dispite snow...spring on my mind...

Dear bloggers,

I know, I know it has been a while......(turning red with shame) but I have been busy doing various things and to be honest I have been waiting for my new stamps from Tim Holtz to arrive......

I am happy to say that the first batch has found its way to my little craft room.

And to celebrate that fact I made a birthday tag with several of the new blue print stamps designed for Tim Holtz by Mario Rossi the Third. Am over the moon with this range.....
Can't wait for the rest to arrive in April.

I just love this stamp of the cupcake. Especially as I developed a bit of a hobby baking them myself.... I coloured it in with a water brush and distress ink. The sentiment is also from the new range which in my opinion was long overdue. I love sentiments and I love it even more the way Tim designed this set.
 
 
I stamped the cupcake twice. Once on the tag and once on white card stock. I cut out and coloured in the one on the white card stock and stuck it on the tag using 3D foam to give it some dimension. I love how the colours of the background turned out. So festive and happy.

This is just a simple tag I made as I used the tag itself to mop up the excess ink on my craft sheet..... I like the watercolour effect so much... The cattails I stamped with distress ink and brushed over some brown perfect pearls powder. Then sprayed with a mini mister to make the ink bleed. A black bird and a blue corner finished it off. A sentiment ticket to give it some power and I was done.
 
I am currently working on a scrapbook for a 70th birthday and I will post it as soon as it is done. In the mean time I will try and post some other projects.
 
Take care and see you soon.
