Tagged With Love

I am writing this in the sweltering heat in the UK! It is expected to reach 34c today. This is a photo of our beautiful water lillies in the sunshine.

I haven't done a lot of crafting as its too hot to sit indoors, but here is a tag I have made.

I used a kraft tag for the base with a coat of gesso. Then I stamped the sentiment (not sure where it came from!) I had a piece of card I had die cut hearts from so I used this as a stencil with Distress Ink. 
The flower stamps are from WOW! Embossing Powders. I stamped these and then cut them out. I painted a wooden heart with gesso and then used a script stamp over the top. To finish I added gilding flaekes, glitter and some twine.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Altered Eclectics - Anything Mixed Media
Creative Artiste - Mixed Media
Go Tag Thursday - Anything Goes

Animal Tag

Don't you just love it when you discover stash you have never used and completely forgotten about?!

I haven't made a tag for a challenge for a while and wanted to join in with Tag Tuesday's theme which is Animals.  Searching through my stash I found an UNOPENED PACK OF SHEENA STAMPS!!!

This is the set is called a Perfect Day

and this is the tag I made

I created a tag blank and used Distress Inks to create the background. The stencil was also found in my stash! again from Sheena and I used this with Distress Ink to create the foliage. The hare I stamped onto card and coloured with ink and a wet paintbrush. I punched out a moon shape and stamped the cloud.

Having found all that new stash I am one happy hare (bunny!)
