We have a new recipe challenge for you at DRAGONSDREAM, its To Dye For.... chosen by my teamie Sue.
So dream her up a tag containing spray ink, die cut(s) and embossing - either heat or dry. Other than that, feel free to add anything  you like, and remember the main ingredients - at least one real stamp.....and of cause it must be a tag!
 I used TH walnut stain distress ink to spray my Kraft luggage tag, then some turquoise mica spray.... a TH sentiment embossed with copper embossing powder, SMEARED INK barb wire stamp, TH die-cut raven, heat embossed with black then stamped into, then copper buffing paste over the top to show off the detail.
Black ink around the edges then mounted onto black card..... quick and simple..... and it really does look better in real life! I hope you'll find time to join us this fortnight.
I'll enter my tag into the following challenges.... ANYTHING GOES/ ANYTHING TIM HOLTZ ANYTHING GOES/OLDIE BUT GOODY TH die i've had over a year.... and the ink/mica spray longer! DIG OUT THE OLD..... as above! EMBOSS AND EMBELLISH......... PLUS KRAFT
thanks for visiting today BDx
