Hi everybody, hope you are all enjoying your Easter break! Here it has been very cold, really freezing, but we have had some sun, so that was at least something!
I made a tag and a card this weekend. The tag is for the new Artful Times Blog, where the challenge is to make a tag. My tag has been cut from the cardboard packaging of some Prima flowers; as it is already printed, I just needed to ink the edges. I stamped the Leonardo da Vinci lady (Lost Coast Stamps) with olive green Stazon and clear embossed it. Then I added some pieces of gold chain from a broken bracelet and a scrap of lace to give her a collar. The flowers are from Prima, and the fibres and ribbon were in my scrap bag. The quote says, *May the dreams of your past be the reality of your future*. The tag was quick and easy to make, with the exception of threading the beads onto the fibres....
The card is my DT piece for the challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad, where the theme for the next 2 weeks is *From the Past*, sponsored by *Altered Pages*.
I have used speciality stamping paper from LaBlanche, distressed with Victorian velvet and crushed sage DIs. The background has been stamped with a script stamp and some flourishes (both from LaBlanche). I added some paper lace, rub-ons, prima-flowers and an image from my stash. The cameo is one of a boxful I bought years back from EBAY. I have tried to give the feeling of past times with the soft colours and floral images.
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
