Stolen Craft Time

Recently I was lucky enough to win a prize draw at Artful Times, which included some big MDF tags. Last week I was off work and looking after my son and trying to sneak in some craft time while still appearing to be a good mother! So I kindly allowed him to have one of the tags and he was happy using up all my materials while I got on with this. 

First , I painted the tag with my son's poster paints( we'd been using them)  and then sprayed using glimmer mists and masks. My son loved this bit and was merrily spraying away on his tag while I tried not to be too precious about how much he was using . (I have successfully managed to stop him using my Promarkers by telling him they are adults only as they contain alcohol).

Next came stamping with script and flower/foliage stamps , first in brown, then in black. I stamped a woman in a swing and a verse, and paper-pieced the dress and some of the foliage.  I added a die-cut clock face and a punched butterfly and finished with gems and Distress Stickles.

I would post my son's effort , but I can't find where he put it. It had LOTS of glimmer mist on it!

I love this Marina. Such wonderful detail. I don't know hoe you can put all this mix of stamps together so beautifully, it would just end up a mess if I did it! I love the girl on the swing because you have made her white your eye is really drawn to her. I have just spotted your pink clock on your earlier post-so off to check that out!
