Childhood Memory

The present challenge at Craft-room Challenge is make something to show a childhood memory.

I bought this Abracadabra stamp quite a while ago because it reminded me of my Irish Grandmother and the wonderful stories she used to tell when I was a child. Dragons, Magicians, Fairies and many other things were real to me--still are---because of her wonderful story telling.

I stamped straight onto the tag and coloured the image with Pro markers. Then I covered that with a Nestabilty shape and distressed the whole thing with various inks. The shape looked so nice I decided to use it as the top of the tag. To finish it off I added two small tags with inspirational words on them.


  1. Love your dragron stamp,fab tag
