It's that time again!

Once again there is a new challenge over at the gorgeous Cards Galore Challenge Blog !

I particularly enjoyed this Challenge although I was overtaken by Rainbow fairies and the "tag" challenge grew into "tags" :)

I used one of my favourite stamps, "Little Ballerina", from LOTV. I was only going to stamp one image for a single tag but little rainbow ballerinas were flitting in and out of my mind, so I decided to go for seven images! (As my husband says, "Nothing exceeds like excess!"). I designed the tag shape on my Craft Robo and welded them together to make a concertina tag card.

I airbrushed the background using Copic pens and coloured the ballerinas using the same hue as the background. I then cut seven lengths of white ribbon and used the main colour Copic pen to colour the ribbon to match each tag (I just LOVE the fact that the only plain ribbon I need to buy is white!) To finish I coloured seven clear gems with the same Copic colour as the ribbon. I think this would make a lovely 7th Birthday card for a little Ballerina!

Please travel over to Cards Galore and Enter the Challenge, we would love to see your tags, and each day a new pair of DT tags will be blogged for your  enjoyment and inspiration (we hope!) :) x

That is fab Denyse - the airbrushed backgrounds are really effective, I bet they wouldn't look that nice if I tried!
