Linda's countdown - 8

Today's countdown tag had to be a quickie as I have a birthday card to make for a colleague at work for tomorrow and another one to finish to get in the post.

The tag is coloured with bundled sage and pumice stone, stamping is mostly done with forest moss and bundled sage.  All stamps are Tim's today. The heart is (badly) painted with Picket Fence crackle paint.

We're all counting with you, Linda!









(EDITED) Speedy birthday card done for my work colleague - using my new Banana Frog stamps (I won a set in their May blog hop and chose the "scribble flowers" set)

 I thought that the stamps matched the tattered florals die quite nicely so grabbed some mulberry paper in these rusty/dark yellowy shades with some of the layers I had set by, and distress inks in wild honey and mustard seed.

Those 'thoughts' stamps are so much better stamped. I had not seen them actually stamped before, I love them, might need to snaffle me a set of them lol You did a great job, I love your tag.
