Wise Owl......

October already I must have blinked and someone stole September. We are still clearing and sorting so not much crafting time for me over the last few weeks but hopefully I will be back crafting and blogging more this month ......today I sneaked into the room of crafty -mess......yes it is still untidy but my desk is cleared......and I made this tag with a new Stamp Set from IndigoBlu Hocus Pocus which I bought mainly for the Owl Image.....

Edited photo Tuesday morning although dull and raining a much better result.....flash altered the colours in the original one I posted
Photo colours could be better.......it was dark and the flash seems to have changed the colours a little....sorry. 
Background Distress Inks  Rusty Hinge, peeled paint, vintage photo . I stamped images in Adirondak Ink Esspresso, when dry I added splashes of DI rusty hinge and vintage photo with ink left on sponge, ribbon was coloured using rusty hinge and vintage photo.
Over at Sunday Stamper Hels is asking us to make something that makes us happy.........tags make me happy as they give me quick fix crafting when I don't have much time but want to craft, I also love Owls and New Stamps so making this tag made me very happy lol.

I will also be playing at The Cupboard Trilogy - Challenge #4 -Things with Wings

'till next time thanks for dropping in at my blog
