STILL PLAYING CATCH UP...

What a glorious couple of days we have had here, much less sticky and just pleasantly summery. Still having to get in to my craft room early though as the sun beats in all through the middle of the day and gets too hot - a good time to go out and enjoy the garden though!!

Anyhow, two more things I've managed to squeeze in here and there. Firstly a tag for Tuesday Taggers. This week's challenge is sponsored by the Craft Barn and the theme was 'Distress' a la the master Mr Holtz. I dutifully watched the recommended tutorial (and a few others, once you start you can't stop and then I had to go back and watch the first one again because I'd forgotten what I was supposed to be doing) and did a crumple distress background for the tag. I'm not sure that the rest of it is very distressed, but I got very distressed stamping it. The only ink that seems to stay wet enough to stamp in this heat is Stazon. Anyhow had fun playing about with my distress inks and spritzers and made quite a few background papers that can be used.



I've also managed to make an ATC for Art Creations Friday. Another beautiful image this week, although I'm not sure I've done her justice, just may have to use her again sometime.

Both are great and I do think you have done the ACF image justice! I had n't discovered the Tuesday tag challenge until just yesteday, so I'll have to check it out, I love making tags, and I so know what you mean about Tim's videos, they are addictive.

Holidays just about to start, can't wait lol. Oh and by the way, thanks for all your lovely comments on my Flickr.

Take care, your craftwork is always inspiring!!!
