The background was stamped with  Archival Espresso ink, some black card from my stash...I'm really sorry about the image but when I was in Canada my dear friend gave me 3 A4 pages of vintage images but I can't find the company ( sorry) the pearls, lace & flower are from my stash.....I did use a little dylusions ink spray (white linen) over the whole tag... Thank you so much for your visit today... take care...

Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry I have not visited much this week but boy I've been sooooo tired coming home from work , shower then bed.. I was just feeling mentally & physically drained by it all.. Anyway enough of me!! I'm feeling better now or maybe it's got something to do with I have 4 days off coming up over Easter... so lots of Family & crafty time yipee!!!

Today I have made a tag using one the fabulous images from NiceCrane Designs...& this is a first for me I coloured it with Distress inks... normally use promarkers... I think I need some more practice but I really enjoyed it...

I hope you like it!! Pop over to NICECRANE DESIGNS & have a look around at the wonderful images!!! click HERE... Thank you so much for your visit...Keep warm & safe!  Hugs May x x x x

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well , I am taking part in Brenda's Special Celebration over at FLORAL FANTASIES (Brenda's Blog)  We are to make anything that we think reminds us of Brenda's blog makes ... Well I made a card for Brenda and I used the stamp set from Katy Sue Designs called Fabulous Shoes...As Brenda makes the most wonderful cards!! I adore it when Brenda makes a fashion tag or card with a dressform on it.. or one of her wonderful elegant ladies cards... Brenda also loves poppies (red poppies) hence the colour red on the shoes... That's what made me think of the Fabulous Shoes... If you have never visited Brenda's blog well let me tell you ---you are in for a treat..Pop over & say Hello!!

The papers are Graphic 45...the sentiment is from whimsy stamps...

This Recipe was chosen by the lovely talented Trace it's...Green---Die-Cuts---Cogs... So looking forward to all your fabulous entries as always... Have fun!! The only rule is you must use at least one real stamp on your tag!!!

It is really difficult to make out but I have stamped some cogs onto the tag before embossing... I used Dylusions ink spray (cut grass) over the background.. My die cut is the car & arrow from Tim Holtz mover & shapers range! I used inka gold to colour them both.. A little burlap for the tag top! the black sequins is from the pound shop.. I thought it looked like some of the roads in the UK...(lol) only joking!!!..
