Dragons Dream TIO 112 The Thorn Birds

A very dark and gloomy looking tag from me this time, not intentional, just the way it ended up. Sort of reminds me of a 1950's tattoo! Silvia has chosen the theme for us this time, with the book "The Thorn Birds" one of my favourite books and films. This choice did make me laugh a lot though as I work as a Secretary for a Priest, lol............ more Father Ted than Thorn Birds!!!!!
I had geat fun creating the backgound with a mixture of different distress stains and inks, spritzing with water and then adding  copper mica powder in to it.
Hope you enjoy our challenge this time and pop over via the link on my sidebar to join in the dream, just remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag! Elizabeth xxx

Very nice tag Elizabeth, and such a tricky subject too! Now what was the advert for please? It has to be late 80s/early 90s?!! I wanna be in bed! LOL!

What a beautiful job you did on the Australian theme tag, Elizabeth! I love the background.

Your Gothic background does give a very dark and sombre feel to your tag, very brooding and it suits the mood very well. Love the horses
