Throwing it all at a tag and loving it ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Yep back with a second very quick post as I’ve another project I want to enter certain challenges. This tag is one of my favourite September creations. I wanted to stretch myself and my skills too. I am in love with the end result of this tag and if I could only ever create one style for the rest of my life then this is the style I would choose and here it is …

I’ve just realised that I used the Stamplorations butterfly mask again lol! Okay I am not going to explain every single step I took as it would take me a long time and several posts, lol, so if anyone would love to know how I created this tag leave me a comment and I’ll do a tutorial in October. To be quick and brief I drew around the butterfly images with a colouring pencil then used my SNATs to colour the butterflies. Once dry I re-positioned that mask and then started playing with acrylic paints, Perfect Pearls, and more SNATs. The SNAT pops even more when added over acrylic paint and that was a huge surprise! The butterflies were stamped with old chalk IPs and then fussy cut out. I coloured the flowers and metal embellishments with acrylics and other products. The bird is one I made with my MS mould: simples not but fun and educating: heck yes!!
I was hoping to reach 60 Followers with my candy and I am overwhelmed and over the moon with the amount of you lovely new Followers and Friends that I now have: thank you, thank you, thank you! Your support means more than you would ever know.
I’ll be back again tomorrow with another project or two and I'm hoping to get my Tim Holtz tag created before the end of the month too, I'm busy right now and loving it! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
