It's been a wild week for me. Everything at work was due on Friday, so it was long hours of work for me. THEN on top of that...I was suppose to be in Ireland this weekend with my family. I didn't get to go due to Jazz's vet bills but I would have been trying to get home yesterday (Saturday) myself. So in the end it was a good thing I didn't go. However, I still haven't found out where my family is. Last I heard they were schedule out of Dublin (back to Venice) on Monday morning....if the planes are flying. But that was Thursday night. SO....keep your fingers crossed for them!
I did get some time to play finally yesterday. I took some time and went to the Saturday crop at Archiver's. Just getting out of the house with planned craft projects means some stuff gets done. One of the things I worked on was the weekly TAG challenge from Kard Krazy (Louise). The challenge was to use a sentiment stamp on a tag.
Having just done Michelle Zindorf's brayer class last Sunday, I wanted to try brayering a tag. I started by stamping the swirl on the tag using white acrylic paint as ink. After it dried I brayered the bottom with Broken China and the top with Peeled Paint. Then used a wet cloth to gently remove the ink from the white paint. It's such a cool look. I used some Japanese Washi tape along the left side (stripes). The sentiment tag was distressed with Tumbled Glass and over-stamped with Broken China.
