Good morning lovelies! How are you today? All well I hope! I'm finding myself a little behind just now - school holibobs again and I can't manage to get everything done - lol! This means that I'll be quiet for the next couple of days - don't worry - I've not fallen off the edge of the planet - just struggling to keep up! It also means that I've had to combine two posts into one today! I hope you don't mind!
First off is the new challenge at Creative Inspirations
- the theme this week is Tag it. This week's challenge is Tag It!
Create or include a Tag on your creations!
This week we are joined by our sponsor CRAFTS U LOVE
who are giving the Winner a £10 Voucher!
Here's what I made using sheenas stamps and folders:
I made the tag background using distress paints - the metallic distress paints are awesome - loved doing this.
Next I ran this through the embossing machine - the arches - and swiped with the black stazon pad - I also used some small stamps to compete the background.
Then I stamped and fussy cut the elephant - such a cute chappie!!!
Hope you like this - and now its time for tag 2 - this is my entry for Tims tag May. Tims tag this month is something I found quite difficult - but the my version of Tims tag is pretty personal and I do like it!
I used the same techniques as Tim throughout - they are found here
. I made the background up using reds - i love red - its my fave colour - and I think it always will be!
The paper behind the 'love' emblem is my favourite from the menagerie collection. I have chosen the words Lucky and love as I feel I am now very lucky in love - it wasn't always the case but since being with my wonderful Shaun I couldn't be happier.
The 7 has been altered using the altered surface technique from Compendium of curioisties vol3 I chose the orange and green as i love these two colours too - the orange is reminiscent of my gingery hair - and green - well my gardening fingers.
I chose the bar as i think its an important way to be! Finally the pen nib has the word 'thoughts' on it - thoughts are so important - and this piece involved a lot of them!
Well thats it for now - back on Sat morning! I'll be taking my mum to the craft show at Bolton arena - Look out for me if you're going to be there!
Big hugs and thanks for visiting!
oh - here's my latest face painting attempt - very pleased with tiger Lucy!
