Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2

Hi Folks

I have been trying to finish this tag all day - but here I am  - by the skin of my teeth entering the CC Vol challenge at Studio L3 which is week 10 - Tissue Wrap Flowers p.37.  and this week they are sponsored by The Funkie Junkie's Boutique.

I didn't have any Tissue Wrap, so made my own and stamped a music score in Black, but I did follow the technique,  and because this quit a large flower - started off at 3" x 3", thought it made a perfect 'skirt'
The shading on the tag is Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage.  The flower was inked with Milled Lavender,  stamping is Dusty Concord.  I know I used the Dress Form on the last tag I entered there, but I think this shows just how versatile it is.

I am also entering this at :
  Crafts & Me - Anything Goes
  Divas by Design - Die Cuts
  Simon Says Stamp - Anything but a Card

I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers - I can't believe I have 102!!!   WOW!!!

Thank you all for being interested enough to follow and for all the encouraging comments you have left me.

Hi Avril,
I'll try again. Last time I tried to leave a comment I got an error message,
This tag is stunning, I love it! The colours you've used are perfect and look fab together. Your tissue wrap flower is gorgeous and makes a fab skirt. I'm loving the dress form at the moment too, the die and the stamp and I totally agree it shows how versatile it can be.
Thanks for popping over to my Blog. So sorry you missed the IB shows, Kay was fab with great tips and techniques. She's back on again soon. xx
