and another...

Evening all,

Ok, I couldn't resist... I had to play along with Darnell's NBUS challenge for the third and final time.
But I thought I should challenge myself a little more, and decided I needed to use at least three different NBUS. NBUSES? NBUSS?

And while I was at it, I wanted to also incorporate the new challenge over at Go Tag Thursday, which has a hat theme this week. at first I thought I would struggle, but it turn out I have a HUGE amount of "hat" stamps in my stash!

This one uses my NBUS Unity stamp, NBUS Tim Holtz motif paper and my brand spanking new NBUS Inktense pencils.

You know, I think there's another thing us crafters suffer from, besides hoarding NBUS. And that is hoarding the last of something! So for this tag I decided to take that plunge too, and add the very last of a sheet of self-adhesive star gems, which I bought a week or so after I started crafting.
I'm feeling really virtuous now! lol.

This was my first time using Inktense pencils, and though I'm not hugely unhappy, I do feel more practice is required. I will get the hang of this whole watercolour thing one of these decades!

Right, that's me for now. Have a lovely evening all!

Lovely tag and the lady stamp is great. Love the background and colours. ( I love Intense pencils) My craft room has been likened to a shop so I know what you mean about hoarding.

And you SHOULD feel very virtuous, Sammy! I am mentally applauding you like crazy for this incredible tag design and execution and for all the NBUSSES you used AND for using the LAST of something!! High ten, sister!! And thank you for your third entry in my challenge! Mwah!! Hugs, Darnell
