Sweet Dreams are made of this...

The latest challenge is up and running over

Sponsored by Kj Arting
The theme ,as always, is 

and this is my first post as a DT member.
I chose to make a tag shaped wall hanger,

I started by cutting 2 tags, 1 from watercolour card
and 1 from regular 250gsm card stock...
 I used the watercolour card to create a grungy
background using gesso and letraset alcohol inks...
and more gesso.
 I had seen a video by Tim Holtz where he used
3D embossing folders to create deep texture...
So I got out some embossing folders...
 inked them with TH distress inks...
 and ran the damp tag through my cuttlebug.
 Thrilled with the outcome. I was trying for 
a look that said "ancient ruins" so that this
little cutie would feel at home :D
The image is *of course* coloured with 
I finished off with eyelets, silk cord and
words from my paper stash :D

Enjoy :D XXX
I would like to share this in the following challenges;


  1. I love the roundness of the image--her wings, her hips, her hair... There is a smoothness to the sticker that gets accentuated by your coloring, which makes the dreams even sweeter. I like it!
