Brightly coloured tag!


Monday Monday da da da looks good to me da da da .... Oops sorry getting carried away. No more foot ball yay (but loads of TENNIS ha ha) Federa through and now for Nadal. I hope you had a wonderful week end the sun is shining (another song in my head now) but not for long in the NW according to the weather man (darn it I want to go a way to the sea side this week) Any way, as the sun is shining, I went for the bright colours from the alcohol ink bank this week lol I am going to use this for a few challenges so here goes. Linda's it's Monday  and Wk 3# for another Tim technique page 61 this week of the Compendium of Curiosities (CC) see my link on the side bar for more info or just click Linda's name for this weeks edition. Next over at the Play Date Cafe (PDC) they would like a colour combo of Orange Brown Red & Turquoise yummy! And Finally GSC Gingersnap Creations would like wings! Ok think that's all of them ;0)


I have used a beer mat (well not really a beer mat but you know what I mean) covered it in card stock then the lovey Pg 61 of the CCs book, lots of alcohol ink (talk about messy I have all red and turquoise fingers now ha ha) I added some yummy ribbon and cut out some ribbon bits I had and used  them as accessories, some paper ribbon to make a boarder some DI round the edges and done! hope you likey. Love Dawn xx


Items Used :- Alcohol inks, Distress Inks (DI) Tim Holtz, Ranger. Ribbon Stash. Stamps, Stampin Up! SU & Dove Craft.
