TIO #78 Texture!

This week over at Dragons Dream we are dreaming in "Texture" lead by the very creative Wanda. I decided that I needed a good dose of messy crafting this week after all of the pastel stuff I've been playing with over tha last few weeks, LOL. So my dream began with stencil paste through the mini harlequin Crafters Workshop template. I added some black glitter whilst the paste was still just wet enough to hold it, then once dry I inked around the tag with black soot distress ink. I love this Tango stamp by Blue Moon, it was stamped out in memento and then coloured in with a selection of promarkers, then inked around with black soot to distress the edges. To add yet more texture, I added a selection of beads around the bottom for a little extra drama. Hope you come over and dream with us this week, just click on the Dragons Dream logo on the sidebar for a link to the challenge. Elizabeth xxx
