Dylusion Stamps, Distress Inks and my Big - Bite!

Yo ho Fans,
Lots of crafty time for me this week.
I'm having huge amounts of  fun with the Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge and on Facebook with the Altered Art Dictionary Group.

Good job I'm retired cos there's no time to go to work!

This tag was made using the TH Spring Season Distress Inks with a bit of Vintage Photo thrown in. Stamped with Dylusion Stamps, my new set of Tim Holtz Stamps and Versafine Ink... just love 'em!

I painted the leaves with Dylusion Inks and Distress Pens. After adding some dots with my white gel pen, I made a  few holes with my Big-Bite!

I plonked a bit of white card onto the back of the Tag so it shows through the holes and then mounted the whole lot onto some dark green card stock.  

I wanted to achieve a 'Jewelled' look with my colours ... what do you think?

Job done, now I'm off to play some more.

Thank you for the lovely comments you are leaving about my work and a very warm welcome to my new followers ... a huge thank you for the interest.

F1 Racing .. British Grand Prix this Saturday and Wimbledon! Cannot wait.

Have a good weekend ....  I know I will!
