Tuesday Taggers challenge #4

Hello everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Taggers, this week it's to have a go at making your own wrapping paper, create a matching gift tag and card. A first for me, never made my own wrapping paper before but have to say i really enjoyed it and shall definately be doing this again :)
So for my wrapping paper and gift tag i took a plain sheet of paper and with an 'Antique Linen' distress ink pad i wiped the pad directly onto the paper, it covered really well, no streaks. I then stamped a circle, inside the circle stamped the super cute owl, freebie in this months Craft Stamper, with a rose coloured Papermania ink. I added the sentiment 'you're a hoot' which is by Stampendous. I repeated this process for the tag and added the 'Just for You' circle sentiment which was a freebie in the last issue of Creativity and finished with a little ribbon.

For my card i used the freebie owl again, coloured with the Distress ink, papers are Doodlebug and my own background, added Papermania flowers and to the centre i added the lovely handmade flowers i recieved from Julie, the diecut leaves were in a RAK from my friend Tara :)

This week we have a fabulous tutorial, something we plan to do on a regular basis, by Michelle showing you how to create a gorgeous background using pigment inks and mica powder...such a pretty effect !

We also have a lovely prize for this weeks challenge kindly donated by our new sponsor The Craft Barn ! So to find out just what the prize is and to see what ideas the rest of the DT have come up with for the challenge, not forgetting the tutorial too..pop over here..
