Tag Time and B is for Beach!

B is Beach- another of Efemera's Tag Challenges!
I used my new Bombshell Hula Girl stamps for this tag.
I stamped the Hula girl, islands and bird with flowers separately then coloured them in with Copic Ciaos and Pro Markers.
The tag was coloured with a mix of blue and green Distress Inks then a light coat of blue/green Lumiere paint was sponged over the top for a bit of shimmer.
I stamped random images from the Hula Girl set all over the tag in a darker shade of blue ink.
I added Making Memories tapes to the tag as they had an Hawaii theme!
I added my cut out stamped images to the tag- Hula Girl was stuck on with silicon glue so she was raised up from the tag.
I added bright Prima flowers and QuicKutz letters and the tag was done!

C is for Circus

Efemera posted another Tag challenge and I'm loving working my way through them- I fond they are a good mojo boost :)
This was C for Circus and I wanted to include some circus freaks- hence creating my own bearded lady!!! I do hope she will not mind!

Slice Stuff!

This is from a LO I did using shapes from my Just Chillin' Slice Design card.
I heat embossed them with gold powder and stamped into the powder while it was still warm.
