We have a new challenge for you at T.I.O.T.... its TAG week so you must make a tag and the challenge is a hideous one..... out of my comfort zone by a mile and i shuddered when i was told.... the challenge is USE PEEL-OFFS.............. EEEEeeekkkkkk! I had a bit of a problem as i dont actually own any.... so i had to steal from my daughters...... even then i couldnt actually bring myself yto use them on my tags ...so i used them as masks to ink through. The full colour college tags uses the same peel-off as the black'n'white tag.....in the background.... quite different hey? The outside edge of the B&W was done with peel-offs as well...

............and i had to do a third just for the fun of it! The Poe stamp is from SMEARED INK....I coloured with ink and promarkers...added ribbon flowers...gems.... net.... victorian images, and of cause ribbon to tie the tags with.

Please come and play with us this week and show me some exciting things to do with the dreaded peel-off!
