Put a tag on it!

Happy Tuesday!

And what a lovely day it is too!

Just a quick post this morning ..... I'm off out soon.  A bit of retail therapy, then coffee and a chat with a friend before I meet the eldest ..... he wants new shoes and I think he wants me to pay for them!!!

Before all that though I have my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge ..... yeah!!!  I've so missed playing along with these guys.
It's a Recipe Week and the challenge is ......

to include a TAG on our projects

You know me, I love my tags, so I couldn't miss out on this one.

I've even been playing with some of the every growing, but not getting around to using, new stash.

I love the new background stamp from Crafty Individuals ..... Baroque Splatter.  It looks fab whatever colour you use to stamp it, and its such a great size too.  Looks gorgeous on it's own ..... but is large enough to be a pretty backdrop for a main image.

I've stamped the collage directly onto my card blank using Rose Bud Memento .... so pretty in pink! Then I've cut my tag from a piece of card leftover from a day playing with Brushos

I stamped the flowers over the top using Black Versafine ink and embossed them with a clear powder to make them really pop.

I added a bit of twine to the tag, used foam pads to attach it and finished off with a sentiment.
Guess what .... I had to decorate the inside too!

It is nice to be back in the old craft room ..... I'm still getting used to where everything is but at least I'm starting to have fun again!

Thanks for popping by ........ enjoy the rest of your day. 

Cheerio until next time.
