My Little Pretties (@ Somerset Life)

I have no idea where time is disappearing to!
Here I am sharing items which appear in an Oct/Nov/Dec issue of Somerset Life !!!
Somerset Life has been a favourite Stampington & Co title for the longest time,  a reader long, long before I first submitted, fulfilling an area in my creative life, as a reader and now someone who has submitted/published a few times, that is beautifully unique, it truly captures creative living.
I cannot even remember when I submitted this collection of pretties, possibly one year ago, in answer to a Tag challenge call.
As happens more often than not with me, they came about by chance.  I found myself with excess Gesso, grabbed some tags and swiped the Gesso onto them.  When I bundled them up, I happened to gather them along with some pink/red lace.  Suddenly, from that action, I had the idea of creating pretty tag ladies.  Those are moments that  make me happy LOL.
In that moment I had no doubt I would be inking up Character Constructions stamps.
She is one of my absolute, all time favourite Character Constructions stamps, I never tire of her.  It was wonderful to see her available on the That’s Crafty site.  You can find her HERE.
All stamping is done directly onto the tag, zero fussy cutting on this project! This was all about the fun of adding the wee touches, such as the fabric formed into a simple bow for her hair.
They were presented as a bundle, tied with torn fabric that I had used on the tags, that is one of the reasons I kept to a limited colour palette, making them more attractive when viewed as a collective bundle.
A stamped butterfly alights on her arm, wishing her a pretty day.
This pretty holds out a welcoming flower.
It was fun to adorn her hair with roses cut from lace rose trim.
The wee birdie sings sweetly to her.
A sentiment adorns the rear of each tag with a fragment of fabric.
Catherine Moore’s Character Constructions stamps allow me to dip into pretty with a touch of whimsy and can be light relief from when I have been immersed in my dreich and drippy (!) projects LOL.
Thank you so much for your visit to this post.  I continue to read through all the comments you generously leave for me to read.

    Yes dear Lynne, you truly had happy moments , placing your tags together with some lovely pink-red colored pieces, which inspired you to create all these beauties. I love them, and all the details of romance you added to the wonderful Catherine Moore stamped galls . Love also how you added color to the white flowers !
