JFF "Anything Goes"

This week over at JFF the last in the June challenge run is "Anything Goes" (I sang that LOL). Its always nice to have this theme as a challenge I love to see all the different things folks do. Anyway as I am up to my eyes with order of service, tables decorations and other wedding paraphernalia as the day looms large (3 weeks time and as it is my son I am very excited) I chose to do a small collage tag. I inked background with lilac, bamboo and forest green in a blocks, then used various colour ink to stamp with, the stamps I used are a a lovely french garden set (I forget the name). I used a white gel pen to highlight some stamped areas and then embossed a swirl over the top. The addition of a small flower which I dyed purple and lilac to finish.  
I also made a birthday card for a friend using a completely new technique to me. Pushing resit paste through a mask and allowing it to dry then inking over the top and the masked area remains ink free. I am very impressed with this. Have a lovely week everyone. Hugs XX

Hi Sandra. What a fab tag. Love the embossing on it and the purple flower really brings out the other colours. The card you have made for your friend is gorgeous. She will be thrilled. Have you got a HAT yet!? Hope you show some photos.
