Monochrome bunting

Today I have some bunting to share which is for the UK stampers forum swap. The theme for this swap is Monochrome, so I went for the turquoise colours as my monochrome.

I stamped the beach hut from Marlene using the archival inks and then used distress crayons to watercolour the image. I also added some ink blending round the edge and a little bit of stamping to provide some texture. I then splattered the art alchemy sparks paints to give it some shimmer. Next I added the hand stamped sentiment and edged it with some Inktense.

I love this image and the gentle finish this bunting had.

It’s been a fun swap to get involved in and I’ve loved creating the flags and receiving some fun bunting in return.

Happy crafting!

Tag art with Marlene

This past weekend I went to Middlesborough to meet with a friend and attend a class with Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk. I had a fab time.

Here is what I made…

Fab mixed media tags… fun to make a some good ideas that I hadn’t thought of before… always good to get new inspiration.

And such a lovely bunch of people I spent time with…

Plus I had a bit of a spending spree in the shop and bought some bargains…

Plus… to make the whole weekend I spent time with the gorgeous Darcy…

Just love this girl so much!

So all in all a great weekend.

Happy crafting!
