Pretty in Pink, Sunday Stampers week 307 - Friday 16th May

Hello Friends,

I had one of those infuriating craft days today, when everything I attempted ended in disaster! Mr Mojo had decided to take a day off just when I had the chance to craft all day and really needed him here!

It was a lovely day though wasn't it? I did go outside this afternoon and do a bit of work on the old chair that I've been working on out in the craft summerhouse. Actually I finished it, there isn't much to show for all my painting and waxing, but I will post it one day soon!

Today it's time for  Sunday Stampers, for fill deets head over to Hels Sheridan's blog..this week Hels set the theme to include pink in our projects and after several dire attempts with various stamps, this is the tag I made...

I inked the tag all around the edges using Picked Raspberry and Tea Dye distress inks and then I stamped  tiny flowers (Majestix stamps) all around, again using Picked Raspberry.

The butterfly stamp is by Lavinia- I stamped  it directly on to the tag (more Picked Raspberry) and heat embossed clear. Then I stamped it again on to white card,heat embossed and added glitter. Finally I stamped it twice on to acetate. I heat embossed using WOW! Embossing powder for lots of sparkle and cut the butterfly out and glued to the tag.

To finish off, I glittered the edges using stickler and tied a bow at the top, also added some wired pearls.

Last night's Out of the Blue craft group was another big success, with lots more lovely chocolate bar wrappers made by the ladies...I will be sharing the photos tomorrow,

Bye for now,

Love and Hugs,
Carole XX
