Hare today

Good evening all, 
Can’t believe how quickly today has gone,,
Wow it has been cold...and I believe it is going to get colder..
Hope you had a lovely weekend,,
We went over to The Botanist in West Bridgeford where Mikey is now 
The Manager to have a family meal and a catch up...
(A definite proud parent moment )

Today , I though I would share another tag with you..
I made this one for a tag swap 

I started with a ready made tag from my stash...
And added some Distress Oxide ink and water...

I then dried the tag before adding more ink...
And then repeating with another colour of ink. 

I stopped when I was happy with the look of the tag .

Then I added some splats of Inka gold , and dried the tag once again. 

Next I added the hare...

This is such a lovely stamp  from Lavinia Stamps. 

Now to create the background
I used a moon mask from Clarity and some Black Distress Oxide ink ,
Plus some copier paper .

I also added some black ink around the edges to frame the tag. 

Next I stamped the grasses and hanging vines ...again from Lavinia Stamps 

I stamped the Hello , this is from a floral stamp set from Apple Blossom Stamps 
Which I used a few weeks ago at a workshop...
It is such a useful little stamp..
I then added a black border and some charcoal to make it look more 3d.

All it needed to finish it off was some ribbon, bakers twine and some dots of liquid pearls..

I do love making tags...
And I am really enjoying being part of a tag swap...
Before I go....
A little photo from the weekend. 

Our little man ready for his meal out...

Take care everyone,.
Keep warm...and stay safe 
Karl is away tonight , 
So I have Tess and Eric to look after me,,,

Love and hugs

Love the tag Jo & excellent step by step. Doesn't time fly when there is a baby in the family? Elliot is a gorgeous little fella. Is he on the move? If not he soon will be lol
Stay safe when/if the snow really hits.
