A tag

Hello on this wonderful Saturday.

I hope you are all well and enjoying some time is this lovely weather. It has been gorgeous here, so nice it feels like being away. I have enjoyed sitting on the deck with a good book (currently the new Dan Brown) and a nice chilled glass of something (usually water,  but occasionally wine)
I made this tag just for a wee play and quite liked how it turned out.

I painted the grey tag with a coat of white acrylic paint then put the Tim Holtz swirl mask over it (and across the other 2 for playing with) and dabbed on some Tumbled Glass,  Chipped Sapphire and Broken China Distress Inks.  I then stamped the Tim Holtz sentiment with Chipped Sapphire and heat embossed it. I made the flowers with some circles cut from a page of K & Co Sea Glass paper that was full of blue fishes (never liked it and never thought I'd use it!)

I used a Marianne die for the butterfly and coloured it with DI and then added a little holographic embossing powder to the wings for sparkle.  A couple of pearls and some ribbon and it was done.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy crafting.

Hello everyone, 
I hope you are all well and happy with your weather.
Here is Glasgow it's been remarkably warm (for us), not always sunny but warm. It's been great. Ellie has had a fab time in the sun at the park (many, many times at the park!!!) I have added a page on the blog for adding pics of Ellie as otherwise the blog will be of her. I will let you know when I add more, if you are interested.
I have been trying to craft for a time each day but it has been difficult, as the weather has been so nice.
I made my dad's birthday card for later this month. Poor dad his birthday is so close to Father's day - he doesn't get spoiled as often as he would like. ;-)
I used an LOTV stamp and some papers from my scraps box and a couple of twine tied buttons. I like it a lot and hope he does.
This is my entry to ABC Challenge which is Masculine cards this week.
My goal this week is to make his Father's Day card
Off to the museum and the park with Ellie tomorrow so I hope you have a lovely day and I will be back later in the week.
