Friday Focus

I've had a bit of inky time to create a tag for the STAMPlorations NovemberTheme & Sketch Challenge.

I've very loosely used the sketch but whole heartedly embraced the stamps and tags.

I started by die cutting the tag and then adding the sunflower and words.  I then used a stencil to ink up some circles to represent the diamonds from the sketch. And I almost stopped there.

But having walked away from the tag for a while I came back and added the splodges and circle stamps, some more ink and also worked on the edges in black.  I coloured the flower and added some nuvo drops and enamel dots. Quite a bit more then!

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Sunflower, Imagine, Art Marks
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, fossilized amber, picked raspberry; Ranger distress, black soot
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched traditional tags
Stencil: ARTplorations, Bubbles
Pens: Copic, R22, R24, R29
Embellishmsnts: Nuvo drops, ebony black; Doodlebug Sprinkles, love asst; SU enamel shapes, peekeaboo peach; ribbon from my stash

Thanks so much for dropping by today, I've really enjoyed your company.  And keep crafting!
