Some of my docraft buddies came up for a playday this week. We were supposed to be making 3d flowers but I'd cut a few tags each so we had something to put them on. Thankfully I'd kept the tags out of sight until a couple of flowers had been made because once the tags were out all thoughts of floral went out the window as the sponges got to work with some inks.

Fab day as always but made especially fun with Kay & Tanya joining us for the first time. Even though it meant taking a day off of work and a really long way to come. Hope we havent put you off coming again ladies.

This is how messy we got after just a couple of tags.

As per normal on a playday I was up & down like a jack rabbit getting more & more stash to play with. Combined with pleas for more tags to decorate I didnt get a single tag made on Mon so I made these last night.

A sneaky peek with this one, woohooo Bird on a Branch from Stampin Up. Up until next month (hint hint) this was a US set only. I've needed this set for yonks after repeatedly seeing it on Michelle Zindorfs blog.

A couple of brown distress inks & en francais for the background before being stripped back with a mist of water and some heavy duty blotting.

Bird & tree from the new set, pocket silhouettes foreground folage & lavinia leaves stamped in close to cocoa & choc chip SU ink before sponging close to cocoa and a distress ink around the base.

This is one of those times where the colours arent a patch on real life. Thanks to perfect pearls this tag shimmers in real life and the colours really catch the mood of a violent sunset.

Nick Bantock, Distress & SU inks blended with enfrancais stamped in close to cocoa. PTI flourish with gold perfect pearls. Elusive Images floral stamp embossed with gold ep, coloured with hunter green & real red ink. It's supposed to be for a topper for a mothers day card but I don't think I'll be letting it go.
