Tag Tuesday -- Blues and browns

One of my favourite colour combinations on Tag Tuesday this week. The background is distress inks splattered with water. I then coloured some embossing paste with the same colour of distress ink and applied it through a stencil. I then added various flowers and tiny acorns, with a friendly plastic butterfly to finish off.

Every Inchie Monday -- Necklace

Quite an easy one this week on Every Inchie Monday, which was just as well as we have been away for a long weekend. The stampbord one has gems stuck on, and for the sewn one I made a pearl necklace, and placed it on red leather.

Tag Tuesday -- Jewellery

I didn't find this one very easy, and resorted to a vintage stamp of a woman, and surrounded her with different types of jewellery. The background is distress ink and the swirls embossed in gold. Luckily I have a good collection of broken jewellery and bits picked up in charity shops. I don't usually work in pink, so that was a bit of a challenge as well.

Every Inchie Monday -- Pavilion

Not an easy one this week on Every Inchie Monday, I don't think I'm the only one struggling with this one. I have made an attempt at drawing a Japanese tea pavilion and sewn a garden one.

Tag Tuesday -- Net

I wasn't sure how to tackle this one, and in the end made two. The sewn one is on a background of fabric printed with my gelli plate and butterflies attached to it. I then sewed some net over the top. I hate the thought of people catching them, but they do.
The other one has a distress ink background with stamped fish and yarn seaweed with some glass type bubbles added as well. I then with great difficulty stuck the net over the top. Unfortunately, lots of the wrong fish are caught in nets and are often not thrown back in the sea.

Every Inchie Monday -- Lamp

For my Lamp inchies this week I have sewn with shiny silver fabric an Aladin type lamp. For the stampbord one I have drawn a Tiffany lamp.

Tag Tuesday -- Adventure

I went to Africa for my adventure this week and made a slightly larger tag than I normally do. I just couldn't get my elephant on a smaller one, well not with everything else I wanted to put on it. I used some card from some packaging, distress inked it and then added my stamped images.
