This weeks Sunday Challenge on UK Stampers is F for face, here is my tag.
The background was stamped with a swirly background stamp the Distress paint in picket fence was applied randomly, whilt this was drying I stamped the face (part of a collage stamp) onto a separate piece of thin card then ripped around 3 sides of it.
The 'f' was painted in sandel dabber paint, sanded when dry to make a really smooth surface was then stamped with the same stamp, (to pick out the exact part of the stamp I used the stamp with the rubber face upwards and place the letter carefully over where I wanted the image to be.) The lips were coloured using Le Plumes and a water brush and a small amount was added to the cheek area too. This was then adhered to the main face making sure to line it up carefully. This was then attached to the tag.
The 'jar' was stamped onto thin card and cut out and stuck to the background, the words (from Elenor Rigby by the Beatles) I printed on the computer.

T is for time.
Last weeks sunday Challenge on UK Stampers. I'm a bit late with this one (blogging it anyway, I did make it on time and thought I had blogged it but obviously not!).
The background on the tag was made using distressed inks (dusty concorde, faded jeans and vintage photo) randomly applied with an aplicator. This was then stamped with 3 different backgrounds in the 'time' theme, the top half was then covered with vellum stamped with 'Time is a healer, a friend, a maker of Dreams' stamp, the bottom half is acetate stamped with a 'time' collage stamp. Another quote was stamped onto shrink plastic and attached with glossy accents after it had been shrunk.
To finish off a 't' was painted with purple acrylic paint and over stamped with a 'clock' background stamp and a band of white card stamped with 'time' was attached at the middle of the tag.

This weeks Sunday Challenge.

This is my tag for this weeks challenge.
This was a tough challenge but this is what I came up with this week!
The background. A piece of an old invoice from a builders merchant (found at a local car boot on Sunday) was adhered to the tag, this was then painted with a thin layer of gesso when dry distress inks in peeled paint and faded jeans was applied and a branch (Tim Holtz) stamped in black Archival ink.
The house was made from 2 stamps, the roof is from Crafty Indiviuals and the door is from Paper Artsy, the 'fairies' are cut out from a stamp from The Queens Dresser Drawers and wings added (dragonfly wings from Paper Artsy) stamped into fantasy film and ironed.
The letter is Maya Road and coloured the same way as the background, the words are stamped in black Archival.
