Linda's back - Eyes tag

The oh so talented Linda Cain is back wowing us at Paperartsy and yesterday she created an amazing tag, mixing Fresco paints and distress inks - crafty heaven!

I didn't have the same house/shrine stamp Linda used so had to adapt - here is my version!  I followed the method that Linda used so won't repeat all the instructions here - check the Paperartsy blog for Linda's step by step...

 here are my pieces waiting assembly.  All stamps are by Paperartsy, from all sorts of plates!!
I broke open a new black archival ink pad today, as I wasn't getting much luck with my embossing - wow, what a difference - my old one must be soooo dry!! (Must get a re-inker at Ally Pally next month!!)

It's nearly time for Linda's second project of the week - I can't wait!!

Looks fab! I think we often use drier pads and it's not until we use a juicy one do we realise. I'm the same with my pens!! Take care Zo xx

Those eyes are fabulous. I dread to think how dry my ink pads are - bought them a couple Years ago and they are rarely used :-)

Bet I've missed loads of your posts, am off to catch up :-)
