A Tag Of Sorts...

Hi folks...well what can I say...we might have known that all that gloriously warm weather was too good to last...oh yes Summer has decided to hide it's light under a bushel again and with rain forecast for the rest of the week...I'm quite happy to squirrel myself away in the cubbyhole leaving my lovely joinery lads to get on with it while I share yesterday's tag...
I have to warn you it may not be what you think...no "12 Tags of 2013" make I'm afraid due to a slight technical hitch in the stash filing system and until the all important missing component turns up I had a little bit of a play with what was on my desk...Distress Paints...some of the new Hero Arts Art of Card Collage stamps that I haven't got round to inking...my favourite Hero Arts butterflies from Antique Engravings and good old Remnant Rubs...I have a weird fascination in that department at the moment...
 I love the effect you get when you ink up stamps with the Distress Paints...very watercolourish and unique...never 2 impressions the same...

And the item that caused all the consternation...the cubbyhole supply of watercolour paper has disappeared off the face of the planet...now I know I put it in a safe place at the last stash tidy-up but I'm darned if I can remember which particular safe place that might be...looks like my obsession with "a place for everything" and "everything in it's place" has let me down on this occasion and I'm psyching myself up for turning the cubbyhole upside down and inside out in the hunt for said elusive item. And who knows if we strike gold there may well be another tag to share tomorrow.

Oh Kath - I wish I had a pound for every time I've tried to find something that I've put in a "safe place". Being tidy is definitely overrated! However, I love your fabulous tag. Sometimes being limited to fewer things can really pay off. Just gorgeous. X

Good Morning Kath. Love your tag and the pretty butterflies. At the moment I am taking my craft cupboard to bits looking for things that that have mysteriously disappeared. At least all will be tidy when I'm finished. Hugs Rita xxx

Big fan of distress inks and your fab tag shows how wonderful they are. Love the kraft and blue colour combo.

A great tag Kath , those butterlflies look loverly. Everyday I end up searching for things that are supposed to be filed in a safe place. Some never to be seen again. Have fun. Hugs x ChrisB

Stunning tag Kath. I love the dimension to it and the amazing effect of stamping the butterflies with Distress Paint.

Seems to have been a lovely day here after all. I think my furry boys are enjoying popping in and out from the garden.

I am so late today! Early hospital appt turned out to be an all day event... love your tag, that is my all time fave butterfly stamp too and after seeing yours the other day with Distress Paint I had to have a go too - it's kind of like alchemy and I am in love with it! Your tag is gorgeous! Hope you find your watercolour paper soon. Hugs, Anne x
