About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Stampman Challenge - Bingo

Really wanted to enter The Stampman Challenge this time but was having Bingo Block! So I just went ahead and made a tag anyways and hoped the ingredients would "find themselves". I love green so that was a good start, then flowers too but swirls just didn't make it into the mix.............. My ribbon is polka dotted but I guess you can't count that as fabric aswell - hmmmmm. Then - eureka - I realised the button is a circle!! YIPPEE So Green, Circle and Ribbon it is then, with a few polka dots and flowers thrown in for good measure - LOL. And some alcohol inked acetate butterflies with bead bodies (set using pins to hold beads in place - been wanting to try that for ages). My forsythia is in full bloom at the moment so just had to use that paper today too. Phew - think I have made it by the skin of my teeth.  BJ

A beautiful tag BJ! It's really delicate and so spring like. I love the background and the butterflies are very clever!

Me again! Forgot to say: you'll have to show me how to do those butterflies - alcohol inks are a mystery to me (that is what you used isn't it?!).

A very pretty tag BJ, perfect colours for Spring and well done for getting a line on the bingo card. Thanks for linking to the Stamp Man and good luck.
