Its Friday....

....the first in a new months so its double fun day today!! (oh and I've got the day off too...which makes it even better!! lolx)

So, over on SCD, its new challenge and new theme day.

The new challenge is "TAGS"

and the new theme is "STARS AND STRIPES"

Here's mine:-

Wanted to try a different take on the theme and there it is.... it all started off as a white piece of card!! influenced by T!m's demo on acryllic resist I painted on the stripes - then inked over with distress inks....then spritzed with radiant rain irridescent gold. various stamping then followed! the star in the middle was cut on the cricut and coloured with distress inks then stamped with a little swirl stamp - the centre is another clay face - I spent the entire day Sunday making loads of shapes out of clay and cooking them, or letting them air dry now I have loads to use!! bit of white hi-lighting and a few gems finished it all off.....

This month on SCD we also have our very first GD joining us. Kath has agreed to do our tag month and we are really pleased to have her join us. As you all remember Kath, Dawn and I used to be on the TYI team...so its nice to be back together again for the month.

I hope that you all pop on over to SCD and see the fabbie tags that the dt and our special GD have come up with and I'm hoping that you'll all be inspired to give it a go and join us this week.
