This week we are welcoming the super talented Wida into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog you are in for a fabulous treat. Please pop by to say 'Hi' :-)

I made a card and tag for a 'Bloke's Birthday' :-)
I used these Tim Holtz Products,,
Birthday Blueprint Cling StampsPaper StringMetallic Distress PaintCrinkle Ribbon.

I love the chalkboard effect and used the paint from a  Snow Cap Dabber to achieve 'the look' :-)

I heat embossed the images and sponged the paint around using a sponge and my fingers,,, I love getting inky messy :-)
For the tag I used some Metallic Paint and a numerical stamp from Dylusions, the tag itself was cut on the Silhouette Cameo,, I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post
