Shades of purple ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I really wanted to create a few tags this month and luckily for me they fit quite a few challenges too! Here is the first one I’ve created …

I do love creating these large chubby tags with all that depth & texture
All the yummy detals
My favourite butterfly and flower stamp

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Butterfly Challenge #86 Any Shape & Quartz

I have to say I’m somewhat surprised that it’s the beginning of October already! It feels like I only just got to the beginning of September and I turned around and it’s the beginning of another month again! I am dreading the C word because I know it’s going to be arriving to our TV screens soon. Grr, anyway forgive my grumpiness, I’m here because I created a tag using the colours at Paperbabes Stamp Challenge. Beautiful shades of soft green and lavender through to purple and I’m in my element lol! The piece at the bottom was created using my gorgeous new Finnabair stencil (thank you so much Craft Stamper)! I applied Ranger matt transparent texture paste through the stencil to A4 white card and once that was dry was coloured with purple Brusho Watercolour Crystals.

Everything else was created with white card snippets, lots and lots of lovely snippets which have been breeding! I decided not to add any further details as I’m pretty sure everyone out there knows how I did this and what I used. If you ever have any questions just ask I’m happy to do a tutorial or two lol! 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

I love your wonderfully coloured tag. Full of such a lot to look at and admire. I'm still seeing some beautiful butterflies here in the garden. Big ones too. Keep checking my fuchsia bush as well in case a Hawk Moth caterpillar takes a shine to it. Thankyou for fluttering into the garden. Hugs Mrs A.
