Green, Die Cuts and Cogs

Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog-a special welcome to my latest followers. The numbers seem to keep creeping up and I do hope everyone who visits finds something that interests them.

I haven't made tags for a while but Janet sent me some wonderful large tag die cuts so I couldn't wait to try one. I saw on Trace's blog a link to Dragon's Dream Tag it On where she has chosen the theme for this week so thought I would join in.


For the background I used the Tim Holtz cogs folder and spritz the background with a pale green. Then I used Stazon Evergreen to highlight the raised cogs. Next I added some die cut  dragonflies that a friend gave me a long time ago The cogs were from Crafty Emblies and I sprayed them with Shimmer Mist. I think that is green, diecuts and cogs covered. All that was needed then was the stamped quote-one I got free with a magazine, distressed edges and some ribbon. I will have to get back into tag making because I enjoyed making this.

Have a great weekend

Love Chrissie xx
