I don't know why I never seem to use purple much in my crafting even though it is a favourite colour of mine. I managed to get this tag done at the beginning of the week before chaos broke out. Firstly our little Cavalier King Charles Dylan became poorly and wouldn't eat which is very unusual as he is a little greedy guts. He is eleven now which is old for a cavalier so we were very worried, but after three visits to the vet this week he finally seems to be improving.
Then OH decided to come off his push bike and we had to head over to A & E, for x-rays etc but fortunately he is ok and on the mend now, but requiring lots of sympathy which I'm not very good at LOL. So no time for crafting this week. So hopefully back to normal next week. Anyway enough of my domestic sagas back to crafting.
This is for two challenges The Stampsmith ~ Tag Art & Pan Pastel UK Challenge ~ Use two of something I started with a blank tag and stamped a crafty individuals swirl in embossing ink then blend some pan pastels (the purple and green colours from the pastel set) across the tag and it highlighted the swirl. I got this idea from Sue's blog Stamping Sue Style on her gorgeous Bugs and Butteflies card. Then used the lovely Serena (the stampsmith) stamp on glossy card and highlighed with zig photomarkers and distress inks. I mounted onto some black card and edged with gilders patina paste. I dyed an old muslin cloth and some seam binding with distress inks and then dry embossed and die cut a small heart, highlighting with more patina. The flower is made using Tim Holtz pine cone die. Finished by adding some lace and a couple of pearls.
Hope your having a great & very crafty weekend. XX
