Three of a Kind


Hello everyone from a very blustery and cold Shetland (I hope the weather is better beside you!). At least it means guilt free crafting as it is far too cold to do any gardening, so yesterday I had a bit of a play to try and break a procrastination phase. Returning from New York and then catching a nasty cold virus plus a change in medication has left me rather "limp" and not in the mood for crafting which is most unlike me. So I gave myself a good talking to and had a right messy play yesterday and this is one of the tags I created.


Texture paste and a lovely new stencil from Indigo Blu formed the base and I spritzed with Rusty Hinge and Barn Door Distress Spray Stains. Not as red as I had hoped for though.


I didn't really have a challenge in mind but when I decided to go for a string of butterflies I realised this would fit nicely with this month's challenge at Stamps and Stencils which is Three of A Kind. A great mixed media challenge and as the DT consist of many of my favourite creators there is much to inspire.

So a great play (plus another project to share with you tomorrow too) and I feel much more in the mood for creating!

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for visiting me today.

Wowsers Jennie, this is breathtaking! I love your background, I know it's not as red as you hoped, but I think the soft colour makes a wonderful contrast with the black stamping and those vibrant butterflies!! Such a beautiful flow, I has a hard time looking away! hugs :)

Hola Jennie, I hope you ´ll be better this day!! Nevertheless, you ´ve created a so beautiful tag !!! I like very much this new stamp, and the background, of course, the butterflies are fabulous.... Here in Almería, Spain, it ´s a sunny day, as always, temperature around 32 degrees.... Wish you a good, better weekend, big hugs.

Sooooo pretty, Jennie!! I think you need to give my mojo a talking to!! If this is the beautiful kind of creation you make when you're not feeling well, then I have problems!! Your mojo definitely needs to have a severe talk to my mojo!! :) :) But, so glad that you are feeling better--this tag most surely shows you are flying again!! XOXO-Shari

The butterflies sit there just glowing and the little touch of muslin is perfect. Wow!! Hope you're over it all now and not so limp! Thanks so much for joining us at Stamps & Stencils. Juliaxxx
