 Hello everyone.

Gosh, glad you cannot hear what's happening in my background, my son is here this weekend and watching rugby on TV and sort of doesn't agree with the dear..

Anyway, back to my space where the language is all under control and I have a dvd on and going to share a tag I made today..

I started off with stenciling, I went through a phase where it was the best thing to do, then lost interest again, but back into today and stenciled this gorgeous background using Nuvo paste..

The one and only that didn't dry up..

Ta daa..done.... and then I did this!!!!

I sprayed it with oxide ink spray ??

Left over sprayed water card stock for my mushroom.

Then I had an urge to clean my desk off.. I know!
 I'm so strange..

then all this stuff has to go back on...

So back to business as now the background was dry....
see there really was a method in my madness...

I made a little ground with some scrap green card stock, I bought 5 of these A4 pads of dark green card stock, not too thick, just right  and only 2 dollars a pad at our local 123 shop.. awesome.

Then die cut and put together this rabbit, I find it a bit difficult, but got there in the end..

then die cut these cute grass clumps in pale green and dark green..

Tag not too dimensional..

and there we go...all done..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Your background is just perfect to go with the scene you have created with your mushrooms, and I just love your layered bunny!

Firstly I have a husband who can actually lose his voice watching a Gaelic match! Seriously makes me jump and he is generally very quiet spoken and calm. Secondly, I LOVE your desk, so much room there!!!! Your tag of course is absolutely stunning and I love how daring your are with all your pastes and spritzers!! Thank you so much for taking part in my challenge this fortnight Chrissy, you always brighten my day!!

Interesting to see the effect of that oxide spray, it softened everything quite a bit. Which sometimes might be what you want to achieve. Beautiful and sweet details on this tag.

Love how you created the background and as for your cleaning, I wish the inspiration would hit me (my desk is an absolute MESS!). Gorgeous tag.
