Sunday Stamper - Week 342 - Wind Beneath My Wings

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Thanks for your fab textured entries to last weeks challenge.  The new theme this week is... WINGS You can interpret the challenge how you like: be it a birdy, a bug, a bee or a butterfly... the choice, it be yours!   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 31st January 2015.

My entry this week is a little tag I bunged together whilst I was having a quick Saturday night Skypey sesh with Ellen - for some reason my Mojo has well and truly upped and offed to sunnier climes... the old cad... and he has been gone for over a month!!! However, just sitting yakking with our Ellen made him come home (momentarily) so I grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and got cracking making this tag.  The background was made by spritzing the tag with Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Frayed Burlap Distress Spray Stains... I LOVE these colour together. Once dried, I used Tim's Latticework Layering Stencil and Bundled Sage to add a bit of detail to the Bundled Sage bits where the sprays had landed.  I blended around the edge with a smidge of Gathered Twigs and then used Walnut Stain Distress Marker to puff little speckles onto the tag.

The butterfly has been sitting on my desk for yonks... inked and cut out but not coloured... so he got some Bundled Sage and Stormy Sky DI blended onto him and then I set about making something for him to sit on.  I have tonnes of Prima flowers so I made a little bundle... and used a feather that Grim had cut out for me last week (it was supposed to be used on last weeks tag but didn't make it on there!) using Tim's Writing Desk Alterations die feather.. I love the look with the bookpage and a bit of Distress Ink.  A few embellies and a typed word (yep, the old Underwood came out again for this... can you see on the G... it has a bottom bit of red... need to sort that out, must be the ribbon thingy... as ever, I am showing my intelligence with all things teckernickals lol) And there you have it... one tag, made in an hour!  Hurrah!

That's all from me.. I am typing this at great speed as I should be in bed... I am driving to Hull first thing for a Dabble Day at Craftique.. I needs my beauty sleeps so I shall say... Thanks for looking and have a great day!  TTFN

Lovely tag Hels, all the embellishments are great. Love how there is a little bit of red ink showing on the word, it so brings back memories of the ribbons and the clip thingy the ribbon went into. Thank you x

Hi Hels, I hope Mr Mojo has well and truly finished his vacations !! mine has followed suit.
I'm loving your tag, especially the typed word, I started off my secretarial career on a manual typewriter, it brings back happy memories reading about yours.
I spent all afternoon stamping and distressing, only to make a mess of everything I tried, better luck next time haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Hels,

Lovely tag. The colours, inking and the flowers are just right.

Lovely sentiment. its one that has a very special meaning to me.

Hope El Mojo has returned from where he has been, and hopefully he's too tired to bugger off somewhere else!

Happy crafting

Great tag - stunning butterfly and I love what you have done with the feather. Have really missed not being able to join in as have had the ideas but not the time. So to make up for it, there are two this week. Hope you're keeping well x
