Fancy A Flutter...

....nooo, not that kind of flutter. No, this week for my DT piece for The Stamp Attic, I have been playing with those lush Indigo Blu stamps again. All the deets and the bigger pics are HERE if you fancy a peek. Here's a little peek at the card.



I got caught up with the whole flutteryness of my card and decided to make a tag to go with it. It is not normal for me to just stick to one colourway but the Distress range has so many gorgeous shades in the green section that I just needed to use them all. Well, I didn't use them all... I used three of them. And because there are loads of blues, reds, browns, oranges etc I can do more cards and tags, same design, different colour.


Anyways. My tag is a super simple one - not a single smidge of metal embellishing going on. I was attempting the whole KISS thing... I think I need to look again at the whole simple thing, I can't help but add ink around the edges and stick something 3d on anything I make. Ho hum, I will make it my mission to be flat...


I have some news too peeps. Not the best news I would like to share but... it can't be helped and hopefully it will turn to good news soon. My shows on Thursday on Create & Craft have been postponed *sad face* but all being well, they will be re-scheduled for very soon. As soon as I know, I will let you know. Thanks for all your lovely comments/messages about the tv planner, I do appreciate your kindness. Right, I shall away... I have decided to use the time I would normally be making samples to spend a bit of time in the Room of Stash playing... I may be some time :O)) Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Hels, I love your tag. Sadly I don't have any Indigo blu stamps. I'm really sad to hear about C&C postponing your shows, especially at this late date. Hugs Rita xx

And I have them all set up on the recorder too! Drat - I hope they will re-schedule soon. Love your tag, great colour. I don't even attempt the 'less is more' as I cannot bear not to do the edges with distress......Crafty hugs, Anne x

wow - love the bg on the card - I forget about this technique and it is soo perfect for your card. Beautiful butterflies on the card and the tag and I adore that sentiment! Well done.

Korry said...

Oh no ! that's why I could not find your shows on the planner. Damn I was looking forward to them, I hope they will reschedule soon !!!!! This tag is lovely, I love the colours

Hi Hels,
Love the card and the tag. I've got that stamp set too and love it. Shame about the show being cancelled was so... Looking forward to it. All good things happen in the end. X

Oooh it is soooo bloomin' annoying that they have postponed your shows. I'm sure they could have picked other ones. 000ps! Anyway love the tag and card - colours I don't use - no reason - but I feel I have to experiment more. They look great - and I like the butterfly - before I was a blogger, butterflies weren't my thing! How I have changed!!

Gorgeous and love the colourway - it wouldn't be 'you' if it was flat!! Shame about the TV shows

Lottie said...

Oh these are stunning - and what joy to have several different shades of green distress inks - they do compliment each other and make the butterflies stunning.

Hope the TV shows are resurrected soon. It will be lovely if they crop up around Christmas time

Sue said...
