Oh dear, I missed posting my DT creations for the first Colour Create Challenge in 2012 (slap my wrist!). Actually, there are very good reasons for it; I won't bore you with the details - I'll just say that 2012 has not had a particularly good start for me so far - but at least things should only get better from here onwards. Anyway, a happy new year to all of you!
So, these are my items for the fantastic challenge that our wonderful Edna set for us. Using a fabulous colour combo of Sage, cream and red with the optional extra of buttons. I think I have been way too inspired by doing the Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas (didn't get round to posting all those either - but I did make them) because I have gone tag crazy ever since! This time it is a birthday tag.
I've gone crazy adding dimension too after making loads of 'flat' Christmas cards to save on postage costs. As usual, the backing paper is something I created myself using Bundled Sage and Peel Paint distress inks, clear embossing powder, some swirl and music score stamps. My favourite thing to do!
I'd like to enter these into a few challenges:
