Sunday Stampers Week 222 Colour- Friday 14th Sept

Good Morning Blog Friends!

I'm pleased you liked my photos of the Olympians yesterday and thank you for all your comments. It was a truly memorable day and yes, I was very emotional!

Yesterday we had a day at home catching up with work on the path around the coop in the garden, luckily the weather was glorious! Last night was our first workshop for this month (we have two this month). If any of my group from last night are checking, look out for a second post this afternoon, when I'll be posting the photos!

Today I am sharing my Sunday Stampers project for this week: an easy peasy tag, as I've not  had much craft time this week with us being on our stay at home hols! The theme for Sunday Stampers this week is colour - I was going to go for a  multi coloured smorgasbord,  but coincidentally I have a Design Team card to show over the weekend, which has a multi coloured theme, so for this one I chose one colour and that colour is blue, not shades of grey :), shades of blue...

I had some card left over from a previous project where I had used mica sprays over a mask, so I cut this into a tag shape and then using a  leaf stamp from Studio 490's Wendy Vecchi, Love to Make Art set, I stamped the leaf on the tag, using Broken China distress ink. I also stamped this leaf again on separate card and cut it out. Then I stamped the heart from the same set, on plain card,  dark turquoise paper, pale acqua paper with a tiny dotty pattern and a blue/white floral paper. I used these to paper piece the heart.

My final bit of stamping, was the wings from Sam Poole's Steam Punk Dreams dress form and a sentiment from Sam Poole's Art Sayings set. I then stuck the leaves to the back of the card, added a little piece of scrap from one of the cut outs and some ribbon to the top and bottom and covered the back with another tag to tidy.

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping and leaving a comment! Check back after mid-day for news from last night's workshop!
