Blue...

... not me this time... I am not blue, actually, I am a rather fetching shade of red, still getting over the 20mins spent in the sunshine the other day, oh fair English peach that I am lol Today is another tag, this time a celebration of blue. More of that in a mo because... I am getting excited! Oh yesh, it is June, which can only mean one thing... tis birthday time... very soon... am counting the days!


Anyways, the blue tag; coloured with Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky and a smidge of Picket Fence thrown in for goodly measures. The rosette was stamped with Picket Fence to make a resist and then blended over with Chipped Sapphire. The little flower trim was coloured with a few blue tones and dabbed so the colours were a bit lighter. A few bits and bobs of Idea-ology finish off the decorations on the tag.


Right then.. speed blogging again today because I have a job to do: I have been putting this off for the last week and I can take no more of this mess. The Room of Stash is actually more like the Storeroom of Stash... I need to sort out all these storage boxes of samples and products and stuff... maybe then I can do a splish of inking and make my Sunday Stamper entry for this next week. Wish me luck, I may be gone some time!! Mind you, those cobwebs still need defuzzing and the ironing pile is teetering.. so perhaps I should get those done first... lol Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Love the blue - reminds me of pictures of 'the Med'. Your rosette is corking too.
Good luck with the cleaning - I've come home from work to half-done hoovering - Woopee!
Hugs, Buttons x

Hey Hels. I hope that fetching shade of red doesn't mean "lobster red" from the sun. :) We blonds have to watch that sort of thing, you know. :) Love your blue tag! Love your beautiful rosette with the little pins sticking out of it. Your stamping looks fab against the so typically Tim technique background. <3 Candy

Hi Hels

I love the colours here. I've never seen chipped sapphire before and it is gorgeous - might have to treat myself.

'Blue is a colour you can feel', so they say, but your tag is more restful and relaxing, I love the chipped sapphire colour and your rosettes are fab. Good luck with the tidying, must get on with mine too........A x

Blue is so my fav colour and TBH this tag has just inspired me to get off my butt and go and make something instead of feeling sorry for myself. So for that alone I salute you.

Love everything about the tag.

PS the glue is now ordered. LOL

Chipped sapphire just added to my 'want' list! Great tag & rosette. Such 'stand out' colours. Don't wear yourself out with the tidying although you may find some long forgotton gems. Sx
