TIO- 119 - Don't Fear

Hello, and welcome to another DragonsDream Tag it On Recipe challenge - thanks for your lovely entries last time! This round, sees Silvie setting the recipe "don't fear" and your ingredients on your tag are - a scary image; a crowd of purple, and textures.   Well, Silvie you really really had me struggling with this one! I almost didn't get a tag done - not because there aren't things I find scary, but I don't have the stamps to represent them....or could find any images I could print or cut out.... but.....never call me a quitter!


The purple was no problem, one of my favourite colours, the texture was ok... my spider image is a teeny tiny totally non-scary stamp by Wendy Vecchi, but it's the only one I could find!! The bird is a kind of scary image to me (part of a Crafty Individuals stamp) so hope Silvie lets me off!


I used some viva Croco paste, magic mesh (found whilst rummaging for some inspiration - never used this before, but it's good stuff) and part of an embossing folder of a spider's web (which caused another hole heap of problems as I only wanted to use part of the folder... ended up cutting it out and discarding the rest.)
 The text is a Tim stamp and I stamped some background text onto a couple of flowers for more texture.
Good luck with this challenge, I am sure you will have much better tags than mine to show, I look forward to seeing what you do. You have a fortnight again. Ready, steady, GO!

Gorgeous tag Helen and nice and early for October - though one would be mistaken for thinking it is October now with the weather at the moment!

I really struggled with this one too Helen, but yours if fab, I think those spiders are quite spooky when you have a few of them and that is a very creepy sentiment (one that I NEED lol ) x
