DragonsDream TIO - D - Red

Hi, time for another DragonsDream challenge at TIO - this fortnight, May would like us to use the letter D and red.
 I think you may be able to guess what my word is!!
I started by embossing the hearts (Dina Wakley) on the tag and painted the tag with Cherry Red Fresco (from the second of JoFY's Limited Edition sets)
I stamped the large Dream (Clarity, from on of the word chain sets) at the top in black archival, and then repeatedly stamped the Ompression Obsession stamp in Wendy Vecchi's red geranium archival ink..




but forgot to take a photo before I sprayed the tag with the Prima Colour Bloom spray Peony.
It's um - quite shimmery!!

 this one taken without flash shows it a little clearer!
I distressed the edges and inked it with first the red archival and then Walnut Stain distress ink,
 added a chitchat sticker and some red fibres with just a little white for contrast
Hope you'll find time to check out the rest of the Dragons tags, and have a go yourself - we'd love to see you join in - just don't forget at least one real stamp.
It's nearly time for a new theme as we're almost at the end of the alphabet - wonder what the Dragons will come up with!!

Hello Helen!! So sorry about the name mixup - I have no idea where that came from. Is there a Helen Chilton? Do I even know them? Why was that name in my head? Sorry sorry sorry - but I WAS thinking of YOU. Can you forgive me!? Cindy x

I see what I did - there is another Helen on the dt isn't there? Sorry I read the other post and got muddled up - I did think that one with the Lynn perella stamp was you as well, didn't read it properly and I think that's where the Chilton was in my head. I am such an idiot. Need more sleep but keep crafting when I should be in bed....
