Tag Tuesday- metallic

Its tag Tuesday at Kard Krazy and Louise has given us the challenge to use metallic in our tags. I used metal tape and ran it thru my cuttlebug ,painted it with gesso ans sanded it. I punched the letters for the text into a scrap, thought it would be appropriate for a metal tag. LOL .Hard to show up in the photo tho.Topped it off with a garter belt clip. heehee

Welcome to my Gallery/Studio. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy your visit. My Gallery/Studio is divided into 3 rooms. You enter the Gallery portion So I started with these pictures first. The room is divided by a wood beamed wall that enters my Studio, this is where all my creating gets done. The third room is where I store my paints and tools (We won't be going there!!!) Not to much to see... theres about 300 gallons of paint and tools,stains,brushes etc. So lets get started shall we?

Tag Tuesday- Embossing

It was fun to pull out that embossing powder collecting dust in my drawer. I forgot how pretty some of them are. I chose a violet color, although I don't know if it shows up in the picture. The stamp is from Hero Arts.I used purples and pink inks on glossy cardstock for my background. See all the entries at Kard Krazy
