Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Use a Tag!

Hello, how are things in the world of you?

I’m back as there is a new challenge starting over at Chocolate,Coffee and Cards today and our theme is Use a Tag!

Our sponsor this time is
I used their cute hedgehog image called Hedgie with Flowers, available here. 

I have to say that I love digis. They are so versatile and I love how you can manipulate and re-size them to fit your project! I did struggle a bit with this card though as the old mojo is still absent!  It sent me a postcard from the Algarve; having a lovely time apparently!! L

The idea was simple really! The enlarged image would have a tag on the flowers and on that tag there would be a smaller version of the image, and on that one there would be yet another tag with an even smaller version of the image!! Phew! (I hope that makes sense, if it does could you please explain it to me!!) It was going to get smaller and smaller but with my eyesight I would have needed the telescope from Jodrell Bank to see it so that put paid to that!

Stamps: Sentiment free from a mag
Dies:  Tonic ‘Nesting Rectangles’- Tattered Lace ‘Mini Blooms’ – Sue Wilson ‘Fern Trio’ – X-Cut ‘Mini Butterfly’ Palm Punch
Paper/Card: LOTV ‘Bonnets & Bowties’ patterned and ‘Solids’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Markers & Pencils – ‘Peacock Feathers’ & ‘Picked Raspberry’ DI
Others: Twine, gems and eyelets from stash
