Still Decorating!

Hello there. I hope you have had a lovely weekend and the weather has been as good there as it has been here.

We are still decorating but the good news is the wall paper is all off-Hurray!!!, the paintwork is rubbed down and we are ready to start putting things right again. Thank goodness for that. I might actually get some proper crafting time in a few days.

In the meantime I've got another tag to show you using another Crafters Workshop stencil. This one is Mini Windsong and is one of my favourites.

I inked the background with a coarse mesh-like fabric using Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans distress inks which gave a speckled effect. The stencilling was done with Faded Jeans and the flourishes were stamped with Crimson Brilliance ink which I then wiped round all the edges just to soften them.

I stamped the wording on a separate piece of card and cut round it and then stuck a piece of burgundy organza ribbon on top and put it all on the tag at a jaunty angle just to be different.

Well I'm off to indulge in a bar of chocolate my kind Husband bought me, a treat for all our hard work, yes I will share it and I hope those of you just starting the Easter school hols like us have a relaxing time, lets hope the weather holds.

That is so beautiful! I have the Windsong stencil too! I must try it with distress inks as the detail is a bit too fine for the colour sprays to do it justice. Hope the decorating goes to plan and you are able to enjoy some crafting time x

This tag is just gorgeous Lisa, love those soft colours. I am SO glad it's you doing the decorating not me, I hate it and always get more paint on me than on the walls. Good luck!
