Fairy Dreams Tag

Happy Inky Day everyone!  I hope you've all had a wonderful week...  I for one am pooped and so happy that it is Friday.  I wanted to update you a bit - as most of you know we own our own small business (dh repairs and sells industrial sewing machines) in addition to our farm.  As a side to the repair business we also have a few small sewing jobs that pair nicely which normally our son handles.  Recently we took on a new job which started out "small" but has blossomed into something MUCH larger....I almost feel like the guy from Little Shop of Horrors trying to feed Audrey II but I'm getting in deep - LOL!!  

Anyway, it's been an adjustment - the first couple weeks they sent us new/different/change orders every day....I was so behind I couldn't even move when I got home at night (bad back).  I'm still trying to get things ironed out and if they don't decide to change anything else I might just get caught up in a week or so (this has been going on for a month an a half now).  So if you visit the blog (instead of e-mail) you'll have noticed that my posts are showing up later in the evenings - a byproduct of this new job.  When I get caught up things should get better and I can post again more closely to mornings or early afternoon.  If I miss a day please know it's not by choice most likely it will be due to another change or last minute order.  Right now art is the only thing keeping me sane - and some days that's debate-able - LOL!!

Today I have a fun fairy tag to share with you....

The base is a super large tag layered with pattern paper, gesso over stencil die-cut paper, a few stamps, flowers and the lovely fairy stamp from Sin City Stamps.  She was colored with a combination of colored pencils and markers... I don't know why I chose green for her skin tone but it just felt right.  The butterfly and "dreams" stamps are from Altered Pages.

Below is a closer image of the fairy...I love how her wings turned out - a bit of blue and purple Spectrum Noir markers blended together and some Stickles Glitter Glue over top.

I hope you all have a wonderful inky filled weekend!
