G is for Grass green grass of home

Morning All and thank you for popping in

The weather has changed here today - cold and wet but the
garden needs some rain....

Had to make a dash to the shops and bank this morning so a bit later
putting this on ...

Here is my card for today -

I am continuing to use the Tag Theme for The Craft Barn challenge

I first decided to use up some of my card stock from the other day.

Made a tag and stamped with Clarity Stamp Grass Stamps using black
archival inks

Used paints watercolour and cosmic shimmer paints to make 
the tag.

See the grasses have a shimmer on them.
Added brush strokes of grasses to give a better feel for all the

Added a green ribbon and definition 

Enjoyed making this tag - I got in the zone and was able to 
chill out. Think I need to go now and start some painting
absorb myself in my art work.... got so much going on in my head today
from yesterday... hay ho

Hope you like it

and would like to enter it for the following

Thank you for popping in and I look forward to
seeing you again.

Take care

  1. Beautiful tag. The background is wonderful, it looks like such an atmospheric cloudy sky. Love the way you added the shimmer to lift some of the grasses. Take care, Cara x

  2. Your tag takes over my mind and puts me into the middle of a beautiful Spring field of new grasses to romp around in. I remember doing that as a kid when the grasses were up to our waists! I love your tag!
