DragonsDream Tag It On Blog Challenge

After seeing what some of the #3up team had done on the DragonsDream TIA blog challenge, I thought that I'd have a go too..

The theme this week for the tag is

Nature, Time & Orange. 

As some of you know, I made a faux pas yesterday when painting gesso onto fabric. I then went onto make yet another faux pas but not cutting out the right shape for the bag so I didn't want to waste the fabric I had painted and then stamped up so ran the fabric through my Bigshot to create the flower parts. I then inked them with 'spiced marmalade' distress ink. 

The tag was painted with papermania antigue gold and papermania guava acrylic paint. I then put a couple of drops of Pearl-ex 2-tone re-inker onto my glass mat and dabbed it onto the tag with a bath sponge. 

I used a small clock mask from Ali Reeve in the bottom left hand corner and stencilled
 through with Frayed burlap distress ink.
 The laser cut clock hands were rubbed over with Creative Expressions patina gilding wax.

I stamped the sentiments using stamps from the Visible Image "Time flies" set with sepia versamark onto parchment and cut them into individual words. 

The tag was finished off with some orange & white barbers twine.

I'd like to enter this into the DragonsDream TIO Challenge 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today x
