Crafty Individuals April Challenge - 'Spring Into Fashion'

Morning all,

lol still flippin freezing winds here, so frustrating as my littlies would love to go to the park!!!!!!!!

Anyhoo, while blog hopping a couple of evenings ago I spotted the post for the new months challenge over at Crafty Individuals and decided to have a go. My apologies for the poor photos but the light is terrible at the moment even though the sun is trying to break through the clouds!!!!!!!!


and a scan for a little more detail........


Ha ha ha, lots of shadows on the scan because the green lady is raised above the others!!

This started out from a tag I was using to use up odd bits of paint from other projects, this was then stamped with white pigment ink using CI - 053 for some 'textual texture'!!
Three ladies from CI - 323 were stamped onto card and coloured with promarkers, cut out and attached to the tag (one raised with foam stickers).
Papermania lace was coloured with DI's and added at the bottom and top of the tag.
The sentiment is my own and I have no idea where it came from in my head but I think it works?? This was stamped onto yellow card using a mini-alpha set from my stash, cut out and edged using DI and attached to the tag.

Lol so annoying as the pics don't properly show how vibrant the colours really are - hey ho, worse things happen at sea so they say!!

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like too, your time and input means a lot to me.

Huge hugs

Great tag--love the humor! It is slightly less than freezing here, LOL, but still below normal. At least the sun is shining today!

Dawn your tag is lovely and I know how it feels to be "no spring chicken" lol but that doesn't stop me trying.

Wow, this tag is amazing. I could tell the lady in green was raised in your photo. I however, think these gals look more like spring chickens than old hens (grin).

Listen Dawn - I have never had a picture show how good my work looks in person. Very disappointing. Your tag is great and I can tell you have quite a sense of humor which is quite important in life. Great work kid - I only wish you lived in my neighborhood!
