Here is my tag for this weeks Sunday Challenge on U K Stampers.
The background is distress inks (dusty concord, faded jeans and vintage photo) applied randomly then spritzed with water and blotted with a tissue. This was then stamped with a lacey background in a blue chalk ink.
The 'drama queen' was stamped twice so I could use the second arm to attach to the back of her after she had been cut out.
The 'q' has been painted in acrylic paint, the words were stamped in black archival ink.

Sunday Tag Challenge

'P is for Party' was this weeks Sunday challenge tag.
Looking through my rubber for inspiration I noticed most of my 'girl' stamps looked serene or darn right miserible so this is what I came up with.
The background is patterned papers from Crafty Individuals, the 'girls' are stamped in black Archival ink and the hats are cut free hand. The 'P' is painted in lilac acrylic paint.

Memory Brooch

I made this brooch in memory of my beautiful Mum who passed away 2 years ago today.
The background is a piece of patterned paper from Crafty Individuals which I stamped some small flowers on. The photo is the only piture I have of my Mum, Dad and me together, (I was only 10 months old) it was a very long time ago.
The booch is from K&co and the dangle on the end is a find from an antique shop.

Love You Mum. XXX

This weeks Sunday Challenge.

This is my tag for this weeks Sunday challenge over on UK Stampers. I was inspired by song titles and diamond stamps.
The background is a mixture of 2 diamond background stamps one is stamped in versa mark and the embossed with a glue embossing powder from Judikins, then covered in silver leaf. and the plainer diamonds are stamped in black archival ink.
The 'D' is from Maya Road, 'iamonds' are stamped and the other words are printed. Two white brads and 3 'diamonds' were added for a little 'bling'.

Tags all finished at last!

Had a bit of an accident on Sunday while chopping up some mint for mint sauce, I missed the mint and sliced down my nail taking at least a quarter of it clean off! not a pretty sight and really painful too! ( my left index finger too and I write with my left hand but I'm ambidextros with most things). So I haven't been able to do a lot for the last few days (although I did have to finish off the Sunday roast! My hubby does not do cooking at all!) Still very painful but there are always ways round doing things!

At last I have finished ALL my tags for the Sunday challenge over on UK Stampers (even managed to do this weeks too)! So here they are in no particular order.
