Hearts & Tags

Hi All,

Can't believe its almost a week since I last posted!  I thought I was at last getting over this horrible cold bug, and this week swollen glands and earache! Anyhow, enough of my moans, I'm feeling much better now and hopefully the crafting will resume!!

I love the look of tags, but never seem to make them, so when I saw the challenge at Try It On Tuesdays was a tag..... so last night I got  messy with  Rose acrylic paint,  Vanilla custard spray(Dylusions) and then smuged with copper  paint daber.  Looked at bit pink, so after going through the CB distressed with Peeled Paint and some Gold EP and of course another of those fab egshell hearts!

I am going to enter this tag in :
   Try It On Tuesdays - Tag with hearts and flowers
    Fussy & Fancy - With all My Heart
    The Stamp Man - Texture
    Totally Papercrafts - Ribbon/Bow
    DYSU - Layers
    Freshly Brewed - Love
    Joanna Sheen - Love is in the Air
    Make My Monday - Hearts & Flowers
    Simon Says - Tag

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking.

Avril xx

Hello Avril its been so long since I caught up on all my blogging buddies there is so much to see here!
This tag is beautiful, Lisa actually gave me a card with the eggshell heart and I love them! I love the green dress card below because green is my favourite colour and its never used enough in card making but my absolute favourite is the altered box! Its stunning and will make a treasured keepsake!

Sorry you didn't feel well :(

Heather said...

I don't create tags often either. For some reason those and ATCs are a challenge for me.. but when I do I also love to get out the paint and different embellies and go wild. Love all of the textures on your tag.

Thank you for joining us this week for our RED HOT challenge at

Hope to see you at our rubber stamp release hop on Saturday.
