Dragon's Dream challenge

Hello there, I was so excited by the theme this fortnight over at Dragon's Dream challenge blog that I forgot to commandeer a bear to take the 'how to' shots. Not to worry, Wilbear came and took the after shots at least.

This fortnight's theme was pink, a face and fabric. For the pink I scrumpled my tag then dragged it through two misted puddles of distress ink, I then flattened the tag and dried it.

I added fabric in the form of meshy material to the top left corner, then also added 3 fabric flowers,bottom right, just to make sure I complied with the fabric element of the challenge, I wasn't sure that the mesh would count. The face was stamped directly onto the tag to achieve a background, then the main elements of the image were re stamped, cut, and adhered to the tag, to make them really stand out.

Thanks to the Dragon's team for a great challenge, I really enjoyed this one.

Before you go, if you like challenges, why not enter our just for fun, literary based challenge. This month's challenge uses quotes as inspiration. You can find all the details here, and as we merged this challenge into May, you still have a month to enter. :)

With love from the bears.


  1. Gorgeous tag - I love the idea of inking the crumpled tag :-) I might just have a go at that. Do you have to dampen it a bit first or totally dry ????

  2. Spritz the distress inks on your heat resistant mat, drag the dry tag through, then spritz the tag to spread and blend the inks, flatten it as you dry it. It makes for a great effect.

    1. Sorry we mean Swipe your distress inks onto your mat, spritz them with water until they begin to bubble

  3. I love this. The colours and the image are great.

  4. Fabulous tag. Great take on the recipe... Thank you for dreaming with us at Dragons Dream... May x
