Bits and Pieces - Sunday Stampers


Hels has another great theme this week on her Sunday Stampers challenge - Bits and Pieces, inspired by the Dave Clark 5 song. 

Quite by chance I had started this tag last night whilst watching Casualty (not that there's any correlation) but hadn't been sure how to "finish" it.  When I checked out the challenge this mornng, I was spurred into action.

I've used my new fave ink, Wild Honey and an old fave Dusty Concord, and yummy Wendy Vecchi stamps throughout.

I splashed some water on the tag, stamped the leaves in the same two colours.  I stamped the heart and "believe" on some watercolour paper and added them to the tag. I used crackle accents over the "believe" scrap.

The paper flower is Prima, it was already yellow but I added a bit of wild honey ink to tie in with my colour scheme, added an idealogy bit and Craftnotions rainbow drop to the middle, and also on the heart, with a bit of bling too!

I cut some yellow ribbon (hmmm, that's a whole other theme!!) which I also over coloured with wild honey,and stamped the leaf stamp in dusty concord on the ribbon too, although it doesn't show up very well.

So, I think that's quite a few "bits and pieces".  I am off to link it (cos I've finally learnt too, thanks to Linda's lesson a while ago!) I've linked it in case I'm not the last person out there who can do it!

I may be back, as I have a couple of other tags that are work in progress!!
