Dragons Dream TIO - Turquoise and Bling!

Welcome to our first challenge of the New Year over at the Dragons Dream TIO Blog with little old me choosing the theme of Turquoise and Bling, and as always at least one real stamp.

So using plumes of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, (sorry couldn't resist that one :) to colour my tag, I stamped over with Birgit Koopsen's fabulous "Layered Strips" stamp in Archival Jet Black, for a total contrast.

The star's were a free die with Simply Homemade before Christmas and I just love the shape of them, cut from the heavily spritzed watercolour card, I think every colour of mica is on that sheet, you will be seeing more of it!! To finish off I added a few turquoise gemstones from my stash for some sparkle and job done.

So we would like to see Turquoise, bling and as always at least one real stamp on your tags, and don't forget to check out what the rest of the team have been up to, their links are all on the challenge blog along with a link to our newest team member!!!!
