Sweet Arsenic Tag

Just a quick post of a tag I created today. 

I started with a  #10 Manila tag from Ranger and created a background using Amsterdam paints in the following colours: 
Titanium White, Azo Orange, Ultramarine Violet and Lamp Black. 

I then coloured "Sweet Arsenic Cupcake" from Lacy Sunshine with my Pro Markers (Ithink this digi may be retired now though)

I added the Happy Halloween from the Tim Holtz stamp set Apothecary down the side. 
The gems are from my stash.

The ribbon and flowers are also from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Distress weekend

Hi there.

I have had the most fabulous few days at Art From The Heart, taking classes with the uber talented Kaz Hall. Kaz is amazing at all she does but especially distress and vintage, she totally rocks these looks. Please hop over and check out her blog here for tonnes of inspiration. 

Had to have my picture with her.

Friday saw us doing a tag book using lots and lots of different distress techniques.

When I thought it couldn't get any better...... it did. Saturday saw us making a canvas. I have always adored this look but never thought I would ever be able to achieve it. But thanks to Kaz I have and I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. 

Then look who else arrived........ The Queen of Dylusions herself Dyan Reaveley 

How cool was that? Two uber talented ladies together = one happy Red Kitty. 

Thank you for stopping by today. 
All supplies were from Art From The Heart, please check their website for details on their products and workshops.

Here is my interpretation. It's in my small Dylusions journal.

The background is created using Dylusions inks and stencils. 

The main image is Amelia from Lacy Sunshine and I coloured her with promarker pens.

The poison label is from a Digi kit from tumble Fish Studio called Old Magic.

The writing is my own but using Dyan Reaveley's style. The skulls are from Day of the Head, small eyeballs are from Monster Mash, hats from Bird on a Wire, roses from Pin up Girl and border from This Old House set all by Dylusions.

Thank you for stopping by today.
