PaperArtsy Playday.....

Afternoon Folks !
How are we all?
 Well I should be making my way to a hospital appointment right now but little miss Hyacynth Hyundai is sat on the drive very poorly with herself hoping the very nice man from the RAC can make her better when he gets here ! So I thought I would kill this wait with a quick post.

Last week myself and the lovely Maria Simms got together for a play day with our stash from the NEC and this tag was one of the outcomes

The tag background was created using crackle glaze and the fabuloso-um-a-diddy fresco finish acrylics from PaperArtsy  which come in all lovely scrumptious colours and a range of finishes. Some random stamping with Clarity Holly finished the background and the hexagonal wood chips and then it all got a bit funky !! I decided to stamp using distress stains and one of the lovely new Lynn Perella Christmas stamp sets which was also from PaperArtsy.
When I did stamp the lady the distress stain seemed to resist the acrylic background and gave me a lovely soft watercolouresque type image! Not planned but a happy accident!! (did think of calling this post H is for How D'I Do That??? lol)  Loved it so I clear embossed it in UTEE and added some defining highlights in white acrylic!! The tag was finished with Treasure Gold metallic wax.
The washi tape Christmas tree (yes it is a tree I promise!!) was a technique I picked up from this months Scrap365 magazine. Although I am no scrapbooker I do love this magazine for all its tips, tricks and techniques
I hope you like my littl' offering today I would love to hear back from you! I have some exciting things to look forward too this week which I will reveal soon I hope! I am off now as Mr RAC man is here!
 Crafty cheers for now
Love and hugs Rae xxx
