every possibilty begins with courage..for dragons dream DT

Well it is a busy day as this is Dt post one of two for today...so I will try and keep this short and sweet. Over at Dragons-dream TIO the lovely Sylvia has chosen our recipe this week and it is ...to use brown, hands and vellum. The only other rule is to make a tag and use at least on real stamp. So here is my make :

So I started to create a brown inky background and layered lots of stamping in inks and distress paints...I love how these combine together to add another layer...these paints are yummy!


 I then added some rusty wire net from the FunkieJunkieBoutique. I added this fab sentiment, a Tim one...and lots of rusty wire...did I ever say I love this ?!

Now for the vellum, I have to admit it is not something I use but I found some and made these flowers and added little clocks for centres.

 Then I added my hands...they could be leaves or ticking clock hands?! I added lots of staples from my mini attacher...love thi too and a bow tied with seam binding dyed in lots of yummy brown distress colours.x

make sure you pop across to dragons-dreamTIO, to see the other fab DT makes and maybe pop in a dream yourself!

have a fun and inky day!
