Hi everyone I thought I would try blogging on the move
We are on our way to Cornwall and as usual Nick
Has managed to miss the turning of to Salsbury
and we are now heading to Southampton
Well I did this card in the week I took a craft tag and stamped the
Tim holtz collage page stamp onto it with black archival ink.
I then highlighted areas with white gel pen Around the
edges I blended faded jeans distress ink.
I used a Tim holtz paper with butterflies on and coloured
these with red brick and spiced marmalade
Distress Staines .
Then I used rock candy distress stickles on the wings.
The rock candy picked up the colour of the butterflies
An gold triple embossed strip was used
Stick on and frame the butterfly name.
Tha dah! As Boots would say one card done. I hope you have
Enjoyed this half on the go blog.

Hi everyone! I have been quite lately but have had a bit of a play today,
and out of it came this card.
Firstly I put glitter paste through a circle stencil.
Once dry I painted a grey board square with Nougat and
snowflake Fresco Finish paint.
I then introduced baltic blue and Mocha mousse, knocking it
back with nougat if it got to intense.
I then inked up the Jofy collection 09 plate with Ranger Archival
Once this was done I painted the buds with Claret and Rose Fresco
Taking a white gelli pen I then followed the lines and highlighted
I put a bit of white fire treasure gold on my finger and highlighted
the glitter paste circles.
I poped this onto navy blue backing card then stuck it all onto
A square card.
Ta dah! all done hope you all enjoyed this simple card
Thank you for stoping by and please feel free

Firstly I coloured a craft tag with distress ink in weathered wood
bundled sage and peacock feathers and a touch of
vintage photo, which I then ran it under a tap.
I cut out a piece of garden sack and coloured it with
little black dress Fresco Finish paint.
I then inked up a manila tag with tea dye, walnut and black soot
Distress inks. The compass stamp was stamped again on white card and a
diamante gem fixed to the centre.
The compass stamp was stamped again on white card and a

and stamped it all over the tag also a Tim Holtz stamp from the
Steampunk plate. I applied Tim's tissue tape to the
bottom left of the smaller tag.
At the top right there is a Lynne Perrella Collection 004 stamp
underneath the Tim Holtz Film strip. all held together by a
antique copper eyelet and brad.also a s
crew brad in the hole at the top.
