SL3 10 and SSSS 2


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. Rain, rain and more rain here :(! Scraping in on the last day on Linda's Studio L3 challenge 10 Distress Stickles and Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge 2 Wendy Vecchi challenge with my tag. I've taken the acrylic flower from Wendy's blog as my inspiration and cut my acrylic with the TH grunge flower die then stamped over with a polka dot background stamp. The flower layer underneath is cut from grunge paper and I've used the distress stickles technique from the Compendium of Curiosities on that. The tag is also cut from acrylic and the background created with alcohol inks and then I've layered it over some kraft card. Finished off with more distress stickles, ribbon, pearls, a round mirror tile for the flower centre, some hand cut embossed and sanded  green metal leaves and a Paper Artsy text stamp. Enjoy your Sunday and thanks as always for your comments.
