in the secret garden

I've spent a little while this evening (in between hopping round workdesks, lol) making this quick and simple tag - well, I had to use some of my new paperartsy stamps, else they'd feel unloved.

I used pumice stone and crushed olive on the tag itself and crushed olive/bundled sage/peeled paint for the paperartsy images.  I stamped the "secret garden" on a scrap of metal that was lying handily around (lol) and the Wendy stamp is in black archival.

Am still trying to get my blog background back but the website that hosts it is down so it will have to stay blank for now!  I have been looking at various others but so far haven't found one I really like.

Gotta have a cup of tea now (it's getting cold behind me) I'm parched!

I just love how you have scraps of metal lying handily around :P This is gorgeous, love the softness of the colours and stamp and the hardness of the metal.

I showed Craig your pictures last night, his jaw just about hit the deck. Think he is worried I might be aspiring to your stash greatness *g*
