You are simply the best - Always Fun Challenge #124

Monday August 19, 2019
 
hello and it's time for another challenge at
Our theme this week is MAKE A TAG
 
This is my tag.. I do like making them but I always seem to not know what to do while designing or what to do afterwards.. (although I have been making tags last few weeks..) I can only use so many in my bible journaling or planners but here's one more..
So for my tag.. I used a Tim Holtz tag and then dug through my scraps and found this grayish greenish paper. I stamped some various Club scrap stamps all over it and  Simon says sentiment. I then adhered it to the tag and cut the excess off. I went over different areas with stripe washi tape. I used Distress crayon and went around the edges. I added some Taylored Expressions butterflies and some acrylic dots. I added a brad to the top.

So thankful for this day

Sunday August 18, 2019
 
I thought I had added this card.. but I've been having so much internet problems it's probably out there in cyber space. If it shows up twice I'll delete one..
I have been taking some of these fun stamps and stamping them in my Canson water color tablet. I then take my paints (in this care it's Mission Gold water colors) and take them out on the deck and paint a bunch of images. Then it takes days to cut them out. I have a nice big bowl of stamped/ painted/ die cut images ready for cards when needed. This card I used stamps from Mama Elephant, My Favorite Things, and sentiment is Tech. Tuesday.. I used Ranger oxide ink to create the background then added to a base. I used foam dots to give the images depth. some are and some aren't. I also used a little Spectrum Noir sparkle brush..

Friday August 16, 2019
 
Hello.. It's your lucky day..
 It's Friday over at Bugaboo so that means Free Friday
 
Check out the design teams creations over at
 
This image is called Heels big bow.. I found some scraps and tried to color the heels using the colors in the watercolor looking scrap..but the red just didn't want to come out right .. SO I went over it with some darker colors. I finally got what I liked. I wanted to add the Simon Says sentiment but not sure where so I added to the center and it was cut with Stampin up die. You can still see that they are heels. I used a Simon Says stamp and Ranger ink and stamped off and created the background. I used My favorite things stitch die. I then added it all to the card base. I went over the bows with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.
