Go plaid for Wendy

The yahoo group Everything Wendy Vecchi has a 'plaid' challenge this time round - and I wanted to make sure I made this one, as the Olympics schedule has kept me glued to the TV and our successes coming thick and fast - go Team GB!

Anyhow, Lori wanted us to make something with plaid, not from any of Wendy's books this time.

I used the large background stamp for this, and peacock feathers and shaded lilac distress inks, though there is more of the former than the latter!  I went for a tag for speed (had to get back to the sport!)

I stamped 4 of the larger flowers from Accents for Art in peacock feathers ink, and coloured it with shaded lilac and squeezed lemonade.  The centres of the flowers have rock candy distress stickles on - probably should have waited for it to dry before photographing it...

Added rick rack and a Wendy sentiment.




I had a great - if wet - day out yesterday in London, spectating in the pouring rain for the Olympic Marathon. To read about it and see the - very wet! - photos - check my other blog here

I didn't get into the Olympics like I should have the first week they were on due to my button tutorial. Now most of the things I really enjoy have finished. But I sure like that tag. It's a real beauty.

Now I'm off to see your other blog and catch up on all the London activities.

Good morning Helen,

You're pretty tag just confirms what I always say, blue green most certainly should be seen, despite my Gran always said.
