HOLIDAYS and TRAVEL..........

.................and a TAG!!!

Hi everyone it has been a while since I posted anything crafty here, I have been having a break enjoying catching up with family and friends, reading  lots..........yes including the trilogy of Basic Grey and several more books. Also spending time in my crafty room making inky mess with inks and sprays I now have backgrounds ready to go, wish I could say I have also been enjoying the summer weather......best not mention that............

With the latter 2 in mind I have made a Tag and will be sharing with

The Artistic Stamper Challenge Blog - Holidays
Happy Daze Design Team - Circling the World
Tando Creative Challenge Blog - Travel

On my Tag I have used a new (to me) Tim Holtz Die one of my favs Umbrella Man he has been on his Holidays Traveling around the world , good job he had is umbrella with him......he needed it as soon as he got back to the UK lol!

Umbrella Man was cut using TH co-ordinations paper sanded to make him look well traveled, background was made using distress inks stromy sky, mustard seed, weathered wood, stamps used TH in  black soot and vintage photo also as background colours, added embelishments and mounted my die cut onto foam.

Thanks for looking  until next time
