Bee Crafty Stamps & Inkables, Distress inks, WOW embossing powder on a tag.

Hi folks,

I hope you all had a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend,I can't believe it's nearly the end of August already, where does all the time fly to, lol!!

I am very excited, on Thursday this week, I am lucky to have managed to bag myself a place at the workshop in Coventry, run by the very famous, very talented, and my crafting hero, Tim Holtz. I just hope I shall be able to take in what he teaches us, and not be too starstruck.....!!!!! I shall be telling you all about it, sometime next week, when I come back down from the clouds, so watch this space!!!!

Today's share is a tag I made a little while ago, using Bee Crafty products.

I used the 'Cow Parsley' and the 'Ferns' stamps from the 'Beautanicals' range,
and the sentiment stamp 'Joy is a flower' is from their 'Wordage' range.

The background was made using Distress inks and a mask, and then I stamped the flower randomly in black, let it dry, and then again in Versamark with WOW white sparkle embossing powder. The leaves were again stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in green pearl, the sentiment was heat embossed in a vibrant pink, lol.
I felt it needed a butterfly, so found one in my stash.

Right I'm off to do some crafting, and I shall start thinking about which tools I need to take with me to use when I'm drooling over 'Sir Tim's' words!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit, and also for your fabulous comments.

See you soon, Hugs, Pauline xxx
