Be the Smile.. It's a That's Crafty Challenge REMINDER..

Hello Creative Friends,

It's time to remind you of the Challenge going on over on the That's Crafty Blog..

If you'd like to share your creative side with us we'd love to see you over THERE
Pop on over and read those entry rules there's prizes to be won.. !!

*Here's a little That's Crafty creation and how it came to be..*

Scraping paints onto a greyboard Tag I created a background

Stamping Lynne's sunflowers onto rice paper using versafine 
the images were gently torn around and pasted onto the tag 
with a watered down solution of multi purpose glue.

Painted with multi surface paints you see how the image 
continues along the edge of the tag...

A large flat back gemstone embellishes the middle sunflower with black and white 
pen bringing out parts of the image that may have been lost during painting.

Onto rice paper I stamped a sentiment from the same set and adhered it to the tag.

A ribbon bow attaches the tag to a card making it easier to be removed
if the recipient wishes to display it making an extra sweet little gift.

My *Be the Smile* Tag Card is complete.

Thank you for stopping by and please don't forget to check out what 
the super talented That's Crafty Team have created to inspire you.

Wishing the brightest of days
and Crafty Hugs
