T is for .....

A very good afternoon to you all today. 

How are you doing? 

Been into town this morning - was quite busy I have to say. The Bank got me 
"confused" - wanted to take me to the "in the wall" thingy. If I wanted that I would have 
gone there.... and when I said 
NO - I need the book stamped. She then took my book and ripped out the 
"filled in bit" waving it around and finally gave it to the cashier. 

Just what I was going to do !!! 

Then I forgot to get money out only remembering to do it once I was right down the other
end of the High Street :) 

On a good note I did walk over 2 miles !!!

Anyway here is my card for today 

which is a tag 

First I used up inks that were on my blending mat and made several sheets of backing papers.

Then I stamped using grey permanent ink the Toadstool from Clarity Stamps

I then used masking fluid to mask off the toadstool 

and then blotted the tag with the inks left on the blending mat.

Rubbed off the masking fluid 

Coloured in the Toadstool with Aqua pencils 

Added a hint of Cosmic Shimmer paint and a bit of red acrylic paint 
on the snail  

Added definition 

Hope you like it 

I have made it for the following 


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