It is always nice to have folks join us and I thought the entries last week were lovely entries thanks for joining the hatters.
I do hope you will join us again and don't forget Janet has a fab prize for July.
This week it is twinchies, I have made a nature inspired tag which has been painted, inked and background stamped and given a gesso wash. I added bits of corrugated card rubbed with gold leaf and pieces of text paper. The twinchie squares (for those of you not familiar with the term, a twinchie is 2x2) again these are inked and have had a guesso wash, background stamped in grey and then stamped in black with a variety of nature stamps, finished off with a few punched out butterflies and a flower. I have to admit I struggled this week my mojo went on vacation I think or had drowned in a puddle LOL. Do make sure you visit Florence, Janet and Chrissie have a lovely weekend even if we get yet more rain and thanks for stopping by. Hugs Sandra XXX

Happy crafting for the next challenge

Hi Sandra. Gorgeous tag. Would never have thought you lost your mojo after seeing this. Love all of your twinchies. Everything works together perfectly.
Regards to you both and lots of hugs.

Your tag is beautiful. I love your choice of colours and stamps. Lots of great texture and detail too! Funny that you haven't seen the sun for the rain. Over here in Ottawa, Canada it is so dry we have been having brush fires and the farmers are worried about their crops!

Lovely tag. Great colours, and I love the rugged texture of the corrugated card against the delicate stamped images - love it!

Love the softness of your colouring Sandra, it is so shabby chic (which I cannot get as how I try)and so much in vogue at the moment.
A lovely idea to group the twinchies like that and I love the additions inbetween them.
Hugs, Neet x
