Howdie Doodie all...........how ya 'al doin'? Well as you can tell I didnt get any crafting done yesterday or last night dont you just hate those days or weekends where nothing goes to plan? Well yesterday I ended up with a house full so couldn't get anything made, I did however get to read my Magnolia Ink magazine which is fab as always!! Last night was just 1 of those nights & I just sat & coloured in between getting up to my daughter every 10 seconds..........lets just say she can be a ickle bugga at night time & its not like you can tell her off...well you can but she normally just laughs atchya......mmmmm what an angel!!! lol The hubby & youngest son were out fishing & the eldest was sleeping at his girlfriend's this weekend....so it was just the girls....... Anyway I did manage to get a couple of my new stamps inked & coloured & I decided to have a play with my Prismacolors as I have neglected them lately & they had started to get rather upset with me. I have also used 1 of my new stamps that I brought about 2-3 weeks ago....I'm doing well.
Meet Tilda in Winter Night from the crimbo 2010 collection. This is 1 of those stamps that I really wanted but so many places were out of stock & I also wanted the magazine. I eventually found the 1s I wanted at Craft Obsessions it was the 1st time I had seen this shop & I am sooo pleased with it I will def be ordering from these again. Not only was the delivery exceptionally fast they also sent me a free gift....The red fibre on the tag I got free, I got a long length of red & 1 in white....I just think thats such a nice thing to do especially in the economy we are in at the mo. I thought I would make a tag altho the papers I cant remember what they are called but I do know they were from Crafty Emma's Store as to were the flowers, the hat pin & the label die cuts. The cream rose I just inked up a little with 'Brushed Corduroy' distress ink & added diamond stickles around the edges.
Here is Tilda up close & personal...she has been coloured with Promarkers & Prismacolor, list of colours I will add to the end of this post. I have added diamond stickled to the fur of her coat & hat & added Crackle Accents to her lantern. The card she is on I cut out using 1 of my nesties & then stamped my new Magnolia 'Silent Night' stamp inked up with 'Brushed Corduroy' this is the stamp I have had for a couple of weeks I've got a few more still to get through & I gave hubby my crimbo list yesterday of crafting items that he can get me.......he's just gotta choose which 1s to get me lol.....its quite a list & there are still things from Magnolia I want yet....ooops. I have brought him a new touchscreen computer though & my list comes no-where near the same amount as that..........I'm trying to make myself sound better here is it working???? lol
The sentiment is from here & I just chopped it down a bit & inked the edges, everything that has been inked has been inked with the same colour distress ink.
I have tried to keep this tag quite simple & have left room for a message.
