Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 16 - Anything but a card

Hi everyone, heres my creation for our latest challenge on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp where this week the dare is to make anything but a card. My DT friends came up with some wonderful ideas and creations for this so I hope you can join us this week.

I've made a tag and wrapping paper by blowing up my bluebell image to A4 for the paper and by about 25% for the tag and then cut out the tag shape. Both are coloured by blending with alcohol inks in several shades with silver mixed in and are in fact the same colour IRL but the silver in the tag is catching more light I think because of the angle. With the tag I also over stamped the image with a text stamp in black stazon ink as I used shiny white paper to print my images. Finished off with a sentiment stamp, an eyelet set into the tag and pink ribbons. Amazingly no Star Dust stickles was used in the making of this set :D. TFL. Chris x

My bf, Kaye, always says gifts are all about presentation and delivery. You nailed it! Your wrapping paper and tag are a gift in itself.
