yepperz ~ got scrappy happy again ~ and did the challenge over at ~ Tag You're It ~ for this week, which is to scrap a tag using purple. yep..the hardest color for me to scrap. ACK! don't know what it is about that color ~ i just can seem to get scrappy happy with it ~ anyhoo..i just had to give the TYI challenge a go this week ~ and *just do it* ~ pretty happy with the outcome..and beleive me..i had to scrounge for that color of pp..don't have much of it! the blueish background was purple pp, spritzed with turquoise glimmer mist and then stamped ~ with added pearlx. the image is stamped on purple pp then touched with blue and purple watercolors. the layout is of our precious granddaughter ~ the bird (at the top of the lo), centre strip and chipboard are stamped with ~ Layers of Color ~ stamps. the flowers and bird are handcut with added stickles.
well..that's it for the scrappy goodies ~ tired this evening ~ yep, gonna veg tonight ~ blog it ~ and catch up on everyone and see whatcha been creating. hugz
