Tags for challenges

Hello, I had the best week end away. I went to the Great Northern Paper craft Extravaganzer GNPE. There were some wonderful stalls there. I was only disappointed that there were no make and takes going on. Having watched Tim on CHA and many others they all do demos of there products, some do make and takes. But there were no makes and takes and a few were doing some examples of making things but not at all what I thought these shows were all about. It was just like having lots of shops to go looking around and spend lots of pennies. Although I ended up with three bags full of stuff, I was only there two hours and I had planned for it to be a whole day. It was very popular and it was crushing how many were there. So that over with harrogate was the place to be had a lovely time lunch in the sun and Tapas for the evening meal. B&B and then church and  then a wonderful vintage fair (things to die for and I just had to make a few purchases ;0). So waffle over with that was my weekend, if you were even interested ha ha.

The Tags, well I have done this for Gingersnap Creations I really had a lot of fun making this. For the Bkgrd I used some paper towels I had been mopping up my journals with. I found a type writer font on the freebie Da Font in my side. I punched them out and covered with glossy accents some distress EP on the key along with some AIs first to give it age, the paper is G45 and that's about that. 

This tag is for a challenge over at Bella Creations Unique Challenges. Create a spot light of colour. I decided rather that just punch out a circle as you would normally I would print the stamp of Alice's Rabbit (looks more like a hair in the book illustrations) then stamp another image and colour his jacked and then glue it on top of the original image. Then I was going to do the same with Alice and I thought I would just colour a little directly on her dress of the first image. there is plenty of time to join in both of these challenges if you would like to have a go. I hope you like these tags and that your week end was eventful as you wanted it to be ;0) Love Dawn xx

Lovely tags, Dawn. Glad you had a good time at the fair! We went to Creativa yesterday, so wonderful, and may feet are still hurting!

Hello Dawn, Sounds like you had a marvelous weekend! These tags are both beautiful. I love how you got what looks like an "aged leather" effect with those paper towels on the typewriter tag, and all the "type" details are wonderful. (Thanks so much for joining the Gingersnap Creations challenge on that one!!!) And I love how you thought "out of the box" for the spotlight effect - what a great look, I will definitely be trying your technique. Have a great week!

Sorry I've been MIA. Bronchitis and viral pneumonia. I have checked out all your fab posts and rather than commenting on each I will say that I adored them all. It was a treat visiting.
