Portfolios - addicted already!

Well, I rushed home again today and started playing even whilst the dinner was cooking itself....  Went with another tag based on Leandra's tutorials, and one I made up as I went along....

 This is one of my favourite ever Hot Pick stamps, I just love it. Sealed the whole tag with Fesco Satin Glaze after stamping and added a ribbon - which I coloured with the pastels too, just to see if it would! and some pearls.
Couldn't get a decent photo of this one!  Used various brown shades of the pastels, only lightly blending them, masing with violet and the harlequin mask from Crafters Workshop and added some orange pan pastel (from my very limited, so far, supply!) The stamp is by Dina Wakley.  A spritz of perfect copper perfect pearl spray (doesn't show up, told you it wasn't a good picture!) AND the flash is bouncing off the new craft mat (from Jennie's blog candy from yesterday)

Both tags are lovely Helen, especially love the fusion of colours in the second.

You'r not alone with the photo problem, even on a brighter day I've found the light still not good enough to get true colours.

I'm not thinking too much about the weekend, putting all my hopes on Wednesday, as I think it could be a surer way to Europe.

Can't remember whether I left you a comment yesterday, but congratulations on your win, it's looks brilliant. Your tags are fantastic, don't you just love the pan pastels. I've got 20, went to AFTH and took a class with Dy, well what's a girl to do, but buy, buy and buy more, bank account now depleted, lol. Keep creating xx
