seeing red for dragons dream DT

well it is time for another non-cooking over at dragons dream Tag it on and this time chosen by the lovely Helen. So the recipe this time is red, book pages and or text and an embellishment.
Oh and don't forget to use at least one real stamp, make a tag and most of all have some fun!!

So here is my make :

I have to admit is truggled with the whole red thing as it is not my usual colour...but i decided to go for it!! I used some of the fab Tim rub ons a s a resist inspired by Tims tag for May 2013....I also used some old torn book pages too. They soaked up the distress stain a treat.


I added some flowers, die cut and the over stamped with text to continue that theme and added flower embellishments for the centres. Some dyed seam binding finishes of the top.


 I also added a heart covered with embossing paste through a text stencil and another fab rub on. well must dash...

have a fun and inky day

  4. Wow! Red may not be your usual thing (me either!), but you've pulled it off brilliantly with this amazing tag... Glorious texture from all that text, and the rub-ons are so effective. A great make, Trace!

  5. So lovely Trace. I can see why it would be outside your comfort zone with the colour but everything else is Trace to a tee - hearts, texture, ink etc, etc. It works perfectly.

  17. Morning Trace, I must admit that red is not a colour I would normally go for either, but your tag is stunning !! I love the colours you have put together, they complement perfectly, and the torn bookpages add that special something, along with the gorgeous embellies. Stunning tag.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
