Swaps and WOYWW


This tag was on my workdesk until early this morning, when I mailed it out for a Stampers Anonymous Junque Gypsy  tag swap.  To take part, we had to use SA stamps, and I thought the image of the woman was so pretty.  I used Tim Holtz's new summer distress ink colors to color in the background and added as many embellishments as I could.  I can't wait to get my new tags from the other swappers!  I'm going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the challenge is to use the new distress ink colors.  That Salty Ocean Blue is fab!  If you don't have any yet, you should get some, I use it all the time.

Last Saturday I attended a regional Stampin Up workshop, and exchanged card front swaps with about 30 people.  This pile is sitting on my desk now, waiting to get organized.  I didn't make any of these, they were all from other attendees.   It's such a great way to get new card ideas and examples.

 If you are wondering why I am showing you what is on my desk, hop  on over to The Stamping Ground, where a bunch of fun loving and crafty folks show off what they are working on.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I so appreciate your comments.  Would love to have you follow me if you are not already.

  5. I love your tag -- there are so many lovely details, but yet they are balanced and don't overwhelm. I do like that blue and am waiting (im)patiently for an online order to arrive which includes the summer set. Happy WOYWW from Laura #122
