Been watching the footie again tonight (Spain v Chile) and trying to complete a tag.
Had 2 attempts - one a complete disaster - and NO, I am not going to show you!! and the second one - the one I will show you! - which is OK, although not what I started out to do.
I started by trying to do a dabber resist tag from Tim's book but I don't know if I didn't have enough paint on the stamp, or scrubbed the ink off too hard or what - but it's going in the bin.
I used crushed olive and wild honey inks on the tag then sprayed key lime pie glimmermist and quince craftynotions sprays and dried them, then stamped the image (it's a Magenta stamp - every time I use one, I remember how much I love them!) in black archival. I've used a white Inkessentials pen to hightlight the flowers in the midde. A couple of Wendy sentiments, a couple of flowers sprayed with key lime pie and some bling, matching ribbons and - kind of - success.
You cannot believe the mess on the other tag! I cannot believe it isn't ALREADY in the bin!!
Well, as I mentioned on Wednesday, tomorrow I hit the ripe old age of 51 and I don't know what I'm going to do to "celebrate". I thought of going to Kew Gardens (yes, again!) or maybe up to London, but I can't decide - and I have lots of shopping to do (boring stuff, mostly but I might have to do a bit of "treat me" shopping) which I kind of want to get done before it gets too hot and then there is the prospect of LOTS of sport I need to watch on TV all weekend.... so watch this space. I may just do the shopping and then craft.... which sounds kind of nice too!
Hope you all have a great time too.
