Easter Sunday...

...So I've had a little time off work which has given me the opportunity lately to check out blogs and stumble upon new ones...there is a lot of eye candy out there I just wish I had more time to blog hop. Anyway I discovered Hels Sheridans's blog yesterday...love it simples...she looks like she's got the same coloured fingertips as me most of the time judging by the gorgeous creations she has on her blog.

So I decided today after I'd spent the morning ironing and cleaning that I would take part in her Sunday stamper challenge...you can so tell I'm off work because I can't remember that last time I took part in an online craft challenge...so the theme was numbers oh and obviously stamping...I came up with this little tag...

I have used the ink and water "swoosh" method to colour my tag, dried then dabbed it on the inkspots again, applied distress ink through some punchinella and stamped to create my background. Ive then heat embossed a clock and a ticket (which both have numbers on) added some distress inked die cuts, stamped a sentiment and die cut some Tattered flowers from calico, which were then, along with the ribbon and lace, dyed with distress ink again...Can you tell what colour my fingers currently are!!!

Do you want to see my new stash :-)...

Look at all those Ranger goodies, I've re-inked my dry distress inks, I've filled my little Ranger bucket with all my essential, need them to hand tools, I've ran my Tattered flowers die through my Cuttlebug and I'm planning on creating a canvas this evening...good eh!!!

Right I'm off to perfect my Sunday dinner after I've sandpapered my fingers clean...Happy Easter everyone.

GORGEOUS tag... love all those fabby elements, makes it perfect... hope you got your fingers clean... now, have you tried a Craft Scrubbie? Tis a Ranger product, like a little pumice stone, pop a bit of liquid handwash on it, rub on fingers, removes ink, no one knows you have been crafting (perfect for those sneakily grabbed minutes of artyness lol) Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper! Hope to see you again soon x

It is a very satisfied feeling, don't you think, when you have messy inky fingers? Your tag is really beautiful. I think you will gets lots of use from your tattered flower die too.
