My First Ever Challenge Attempt

It has struck me while reading everyone else's blogs how many people take part in challenges on a regular basis and what wonderful things they make.

I thought I did not have enough crafting time to take part in these and as card making is not my first love, being mainly a scrapbooker, card challenges do not really appeal.

I then discovered Dragonsdream Tag It On which is a tag challenge site. Now tags are definitely up my street so I've decided to have a go and this is my very first challenge entry. The theme is Tide and Time and must include some stamping. Mine only includes very small stamped clocks, which I have cut out, but I hope that is enough.

The main tag was cuttlebugged with swirls after I had inked the folder with colorbox shades of blue inks to represent waves and then sprayed with Sapphire glimmer mist on the corner I stuck the swirls on to make them stand out.

I coloured the clocks with cosmic shimmer indigo sky paint and then made the embossed swirls by drawing round part of a glimmer screen, cutting it out and embossing with Cosmic shimmer Arctic Lake embossing powder a couple of times to get a nice covering.

The title was printed onto paper spritzed with starburst stain, cut out and inked round the edges.
Little blue gems were added as a finishing touch.

I have enjoyed messing about with this and am looking forward to what this weeks theme will be.
