Gelli Plate and Lavinia Stamps

Hi ho bloggers. A quick post tonight to share this Tag with you.
I'm visiting Coventry, staying with my son and his family for this half term week.

I'm looking after my two Grandsons... well, I should be,
but they are out with their mates all the time and I've
 been left in peace to craft. I brought loads of 'kit' up with me.
Nine large bags and a HUGE suitcase on wheels, 
all full of crafty stash including a Gelli Plate!
So, I've been playing and having a great time.
 Acrylic Paint, a brayer (hard red plastic job not my Speedball)
A Gelli Plate, SplodgeAway Mask.  
Lavinia Stamps,Versafine inks, Shapeabilities Butterfly Die and a White Uni Posca Pen.
I love the Gelli Plate and will be playing again tomorrow!
Thank you for popping by my blog today.
see you soon.

Hi ho bloggers.
I've been busy all week making samples and getting all the 
project packs ready for my Workshop tomorrow.
My favourite project is the Acetate Tag 
using Art Journey Stamps, that I saw on the 
wonderful blog called  Stamping Mathilda.
Godelieve, very kindly gave me permission to reproduce the Tag
 so that my ladies attending the class could enjoy creating it. 

Pop back on Sunday to see how they got on in the class!
Thank you very much for all the 
super comments that you are leaving about my work. 
I enjoy reading every one of them

Clarity Stamps and Distress Inks Tag

Hi ho Bloggers! Phew, I've been so busy
Ironing (yuk) and crafting (Yay!)
Quick Tag to share with you today.
I created the background using the negative shape 
of a Nestabilities Circle.  

I blended the distress inks, through the aperture
that I had left, after die cutting the circle.
All the stamps are from the Clarity Stamps range
The images were stamped onto the tag 
with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

A few dots, dabbed here and there with a 
White Uni Posca Pen.....Job done!  
Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any comments you kindly leave for me .
Two of my friends have both started new blogs this weekend!
Please pop over and have a look when you get a moment.
Super work from Pauline and Karen
