I'm back from my childminding stint. It was exhausting but a pleasure ... my grandchildren are lovely and the dog is cute. Call me daft but I took a fully kitted crafting tote with me ... needless to say it was never opened and no crafting was done. I was much too busy and then exhausted for that :)
However, just before I went, I did manage to complete this tag for the UKPC May Swap ... the theme was indigo ... to be interpreted any which way we liked.
I started with a base of white card, stamped the main image using VersaMark and Stampendous clear embossing powder. Next, it was sponged all over with denim blue Gentle Blends, by Pinflair and buffed up with a tissue to remove as much as possible from the stamped image.
I've finished the edges of the tag with the gilding wax before adhering it to a base of the blue textured card - also edged with silver - and decorated the 'hair' on the image with blue gems. The fibres are from a very useful stash I have tucked away in the craft room.
The 'mis'quote - 'with grace in her heart, and flowers in her hair' is from a Mumford and Sons number, After the Storm, hence the title of this post. For those interested here's a link with the official lyrics : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWYG7lZBc6U
It's a sad number but beautiful to listen to despite that.
I've made myself late for Pointless so I'm off to see what's left. I'll be back later because I have a ton of catching up to do :)
I hope you are all well and having a good week so far.
