SCD

This week the challenge at SCD is still tags but with circles as the theme.



The background of my tag has been made by swiping DI antique linen onto it as a medium to get the Cosmic shimmer mica pigments to stick to it, then spritzed with water to set them. Then I've run it through the cuttlebug using a circle embossing folder. Chipboard flower has been painted, stamped and glossy accents and on top circles punched out and cut to give a fringe effect and finished off with some flowers that come on wires stems which I've cut off. I them coloured in some of the circles with a white pen to highlight, which in hindsight wasn't a good idea LOL.....

Love taking part in these challenges as they make you think and DO !!!

Off to Carol's frame class at Papermaze now, really looking forward to it.

One other bit of news, Jim has asked to go out for 2 walks in the last few days, he's not been keen ever since the corn and even in the car he has to be persuaded to go, so the fact that he asked to go was fantastic! of course he didn't go far but at least he went. Other hounds are all well and happy.
