Oops I've Tried Again !!


After my huge Boo boo the other day by creating a tag especially for the Art Journey Challenge (create a tag using mainly Art Journey Stamps) and using completely the incorrect stamp, which am so sorry about, I have tried again and this time I definitely know the stamp is by Art Journey, because I had my specs on............lol

The backing of the tag is material on cardboard and then run through an embossing folder, coloured with Distress Inks. Edged with Inca Gold. The main part of the tag has been alcohol inked and the stamp has been copper embossed. I was going to put some words on it, but couldn't make up my mind which to use.

I hope the Art Journey blog will accept this tag as a proper entry this time and I apologise for my error on the stamp previously used.

Hope you all have a terrific day and thank you for coming to see me even though the wine and chocolates are all now gone from Mothers Day, methinks we have an alcoholic chocolate mouse living with us who is downright greedy...........Catch up with you all later, take care, Annette x

Love this Annette. Such gorgeous colours, and that stamp is fabulous. I don't have any Art Journey stuff, but I think I might just need some.

Annette this is beautiful and such gorgeous colours. Have to say that the other stamp you used reminded me a lot of Art Journey stamps I was fooled !I have lot's of those pesky little mice in my house too but mine prefer gin to red wine obviously not a sophisticated palettes !

Have a great day.
