Hi everyone,

Hope you are all okay out there. Weather has turned really warm here in the UK so maybe crafting in the garden would be a good choice :)

I think I have a stencil addiction. Since the weekend,I now have 7 more to add to my collection,I can't resist them.......is this normal?!?

Anyway,a tag for you today......not using stencils......

I am entering this in A Vintage Journey,Dies and Distress challenge here and my 2nd entry for SanDee and Amelie Steampunk,Inventors and Inventions challenge here

The tag was die cut from card,die cut toppers and a die cut cog,Art Journey stamps,fresco paints,distress inks,embossing folder used for cogs background,the lightbulb is a Artistic Stamper stamp on my very own mono printed background,die cut cog has distress embossing powder on it.

Hope you like it

  5. This has a very perfect industrial feel to it Donna and the color is fantastic as well!
    Here the warmer days started too.. I hope at least that they don't end up again ---
    boring summertime yet .. our pool ist ready to join..but the weather was'nt nice yet to have fun with our inflatable plastic pool...
    maybe from tomorrow on... the weather report promises hot days!


  6. Donna, I love your masculine tag and the stamped images are quite cool! Great idea to enjoy the time outside in the garden. We always have an abundance of sun and that usually comes with some high heat!!!

  7. A fabulous steampunk design Donna, a great arrangement of images. Thanks for sharing it at A Vintage Journey xx

  8. Hi Donna! This is really cool! I love the 'manly' look of this piece! The background is brilliant! I have a thing for backgrounds, don't know why :)
    I would love to see you crafting. Have you thought about making youtube videos? I would love to do it myself, but with my limited craft space, kiddos yelling and sporadic crafting in between my other tasks is not an ideal environment, I guess. Have a great day! Hugs,

  9. I love your colours on this tag! The composition is terrific too! Fabulous mono-printing! Well, I am impressed with everything about it, especially that light-bulb. I love stencils too, though! I never feel like I have enough! Keep having crafting fun in the sun! Julie Ann xxx
