Xmas, New Stamps & The Sunday Stampers Week 186

Hope you all had a good Xmas and got lots of goodies. We had a great time and I got lots of crafty pressies this year, Wendy Vecchi & Tim Holtz stamps, Distress Stains & a few dies!! Best of all I've had all week off work with the rest of the family. We haven't really done much but its been nice all been at home together for a change.
I've decided to have a change from the cute stamps and have a play with inks etc which have been lurking in my stash for the past couple of years and my Xmas pressies after watching a programme on Create & Craft with Hels Sheridan demonstrating, I loved all the items she was making. The tag background is coloured with Distress Stains and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I over stamped with a Hero Arts script stamp and a Stempleglede 'Grunge' corner stamp with Distress Ink. The flower is Wendy Vecchi stamps stamped on Grungepaper, coloured with Distress Stains and the sentiment is another Hero Arts stamp. I really enjoyed making the tag which was then promptly nicked by my daughter for her friends birthday card, so it can't have been too bad!
I've just painted a mini canvas with Gesso so I'm hoping to get on with that tomorrow although I'm back in work tomorrow night just for the 1 night.
I am entering this tag into this weeks The Sunday Stamper, the theme is Anything You Wanna Do.
Have a good weekend!
