Dragons Dream - Tag It On - Blue - Words

Welcome to another fortnightly challenge from the Dragons Dream Team - this time, the lovely Elizabeth has challenged us to use blue, and words on our tags.

I "may" have a bit of a thing about word stamps and blue is one of my favourite colours, so this was right up my street.  I used some new things I bought on Saturday at Ally Pally.. what luck!

I started by stamping a script stamp in black archival ink on the tag, then used Southern Skies (JoFY limited edition) - slightly watered down, gave it two coats.
I sponged Blue Oyster randomly round the edges and softly across the tag, then stamped the honeycomb/circles from JoFY 32  in Forget Me Not archival.
 added some blue watercolour pencil to some of the circles, and some white Sharpie pen to some of the honeycomb.

The sentiment comes from Sara Naumann ESN12 and I used a blue Faber Castell Big Pitt pen to outline the card.

A piece of new blue ribbon finishes the tag... well almost...
I decided to add some blue and pearl gems to some of the circle centres.

Hope you'll come and join in with the Dragons this time, we'd love to see what you make.  The only rules are a tag, and and least one real stamp, following the blue/words recipe - have fun!

I like the fact there's no central image on your tag. The words are the focus. Those blues are stunningly beautiful too. I NEED them :oD
