Still following my heart..

Time to use Darcy's second stamp set - this time on a tag.

Painted a size 8 tag with South Pacific Fresco. (I spritzed the blob of paint lightly with water to help spread it over the tag easily)
 
 Then I stamped the cogs in Wendy Vecchi's Cornflower Blue archival ink, and the jigsaw heart as shown. I coloured this with Frescos in Bora Bora, Limelight, Beach Hut and Pea Coat.


 Can't believe the difference in colour between a close up and not, on my camera! I think it's time for a new one...
the non close up above is much more realistic a colour, as you will know if you have South Pacific Fresco!

And stamped two of the patchwork hearts on some Paperartsy metal on card and painted it with Pea Coat.

Lovely tag made with set 2 of Darcy's stamps. Good to see them stamped out and coloured differently. Loving the cornflower blue from WV.

Am saving for the new Versacolour ink pads which are due soon so i can stamp on fabric:-)

These hearts look amazing. I love the way you used them on this tag, Helen.The background is smashing and the Bora Bora is such a lovely colour, it's one of my favourite Frescos. Julie Ann xx

WOW, this is awesome. You did Darcy's hearts proud.

I had to laugh about your camera. I am lucky to get my shots in focus. I've nearly given up on getting a good digital photo from any camera I've ever used. It's a shame because the technology is there, but I apparently don't have it (grin).

I still think your camera took a fantastic photo, even with the color temperature off. You realize that's why they made those gray cards back in the day of SLRs (tee hee).
