I went to my art class this morning but wasn't happy with anything I produced there - we painted a silver birch, a small sea scene, some pebbles and a post in water but I will have to redo them all when I am feeling a bit better.
Have had a go at the tags today too but again they aren't my best efforts!
I know the first tag has come out really dark in the picture but this is the one that is actually fine in real life!! I used Chipped Sapphire, Barn Door, Gathered Twigs and Wild Honey distress inks and the stamps are from T!ms Artful Flight set.
For the second and third tags I used Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed stains with Faded Jeans stain on the first one and Broken China stain on the second and the stamps are T!ms Haberdashery set. My Picket Fence images didn't come out well at all so I didn't even bother heat setting them - these are the tags I will retry again when I get better cardstock.
For the last tag I again used a Manilla Shipping Tag but I have to confess that I have managed much better results than this in the past on a plain cream cardstock but I am fairly happy with it to go in my Technique book as is. I used Picket Fence, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Broken China stains and the stamps are from T!ms Nature's Discovery set.
Thanks for looking - All Bunged Up from Solihull
EDITED to add:
I have just relooked at my post and can't possibly leave you all looking at the dark and dingy first tag so here it is after a bit of tweeking:
the birdie is actually perched on a nest! Oh for a bit more sunshine so we can take better photos eh!
