 Hello everyone,

Back with a silhouette project number 2..

I also had a great day yesterday playing with my gel plate, but it is round, I like rectangle so went online and bought a bigger one, oooo, I'm so naughty, but made some really cool backgrounds, and I'll share those soon, might play with the big one today...

Oh, rightio, I'm sharing today, the photos were in this folder, ha ha ha..
But aren't they cool, just water drops on the ink and smoosh down,
 no don't smoosh, just press..

So away from smooshing and stuff, this is my second tag and I just loved the background on this, it was from leftover newspaper over sprayed and glued it onto cardstock and then sprayed it some more..

Lots of shimmer as my top and last spray was TH Mica Stain 
Hocus Pocus.
Then I stamped a Simon Says Stamp,  thick stamp called 'Wild Flowers,' it's a background stamp, and stamped it about 10 times to get it to show up..then I embossed it..

I embossed these little pretties too..

and these..


Gluing down was an effort too, nothing wanted to stick..

Added the Fairies and made the hole in the top..

This one sitting there looking all ethereal,
 and I love the tiny black flower embellishments candy..

and there's my tag,
 All done...

So, there you go, 
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
