It's Raining ??? Not really

It’s Raining… what a wonderful thing it would be if it truly was raining… we need it really desperately…. We are officially in a drought…  only having had 1.2 inches of rain in the month of July… for a farm that is horrible… anyway.. I will stop my ‘waffling’ and move on with my tag…. 

Wish it was raining!!!

This tag is for a couple of challenges… the first one being Grungy Monday… the challenge was to use Distress Stickles… by Tim Holtz…. Oh yes… not a problem at all… I used them in the center of the Ornate plates… where I put a tiny flower and leaves that I made from some metal… and then filled in with the Distress Stickles… how pretty is that… ??? Love the look in real life… things seem to get lost on line… and also in a picture… 

Oh well… so the other Challenge is for Simon Says Stamp andShow… and to use Glitter glitz… so I made the rain drops from rhinestones…  and it is glittery…

The Tag is also a Ranger kraft brown tag… and it is so different to work on it…  I distressed the edges… and colored with my Tim Holtz Distress stains… which I happen to LOVE…. Maybe even more than LOVE… is there such a thing…

I embossed the umbrella man and also the old timey car… and ran distress ink pads over them… and then spritzed the umbrella man with a mini mister that had some perfect pearls and distress ink it in… wow… I stamped words all around them… and then tore the edges and used the misc pieces all around the tag…  Of course my seam binding ribbon was made when I cleaned up the mess on my table from spritzing the mini mister… what a perfect pair that is… a clean up cloth and ribbon all in one item… LOL…  GREAT GOING….

So that is my tag… didnt know what I was going to do… and it is one of my favorite tags so far… okay… each time I make something it is my favorite for a while… are you like that??? I guess we all are??? 

Well have a great day… enjoy the day to the fullest… and have fun… thanks for stopping by for a visit… see you soon hopefully…
Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie
