Tag Tuesday -- Dreams

Dreams is the theme for this week on Tag Tuesday, and I have made a tag with corrugated card. I distressed the card, painted it and embossed with verdigris.I added an image and made a watercolour card with the saying. I finished off with flowers and a dove.

Every Inchie Monday -- Lasso

We have been without the phone and the internet for four days, heck what did we do before computers. Lasso is the word this week on Every Inchie Monday. They both have the same theme, a cowboy with a lasso.  Now I look at it, the stampbord one looks like a cowgirl.

Tag Tuesday -- Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air is the prompt for this week on Tag Tuesday. A quick one this week as we are dashing around like demented idiots. There are definite signs of Spring here, and I love the Spring flowers. One of my favourites is the snowdrop, so I chose to put some on my tag. The background is sprayed ink, and then stamped with my snowdrop stamp and coloured.  I then added a saying and some small die cuts.

Every Inchie Monday -- Nail

Nail is the word this week on Every Inchie Monday, not an easy one to do in stitch. For the stampbord one I have drawn a fingernail and put some nail art on. I did this with some acrylic inks and some small gems. I don't think it would stand up to me gardening with such decoration on though. For the sewn one, I have used a wood image fabric and made a nail from some soldering wire. I did a few silver French knots for nail heads in the wood.

Artful Times DT piece -- Tag with pocket

For my piece on Artful Times my 'tag with pocket' has me wishing I was on the beach somewhere hot.
I have made a large tag and folded the bottom up to form the pocket. It is coloured with distress inks and sprayed with a white mica spray to make it shine. I made the seahorse Tim Holtz style by colouring it with distress ink and adding clear crackle paint rock candy.  I die cut some seaweed and coloured them with distress inks. I added some small 3D dew drops over some stamped bubbles.
For the sandy pocket, I stamped some shells, added a piece of corrugated card from another project and die cut a starfish to go on the edge.
The tiny book in the pocket has a cover of fabric paper, and paper pages stamped with seaside images.

Tag Tuesday -- Frame it

On Tag Tuesday the theme is Frame it. I found this friendly plastic frame in my haven't used for years stash and framed the image on a distress inked background. I added a couple of grunge board flourishes that I painted gold to match the frame, and some flowers. Because the frame is quite thick the image looks a bit blurred.

Every inchie Monday -- Egyptian

On Every Inchie Monday Egyptian is the word. For the stampbord one. I painted the background black and embossed the hieroglyphics in gold. I then added a shrink plastic Tut mask.
For the sewn one, after many attempts with fabric that kept fraying I made a pyramid with the reverse side of some leatherette, which was the nearest colour I could find to stone. Not a very exciting sewn one this time.
