Bleached Out...

...Tim styleeeeee... Linda Ledbetter is running a FAB Compendium of Curiosities challenge... *click her name to read all about it.. and there is CANDY too!!!* today is to do something using the deets on page 35 of the book... let me just say, the bleached out effect does look better in real life but light is fading outside and my camera just wouldn't stop flashing...dirty boy ROFL



I have used a variety of DI's to colour a tag - Pumice Stone, Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass and Forest Moss... then I chopped off the bottom of it using an Alteration, I am just loving those new dies.. they are... to... die for LMAO




I got the basic inspiration for the tag from Tim's blog... I have a little concern that I left my Mojo in North Yorks cos the first three tags I started went in to the bin! Honestly, I have a couple of days off and look what happens... anyways.. when I feel a lack of Mojo, I visit Tim's blog and then try and crib some ideas... which is what I done this time!




Now, get this for a goodly idea - not sure if I have seen it before but I got some FAB Tissue Tape for my birthday (thanks Wendy :O)) and decided to cover some Grungepaper with it, layering the strips right next to each other and then ran the piece thru the Bug and used the birdy Alteration... coloured the birdy with a bit of DI and then added a Grungeboard scrolly shape, popped some Distress Embossing Powders onto some Idea-ology Foliage... then popped them onto the scroll. As well as popping this onto Linda L's blog for the C of C challenge, I am also adding it to Linda E's blog .. now, we all know she is off to Ranger U and to be honest, how she is managing to keep a lid on her excitement is beyond me, I would be bouncing off the walls already LOL But, she is making countdown Tags and I am joining in too... and so can you! Click her name to see what she is up to! Thanks for looking.... TTFN

I did that with tissue tape this morning ... do you think we are extra terrestrial :0) Love this tag ... Thank you so much for joining in with the tag countdown and yes I am bouncing of the walls ... but some kind man in a white coat has put me in a room and the walls are made from soft pillows so it does n't hurt anymore :0P
