After a break from crafting for what seems ages, I found time to join in with the first ever Artful Times Challenge. A brand new challenge blog recently started by three lovely people, Neet, Sam and Von, so I just had to make some thing to join them at the beginning of their exciting new venture and their first ever topic is to make a tag.
I sneaked in the word first into my tag and used my first favourite stamp from Crafty Individuals. I think this little girl has such a wistful look and having three grandees aged four and under, I am quite biased towards little girlies.
The background is coloured with a combination of Adirondack ink pads and Glimmer Mist sprays. I swiped the fine lace along an ink pad to blend it in with the overall look. The tiny flowers were punched from card coloured to match the tag and shaped with a ball tool.
Pop over to ARTFUL TIMES to see lots more entries and join in if you can as there are still a few days left before the closing date for their very FIRST challenge.
GOOD LUCK to ARTFUL TIMES!
I've now crocheted 144 granny squares for my Afghan blanket, thanks to all the travelling up and down the motorways ....It's looking good but now I just need to join them!
Do you waste time? I try really hard not to so it is rewarding for me to have something lovely to use and treasure as a result of converting waste time into this Afghan.
