First Craft Room Challenge Anything Goes.

 Well, the big day has finally arrived, it's the launch of the fortnightly Craft Room Challenge and the first challenge is Anything Goes. A random draw will take place at the end of each challenge and the winner will receive £10 to spend with our sponser Craft Room. I hope you will join in the fun with me and the rest of the Design Team.
My first piece for the Design Team is a tag. I coloured the tag with blue and orange acrylic paint and stamped the dots with coffee Archival ink. I added a piece of embossed card that had been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder done in my Epic 6. The next thing to go on was some corrugated card that I had painted with orange acrylic paint. The main image and sentiment tag were stamped with black Archival ink and coloured with Distress ink. You can't tell from the photo that I'd covered the main image with stickles. The 'say cheese' at the bottom of the tag is a narrow strip of blue card put through a Dymo machine and I put a bit of rusty hinge Distress ink over the top with my finger. I embellished the tag with a camera charm, some gems and ribbon.
Stamps used.
Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, the main image and dotty background.
PaperArtsy, the sentiment tag.
