Sunday Stamper - Week 156 - Red Red Wine...

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Many thanks for all those heavenly pearly sparkly creations last week. This week is an easy theme... and it be... RED. Now, this is another one of my fave songs... I shall stick my neck out and admit that the Neil Diamond version is my fave... but I do love UB40 lots. To join in with the challenge all you need to do is make a little something, it can be anything you fancy, add in the theme and some stamping, leave a comment for me here with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop on over to see you. The theme will be open until 21:00 Saturday June 5th 2011. *akkkk, June already!!!*




So... this week's theme was literally chosen as I was naming my photo's... it was that bad! I spent all evening just faffing with tags and stamps and not really getting anywhere... nothing went right, so I have made a tag using the same design principle as several other tags I have made, funnily enough the old Mojo had gone AWOL then too!! I am hoping he comes home soon, I am lonely here in this Room of Stash - although I have a suspicion that he will be lounging on some sunny beach sipping Mojito's!! Anyways, enough about that old rascal and on with the tag...




I used Traditional Tan paint and a piece of Cut & Dry to make some swishes onto the tag base... zapped with a heat gun and then used a concoction of Fired Brick and Antique Linen Distress Stains to colourize it. I then very lightly spritzed Cranberry Colorwash Spray over the top... I say careful because this stuff is seriously potent and it spreads as soon as water touches it... so... a tip from Ranger U... any Colorwash on your desk etc, wipe the excess up with a dry towel/kitchen roll first... then go in with the babywipe... cos otherwise it spreads big stylee... aha, you see, I did learn a whole load of goodness :O))



The stamping is from the gorgeous new stamps from the Duke of Distress... along with some Idea-ology and a frame cut from the Tag/Frame Alterations... cut in mountboard, covered with Clear Embossing Powder and then two layers of Queen's Gold Embossing Powder - which is THE best gold embossing powder and then I plonked some Black Dabber over the top to age it. Right then... definitely time for bed... I shall be on a hunt in the morning for that scoundrel Mojo, if you see him loitering with intent, just kick his bum and send him back to me please lol Thanks for looking... have a FAB holiday weekend! TTFN

Well as a first time looker Hels I think whatever you were using - creatively - worked beautifully.
Your tags are lovely. As I am playing right now with a gluey drippy techniques and there is lots of red I just might get back to play later.

Your tag is absolutely gorgeous Hels, just loving all the textures on there.

My entry was actually done for last week but I was too late and happily (says she cheering when she saw the title) it fits this one rather well.
