eleven, eleven, eleven

Today is the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year in the 21st century! Now, I have decided to post this at eleven minutes past the hour of the eleventh hour of the day, and am hoping that blogger will be kind to me, and do it! I made a tag in honour of Remembrance Day, lest we forget!
The tag was made using the age old technique of serendipity. I inked some paper and stamped some, cut up into small sqaures, and mixed them up, glued them down and then added the numbers 11. I made a poppy from grungepaper, using the Tattered Floral die, and inked it with distress stains which are on offer this month.




Hoping you have a creative eleventh day!

Great tag, Jennie and a great tribute. Like your sense of timing! It was very poignant this year as my Mum (and Dad) for that matter both served during WWII and with losing Mum so recently.... well you know what I mean!

Great tribute to our guys past and present! This really caught my eye in my blog list - love the idea of being able to use this technique for offcuts.

Thanks for the idea!
