..there is still a week left, so plenty of time to join in.

The Sea

Hello Everyone...due to a  recent bereavement I've not been blogging regularly, but now I am doing my best to keep crafting more regularly..time, it all takes time doesn't it.
So here is what I have bought for you Sea themed tags for Tag Tuesday.
I love this theme, there is so much scope to create.
I am very fortunate to live close to the sea and whether it's calm or rough I do get a calmness from it, in the rough weather you can actually taste the saltiness from the sea..I love it.
My background of my first tag was created using distress inks using brushes.
The images are stamped from stamps by Crafty Individuals.

I used some stickles across the water and the area around the lady's legs to add sparkle to the water.

My 2nd tag was created using oxide inks on the background, them using this fab stamp from Impression Obsession. I stamped the shells on some off cut card from the card I  made the tag from, then added stickles to give the shells highlights.

I hope you will come and join us here at TAG TUESDAY with this fortnights challenge..I shall look forward to seeing you and visiting your blogs....x

I can't believe how quickly the last couple of weeks have gone by. I seem to be constantly busy doing nothing..crazy or what.
The challenge over at Tag Tuesday still has a few days left to run and the theme is "Put a Sentiment on it"
I had already made my Tag for this challenge, being on the design team, we know the  themes in advance, so I was able to get ahead.
I so love this little girl dancing, so decided to use her on my Tag.

I used oxide inks for the background and then stamped some images before adding the girl.Finally adding a hand written quote.
