Textured Tags for Artistic Stamper

Hello all!  Thanks so much for your lovely comments on the Krafty Busy Bee - sorry if I sent some of you off to the honey pot for a feast on top of all that chocolate last week!  I'm here with a sneak peek today, hoping to tempt you over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog to see a pair of textured tags.


They're full of texture and gilding and - unusually for me - 3D flowers...  It doesn't happen often, so I hope you'll have time to hop over to check them out.

I'm looking forward to fitting in some blog-visiting this weekend, and if anybody's at Ally Pally this Sunday, you might just find me doing some demo-ing over at the PaperArtsy stand.  If I don't see you there, I'll hope to catch you here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland very soon.

The truth worth of a man is not to be found in man himself, but in the colours and textures that come alive in others.
