Sunday Stamper - Week 307 - Lily The Pink

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Many thanks for all your gorgeous entries to last weeks challenge.   This week the theme is a nice easy-peasy one.... use PINK.    To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.   Include the theme and add in some stamping and then pop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come visiting.  If you haven't got a blog/photo-hosty-thingy, you can also join in via Facebook (just tag my name) or by sending me a small res. pic via email.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 17th May 2014.


My entry this week is a tag that I have been faffing around with all week - you know, you start something and then you get distracted... and when you come back to it you have forgotten what you were doing?  Oh, just me then lol   Anyways, this one has been on the simmer all week and finally I have finished it!   The tag is a Size 8 and I covered it with some of Tim't 8" Menagerie papers (oooh, these are lush!) and then I did a smidge of inking using Pumice Stone DI and then overstamping with more Pumice Stone and a script stamp (although you can't actually see that now, it is there... honest!)   I then used Seedless Preserves around the edges  of the tag and lightly misted it with water to make the inking more subtle... and I love the pinky hue it gives off.  A final blend of Black Soot DI around the edges to give it a nice frame and then a little darker stamping using the diddy diamond stamp and Jet Black Archival ink.




The butterfly is the very first stamp I ever bought!  Wow, that has to be about 9 years ago now!  Anyways, it is by PSX who are no longer pressing rubber so I guess it is a bit of a rare one.  Well, he is one of my fave butterflies ever and I haven't inked him for yonks, so he was stamped onto more of Tim's papers, coloured with Black Soot and Seedless Preserves DI's and a waterbrush and then I misted over with a watered down mix of Raspberry Cosmic Shimmer Mist.   The flowers are just plain white ones... these were treated to a spritz of Black Dylusions spray and then more of the watered down Raspberry spray... just a smidge of pink showing on the petals.   Now, whilst I was misting with the Black Dylusions I had a bit of an oopsiedaisy!  Namely I spritzed the mister over the tag by accident.. pants!  Aha, not going to waste all that time and paper so I just went with it and I have to say, I rather like it!    The little frame is one of Tim's peel off's (too funny, peel off's!!!) and I have used some of his rub-on's underneath for the butterfly to sit on.  The letters are Alphaparts and I added a few blingy buttons and a bit of tulle to the top of the tag and there you have it!




I really should get myself moving... I am scheduling this post - tis Saturday night and I am just gearing up to watch the Eurovision... oh how I loves this annual fest of incredibly outrageous European musical bods.   So, I shall say... thanks for looking.. have a fabby day today!  I am away to Coventry again today for another Melt Art class as Daisy's Jewels & Crafts, we had a great day yesterday (uh-oh, I am thinking "it is still today... but actually it is yesterday now... "  EEEK!!!!)   Blimey, I better go before I convince myself that it is next week already!  TTFN

As soon as I read this week's title "Lily the Pink" the song popped straight into my head. I used to sing "Lily the Pink, the Pink, the Pig" (in my younger days)and it always made me laugh! Oh, lovely tag you've made to go with this theme, as always!!!

Stella said...

Lily the Pink was the first single I ever had - loved it! Back in the day when you did buy singles ha ha not just download them on some gadget or other . The tag is gorgeous, stunning colour, beautiful flowers, and a really fab butterfly. Have a great day - hope you enjoyed Eurovision!

I actually thought the bearded lady deserved to win, I only caught the end....at least we got a few points this year.

Your tag is lush, I love that happy accident, it looks like it was meant to be and the butterfly is delightful. I think I quite like pink! Hugs, Anne xx

Hi Hels, I hope you enjoyed Eurovision, I certainly did, I thought there were quite a few this year that were really good, although I didn't think the Winner was the 'best', but hey ho, we need to put our 'thinking caps' on for next year now haha !!
I'm loving your tag, gorgeous colours, and I'm loving the butterfly 'body'. The song is in my head now !!!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
