....and breathe!

Wow!! Did you see the announcement from Lin and Leandra?  The one and onlyTim Holtz is teaching a masterclass for an Artsycraft day in February!!!

Booking opens Monday night - I shouldn't be telling you cos you may take my place, lol!!!

I made this tag - the flowers are smiling, the music is playing and.... take a deep breath!!

inks are fired brick and rusty hinge. The flower is one of the free cover stamps from the Craft Stamper and the words from a self-inking box set (no idea who makes them, got them from LB Crafts ages ago)






I also had a chance to play with one of the Lost Coast Design dress form stamps and made this tag - not sure about this, was really only messing about, but think it may need something else.
Used bundled sage and crushed olive, splashed some water on it.  The dress is blended with tumbled glass and victorian velvet.
The Wendy flower on the tag has been rock candied!
The 'style is eternal' is by Hero Arts.




Off to the Craft Barn extravanganza tomorrow - although really shouldn't - I should be saving in case I get on the Tim/Artsycraft day in February.......

Hey - I really like the tag lovely stamp and colours - great blue and green. Maybe you just need to pimp it with some ribbons, buttons or vintage lace. I have seen your stash and I am sure there is the odd embellishment or two in there...!

I really like that dress stamp, and it looks quite effective with the flower behind. I really need to refrain from buying more stamps but its so difficult. Love the colours on the first tag too. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans x
