Tag Tuesday- Theatre and Cinema.

Another tag using a paper napkin.  Using only the top layer, the images were stuck to card with Mod Podge and cut out when dry.  For the background I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and TH Distress Ink.  Film strip edge was cut on my Bind It machine.  The ticket was a free stamp with Craft Stamper some time ago.  Buzz was stuck onto a large button that has been in my button jar since last summer.

I'm very late for Tag Tuesday.

Just got this made in time for last weeks theme of Casino amusements and Bingo as I was away last week.
The only thing I could think of was the phrase Royal Flush, so I Googled it to find out exactly what it was.  Luckily, I had bought packs of playing cards a few years ago and I had one pack left. 
Crown made from Grungepaper and painted gold before being embellished with gems and glitter.  I used rub on letters for the phrase.

Tag Tuesday - Mermaids and Water Babies.

The only thing to hand that I could find to use or adapt for this weeks theme, was this photo of my youngest daughter Kezzy, taken by a professional photographer when she was about 5, a Christmas present for me from my oldest daughter. I scanned to photo and printed it onto canvas.
The background, is yet another page from my very old music book, never heard of the song.  I coloured the page with TH Distress Ink.  The 'rock' is coloured copper coloured sandpaper which I added additional colour with a wax crayon.  'Seaweed' is a strip of synthetic silk, attacked with a heat gun. I cut the picture out, had to stitch a few pearls on and then attached it to the tag with sticky pads.  All other embellishments from my stash.
