Stars #1 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I really wanted to join in the celebrations over at Simon Says Stamp so I’ve spent the weekend getting very mucky fingers but oh my I love the projects I am going to share with you tonight and here is the first one …

A galaxy inspired tag, so much paint and ink!

All the inky details
You can see some of the sparkle and shine when it's tilted
That's my favourite bit, where you can see all the layers
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Emerald Creek Dares September: Celebrate Canada
I’ve been looking at photographs of Canada and especially the night skies  I’ve got a lot of photographs of Canada on this  Pinterest board and now I want to go to Canada more than ever!!

It took some time and a lot of layers of watercolour, Perfect Pearls and quite a few squirts of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray to create the background on this tag and yes my fingers were really mucky once I finished. I knew what I wanted to create and I really hoped I could lol! I used very good quality watercolour paper because of the amount of water and paint and inks that I would be adding. If anyone would like a tutorial I’d be happy to do one at some point in the next week or two.

I have to go now because I have another post to write, wanted get another entry into the challenge before it closes. 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 soon ttfn Karen x
