Leave us a comment with a link to your creation and we shall pop over and visit you. :)

The prize this week is some nice pinky buttons and some epoxy stickers...nice and handy to keep in your stash..:)

Here are the fabulous creations from the wonderful DT members - plenty of inspiration and not only inspiration..but the lovely Dawn has a Tutorial for you all for the gorgeous tag she has made..thank you Dawn. :)

Dawn has made a beautiful tag this week....

And here's how to do it......:)
I cut the shape from good quality cardstock which I then covered with a textured plain piece of pale blue background paper which I found in my stash.

I then stamped vertical and horizontal grunge bows using a stamp from Elusive Images.

I highlighted round the bows with contrasting blue acrylic paint using a paintbrush and some water, I also added swipes of acrylic round the edges of the tag.

The Faith image was stamped with Blue Versafine Ink onto blue rose mulberry paper from MIC and layered onto a deeper blue lace paper with a small piece of “Bazzill Just the Edge” strip in between. I coloured in her lips and gave here “eyeshadow” with a Sakure Pen. I then stapled the layers to the tag.

Another small piece of Bazzill edging was attached to the edge of the tag with two little paper flowers – added doodling with silver and blue pen.

After all the main stamping was done I could decide where to stamp the Texture word, again using Versafine Ink and highlighted with acrylic paint in silver and blue.

Finally added the flowers, Prima crystal bling, paper ribbon, staples and doodled roughly round the edge of the top half of the tag.

Faith Tag – DONE!!! = Eeek sounds like Gordon Ramsay!!! LOL
