Hello and welcome to this weeks
And this weeks theme set by yours truely is a nice, simple
Anything Goes

Our Sponsors this week are Crafter's Companion with a £10 voucher

and Digi Darla Designs with 5 digi's of your choice.

Good Luck

I've done tags for my entry. Having seen some done recently and I have not dabbled with any for I while I thought it was a good time to start playing again.

This one has been coloured using distress inks. The leaf image is stamped and then has a little glitter on it. The sentiment is stamped in distress ink. and the leaves and flowers are punched and a little glitter in the flower centres.
This one is also coloured with distress inks and then over stamped with the image which has been embossed with clear powder. Before you do this make sure your distress ink is completely dry or the powder will stick to it too, although this can be done for a different effect. Then the butterflies are punched out of patterned paper and a little glitter added.
This one is a bit different that the tag has been covered with a patterned paper and then distressed around the edge. The sentiment is stamped onto it with versafine. The flowers have been die cut, then some extra cust into the petals. They are coloured using well watered distress ink on a mucky mat so they are quite wet and then screwed up to add a bit more texture. This makes them quite hard when they are dry so they hold the shape better too. The butterfly has been stamped onto the tag, then a second one onto spare card,which is coloured and cut out and then put on to add extra dimension.
