Mopping up!






Hi Folks and thanks for visiting today.   Our last challenge over at Try it on Tuesday was 'Use Your Stash'
and it really got me thinking how much 'stash' we have, be it stamps, papers or whatever.  I have a box of tags and papers that have mopped up inks, stains and  paints all waiting to be used, and found these which were perfect for this 'little angel' aren't they cute!  The images are all  from Artistic Outpost's  Diesel  Punk set, (AliCraft have reduced all their AO stamps on the website if anyone's interested, I thought it would be rude not to buy!)  My little boys wings are from Nicecrane's Colourful Butterflies which were stamped on vellum, and the girl's are a freebie stamp from CS magazine.

I am entering this at:
  Craft Room challenge - something Old and Something New (old mop up tags - new stamps)
  Natalie and Amy - Things with Wings
  Divas by Design - Tags

Thanks for looking,
Avril xx

Oh wow Avril, what a great way to use something old! These are fantastic. I really love the touches of bright colours against the neutrals! Very eye catching! hugs :)

What a fabulous way to use your inky stash, Avril! It looks like you spent hours designing and creating the backgrounds for your awesome tags! I love using the "mop up" papers, but sadly, I don't get inky that often so my stash of them is low. But I have plenty of other stash schtuff! (And I love your comment that it would "be rude not to buy!" That's how I got into this huge NBUS situation!!) Hugs, Darnell

Wonderful tags Avril! I wonder if I have a guardian angel and if I do, what he or she might look like. I picture a fat little fanny but that would surly slow down flight!
