Am I cute or what ?

First wiped custom made distress inkpad on paper.
Then smeared dylusions squeezed orange on bubblewrap for the background.
Finished -after stamping- with chitchat words, tissuetape and black gesso.

12 tags of 2015 - july

Here is my take on Tim's tags of 2015 - july.

No 4th of july in The Netherlands, but the colours of our flag are red, white & blue, so I took those colours and I chose for the theme Da Vinci.

Just purchised the hickory smoke distress pad last week, so I am glad I can use it on this tag.

Still am not happy that the fired brick marker has a brownish colour, it is so different than the inkpad, but what can you do...
That's why the ribbon doesn't have that touch of red, but then again I could have used the festive berries (thought came in mind after I finished colouring).

(to my surprise I won the June challenge - how fun!)

Hold On Tight

Kathi is the hostess on Stampotique Designers Challenge this week and she's got attached.

SDC203; Use Attachers

I swiped my custom blend distress inkpad (tumbled glass/peacock feathers/faded jeans) over white cardstock as background.
'Attached' the boy & dog with a staple. Stapled some under the dog.
Attached some ribbon with staples and brads (they have been hiding in the craftroom for ages.....) and finished with some matching eyelets.
Really must use those more often, I have soooo many.

Kathi is our hostess this week and she's got attached:

Use attachers, the older the better.  Thinking of eyelets, brads, staples, etc.  Bonus points if someone uses all three.  Extra super bonus points if someone attaches Stampotique images to each other
