PaperPlay Challenges - Show Your Style

Good morning and happy Thursday. Today is my busy day - food shopping, cleaning, etc, etc, etc.. the usual boring housewifey stuff, lol. 

This week's PaperPlay challenge -  we want to see YOUR style of crafting, whatever YOU are most comfortable doing, whatevery YOU enjoy most. This week it's all about YOU YOU YOU ;)

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, our regular monthly sponsor and the prize is a $15 store voucher to spend on whatever YOU want {<-see, it is all about YOU!! lol }

Hmmm, my style {yes, it's about ME now :D } .. I had to think about this one. I love cute images, I love to colour, I love tags, I love flowers, I love pearls, I love Tim Holtz products, I love Manga, I love lace, I love ribbon and I love love love colour combo challenges!!  So I decided on a tag and for my tag I used an image that I had coloured for the Make it Colourful challenge - Black with a splash of Red - and this is what I came up with.

I used black card as my base tag. My papers are My Mind's Eye - Meadowlark. The background paper has been embossed with the Tim Holtz BINGO folder. All of my papers have been inked with Antique Linen distress inks.

I found this image on the internet.. it was free to take and I couldn't find any copyright on it - I also have no clue who the illustrator is, unfortunately. The copics I used are C8, C5, C3, C1 and R29, R27, R24, R22

The flowers, seam binding and lace are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I am entering this tag into their challenge - White +2 with a Twist. The twist is to use roses, which I have. 

Thank you so much for popping by today. I really appreciate the visit. Please do stop by my wonderful DT ladies' blogs to see THEIR style ;) 

Have a wonderful day
