Pretty In Pink...

...I was having a good old rummage yesterday through the mahooosive stash of paper flowers that I have... erm... collected over the years. To my surprise, I have more than I thought... all different colours, sizes, styles... and... I felt the urge to play... so I did! Following on with the stylee that I have been doing this week, I bobbed some diecut papery bits onto a tag and added smidges of texture paste and then Gesso'd right over the top.


Once it was all nice and dry, I used Clam Shell Eco Paint and Shell Pink and Cranberry Dabbers to add some colour to the base. Out came the Stabilo All pencil again... I need another one cos this one is getting a bit stumpy. The beauty of the all is that is literally will go on to all surfaces... plastic, glass, wood, paper - even non stick craft sheets! Anyways, when you add water to the pencil lines, you can blend it out... which is what I like to do with the raised bits on the base bit of the tag.


Finally I went a bit bonkers with the flowers... well, they need using up, they have been neglected for waaaay too long. So long in fact, I remember hoarding them when I went through my "cute" phase of card making which has to be 137 years ago now. Check out the ickle buttons... they are brand new from a new company called Crafty Emblies... HERE is the website... do check 'em out, they have some gorgeous little wooden buttons, trinkets and charms... even masks!


Right, I shall love ya and leaves ya, I need an early night so I am scheduling this post to publish ... I am at Busy Bee Crafts in Sheffield today... an instore demo day... so if you are in the area, it would be grand to see you. Ooh and don't forget that there's a brand new Sunday Stamper theme tomorrow... I have been positively angelic this week and have my entry all ready, made and... scheduled!!! *polishes organizational halo* Thanks for looking... stay dry!!! TTFN
