Gosh I'm shattered my grandson has not stopped all day with the exception of eating his lunch and was still running round when his dad picked him up.....early night for me tonight I think, I did managed to get a tag done, he sits on my lap and we have to play with the brushes and punches whilst I do a bit here and there, finished it off after he had left......the doctor keeps telling my blood pressure is abit high....bit of a joke when you are chasing round playing horses with your grandson, the last time I visited the docs he told me to take more he having a laugh or what!!!
Today tag is using one of my first and favourite stamps from Crafty Individuals.....shes so angelic looking, I distressed the tag using Victorian Velevet, Broken China and dusty Concord with a smidge of fired brick around the edges, spritzed the tag with Irr.Gold Glimmer mist.

 The music stamp is also from CI and was stamped onto acetate as were the wings which I coloured in on the back with Viva Precious metal paint, the wing stamp is from Clear Art Stamps, the lace is pleated down the edge, flowers are from the usual waste sheets after misting and I embossed the centres in gold adding diamantes to some of the centres, the small ceramic roses are from them ages ago at a bead fair.

Challenges are
Rainbow Lady......take a trip to fantasy land and add a tag.Gingersnap Creations.....following on with their theme of wings.....use acetate.

Everybody Art.....things with wings.
Crafty Angels....use your favourite stamp.
Die cut dreams.....angels.
Tag Your It....needle and thread open to interpretation, Lace is made with thread

Thanks for taking a peek
and leaving a comment
much appreciated.
