Dragons Dream TIO #121 Alice and the Rabbit Situation

This week at Dragons Dream TIO May is asking us to dream about Alice and the Rabbit Situation. Now you would think that by now I would own at least one Alice stamp living so close to where she lived, but no!! Thankfully Pamela at Free Vintage Stamps has some fantastic images and got me out of my sticky rabbit hole!
Both the window/door and steps stamps are from Lavina Stamps, funnily enough they are also down the road in the other direction!!! The letter stamps are by Anna Griffin. Everything has been coloured in using promarkers, and then a little black soot was added around the edge. Pop over via the link on my sidebar to join in the challenge and check out what my clever team mates have been up to. Please remember to use at least one real stamp somewhere on your tag.

Oooow there's no place like like home!!

Well after avoiding the big holes to Aussie on Brompton Avenue, we set up shop for the Artisan Craft Fair on in Rhos, only for a total ONE on Colwyn Crescent to decide that today he would try to blow his flat up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo short version, lots of Police, being told to be ready to evacuate, have never been soooo pleased to be home xx

Dragons Dream TIO #120 Steampunk

This time over at Dragons Dream TIO Monique is asking us to dream "Steampunk" Fantasy, Inventions and Victoriana are the ingredients.
I created the background of my tag with oil pastels, heated and blended together until I was happy with the effect, as I wanted it to look smokey and grey. All the stamps I've used are from Kanban, and stamped and embossed in black.
The gown was coloured using a mixture of Promarkers. Great to be back blogging again, can't believe it's been a  month since my last post!!
Hope you join in with the challenge, just click on the link on my sidebar to share your tags with us, and check out my fab team mates artwork. Please don't forget to use at least one real stamp. Elizabeth xxx
