What's your Favourite Theme?

 Hello Everyone, time again for another challenge over at Tag Tuesday and it is my turn to host.

I have chosen the theme and my favourite is Vintage.

I know we all have different favourites, but I think I have always had a leaning towards the Vintage Style.

So I have created 3 different Vintage Tags in the hope you will join us at Tag Tuesday.

I am sure a lot of us will remember this movie "Casablanca" starring Humphry Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. I remember watching it with my parents, many moons ago!
The stamps are by Oxford Impressions.

My 2nd Tag features a Gibson Girl, she is one of my favourite stamps to use.
( The Gibson Girl was the personification of the feminine ideal of physical attractiveness as portrayed by the pen-and-ink illustrations of artist Charles Dana Gibson during a 20-year period that spanned the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the United States.[1] The artist saw his creation as representing the composite of "thousands of American girls".)

This stamp was created using a set of Artistic Outpost Stamps.

Do pop over to Tag Tuesday and join us if you can.

One for the Birds

 Birds is the theme for this fortnights challenge over at Tag Tuesday.

The theme was chosen by Valerie.

I don't use birds that often in my art, yet I have several stamps and saved images.

I have used this set of stamps from Crafty Individuals on a tag that I coloured with distress ink.

I just highlighted the cage and birds with water colour pencils.

Do pop over and join us if you can, any sized tag and can be any format, just so long as it is a tag.

The theme this month is Spring.

Already a lot of spring flowers are opening up after their winters rest, some trees too are in bloom, such a pretty time of the year. All we need now is for the weather to warm up.

Here is my Spring Atc...

I chose a Hyacinth Flower with a Spring  verse for my Atc, I actually do have a couple in pots in my kitchen, the buds are just coming through.

Things with Wings

 Hello, I'm back, this time with my Tags for Tag Tuesday

I am hosting their challenge starting today, for the next 2 weeks.

My theme is Things with Wings, so plenty of scope, so many things have wings,lol.

My first tag I made by covering the base tag with some paper that I boiled with some leaves. I love the design that the leaves left, some areas are better than others, but I thought for the butterflies it would make a good background.
I stamped the images and also stamped the butterflies separately so I could layer them up.
I coloured them using my trusty old whisper pens!

My 2nd Tag I went with an oval shape, which suited the image of the birds better.
For this tag I coloured the image using distress inks and a bit of water on a saucer.
I was pleased with the results.
Do pop over to Tag Tuesday and join in with our challenge, would love to see you there.

 Good Morning Every, I hope you are all keeping well, wherever you are in the world.

Christmas and the New Year are always special times of the year, but I do like to get back to normality pretty quickly,lol.

Today sees the start of the challenges at Atcs with a Heart for 2023.

So for January the theme is Rainbow/ Rainbow Colours.

Here is my Atc ( Artist Trading Card )

For my Atc, I used distress inks to colour the background using Rainbow Colours.

Then I stamped over with a grungy nautical stamp.

I hope  you like it and it inspires you to join us in our challenge this month.
