 Time for the next Alphatags!

O is for Oak Tree (and Oval)

(Not sure if this is an Oak tree, but was all I could think of!)

I masked off half my card and brayered various DI's to create the background. Stamped the little tree from Teeny Weeny Meadow. Turned cardstock around and masked the image and repeated colours etc.  To make a reflection of my tree I stamped the image onto an acrylic block and then used this to stamp onto the card! This way you get a slightly distressed image which is great for water scenes.
Cut image out with oval die cut and backed with oval scallop.
Covered tag with paper from Essence of Nature CD.

P is for Peacock.

The stamps are from Peacock Glory set, but I only have these two from a stash bag a few years ago.

I stamped the Peacock and used Cosmic Shimmer Malachite Fire EP, coloured the image with Cosmic Shimmer watercolours. I then masked the Peacock and stamped with the feathers and embossed with gold. Added DI and sprayed with water mixed with Memento Re-inkers and mica.

Hope its not so long before I post again!

I like the way you used the bare branches for the background of your tag & the tree certainly looks like an oak tree in the oval. It's very atmospheric & thanks for the acrylic block tip about reflection stamping - rather easier than fiddling about with the brayer. The background for your peacock is rather splendid & the colours are lovely & opulent.
Hope you're much improved.

Lovely tags Sandra, I love the moody looking little scene you have created on the first one, lovely reflection effect. The peacock is beautiful too, that coloured embossing powder looks great. Jean x
