DragonsDream - Tag It On - Magical Mystery

This fortnight, my DragonsDream teamie Monique has chosen the recipe for "magical mystery" and we are using a little magic, some mystery and a little fairydust.  We'd love you to dream with us.


I chose the embossing resist technique for my magic as I think it is just magical how this resist works, my mystery is how I created the black circles of paint and the fairydust - well that was easy - glitter!!

 I cut the tag from kraft paper and used clear embossing ink and clear ep, before blending Peacock Feathers distress ink over the whole tag. It worked a treat on the kraft tag.  The swirl stamp is one I got from Ally Pally from Paperartsy (designed for using with the popular Gelli plates) .... I think I want need a Gelli plate having seen a video.....
I did some random stamping of a script stamp  (Paperartsy) and my black circles.... shall I tell?  shall I leave you to guess...



ok, then, I used a Stickles lid dipped in Paperartsy Fresco paint and 'stamped' it on the tag...


Added some diddy die cut poinsettia leaves (Tim Holtz)  in fabric and covered them with Picket Fence distress stickles  and added some dictionary definitions of 'magic' and 'mystery'.  The ribbon was left over from the Crafty Boots Design Team play day, coloured with Peacock Feathers DI and heated to let it crinkle.  Some more glitter was added with a glue pen, randomly dotting it in various places over the tag and covering with glitter.

Step over to the DragonsDream blog to see what my talented team-mates have dreamt up for this recipe - and do please share your tags with us. Don't forget to use at least one real stamp!

Spotted the poinsettias straight away. Love this tag and this resist technique must be one of my favourites. I was guessing a lid off something!
BTW...you MADE me spend money!! I put my snowflakes together which you let me cut at the Crop on Saturday. Had to buy the die. And as I was ordering a DI Festive Berries, fell in my basket. Still trying to work out how!! LOL!
YOUR FAULT!! Well I have to have someone to blame ey!

This is STUNNING. Perhaps my favorite of all the tags you've made. Those white flowers really make the difference.

Sorry I'm so late visiting. I finally got my head out of my basement so I could stop by!
