TAG IT ON NO'S 3 &4

Hi there!!! After being away for my first ever crafting retreat this weekend I got a little behind with these. Last week seemed to be spent getting all my stuff together hahahaha!!!! Anyhooooo here are tags 3 and 4 for the DRAGONSDREAM TAG IT ON CHALLENGES .

For #3 there was a guest designer, Ali Mayes, who has a love of rhubarb hahahaha. Here is her challenge:

RHUBARB CRUMBLE & CUSTARD

"My challenge for you is Rhubarb Crumble and Custard! I can see my enormous rhubarb plant as I look out of my craft room and it is what inspired the challenge. Your task is to use pink (for the rhubarb) yellow (for the custard) and texture (for the crumble) You must use at least one stamp and 2 embellishments."

I used one of my fave stamps for this and as usual she just has to have lippy on, well a girl can look nekkid without it lol. The border was stamped and I added 3d paint dots to the flowers. A bit of lace & ribbon finished it off. Oh and the diddly buttons of course.

For this weeks challenge, #4, we were asked to make a tag with the theme:

ORIENTAL........CHINA BLUE

This was lovely to do as I have a lovely stamp set of the famous Willow pattern. I love the story behind it...so romantic! I used a pale blue background and sprayed it with copper glimmer mists, tho I don't think you can see that. I used brass embellies and blue ribbons to finish. This looks much better irl!

Thank you muchly for taking a look, I really appreciate it, hugs to you all XXX
