Who Chipped The Sapphire???

...Actually, who names the Distress Inks? Is it Mr Holtz? Or is it someone from Ranger? Well, whomever they may be, they are very clever, the names of the colours are brill and when I first saw the Chipped Sapphire I just knew that I would loooove it... and I do! Thinking about it though... the names... like Wild Honey which conjours up a lovely warm colour, and indeedily it is.. but then there is Rusty Hinge.. and I kid you not, I have called it something else rhyming with Hinge that is a ... er...how can I put this without being banned from Blogger... erm.. ahem, a "lady garden"... are you with me - maybe it is just my mucky mind??? ROFL




I made a tag for a change... But, that is only cos of Linda and her mad ramblings about some thing she is doing next week... actually, that can be her mission of her journey to Ranger U... Linda, I challenge you to find out WHO names the colours! Linda and Annaliese are off to Ranger U in 7 more sleeps and are making tags and getting us to join in with the general air of mounting excitement... so this is my entry for today - using Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire DI's on a tag, blended, spritzed, added a bit of old book page and then went a little bit bonkers with Idea-ology & Maya Road Gems... I could have added a few more bits than this but the thing weighs a ton now ROFL So, here I am, sitting, drumming me fingers, waiting for Linda to blog her tag... ah well, am sure it will be soon... can't wait to see what she is going to say today :O))




Thanks for looking... I am off to get a drink and then sit in the sunshine...yep peeps, tis sunny here.. there is a patch the size of a hanky in the garden... am gonna make the most of it!! TTFN

Gorgeous tag and I agree the names are really imaginative and can't wait to hear if Linda finds out. I have a feeling it may have something to do with a certain Lord Tim of the Holtz who acquires amazing talents every time his name is mentioned here in blogland, xxx

Lovely tag, the colours are really intense, I love them and ooooh all that idea-ology is fab. Need some more me thinks, I keep saving mine just in case, I don't know what just in case for but I keep polishing them LOL. Tracy Evans x Oh was going to ask you, how do you do that thing where you say my entry is here when I post a challenge to you. I can do it on my blog but don't know how to do it here, I know thicko!!!
