Card and Tag

Hello Everyone and thank you for calling in. Welcome to my new followers, Erika and Nancy, hope you like what you find here and I look forward to seeing your makes as well.

At Mixed Media Monthly Challenge the theme is Reach for the Stars

I made a card mixing digital, Tando stars and stamping

I started out with an A4 piece of patterned card and used the Tando stars as stamps so that they became black with the ink and I got a more interesting piece of card. I designed the centre for the card in Paint Shop Pro then layered in on patterned foil cover card. the edges of the card are dsitressed with the black ink. The blacks tars were the last thing to be added.

At Country View Challenges the theme for July is Have Fun with Circles


This is a large tag and has on it something very special to me. It is what sprung to mind when I saw the circles challenge. A song from the film Lost Horizons that I loved when I first saw it in the 1970s and still love it now as I have it on DVD. Burt Bacarach wrote the tune and I love his music. I really enjoyed making this tag and singing the song again

Have a beautiful day
