FLY

Hello my Lovelies, I decided to enter a challenges, yes I'm taking the plunge for the second time, one of my favorite challenge blogs is 
Dragon's Dream, 2 of my favorite designer's design there, Miss May and Miss Julie Ann, what I Like is you don't need any special stamps, products etc., just use what you have. The challenge was green, my favorite color and the letter F, so this is what I created on a large tag..


 I used Tim's  pine needle, shabby shutters, mowed lawn, and mustard seed, blended them all over my time cards,( this is what I make my large tags )  I used my feather stencil with broken twigs.
I got some lovey sticky on large letters from a friend, so I used that for the F then stamped the L,Y with my large letter stamps. Rubbed
Inca gold all over the F..
 The stamp I used was a fountain with bird flying around it came out very light, stamped some script around, used my big white pen to make the circles around the tag, shesh crooked again, I do admit I'm cockeyed LOL..
 I dyed some seam binding with gelato's, I used another time card to stamp the seam binding with the same stamp, I really like how it looked after, so I inked it up to finish the back of the tag to match the front.

                               
I think I like the back better :O). I also added some waxed twine to make a big bow.. That's it for me Ladies, I'm going to do some visiting then back to my desk. Hope you have a wonderful creative weekend, it's going to snow all weekend here, I'd trade it for the rain any day ^-^..

                                       NAMASTE!!!!

Oooooh - this is beautiful.
It is all those different layers you stamped, they bring the most amazing interest to your tag - sublime.

This is a gorgeous tag, Dianne - both sides! I love the feathers and the way you coloured it; it looks as if it's filled with light! I can almost hear the flap of those birds' wings and the lovely plash of the water in the fountain. Great the way you stamped the ribbon too: beautiful! I hope that snow doesn't last and some blue sky soon peeps out. It's really great to see you at Dragons Dream! Thank you so much for playing along. Have a lovely creative weekend. Julie Ann xxx

Dianne...your tag is beautiful. I so love it ... the front and the back! Love the blended colors of your background. You've done a great job of using this challenge theme...green and the letter "F". I love all of your stamping as well. It's very poetic, if that is possible with stamping. That is the word that comes to mind though...as if your stamps are telling a lyrical story. I also wanted to sincerely thank you so much for your very sweet comment that you left on my blog. That means so much to me. Have a great week! <3 Candy
