Tag,and a painting,

Hi guys,
Well hope you all enjoyed the celbrations of the wedding yesterday oh how,stunning did Kate,look that dress was,gorgeous.  Just loved,the lace my wedding dress funny enough had a lace bodice,lol not a designer dress of course but was really chuffed when I saw hers.
I just loved every minute of the wedding,just hope they are left alone to be in peace.
Right I have been playing with my,scraps of paper and some of my paints.
My first creation is a tag,then I made a pocket to put it in.  The stamps are crafty individuals,

Ink pad is,versa fine,blue,added some string,which I have inked,charms are from my stash,and the bird,was sent to me by my friend Jude. Then just added,the charm to the tag,used eyelets and ribbon,

Next used one of my la blanche stamps stamped it really lightly onto stampboard,then took some paints,and painted,the image.  Used several differnet colors to add dimension and shade of tried too.

I have finished,the piece with distress inks,around the edges.
