Totally Papercrafts Rainbow Challenge :-)

Better late than never !!!! :-) I have just made this tag for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge :-)

This week it is Joey's turn to choose the theme and she chose

RAINBOW :-)


We are sponsored this week by Sew Many Cards and one lucky entrant will be able to choose 5 digi images of their choice :-) Thanks Jeri x x




I used everything Tim Holtz on this tag ,,, I used , blue, green, yellow, and pink alcohol inks which I then smudged with the blending solution ,, stamped with various TH stamps and addded a few bits of ideology things :-) the blue fabric flower was in my drawer and was a gift from a blog buddy tho I can't remember who ,, sorry x x ! It was quite deep so I took it to pieces and held it together with a brad.
i know my tag doesn't look anything like a rainbow ,, but the colours are there ,, just grunged a bit :-) I used a TH on the Edge die cut along the bottom and added some navy blue card ,,, which was then stickled with star dust. The swirl was made using a TH die and grungeboard ,, inked with distress then stickled with rock candy. i really enjoyed making this ,, getting all inky and just having a play :-) FUN !! :-) with the exception of the flower ,, everything used is from Simon Says Stamp




Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some fabulous creations for you to see so hop on over to the TPC Challenge blog to see them and I hope you all join in :-)
