Tando Distressing Week

lol its not what it sounds!! the theme this week over on the Tando Creative blog is Distressing and today its my turn to showcase my piece.

I've made a tag:-


I've taken a tag base and coloured it with distress inks then the edges were distressed, inked and doodled I then stamped my fav Cherry Pie crackle stamp for the background.  Using the same three inks I've coloured the Tando white lined twinchie and stamped with a Paperartsy Lynne Perrella stamp which I've then added hi-lights the edges were then scraped with scissors before adding black paint.  The Tando mini arrows were coloured using distress inks and then edged  The butterflies were covered using a page from an old book and then the edges distressed and inked,  A bit of tape, some bling and ideology bits added to a piece of ribbon which had been coloured using the same colours in distress stains finished it off!

There have been some great pieces by the DT this week over on the Tando blog do pop on over and see!

So love this tag, Carol - what a fab mixture of colours and images... the arrows give it such movement as well as dimension!

Haven't noticed a massive spamming increase - have to say I really don't understand why spammers spam - surely nobody ever clicks so what do they get from it?!

Hi Carol, Love the tag.

I was also having massive problems with Spammers so put the old verification of (much as I hate them) for a few weeks, took it off again and seems fine for now (famous last words!!!)
