Latest Inspirational Tags

This first tag is the reverse of the Butterflies tag a few posts below.

I made the background using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks. I inked the very edges with Bundled Sage DI, then over sprayed the whole piece with Broken China re-inker mixed with Perfect Pearl, perfect pearls. The whole piece has a gorgeous shimmery quality that I doubt the camera really picked up. I then ran it through my texture embossing folder. Sometimes simple is really the best!!

The second tag is the reverse of the floral tag below.

This was made simply by applying Spun Sugar DI mainly to the centre of the tag & building darker layers of colour outwards towards the edges, using Worn Lipstick & Fired Brick. I then spritzed it with water & quickly mopped up the excess with kitchen towel to give the mottled look. I stamped the Heidi Swapp Heart in Fired Brick DI for impact & I particularly love how the open pattern shows through in paler pink.

I especially love this quote!!!

Well, I hope you have all begun your Easter Weekend on a good note. I am home today, but travel first thing tomorrow to Morpeth, outside Newcastle to stay with my big sister, Tracy.
I will look forward to a break, but its back to work Tuesday for 3 days and then a long weekend at home to do some creating.

My printer is still not sorted out and I seriously think i might have to look at purchasing another :((( Expense I could do without, but I have been a week without the printer and it is hindering my creative process!!
