ATC and Tag

Hello to all my lovely friends and followers who drop by Jumbled Crafts today. Welcome to Annie who is my latest follower.

This week at Wicked Wednesday the theme is Inspiring Words or Quotes

This is the ATC I made using a teatimedesigns digi image that I won at Wicked Wednesday. I coloured it to match the background that I painted  with watercolours.

Now for Tag Along and Butterfly Challenge The theme at Tag Along is Nature's Glory and Butterfly it is one layer only

I did the background on my faux gelli pad--made from sponge kitchen pads. I just dabbed on alcohol inks then stamped the card onto the pads.

The flowers and bees are a Joanna Sheen stamp set and the Butterfly stamp is by Elusive Images and one of my oldest and well loved wooden stamps

Hope you have a lovely day

Chrissie xx


  1. Your faux gelli plate idea sounds good. I have resisted buying the plates because of the cost. Might have a go using our technique though. Gorgeous tag. Love those colours and not come across that butterfly stamp before either. Thankyou for fluttering by #10. Hugs Mrs A. (Butterfly.challenge).

  2. Beautiful work, I especially like the sentiment on the first one! The tag is gorgeous, love the background and the stamps. Hugs, Valerie

  3. What a fun ATC this is Chrissie, love the wording. And your tag is so pretty with these fine stamps and colours taken from nature! have a lovely Sunday, hugs, Ira x

  10. Sage advice from the ATC, and I'm in love with your tag - brilliant inky effects and fabulous meadow flower stamping - a complete treat. It's so nice finally to have a little time for some catching up.

  11. I had to come back here as I think this tag is gorgeous! Love the stamps too... I do my "Gelli" printing on a smooth silicone mat intended for cooking. A lot cheaper and works well enough!
