'Dream' Tag

Hi, it's been a while since I last did a blog entry but with having a fab week in Cornwall, a few odd days out in the Campervan, lots of gardening and a wonderful few days in Ireland visiting our gorgeous Grandchildren there hasn't been an awful lot of spare time. Ooh and I forgot to mention -  the odd bit of crochet--------

Anyway back to the job in hand! Over on the Creative Carte Blanche Blog their theme for August is Sun, Moon and /or Stars so here is my entry for this month.

I started with a large manilla tag which was coloured with various Pan Pastels, this was then lightly sprayed with Jackson's Pastel Fixative.

Next I stamped the shimmering moon by Clarity Stamps in VersaMark ink and rubbed the stamped image with Pewter Pan Pastels. 

Dream was then stamped underneath in Versafine Onyx Black and then clear heat embossed.

The stars were added using Grunge Paste through a That's Crafty Dinky Stencil, once dry lightly sanded and then the clean stencil was replaced and the stars coloured in the centres using Treasure Pewter wax.

The ivy was stamped using peeled Paint Distress Ink and a Lavinia Stamp. 

Recently we have had some beautiful sunsets and star lite skies and this gave me the colour tones to work with for this entry. Hope you are all enjoying the summer sunshine that we have been finally blessed with as up until now the summer has been rather dull --- so long may it last.

Enjoy the rest of the week and hopefully you too will find some free time to have a 'Play" and maybe join in the Creative Carte Blanche challenge. Bye for now,  Jane X
