Mellow Yellow....

Hi I'm back with another Tag to share....

I used distress pads in shades of yellow....Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber.  Using a 'bubble' stencil I coloured around the corners with Iced Spruce used transparent embossed paste through the same stencil add some texture and while wet I dabbed with my finger. Once dried I went over the texture with Iced Spruce again to bring it 'out'. I splattered a bit (maybe too much) with Perfect Pearls and applied tiny bits of silver 'Flitter Flakes' to add more shine.  The stamp is by Indigo Blu.  I finished with some TH Chit Chat words.
I am entering this for this month Challenge over at More Mixed Media which just happens to be 'Shades of Yellow'
Why not pop over and have a go yourself ;D..

Spring Flower.....??

Hi Guys....well what happened to Spring?...seems to have gone back to winter today in my neck of the woods...a dull drab day...

Anyway... I thought I would have a go at the new challenge over at the Craft Stamper Magazine.  I haven't entered this one before so I hope my little offering is what they had in mind.

I'm not sure what flower it is...I found this stamp in my local craft shop (limited stock which is disappointing).  It's by Elusive Images.
I stamped on multi media card, painted with Distress pads...shaded the edges with the same and splashed about a bit with very watered down inks.  I also used  a Tim Holtz stencil around the sides but its very faint I didn't want to make it a feature just a hint...Then as I wanted a bit of pearly shine, I used Perfect Pearls mixed with water  and sprayed that over.  Unfortunately the camera doesn't pick up that but it has given the tag a lovely pearly misty look....I finished with co ordinating ribbons.  I had to sit on my hands so I didn't start adding embellishments...I was tempted with sequins and pearls but I wanted the flower to be the main
