Rhubarb Crumble and Custard

Goodness what another weekend of weather. It has poured down here all afternoon and we went swimming this morning so it has been a very watery day all round. Still I got lots of crafting done so I have no complaints really.

Today I have done my entry for the Tag It On challenge which this week was Rhubarb Crumble and Custard. (Pink for the rhubarb, yellow for the custard and texture for the crumble). It had to include at least one stamp and two embellishments.

I have to ponder these challenges for a few days and in the end decided on triple embossing for my texture, which I love doing. I've used 2 different shades of reddish cosmic shimmer embossing powders, Blue raspberry aurora and blue maroon aurora and stamped with gold brilliance ink, not strictly yellow I know but hopefully near enough. The stamp is one of my favourite Heidi Grace flourishes. The little dangly embellishments were made also using a Heidi Grace stamp stamped onto shrink plastic with gold and crimson brilliance inks and shrunk. I've had a lovely afternoon with the heat gun!

I've had a bit of a nightmare photographing it properly so that you can tell it actually is pinky and not blue, it's been hard not to get too much reflection even with all this dark weather!!!!

There are some stunning entries on the Dragonsdream site and they are well worth a look.

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Hopefully the sun will shine tomorrow.
