TIO #23 Face to Face

Here we are for the next challenge. Hope I can make it weekly again now, as I get back to more normal craftng life!! Thanks to all of you who have asked about me and sent such lovely comments.

The dream this week is to use your alcohol inks and / or markers, to create a tag on the theme of FACE... Any colour scheme, but please use at least one real stamp. I used the Judikins treasure cube and vivid inks, printing over citrus, sunshine yellow and mountain rose. The background uses the tool and the dropping techniques. I am so looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!

TIO #22 - Fruits of my Labour

Well, I am finally back at my desk, for shortish spells, after my hip operation. Sorry it has taken so long to get to you all, but it is only three weeks since I had the op and I still get quite tired. But I am on the mend and the scar is doing well and I am walking with one crutch. Thanks to all of those of you who have left me messages and have visited my blogs in my absence.

Here we go then with another TIO DragonsDream challenge... Dragon would like you to dream a tag which contains an image(s) of fruit, in appropriate colours. I chose to use a new stamp, to me, from A Stamp in the Hand - a pack of pears. The pear colours of the background were achieved by rubbing distress inks over a shiny card - mustard seed, peeled paint, marigold and marmalade, and brushed corduroy. The images are stamped in onyx black and embossed in clear ep. Splatter pattern stamp, from Judikins, provides a gentle distress to the background. Simple, but effective, I think. Please use at least one REAL stamp...

This was the tag I made for TIO #21. I did not get to post it because of the holiday, operation and problems with my internet access!!! It is now mounted up to be a card for a friend's birthday. Thanks for looking... xx
