Be Strong ...

 It seems that to 'be strong' is a requirement in the uncertain times of 2020 ... it can be difficult in the best of times ...

I'm using crafting as a distraction from everything around me ... I created this tag as there really are limits to the number of cards I need!

I used:

STAMPlorations - Art Flower Stencil and Mixed Media Elements stamp set

CUTplorations - Stitched Tags Nesting Dies

Visible Image - Wings of Change stamp set

Distress Inks and Oxides - Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass

Stampin Up - Not Quite Navy ink

WOW white embossing powder

I'm going to enter the challenge at Color Hues as the name implies this challenge is all about colour ... this is a new challenge blog and this is only the second challenge they have posted.

Stay Strong!


  1. Loving the vibrant colour of this pretty tag Elaine, great stencilling - a perfect background for that pretty butterfly!

  2. I would be in really bad shape mentally if it wasn't for card therapy! I really love your artsy tag! You have balanced the colors, the text and stamps perfectly! So happy you found us and played along at Color Hues!

  3. Your tag is a beauty, and I love the layered look you've achieved. Without crafting, despair might be lurking right around the corner! Thanks for joining us for the Color Hues #2 challenge.

  4. This is a beautiful tag, with an important message. I think a lot of us are relying on our crafting to help us stay strong, or at least somewhat sane? Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!
