Just a quick note before my projects.... Memory Works now has available new 3 Bugs In a Rug paper collections!  Click on the Memory Works button just below my banner to see the gorgeous new products!

At the retreat this past weekend Cindy Moss taught some classes.  She's a rep for many companies, among them Tsunineko.  We played with tags using Ink Potion #9 (which I have), inks, embossing powders, and a lot of new product which was shown at C.H.A. last month in Anaheim, CA.  I made 5 tags and LOVE 4 of them.  Here they are:

I'm not too thrilled about the bottom one but will show you some close ups now....

Isn't this just yummy??  Most all products on this are new!  I can't tell you any names but what great textures!  We used embossing powders, glitter, and more.

These "flakes" are just fabulous!!  I think I need to get them...

This  tag used the Ink Potion and various inks.  It REALLY shimmers!  I could not get that to show in my photo.  And the stamp is pretty cool but I have NO idea who made any of the stamps we used.

After making the background I stamped a cool text stamp then embossed the bottom image with a new Antique Mahogany embossing powder.

I did manage to get some of the gold shimmer in this tag. Again I stamped after making the background then stamped the top and bottom images.  No embossing on this tag.

I do not care for this tag.  After making the background we embossed the dogwood then, using a VersaMark pen we added the lilac e.p. to the blossoms.  It covered too much so there is no detail.  The pen we used had a frayed tip and so there was no real control. 

I still have more to post but need to get some other projects done (along with our taxes)...  Stay tuned!

The tags are great, I really liked the dogwood! I live in Missouri though and am partial to dogwoods.
