Hello everyone,

Writing this post on Thursday ready for Saturday..I have few things to do today, I need to go get some more Bizzy Lizzies for my back garden strip, I had two strips, both were under stones and I moved one lot and turned it back into a garden under my kitchen window, planted impatiens [bizzy Lizzies] then decided they looked so nice I would do the other end, so I did, now need flowers..

Right, another tag, this one was for my eldest Son for Christmas..

I used water colour paints to start this tag Christmas colours..

Lots of white splattering..

Then turned my attention to the brick wall die, one of my favourites last the living daylights out of it, with Distress inks..I only have 8 inks and I love them all, browns, greens, and micas..awesome.

Die cut the Stag head out of kraft card and sprayed with the inks, but only in parts, very lightly, and it gives that blotchy look..

Looked real dark here, but dries back..

There he is, the proud beast..

So popped him onto the brick wall which dried beautifully and all the Mica bronze came through..

Some fir branches and white berries across the top..

I loved how it turned out..

And there it is..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm off the plant shop ..


Challenges to enter....
