TIO Challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show distressing

 We continue with our FABULOUS recipe challenges again this week, where it is Silvie's turn to tease and inspire us... her choice is "Don't Fear", with the ingredients, a scary image, a crowd of purple and texture - how zany and amazing is that!!??  I stamped on shiny cardstock for maximum depth of colour and texture from my clear ep.
 That yummy texture shows up here in the light from my window, and you can see that the two crows are raised off the tag.
 WOOO, I am LOVING this huge image.!! With my old blog layout, I did not have room for this, but now I can, I shall!!!! So this is the whole tag. My scary image is the crows, 'cos I think they are evil-looking, and how shocking that one should have the key to the door in his beak... what if he flies away with it???
And, of course, the crowd of purple is all done with the range of yummy distress inks we have now, from the new lilac to the new raspberry, through concorde and berries... ooo they are so scrumptious!!! The door and the key are from a set by Darkroom Door; the birds are from a set by Invoke Art; the moon came from a set by the Stampman, many moons ago (get it????!!! - ouch, no need to kick me SO hard!!) and the tree is a Judikins one from Stamp Addicts.

Well off to add it all to the challenge blog, where most of my team have already posted their fabulous inspirational pieces... do pop over and have a look, and do visit their blogs too, as they are all immensely talented!! Thanks for coming to look and for leaving your uplifting and supportive comments, they really do help me when I am feeling low, after yet another set of wet clothes for mum!!
Love and Light

WOYWW #160 - What a Week!!

Welcome to my week of hell... not boring you except to say mum was taken off to hospital, quite unnecessarily, as I told 'em all  at the time!!! Anyway, back now and just as honery  as ever... But I am trying for a Blue Badge for me and am advised to apply for attendance allowance for me too, to get help for me with mum!!! Complicated eh?? But I shall try it.

Anyway, to why you are here - well I thought she would NEVER get on with it!!! - It's THAT time of the week again and we are running amok through the worlds' desks and work spaces, to see what we are all up to, with the permission of her highness the Julia of Dunnit, here... I visited many of you last week but had insufficient time for commenting, unfortunately... visiting the hospital is a time-consuming pastime, and jolly costly in parking fees!!
 So here is my desk - photos from top to bottom equals right to left across my space. Junkyfied eh??? Untidy and jumbled but I was making a tag for TIO... and I am still able to find stuff - only just though, lady!!! -
 The middle portion is the actual bit I work on... barely big enough for a postage stamp!!! All my purple distress inks are out to fulfil the recipe for the TIO challenge, and also for Simon Says Stamp and Show some distressing... yummyliscious!!!
This far end is where the paper scraps live for a while, the glue gun, heat tool, melting pots, baby wipes, silicone glue etc etc all live at this end, under the paper bits shelf.
And for those of you, including the illustrious Mrs. Dunnit, who wanted to know about the big box and what might be inside... well, nothing much just now. It's what I use to elevate my work for photography, as above. Here I have a single sheet of Bo Bunny Weekend Market paper as a background, but often, I have a whole paper stack, and it fits on the box well...
And finally, here is a close up of the tag I was making ... the crow has the key in his mouth for Silvie's "Don't Fear" recipe challenge... it's another great one this week so why not have a go yourself??? To see the whole tag properly, you can go to the DragonsDream Tag it On blog, or here on my DragonsWeb.

Thanks for popping in again and leaving your lovely, uplifting comments
