I cut the tag from watercolour paper, inked it with distress inks and then dripped water onto it and left it to dry. I love this effect.

I'm a sucker for birds and when I saw these bird stamps, I just had to get them !  The branch from Tim Holtz' set Urban Tapestry was perfect for this project.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Make Your Own Background !

I love the bright and vibrant colours of the Tropical Gelatos.

To make the background I firstly coloured directly onto the stamp with the gelatos and then spritzed it with water.  For my first try, I stamped the card in the usual way but I found that as the stamp was soooo big, I missed bits out (thats how the background stamped sentiment came about !).  For my second try, I laid the card over the stamp and pressed down on the card and this gave a better impression (well, one I liked anyway !!).

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !






Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

This release is just amazing.  I received a bundle of Christmas goodies to play with.  I especially love the font on these fabulous sentiments !


I did a bit of masking and lay the tree down on the sleigh.  I just imagined it being pulled through the snow on its way home to be decorated.

As always, you can see a list of everything I used on my card below.
