Port Sunlight...

Hi and thanks for looking in today....hope you have had a lovely weekend...

It was the Port Sunlight Happy Stampers show yesterday....this is such a great show....a magnificent venue and is a great place to meet up with friends and grab a bargain or two.....o.k. Or three....

As always it didn't disappoint ....

There were a few of us found loitering around the Clarity stand....Barbara and Maria did brilliant demonstrations as always. One of the crafters Susan, who comes to my Edgeley workshops at CJ Cardcraft managed to get an original piece of art work crafted by Barbara.....then she went back to have this photo taken....Looking good ladies....

Back to today.......I am sharing a little tag With you that I made for the last TV show...

It started life as tag painted with Aqua Tints and then sprinkled with salt and left to dry...I do love the effect that this gives...

Next some stamping....and then I added some interest into the background using Jo's Bubbled stencil and white ink...

The new Floral Boquet stamp...designed by the lovely and talented Julie Owens..has three separate flower heads with it...these are just perfect to stamp , colour , cut out and decoupage...

Some ribbon and a wooden bow finish off the design..

It is amazing how much texture you can achieve on a little tag..

Right better check on the dinner ......time to walk Tess and Eric...before we eat..

Thanks for looking in today...have a good week...and pop back soon...

Hugs,

Jo. X

  2. Great tag! I used to paint on silk and this technique of dropping salt onto the paint always worked well, never thought to try it on card. I had to rock salt on silk is it the same on card? Happy walking! Xx
