Sunday, Monday, Monday!!

No, I haven't gone mad - just catching up on some challenges! The weekend didn't turn out how I planned it, and I couldn't get to the event at the Craft Barn, sadly.

However, tonight I had time to play - and managed one tag to fit 3 challenges!!


I started by smooshing some wild honey distress ink on my craft sheet, and spritzed it with a reinker/perfect pearl combi (spiced marmalade, perfect copper) and swiping the tag through it.  Inked round the edges with wild honey ink to emphasise the colour.  Stamped the 'journal' stamp (Tim Holtz) in coffee archival, sponged spiced marmalade and rusty hinge through the crafters worksop brick template.
Overstamped the tag with the Paperartsy flowers also in rusty hinge and added the idea-ology bits and prima flower, and some final shimmer in sunflower sparkle perfect pearl spray!

This challenge is for Sunday stampers - happy stash - that's all of it then!  Thanks Hels'
Grungy Monday - Distress Ink-o-rama - check out the great art at Linda's Studio L3 and last but not least,
Simon Says, show a tag.

As always thanks to Tim Holtz for the inspiration and Simon Says for the prize on offer!

It's sad to read that you couldn't meet up with your friends at the Craft Barn event over the weekend. However, at least it allowed you more time to play with your existing art supplies. And entering THREE challenges was amazing. I've heard some people enter more than one using a single entry, but I am totally impressed that you were able to do that.

BTW, I'm still having blogger problems.
