Playing in Paradise Guest Designer

I was so fortunate to have won the challenge over at Scrapbookers Paradise 2 weeks ago, and now I get to be the guest designer!

This week's challenge is a color challenge. These aren't colors I normally choose to use, but I decided to pull out my Distress Inks in Old Paper, Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough and create a tag. I first blended the inks on the background, distressed my edges, used a bit of Vintage Photo, and then gave a spray with blue Smooch Spritz. I used a gears Tim Holtz embossing folder In the top left corner and blended the Iced Spruce over top. Then I stamped Tim Holtz stamps on the bottom and middle and used some Crackle accents on part of the timepiece. I also sponged on ink to add color to the ribbon before tying it on.

This is one of the reasons I love doing challenges; you get to try something you normally wouldn't and then your mind starts thinking about all the other possibilities!

Happy Friday everyone! Have a wonderful, crafty weekend and be sure to play along at the Scrapbookers' Paradise Blog!
