DragonsDream- TIO - R and Music

Welcome along for another tag challenge from the DragonsDream - this fortnight,the lovely Jax would chose the letter R and the theme music, for your tag.  Remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag...

I chose "resist" and "red" for my R..
 Resits for the resist technique - I white embossed a large background music stamp (Impression-Obsession, from their "cover a card" range)
Then added London Bus Fresco paint with cut'n'dry foam, wiping off the embossed area with a babywipe.
 I made some more tissue flowers (and used some of the leftovers from my Darcy challenge journal page (see here) with London Bus and Claret Fresco, the leftovers were Squid Ink and Amethyst.

The sentiments are a Creative Expressions set of Art Sayings which I am ashamed to say I'd forgotten I had, I found them rummaging for the music stamp...
Arranged and glued the flowers round the sayings and added some red ribbon.


Hope you manage to join in with the latest alphabet challenge at the DragonsDream, we'd love to see what you come up with.

I find red really hard to work with but you've really nailed it! Love the contrast between the red and white. Great tag!!

So sorry to have fallen so far behind - but wow it's fun catching up. The white embossed music amidst that vivid red is so cool - and the flowers are lovely. Great tag!
