DRAGONS DREAM .... and my NEWS

I have the honour of now being part of the Dream team.... i adore the Dragon...(Frankie) her work and her challenges.... some of you may remember i did a guest spot there over a year ago...where does the time go?
Waffling over..... we have a new challenge for you and its to be inspired by the song title 'Bed of roses' by Bon jovi, chosen by my teamie Elizabeth..... your TAG must have some metal on it and at least one REAL ( even if its just a sentiment) stamp ( as this is a stamping based challenge.... i am in heaven!)
I stamped a red tag with a large rose flourish from CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS ,embossed with black powder.... mounted this onto a slightly larger black tag.
The Rose in the upper corner, again from creative expressions was stamped 6 times and coloured with promarkers.... fussy cut into layers and decoupaged.... i added black scruffy feathers...instead of leaves.




The skeleton in the coffin is made from a recycled food container..... it was rather thick so took me nearly 2 hours to do..... i was given a notepad by my dad and step mum and this wonderful image is on the back cover..... i rubbed over it.... like we used to as kids with crayons...remember?.... then i spent 2 hours deeply embossing and de-bossing to give the effect i wanted..... i then painted it with matt black paint....once dry i buffed it up... and i am pretty pleased with the result.



I'm happy with my bed of roses.... and we'd love to see yours..... whatever your style!

I shall enter this into the following challenges

  18. Lyn, you have really worked to get some great texture with your hand embossing. I'm not into skeletons and such (at 77 years such things are not so funny) but I do appreciate your handiwork. It must have taken forever to do.
