Letter G

Hello again everyone, I can hardly believe that it's Tuesday again already! 
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my F tag last week. Everyone did tip-top work and I always love to see what you have done. I am back in full swing this week, having bid the lurgy good riddance. Yippee!

I would like to dedicate this tag to Anne Redfern, aka Redanne, of bollyanne.blogspot.co.uk/
Anne is so very talented and inspirational and generously shares her friendship, time, expertise, advice and all other good things you can think of I'm sure you'll agree. And she does it all so very quietly,
Personally I have learnt so much from her and appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Anne :0) *HUGS* xx

This week on TT we are up to the letter G and for me, G is for Gift.


I covered the tag with gesso and then sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer mists in Teal & Purple. The various stamps I used are from Papermania or are freebies. I coloured them with pro-markers, DI, Stickles, Cosmic Shimmer mists, and some light embossing. The G (from K & Company) is spattered with Purple Shimmer mist and the the chipboard 'sunflower' over the tie is coloured with yellow acrylic paint, the centre is burnt orange pro-marker and is covered with glossy accents. The ribbon/tie is one of those you often find inside a t-shirt or jumper. Thanks for looking, stay well & have a wonderfully crafty week :0) *hugs* Mo xx
