Tag your it and colour create -2 challenges I hope

Fabby colours at the colour create challenge this week Yellow, orange and green with the option of not being a card. I would normally use blonde moments spring fling (a card and tag earlier in my blog using these too) using the fabby mango embossing powder but I didn't take it with me on the retreat! "Tag your it" sent my Super Douper prize which arrived Sat morning so I wanted to use some of the stash on my this weeks entry "wings" and also The retreat girls collectively are called Malham Damselflies - we even have our own amazing forum thanks to brilliant computer whizz Emma xx so I wanted to use this stamp as although they look like dragonflies - I always think of these as damselflies as I bought this stamp after my 2nd retreat.

So this entry combines all those elements. Background of tag made using peeled paint, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed distress inks, sprayed with mustard seed re inker mixed with mica powder to give a slight shimmer, then over stamped in Library green archival ink with the gorgeous Crafty Individuals stamp. A swirly stamp I bought from ebay filled in gaps then I used the same stamp to tone down the bright green ribbon from the prize bundle again using the library green archival ink. The final touch was the dragonfly charm from the tag your it stash (wow thanks guys it is fabby - Karen you got thank you mail x)
