Fancy Onion

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this week the theme is Tag It - anything with a tag on will be fine. I have made a card using a fabulous image from A Day for Daisies who are our sponsors this week..


I decided to try my hand at water colouring with this image and used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I was quite pleased with the result as I hadn't used them before. I mounted my image on some green card stock and attached my LOTV stamped tags with some twine, that I coloured with distress ink to match, and a button.

Our sponsor this time is:

Prize: $12 gift certificate

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations Challenge #55 CAS
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #15 - Use Twine
Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge 76 - Image containing Food
LEJ Designs Challenge #67 - Nature Inspired
V's Sweet Ideas Challenge #14 - Something Twine
Drunken Stampers Challenge #137 - Twine
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #61 - Food and/or Drink
Allsorts Week 220 - Use your new stash (new digi stamp, new markers)
As you like it Challenge #8 - Your favourite Ribbon or Twine (favourite twine because I have a huge roll and can colour it to match my projects)

Make sure you pop over to the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge Blog and check out the DT projects, we would love for you to join us for our 'Tag It' challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please come back and visit again soon.
