More Dylusions, more tags...

Hiya :)

I have some more tags to show you today, I just felt like messing about & seeing what I could come up with. So I got a couple of tags and used Dyan's method to lay on my base of Dylusions and got to work.

I decided to work on a theme, can you guess what it is?

The lack of sunshine in what is supposed to be Summer here in Britain at the moment is utterly lamentable, so this is me, lamenting it.

Because I was playing, I took elements of the above tag that I particularly liked and made another one...

I'm particularly loving the twinkling H2Os (remember them?! I bought mine about 5 years ago, just the one set, in VERY bright colours, & guess what? hardly used them, glad I kept hold of them now though!) over the top of the inked flowers and the use of correction tape under the stamped sentiment, an idea I got from Julie over on Notes on Paper

Finally, because i had a tag left over from a previous make and a few leftover bits on my craft desk, I made this...

Yes. There it is, the sun, in Texas or Nevada or somewhere, being lovely & hot and sunny and NOT HERE :(

So yeah, my last tag is from leftovers, pretty cool huh? Well I think so anyway!!

Oh, and Dyan if you're designing any more stamp collections, can I have cacti & raindrops please?! Ta!! ;)

Thanks for sticking with, hope the sun is shining on you!

Out of the box stampotique

'Allo 'allo!

Urg! Rain rain go away! Seriously. I'm not one to moan about the weather but my patience is being sorely tried. It's beyond a joke now. I'm on holiday in a few weeks and I'd really like it to brighten up by then. Thank you.

Okay, so on to my latest make!

It's a "little clip holder to keep my scraps of super smooth together for testing out pro-marker combinations" phew! that's a bit of a mouthful, if anyone comes up with something a bit pithier do let me know ;)

Essentially it's a clothes peg sandwiched between two die cut labels. Wanna see?

In Situ

I had loads of fun with this, it took a few days to make because I had to think about how I wanted it to look, it didn't quite end up the way I originally intended and *whisper* I think I like the back better than the front!!!

I used stampotique stamps & lots of scraps from the depths of my stash, I also had a go at colouring my own seam binding, it went a bit muddy...

I would like to enter this for the Stampotique "Out of the Box" challenge & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Make a label or ATC"

Thanks for looking, hope it's not raining on you too!
