My second post today is for the Craft Barn Challenge
My wish had been cgranted this week thanks so much for choosing
my wish!

This is my creation ive made a tag used the new Tim Holtz colour wash distress inks to ink my tag in Wlanut stain .I then added Rangers alcohol ink mixatives gold and heated to dry it.This piccy ive had for sometime and just loveee it so romantic.The pearls are from Prima

The ribbons and lace i bought when i was home in a wee fab shop calls Boyes.
I have stuck all 3 to the bottom of the tag,so the ribbon embellished with beads hangs below.
The wee gold rose was a charm id had for awhile and the Tag Dream was sent too me in an RAK swap

Now i hear you say my wish was to make Concentina flower/Rossette flowers for people who hadnt got die cut machines (even though i have to say what a fab challenge ive come to conclusion got too bigger
Anyway if you check out the Craft Barn Blog you will see the many ways the dt made these flowers .So muggins here had fab idea to use a Friskas Edges ruler to get the effect and scored the strip papers and on 4th time this is what i completed the Rossetta Concentina Flower.
Boy do i need practise.....Then for the middle i stuck a Tim Holtz ideo-logy charm to the middle

Close up of the couple
Here's the Home Made flower close up!
Have fab Sunday i do hope ive done this flower and the dt team at the Craft Barn justice!
Also i would like to enter it into this wonderful blog i happen to come by is:
