Tagalicious!

The day has come for the last of Tim's Tags,( what will we do every day now?) and of course it is none other than my favourite, grungepaper roses! It has been one of those days, where I saw the post this morning, got out all the supplies... went to work ( ugh on a weekend!), thought....I will do the errands after work, and get back while it is still light to make the roses. They do take time to glue on the tag, especially with glossy accents. But.....the best laid plans never work.. DH asked me to go for quick trip to get a electric switch, and the shop didn't have them, so muggins here went off in the other direction to another branch of the shop to get one, while he attempts to finish one corner of the kitchen. Will it be ready for Christmas I ask myself?...
Anyway I finally sat down late this afternoon, and did the tag. You might ask what I used on the grungepaper? I was very lucky this week to get some samples of Crafty Notions Creative Colour Sprays ( similar to Glimmer Mists) and boy are they gorgeous colours. I used Orange Lustre and Poppy on one flower, and Delphinium and Kingfisher on the other. The most concentrated colours and they are just are fab! They will be in the shop in the new year.


Don't forget to pop back tomorrow for a BIG and amazing giveaway, probably the biggest I have ever done! getting excited about it.....

Another triumph Jen..am very cynical about all this product overloading that TH is King at, but your tags may well have turned me. OMG another slippery slope!

Oh yes....I think your flowers must be die-cut.....such nice round, smooth edges! Beautiful, Jennie! I'm suffering from very sore fingertips this morning: sore and
ink-stained from making the rose. Your tag is wonderful.
