D is for - Dandelion with a pink sky.

Afternoon all hope you have a great day today
the sun is shining. 

Had a lovely time out in the garden yesterday although I 
have a few aches and pains this morning. 

Hopefully will have another go out in the garden later today. 

Here is my "card" today - a tag

I have been making background papers / tags using up 
Ken Oliver Bursts paints on my glass mat....
it doe surprise me how I get so many different effects.

 But first

I stamped the Sheena Douglass Dandelion stamp in black on the tag

Then I painted, splattered and dabbed the tag with paints from my glass mat.
Spraying the tag with water to create the effect I wanted.

Then used  Sheena Douglass Stencil to make the flowers in the foreground
using the ink still left on my smoothie - black soot. Still so much left 
to use up. I very rarely wash my smoothies as always want to  use up the 
very last of the inks. 

Added three birds to the corner, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons out of my stash, definition 
and there it is.

Tried to get a feel of the sky behind the flowers with the pink sky, 
and do notice the definition is also mounted onto pink card.

Hope you like it

I would like to enter it for the following 


The Craft Barn Alpha / dictionary challenge - D is for + Pink

Thank you for popping over to my blog today.

I am going to make a cuppa and then out in the garden for an hour.

Need that time to relax and get my hands dirty ..... weeding is calling me.

The birds are starting to make nests here - so funny to see the robin having a
barney with the wren - both wanting the same hole...

Well thats it for now.

  16. Gorgeous background - our evening sky yesterday was just like this, with trees silhouettes rather than dandelions. Beautiful.
