Child's Play

TIO#92 - Child's Play

Another week has flown by since the last TIO challenge. This week the challenge is set by Janet and she has chosen "Child's Play" as her theme. My problem was deciding which stamp to use. Having finally made that decision I set to work with a stamp by Sheena from her Little Bit Sketchy range. He is such a cute, cuddly little boy!

I coloured the tag with distress stains - broken china, peeled paint and wild honey. I only have five or six of these at the moment but NEED more! I stamped the child using black archival, and the birds, from Clarity Stamp with grey archival. The sentiment was also stamped using black archival. I then stamped the child again on a seperate piece of card and coloured in with prisma pencils, and paper pieced over the image on the tag.

Finally, I added ribbons from my stash, a narrow yellow ribbon and a polka dot pale blue organza.

Do pop over to Dragon's Dream TIO challenge, using the link above,  and check out the fabulous entries by my fellow design team buddies. They really are amazing. Then let us see what you can come up with. I bet you have one or three child type stamps in your stash. Have fun and just remember to use at least one real stamp in your creation.

Bye for now.

  4. Wanda, your tag is gorgeous. I love the stamp of the kid. So sweet. And you've colored it so beautifully with your few distress stains. I have just learned about the stains and have zero. They look like a fab new addition to an artist's inks/dyes.

  5. Wanda, a beautiful and wistful tag using that wonderful image. Have not got any DS yet, need to see a demo I think before taking the plunge.
