Here she is in all her stripeyness...... I'm sure that's not a proper word! She is from Zettiology and her 'wings' are Hero Arts leaves, there are gems on her crown.

Recipe Tag: week 13

I'm on a roll - and up to date too!

The face stamp was bought on ebay a while back and coloured with chalks as I wanted a soft effect. The quote is by Cloud Nine and the leaves are puched and glued as a wreath (together with a few gems) with gel medium. The background is handmade paper with inlaid leaves which I have had for years.

...and just in case you had not noticed, unlike Sid's, this tag is very green!

Recipe tag: week 12

Still catching up...

Here is my offering for week 12 (face, eggs and gems).

Not very easter-like but I have had this Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers stamp for ages (from a mixed bag in their closing down sale) and this is the occasion to use it! I coloured the tag with Impress inks, stamped the egg box with Archival and lightly painted the eggs with gesso.

The face is Mona Lisa, bought on ebay. The text is gemmed up with tiny crystals.

Did you say I was cracked?
