Artful Times Challenge



Artful Times is a new challenge blog and their first challenge is to make a tag.  Its a first for me too, I have never entered a challenge before so I have made a simple one layer tag for the occasion.  The background is inked with Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks. I then sprayed with Solar Gold Glimmer Mist which, unfortunately, you can't see.  I masked the top and bottom and inked with Chipped Sapphire and the stamped images are from Marion Emberson with a sentiment from Personal Impressions.  There are a couple of days left to send in your entries for the challenge and support this lovely new blog.

Goes to show that you don't need to layer a lot of embellishments in order to create an eye catching tag! Beautiful! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
