It Has Been A Long Time......

Yikes peeps!

How long since I last posted?! Where has the time got to? I hvaen't been too well :O(( so have been resting up a lot, however, when I have had some spare energy I've made a few bits n bobs and thought it high time I Blog something!

Here is a tag I made using some of the fabulous Studio 490 stamps by Wendy Vecchi ... I was a lucky birthday girl and got three sets so now have another new addiction LOL...just need more of the sets now :O))




To make the tag, I coloured the base with a combination of Juniper and Purple Twilight Adirondack Pigment inks, using Cut n Dry foam to blend the colours. I used some of the background stamps in the 490 sets to create the dappled effect and then stamped some leaves around the edge.




My fave new thing (apart from the 490 stamps) is Grungepaper - I am totally addicted to it and boring old cardstock just ain't doing it for me anymore LOL After colouring the Grungepaper with the Juniper ink, I stamped some of the images and then cut them out, shaped them using my fingers and then attached them to the tag using silicone glue.




I added some little phrases which are also from the 490 sets and attached these with another of my birthday pressies - the new Tiny Attacher from Tim's range of Idea-ology - and then to finish off I stuck some old pearls (which I got in a huge bag of broken chains and beads - don't worry, I haven't attached the family heirlooms!!!) to the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for looking and I promise not to leave it so long next time!! Oh, and BTW, don't you just love the colour combination here? I have always loved the Juniper and Purple combo in the Dabbers, now I have them in the pigment inks there is noooo stopping me!
