All She Needs Is Love!

That is right, all she needs is love and this lovely from Artistic Outpost's Generation Redux is sending out the message! Hope you all are getting ready to have a lovely Valentine's Day filled with happiness and love! That is what really counts!
Let me start with the tag background which was first inked with Festive Berries and Frayed Burlap and then using the larger of Tim's movers and shapers hearts, I cut out three on a separate tag to use as a stencil, applied DecoArt One Step Crackle pounced on thickly with a piece of foam. Once dried, I reapplied the tag stencil and inked over in Festive Berries. The smaller hearts were cut from chipboard, painted gold, crackled and then inked with Ground Espresso. I edged the tag in gold and dry brushed on here and there.
The sweet gal was stamped in coffee Archival, fussy cut and colored with distress inks to suit the mood! The Love from Apothecary was masked off and cut to place over the crackled hearts.
Thank you for stopping by! Still working on so much house arranging and packing and then in a couple of weeks we go off to sign papers on the Wisconsin house. I sure hope we can get this house up and sold real soon and just have a little breathing time. I think we bite off more than we can chew! It is hard to believe that we have been here 19 years!

Super Bowl 2016 AO Style!

This is going to be a big weekend with Super Bowl 2016 and we might be going to a party if I get over this nasty chest cold I have! Well I decided to make a tag representing both teams using the "Go Team" from Artistic Outpost!
I masked off the tag and inked the team colors using Distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Black Soot and Weathered Wood), flicked on water and then some good old paint in similar colors. Next I stamped some AO football images and the background was finished.
All images were stamped in Black Archival, the sentiment cut apart and the football friends were colored using an applicator and then fussy cut! Fun tag to celebrate both teams! The new "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge has begun, so come on and play along with us!
Thank you for stopping by and again I do apologize for my lack of blogging and visits, but with now in the process of having a second house, I have been so busy! You live in a house for 19 years and boy do you collect tons of stuff! Have a fabulous weekend!
