WOYWW/Tuesday Taggers/Friday

How can it be Friday already - I missed the WOYWW doh! Here it is better late than never.


Last weekend I visited Tetbury with a friend and we spent a lovely morning browsing through the antique shops. My friend had previously bought herself an old printing block so I was looking out for one also and managed to find this one.





This is what it printed out like - it needed full on ink to get an impression - its very cleverly made as there is a notch in the one end so you can interlink the images - here's the work in progress at the moment.



I found a new challenge blog on my travels called Less is More - you can find it here

They've asked to keep things simple and to use the colours Black White and Pink. I had to make a sympathy card today so I think this fits the bill perfectly.

I promised to do a tag with hearts and flowers for the Tuesday Taggers - and here it is. I'm also including it in the Craft Challenge here and the Shabby Tea Rooms here and Rainbow Lady's challenge here


I used flower soft on the edges of the flower - looks a bit like broken egg shell!

My flower was inspired by a gorgeous gift I received from a blogger I found via OWOH. Cameron has a wonderful blog paintmyselfpretty and I found her on my travels - wandered into her shop and saw the most gorgeous canvas painting of a unicorn for my daughter's birthday - I'm safe writing about it on here cause she never reads my blog! I received the painting yesterday from Cameron along with these lovely goodies - her flower inspired mine for the tag.

Oh wow, that is really stunning and so clever. I love what you've done with it

Julia Dunnit said...

That block is lovely - and I love how you've made the frame with it. A guy I once worked for used metal blocks and always stamped with a couple pieces kitchen tissue under his paper to allow for depth differences, did you find the need or does it stamp flat? Gorgeous flower projects too - looks like you're back at full on crafter gal!
