Tando Tag week

This week over on the Tando Creative blog the theme is tags.

Tags are great to try out new paint colours and techniques and then can be used!! bonus lol

Here is my tag for this week:-

Tando do a great range of tags, but, unfortunately I don't have any, so my base is a Ranger tag which I added texture paste thro' a stencil….once dry some text paper was also added.  Using DecoArt media line acrylic paints I added colour to the background.  Some further stencilling and doodling finished off the base.  An Owl and a flower, both minis, were then painted and doodled and added to the tag along with a stamped sentiment.

Pop on over to the Tando blog this week and see what other tags have been created.  There is also an announcement concerning a new DT member,

Tando Monthly colour theme

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and here's to a great 2017.

Over on the Tando Creative blog the first week of each month is a colour theme….last year I decided to use the theme to make an ATC a month and at the end of 2016 I had a wonderful collection of ATC's.  I already have a fantastic collection of ATC's spanning many years, when I first started crafting I belonged to loads of forums and each one had a different swap running each month, inches, twinchies, atc's, postcards, tags you name it there were swaps and I still have each and everyone of them.  Over the years other mediums have taken over, but, last year I enjoyed the ATC's so much that I have decided to do them again!

So, here is our colour theme for January 2017:-

and here is my atc:-

The tando chipboard atc base was painted with black paint (all the paint used this month is the paperartsy fresco range), I then added merlin, concrete and ……. using the same colours I added some stencilling thro a piece of sequin waste and painted some circles using lid tops, text stamping was then added…. the butterfly, from the grab bag, was painted using the same colours.  Doodling around the edges and a bit of distress stickles, rock candy, was added to the butterfly and there you have no 1/2017.

Pop on over to the Tando blog during the week to see what my dt team mates have come up with.
